Minnesota State Shutdown Will Have an Impact on North Shore Visitors

June 30, 2011

Looks like state parks will be closing at 4:00 pm today. That means no camping or facilities available to visitors. However 1) there are lots of great private campgrounds and US Forest Service campgrounds in our area; & 2) state park trails & beaches will remain open for day use during the shutdown.

If you need fishing or boat licenses, today is likely to be the last day to get them for a while. Here’s a link to help you order your licenses online or by phone: https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/index.html
