Black River Harbor Recreation Area is composed of the Campground, the Harbor and adjacent picnic grounds and waterfall observation facilities. The campground is a modern facility with flush toilets, sewer dumping station, pressurized water system, and 40 paved camping spurs. The campsites can accommodate tents, trailers and motor homes. Seven campsites provide overlooks to Lake Superior. Each campsite is bordered by vegetation providing privacy for a quiet enjoyable experience.
The Harbor offers one of the area's few access points to Lake Superior, with boating being a major summertime activity. There is no launching fee, however, there is a fee for transient docking. Boat fuel is available and there is ample parking for tucks and trailers.
Tall hemlock and pine surround the Black River Harbor day use area. Picnic tables and grills are available for visitors, as well as an enclosed pavillion with fireplace, which can be reserved for special events. Access to the beach and North Country National Scenic Trail are by crossing the area's unique suspension bridge.
There are five distinct and picturesque waterfalls within the Recreation Area that you won't want to miss. All are accessible by traveling County Road 513 or by hiking the North Country National Scenic Trail northward from the Harbor parking lot or southward from Conglomorate Falls parking lot.
