McCarthy Beach State Park

McCarthy Beach State Park should be a great place to spend Independence Day weekend.  Everyone will have to reserve there own campsites or share.  I have reserved campsite #28.  There are already a lot of sites reserved so you may need to act fast.  Please note, I am staying Wednesday night to Sunday (4 nights).  You can stay for a shorter time (or longer).  I plan on taking a trip up to Soudan Underground Mine and Vermillion State Parks (right next to each other) on Friday or Saturday.  I'll have a campfire going at no cost for you to sit around /cook over it.

E-mail me if you have any questions.

From the park's website:

Come to McCarthy Beach State Park and you’ll remember the lakes. The sandy beach on Sturgeon Lake was rated one of the top 17 beaches in North America by Highway’s Magazine. Walk along the half-mile of shoreline, or venture out into the shallow water that extends hundreds of feet into the lake.

Launch a boat on Side Lake or Sturgeon Lake to explore the five connected lakes of the Sturgeon chain. Hikers, mountain bikers, and skiers enjoy scenic trails that wind along pine-covered ridges and through stands of birch. Snowmobilers and horseback riders take advantage of the Taconite State Trail to access miles of trails outside the park. Located near many tourist attractions, McCarthy Beach State Park offers opportunities for both relaxation and exploration.

    I plan to be at the park mid afternoon of July 3rd, Wednesday. I would love to hike, go to the beach, canoe, and visit Soudan. Fishing, not so much. Night hike would be fun. Looking forward to camping with less rain and ticks than at Myre Big Island! The weather looks good for the week! Saturday a chance of thunderstorms (30%) otherwise mid 80's and sunshine! Sunday leaving early 7 hr drive home.

      No i am coming alone. I hope to get an unreservable site when i get there. They can't reserve all the sites in advance so inhope to switch my reservable site for one that is non reservable formthe rest of the wknd. Otherwise i will try again on thursday morning but be moving from site to site. Maybe someone will share their site once i get there? You can share with me if you are okay with adventure of moving from site to site:)?

    I don't have anything else reserved for McCarthy. I am hoping to get an unreserved site once I get there on the 3rd. If not I am hoping someone will let me share their site for the rest of the stay...

    I need to carpool with someone, please?! I live in south Minneapolis near downtown.

    At last look, site #31 (in the same camping cluster) was still available. Act fast!

    October 23, 2012

    We are reserved for site #29 on 7/4-7/7. Hope more can make it. Looking forward to meeting fellow campers! I expect we'll be cheating for this one and will be bringing our pop-up.

    October 23, 2012

  • Rob

    Looks like a great park! We might try to make this one. I could have sworn a minute ago it showed the site beside yours available, but now it isn't. Will look again later. More interested in individual side-by-side sites (may be bringing a pop-up) than the group camps. Would just hope to get neighboring lots.

    October 22, 2012

  • Brett

    I would gladly get the group site if we had enough people.

    September 17, 2012

  • Cherie

    I'd be interested if we had the group camping.
