North Shore Camping Co. Get Here. Get Outside. Play Awhile.

Looking for a place you can relax or adventure at whim? Do you love the great outdoors, but prefer a comfortable mattress to waking up on a deflated air mattress? We are with you. Get with us and get yourself to North Shore Camping Co. in Beaver Bay, Minnesota next year. We mean it. Reserve now. Get here!

Our tälts are fully outfitted with everything that you need to make the most of your North Shore Nature time. 

We provide a picnic table, campfire seating, and a bear resistant food locker large enough for your cooler, your friend’s cooler, and the next door neighbor’s cooler, too. Lanterns and flashlights? We’ve got those. Dishes and dishwashing supplies? Check. Need to charge your cell phone or laptop? We’ve got that covered.

We also have a 5 gallon water dispenser, kettle, French press, can opener, corkscrew, and our very favorite feature… a Grillmaster X-series Breeo firepit for all of our sites. The campfire is the most important part of camping, right?  Each of our tältplats hosts the ultimate campfire cooking experience. It doesn’t matter which way the wind is blowing, with this smokeless firepit every seat around the campfire where you want to be.

There’s a lot to do here if that’s your thing…or this is also the perfect place to kick back and do absolutely nothing. Just do what suits you best and makes you happy while you’re here. That’s all we ask.  Well…almost. We’d also really love for you to create meaningful memories that last, have a fantastic time, learn about our natural world around us…and if we’re being totally honest – we’d totally dig it if you became one with the rhythm of the forest so that we can hypnotize you into coming back to see us again and again. We think that would be a pretty great thing for our first season. 

It could happen, right? Nature IS a special kind of magic. 

North Shore Camping Co. sites are all within a few minutes’ walk of our Base Lodge, which will house our camp store, lounge, and our modern, spa-like, beautifully clean, so relaxing that we might have to pry you out so that everyone gets a turn bathrooms and showers. We’ve got everything you need. You just bring you, and anybody you’d like to spend quality time with. 

Please leave anyone you don’t want to spend time with at home. It saves a bunch of trouble for everyone in the long run. Trust us, we know. We camp for living now. 

For those of you who have the need for spead or a tendancy to fancy a wander, foot and bike paths will call softly to you during your sleep until you just won’t be able to resist. 

The Split Rock Wilds Mountain Bike Rrail beckons just over the hill, and the Superior Hiking Trail is footsteps away.  All that separates us from the waves of Lake Superior and scenic Cove Point (accessible for our guests) is the Gitchi-Gami Bike Trail, which will lead you to Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls State Park.

Venture further out into the Superior National Forest, Finland State Forest, and George Crosby Manitou State Park.

 Find waterfalls, follow rivers, and fjord streams. Kayak pristine lakes. Paddle the day away. Enjoy a picnic with a view. Climb, hike, bike, and explore the shore.

Or just…relax! We’ll have books for you to read, board games for you to play, and campfire activities for you to participate in. We’ve got a place for your family to spread out and play, and yard games of all sorts. 

And…as if that’s not enough…

North Shore Camping Co. guests will also enjoy all the amenities of Cove Point Lodge just down the hill, including the pool, hot tub, sauna, and 1,000 feet of Lake Superior shore to explore. 

Ready to get here? We thought so. We’re now taking reservations for our 2023 summer and fall seasons. We’re not sure why you haven’t reserved already. What are you waiting for? 

We’ve got all this is store for you, and so very much more!

Terms and Conditions
Get Quiet and Get Up: Quiet hours are 10:00 p.m to 6:00 a.m You don’t have to get inside at 10:00 p.m. but we do ask that you turn off any amplified sound, and keep your voices around the campfire to a reasonable level. Some of us have morning coffee to make as adventure beckons each morning. 

Get Clean:
 All of our sites are within 400 feet of our Base Lodge, which houses our modern (we can’t wait for you to see them) restrooms and showers.

Get Green
: No guest vehicles, including ATV’s or snowmobiles, are allowed outside the designated parking areas. We’ll get you and your belongings to and from your site at check in and check out. The rest is up to you.

Get your Friends Here, but
…all visitors must register at the Base Lodge.  Four visitors maximum per site. All visitors must be accompanied by an NSCC guest, and must get themselves to our gates by 8:00 p.m.

Get your Dog on Vacation:
 Dogs are allowed, 2 dogs per site. But we really do like dogs, and we hate the thought of anyone staying at home – so please do contact with special requests.

Humans must do all the basic dog things – leashed if not in your campsite, and always leashed if your four legged friend has an inclination to roam. Pick up after your dog, take care of your dog, limit the barking of your dog… and basically be a good dog human. When you get here, there will be something you’ll sign that means that you agree to take good care of your dog. We know that your dog will take good care of you – they don’t have to sign anything. 

Got other Pets?
 We’ve taken our cats camping. While we do love cats, and would be game for giving yours a chase around the woods when he or she decides to go feral because sometimes it’s fun for us, and we need the exercise, and sometimes it’s great entertainment for others… but we’re going to respectfully ask that you leave your feline friends at home. Contact us about other pet needs or requests.

Get Your Trash Out:
 All garbage should be taken out of your site at night, or when you will be gone for an extended period, and put in the garbage cans along the main trail.
Do not dump food waste, dishwater, or other items that may attract animals at campsites. We provide trash bags.
Get Bear and Critter Safe: Each site has a Bear Locker, and any food or beverages being kept onsite overnight must be fully inside this locker. Our lockers have room for your cooler, your friend’s cooler, and your other friend’s cooler too.

Please don’t feed any of our critters. They’ve been getting along for many years without us, and we’d like them to continue on in the same manner after we’re all long gone.
Don’t ride any moose, don’t chase a bear, and please don’t lasso the deer. We mean it. We know it’s tempting, but please. Leave our creatures be.

Get Fired Up:

Campfires need to be under your control and attended at all times.
To protect our forest, firewood cannot be carried in from off-site. Please don’t bring us harmful insects and decimate our ecosystem. It’s just rude, right? We promise not to bring any bugs to your house. 

We do provide one bundle of wood each day, and additional bundles may be purchased at our Base Lodge.
Do not burn trash or plastic. If you do, we’ll ask you to get right on out.

Getting Basic:

Cutting of trees and brush is prohibited, and our downed trees are part of our vibe. Let them do their thing and grow fungi. Don’t be a a downer – please don’t burn wood from our forest floor.
No hunting or trapping is allowed on NSCCo property – that’s not anything we want to explain to anybody’s kids.

Getting Lit: Fireworks are not allowed. Never, ever, never.Not allowed, ever. 

Get Ready: All joking aside…we can’t wait for you to get here. We’ve been working, and working, and we’re so happy to finally be sharing our dream with you!
