Split Rock Lighthouse DNR

Lighthouse from side

Visited here in 2006. Being one of the parks along the north shore, this place is usually quite busy. The campground is a bit more rustic being only cart-in. The trails I went on were pretty nice. The lighthouse is managed by the MN Historical Society and requires a seperate fee to tour. Didn't spend too much time here since it was getting late.
