Flickr User: Roebot

If you have not experienced the beauty of the North Shore, you must!  There are so many different areas to explore and marvel at nature and how water and weather have shaped our world.  One such area will be getting an upgrade for your comfort while you explore.  Tettegouche State Park.

DNR and MnDOT officials will break ground on new visitor center and safety rest area at Tettegouche State Park, 5702 Highway 61, Silver Bay, on Friday, July 20, at 11am.

The event will highlight the construction of the new, fully accessible 11,000 square-foot state park visitor center and MnDOT safety rest area. It’s a joint project funded by Minnesota state bonding dollars and Federal Highway Administration funds. The facility will include a number of sustainable energy features funded in part by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR).

It’s expected that the visitor center will serve as a Highway 61 rest area with restrooms available 24 hours a day all year.  The park visitor center will be equipped with interpretive displays to help guests learn about and explore the park, gathering spaces including a great room with fireplace, an open air picnic shelter and a lakeside plaza. It will also have updated administrative offices for the park.
