The map shows it over by cook but it's actually between Soudan and Ely. It's a beautiful area to hike and snowshoe around. It's a little over seven miles to see it all. Most of its wide enough to have a separate snowshoe and ski track. You do need a parking pass since it's a state park but well worth the $5 and make sure to stay off the groomed ski trails at the north end of bear head lake around the campground area.
Great place to snowshoe, able to rent a cabin right off the lake. Cabin includes two bunk beds and electricity,an outhouse in the middle of the cabin area a hand pump water spicket (frozen in the winter ) ,a great trail center with a fireplace and microwave. Overall thick wooded area, beautiful nature. Sighted a few deer on the road ways drive with caution.
