The official information center for the communities of Lutsen - Tofte - Schroeder, Grand Marais, Gunflint Trail, and Grand Portage. Here in the tip of Minnesota's Arrowhead, amidst the north shore of Lake Superior and the pristine Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), you can go bigger, play harder and relax better than anywhere else in the Midwest. Life is bigger here in Cook County, MN along legendary Highway 61.

Stayed in a great but primitive cabin, had lots of fun! Could hear the Loons out on the lake. The Lake was half in Minnesota and half in Canada. Great fishing!

Our favorite get a way place on our annual summer/fall vacation in Minnesota. Just the drive up along the north shore of Lake Superior is worth the trip. Amazing views

We had a day of rain, so couldn't hike where we wanted to. Stopped in here, and the young lady there was so pleasant and helpful steering us to other hikes and things to do in the rain. Lots of great literature as well.
