We've camped on the North Shore for several years now,(with a popup and now TT) and live in northern MN. Big animal sightings in campgrounds aren't too common, now skunks and racoons are another story. Just use common sense, put away food, garbage, anything that attracts them. We usually leave our grill on the picnic table, but it's locked to the table with a bike lock so they can't knock it down or try to drag it away. Last summer we also spent a couple nights at Kackabecka Provincial Park, it has a beautiful waterfall and is just a short drive from Thunder Bay. Also drove to Sleeping Giant Provincial Park for the day, about an hour or hour and a half from Thunder Bay. Very nice. Highly recommend Fort William Historical Site in Thunder Bay, and Grand Portage National Monument on the states side. Would definitely make the trip again. MN welcomes you, enjoy your visit!
