Two Island Lake Campground

Two Island Lake Campground is near Grand Marais, but off the beaten path.  It offers the services of a fee campground with water, toilets, and trash containers, plus a boat ramp on a lake filled with walleye, smallmouth bass and northerns.

For an even more secluded camping or canoeing experience, the nearby Twin Lakes Canoe Route offers backcountry canoeing and campsites similar to those in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  See the Camping and Twin Lakes Canoe Route information sheets for more details.

The Eagle Mountain Hiking Trail is four miles to the west of Two Islands and provides a hike into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to the top of Minnesota’s tallest peak, Eagle Mountain.  A trail map with more information about travel in a wilderness area is available.
