We LOVED spending time on this beach. It was pretty clean, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Naturally, there is no admission and there is a park nearby. The water was too cold for us, but there were those brave souls who dared...More

Trails make it easy for the casual walker to get up the dune and over to the beach. The sand is deep and it is not easy for a handicapped person to navigate. Also - there is a lot of poison ivy along the trails,...More

I was ecstatic to see the fine sand at this beach but the sand can be very hot during warm days. You can't walk barefoot on it unless your walking by the water. Lots of things to do outdoors here if you don't like sun...More

I was stationed at Duluth IAP in 1977. We use to go smelting at Park Point every year. Does the lake still produce smelt at Park Point?

I know they were smelting there as of 2014......but it does seem better around Lester River and other rivers up the North Shore.

To get up close you will need tickets. Check the festival website. This is a HUGE event in Duluth, so be prepared to stand on line for many things. Where the ships are, there is very little shade, so you might consider... More
