Located about 58 miles (93) northeast of Duluth, Tettegouche State Park is one of eight state parks that make up Minnesota’s North Shore experience along Lake Superior.
Primary natural features
The park is home to four waterfalls including high falls, as the name suggests, the highest waterfall entirely in Minnesota territory.
Other interesting facts
The park’s name stems from the Tettegouche Club, an association of local businessmen who purchased the park in 1910 from the Alger-Smith Lumber Company. The Tettegouche Club held the park until 1971 when it sold the park to deLaittres family. In 1979, the state of Minnesota acquired several thousand acres from the Nature Conservancy, including the Tettegouche Club.
