I found Gunflint Pines on the internet. We wanted to camp in our motor home on the Gunflint Trail. Sandi and Sherri were gracious hosts. The campground was quiet. The campsites were spacious, and although we had neighbors, the sites were spaced far enough apart we never heard them and seldom saw them. We had a very short walk to the dock and campground store. Age (75) and distance (1100 miles) may prevent us from returning, but if at all possible we'll definitely make the trip. We loved the place.
We loved our time here. We stayed at the lake house, it’s a bit on the side but absolutely beautiful. We hiked Eagle Mountain, Moose Lake (didn’t see a moose), Magnetic Rock, Blueberry Hill. Went to Grand Marais, Canoed to Canada, went to what the kids named skip rock point (where they learned to steer) and many others.
Campfires, swimming, and we loved it was dog friendly. Loved talking to Shari and learning the history of the resort. She made sure we had everything we needed whether it was extra paper towels or garage bags. We felt very taken care of.
I did read the review on towels. Maybe my experience in camping but we brought our own towels because I wasn’t expecting them to be provided! It was wonderful to have extras.
We stayed in the Lake House with our daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandchildren. Grandparents had the master bedroom and everyone else slept in the loft. The cabin is set away from the campground, has its own beach, canoe and fire pit. Over our one week stay, we built campfires, canoed, swam, hiked trails, visited the Chik-wauk museum, played cards and watched DVD's. Oh, of course, we went to the store for candy :) Shari and her staff were hospitality plus! The pines smell wonderful, stars are awesome--forgot to mention we laid on the dock several nights and looked at the stars and meteors. We watched out grandkids learn how to paddle a canoe--all by themselves. They cheered me on to jump into the lake and I did. So many memories were created during this week. I am happy there are resorts/campgrounds like Gunflint Pines and owners like Shari who care about their guests.
My husband and I rented a camper cabin for our first camping trip with our 8 mo daughter and now I may never go back to tent camping! The cabins were clean and airy and exactly what we needed to break us into camping with her. This campground is so beautiful and Shari is so accommodating! She answered all of our questions and made us feel right at home! The area is beyond beautiful and we are so happy we stumbled upon this CG in our search! Our daughter and dog were both in outdoor heaven! Renting the pontoon was a highlight of our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed s’more night by the lake! We will be back again for sure! Thanks Shari :)
First off the owner is not very hospitable usually when people are spending money at your establishment you try to be a little friendly not this woman should leave the business if you are not happy. Then the towel deal one bath towel per guest one hand towel and one wash cloth we were there five days four nights and never brought clean towels you could get clean ones for five dollars per person per day. Come on really way to get your money mouse poop in the silverware drawer. If it weren't for having time together with our children we would have left.not the best vacation. Would not stay here again if it was free.
