Set in the heart of northern Minnesota, Cadotte Lake Campground is situated in one of the state’s premier areas for camping and recreation. It rests in Superior National Forest, putting you in the pawfect position to explore the campground’s awesome setting and the numerous activities nearby. You can also bring your dog along with you since the campground is pet-friendly!
Cadotte Lake Campground houses 8 campsites, and the maximum number of campers per site is 9. The nightly fee for a site is either $19 or $21, but long-term seasonal sites (125 days starting May 1) for RVs can also be booked for $910. Fees don't apply during the winter months, but there are no amenities available during this time, either. In season, the campsites are equipped with picnic tables and campfire rings. Other amenities at the campground include a playground for the kiddie campers, a boat landing, a sandy beach for lake access, and a fishing deck.
If you want to explore some of the region’s best trails, you can head east to the coast of Lake Superior — you’ll find over twenty trails to choose from, most of which are dog-friendly! Fifth Falls and Superior Hiking Trail Loop is a nice choice for a pleasant stroll with your woofer. It’s just over three miles, and it features spectacular views of the falls. For a slightly more challenging hike, you can head to Superior Hiking Trail’s Split Rock Ridge segment. This five-mile loop trail has an elevation gain of over 600 feet and follows the Split Rock River. Avid hikers will also enjoy Gitchi Gami Trail — it covers over 17 miles!
Please make sure your dog stays on-leash throughout your stay at Cadotte Lake Campground. Also, remember to clean up after your furry friend. The maximum length for RVs at the campground is 45 feet. Campers note that noise from the train nearby can sometimes be heard, but the campground is usually quiet.
