The North Shore is one of the best places in all of the U.S. and Canada to see the spring and fall bird migration, and Grand Superior Lodge sits in the heart of the pathway.

Lake Superior’s shoreline is a bird highway. Summer nesters begin arriving as early as April with massive flocks flying over the last few weeks of May. During this time, keep an eye out for soaring Bald Eagles, and if you’re lucky, a Peregrine Falcon. While loons do not nest on the big lake, you will see Minnesota’s state bird travel north in the spring and south in the fall. We highly recommend you visit nearby Gooseberry Falls State Parks (a mere two miles up the road), which hosts over 150 different bird species. The park provides lakeshore, river mouth, forest and inland ridge habitat making it a bird watchers paradise.



The North Shore offers some of the best snowmobiling in Minnesota, and Grand Superior Lodge offers direct access to the C.J. Ramstad/North Shore Trails and much more.

If you love to walk or hike, you’ll be a natural at snowshoeing. It’s all the enjoyment of a winter walk without sinking in the snow up to your thighs, and snowshoes are complimentary at the Front Desk!

Stop by, grab a pair and head out to track winter wildlife, tramp through the woods, listen to the sounds of winter in the forest and capture photos of the beauty of winter. Snowshoeing is a great mental retreat and a great workout. Hike at your own pace, breaking trail or follow a pre-set trail. Note – snowshoe etiquette says no ‘shoeing over cross-country ski trails as it ruins the tracks/trail.

Spring, Summer, & Fall


North Shore golf courses incorporate the natural landscape, highlight views of Lake Superior, accommodate for the occasional wild critter, and challenge the golfer. Grand Superior is pleased to offer three public courses, two that are just a few minutes away and one that is an hour away.
