Judge C.R. Magney State Park, nestled along the rugged North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota, is a pristine wilderness area renowned for its stunning waterfalls, dramatic landscapes, and abundant recreational opportunities. Named after Clarence R. Magney, a former mayor of Duluth and justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court, the park offers visitors a chance to experience the natural beauty and tranquility of Minnesota's Northwoods.

One of the park's most iconic features is the Devil's Kettle waterfall, a unique geological formation that has long intrigued visitors with its mysterious disappearing act. Here, the Brule River splits into two separate waterfalls, with one side plunging dramatically into a deep pothole known as the Devil's Kettle, while the other side cascades downstream. The fate of the water that disappears into the Devil's Kettle has puzzled scientists for years, adding to the allure of this natural wonder.

In addition to the Devil's Kettle waterfall, Judge C.R. Magney State Park offers a variety of outdoor activities for visitors to enjoy. The park features miles of hiking trails that wind through old-growth forests, along rugged cliffs, and past scenic overlooks, providing opportunities for hiking, birdwatching, and wildlife observation. Popular trails include the Hiking Club Trail, which leads to the Devil's Kettle waterfall, and the Brule River Trail, which follows the course of the river through the park.

For those seeking a longer adventure, the park offers backpacking and camping opportunities in a remote and secluded setting. Rustic campsites are available for tents and small trailers, providing a chance to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the wilderness. Campers can enjoy evenings around the campfire, stargazing under the clear night sky, and falling asleep to the soothing sounds of the nearby river.

Judge C.R. Magney State Park is also a popular destination for fishing, with the Brule River offering excellent opportunities for trout fishing throughout the year. Anglers can try their luck casting for brook trout, rainbow trout, and steelhead while enjoying the peaceful surroundings of the river.

Whether you're exploring the trails, marveling at the waterfalls, or simply enjoying the solitude of the wilderness, Judge C.R. Magney State Park offers a memorable and immersive outdoor experience for visitors of all ages.
