Magical spot with miles of sand beach. A perfect spot to watch the sunrise. All seasons offer the peace and drama of this beautiful lake.

Park Point is my favorite place to go in Duluth. I love to hike the beach or take the trail. Always see a lot of birds when I am there.

The beach is awesome! It's hard to believe your in the middle of the United states. The beach has the feel of the ocean. A day spent at this beach will be memorable.

Park Point is for the adventurer who likes to hike and walk a never ending lake shore. Its picturesque and exhilarating to see the huge ocean appearing lake fron Park Point which splits the two states of Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Park Point has an incredibly beautiful long beach... that is often lacking many people. Lake Superior never really warms up to temperatures conducive to swimming but one can wade on warm days. Lots of sand to play in.

We were there in November and no one was there and it was beautiful, We never knew such a quiet place existed in Canal Park!
