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!).
