Judge C.R. Magney State Park

Judge C R Magney State Park

Judge C.R. Magney State Park is a wonderful state park, located approximately fourteen miles northeast of Grand Marais. Its claim to fame is the famous Devil’s Kettle waterfall, but it is also known for its great hiking trails and trout fishing. When you visit the park, we recommend the following activities:
 
  1. Hike to Devil’s Kettle Waterfall: This waterfall on the Brule River splits in two with one side flowing downstream and the other side disappearing into a mysterious hole known as Devil’s Kettle.
     
  2. Visit the Upper and Lower Falls: The Brule River drops drastically in height throughout the park, creating many falls, including the Upper and Lower Falls. Stop and visit these falls during your hike to Devil’s Kettle.
     
  3. Fish the Brule River: The Brule River is stocked with rainbow and brook trout and a few Chinook salmon. Anglers have occasionally caught other fish such as small mouth bass and northern pike that swam down the river from upstream lakes.
     
  4. Hike Other Trails Within the Park: The park is home to nine miles of trail through the Boreal Forest, with access to the Superior Hiking Trail.
     
  5. Picnic: There are many spots to enjoy a picnic within the park. We highly suggest a spot near the river.
     
  6. Go Snowshoeing: During the winter, snowshoeing is allowed throughout the park. Take advantage of the opportunity to see the park in a different way.
