Jay Cooke is very wooded. This location is pretty far from other activities, but it is pretty in a deep woods kind of way. We liked the hiking trails and swinging bridge. There are campgrounds closer to Duluth and Lake Superior if you are going up there for an event. Nice place. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Even though I was close to other campers, the trees between the sites gave some privacy. Easy wheelchair access, and the showers / bathrooms were spotless. Quiet at night, with only the breezes sounding. Amazing that so many people could be so close together, and yet feel like you are camping miles away from anyone else. EXCELLENT campground, you will not be disappointed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Overall this is a good place for the most part. Since there was rain earlier that Sunday the camp sides were a little muddy, but they were not too bad. If you require the use of a wheelchair like my friend, you better have free carpet in your vehicle to catch the heavy wet gravel/sand that the wheels bring in. The restroom doors are hard to open because of the heavy load springs on them. But they were clean. If you like technology you might want to keep going as myself (sprint) and my friend (verizon) had no cell coverage in the campground, and of course my sprint aircard also was a no worky. A few miles down the road and magic happens they all work. A few sites had a workable southern view for a portable dish and not a roof mounted unit. The pay phone in the campground had no slot for quarters and you needed to use a credit card to use it and if you are unfamiliar with that routine forget trying cause you can make local and 1-800 calls and no charge at the ranger station. I didn't walk the miles of trails but what little I did see of them it is worth staying for that unless you are restricted to the use of a wheel chair and then you need to stick to the paved path . The roads have been redone both ways so it by no means is a rough road anymore. Now we stayed here in a van and not motor home. Fire wood was being sold for $4 a bag. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Excellent park. The scenery in and around the park is very good. We only camped one night so didn't get to see as much of the park as we would have liked. The campground is nice. We stayed in site 39e. It's a smaller site, but worked fine for our class C motorhome. I would have preferred to stay in a more secluded site, but some of those have pretty tight curves and turns to navigate. We will come back to this park in the future. The road into the park on the east side is pretty rough for several miles. I believe they are repairing it this year. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Highway 210 from Carlton to the park entrance is in bad need of repair. However, it is in better shape (and not as long) than the portion from the park entrance to the East. Excellent parking at the Ranger Station, good exhibits and naturalist programs. Behind the Ranger Station is the Swinging Bridge that is a "must see". In fact, photographs of the St Louis River crashing over the falls are breath-taking. We didn't do too much hiking on the South side of the river as it was pretty rocky & more climbing would be involved than we wanted to do. Hiking along the North side was fine. In my opinion, sites 39, 40, 41, 42 & 43 would be a bit snug for larger Class A. 44, 45, 46 (the pull-through) and 47 would work. 57, 61 and 64 would also be fine. Park was well maintained, facilities were clean and in good repair, and the roads in the campground were in fine shape. The poor cell phone signal surprised me since the campground was on a hill. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Scheduled my family for a 2 day stay as a step around Lake Superior. I will go back here for a longer period next year to do some more exploration of the miles of trails. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
