Camping Sept 25-26

My husband and I are planning a camping trip to Duluth for Sept 25-26 (we live in Rochester). I tried to make a reservation at a state park but all 3 that I checked must be full (Jay Cooke, Tetteguche, and Gooseberry). So, now I am trying to decide between Spirit Mountain or Indian Point. Any help would be appreciated. Are the state parks considerably better for tent camping? We are going to be there for 2 days/1 night and won't be spending too much time at the campsite. We mainly just don't want to pay for a hotel!

Also, any advice on activities would be appreciated! We are in to hiking/biking/anything active. We have bikes that we can bring, or we could just hike. We are hoping to see some beautiful fall colors (and not freeze to death overnight!).

Thank you!

If you like to hike, bike or paddle, Indian Point is perfect for you; it's right on the bay. It's also close to the Lake Superior & Mississippi excursion train, which gives rides along the St.Louis River on weekends.

If it's just one night, consider the Munger Inn, which isn't very expensive (they run the campground). It's at the end of the Munger State Trail for bicycling and on the Western Waterfront Trail for walking. The 123rd Avenue trailhead of the Superior Hiking Trail is nearby, midwestweekends.com/plan_a_trip/outdoors_rec…

We have stayed at Indian Point and it's nice. We did also check out Spirit Moutian. I didn't like that it was far from town. I'm not sure if you have a tent or a camper. But if you have a camper the place to camp is at Lakehead Boat Basin. It's just over the lift bridge not ideal for tents.
