Top 5 things to do at Judge C.R. Magney State Park

Judge CR Magney State Park_HAnnah_1Judge C.R. Magney State Park comes with a quiet getaway and is also home of the famous Devil’s Kettle waterfall. This park is known for its perfect spots for trout fishing and a variety of trails for hikers to take on. Take a look at the top 5 things to do at this park:

  1. Visit the famous Devil’s Kettle. Devil’s Kettle is this park’s claim to fame. The Devil’s Kettle waterfall  splits in two with one side heading downstream and the other into a deep mysterious hole (Devil’s Kettle). It is known to have no bottom and no one knows where the water in this hole disappears to.  Also, don’t forget about the dramatic Upper and Lower Falls of the Brule River.
  1. Fish the Brule River. The Brule river is stocked with rainbow, brook, and chinook trout along with the occasional salmon to try and reel in. Anglers have even said to have caught small mouth bass and northern pike that entered the river from lakes upstream.
  1. Enjoy a scenic hike. With nine miles riverside and through the forest, this park has to offer a 2.25 mile round-trip trail to the Devil’s Kettle. Also available is the Superior Hiking Trail and a 1-mile self-guided nature trail.
  1. Picnic along the Brule River. As you make your journey to one of the several destinations located in the park, make a pit-stop and enjoy a wonderful picnic listening to the rushing Brule River.
  1. Snowshoe through the park. During the winter season, snowshoeing is allowed all throughout the park. Grab some snowshoes and trek through the snow as you enjoy the icy landscape.

To get to the park from Grand Marais, drive northeast on Highway 61 for 14 miles.
