Black Beach or Onyx Beach, Minnesota
« on: July 03, 2018, 04:24:55 pm »
Anyone been to Black Beach or Onyx Beach, Minnesota about an hour north of Duluth? We plan on stopping there on our way to the PC Reunion/Rally in Duluth? Can't find too much information on the web. Apparently it is open to the public, but how well marked is it? Is it a well hidden gem or easy to get to? We will be taken our PC to tour, so we don't want any off road trails.

thanks

Been through there many times and never heard of either but I did just come across this website.  http://highwayhighlights.com/2014/11/10-amazing-beaches-on-minnesotas-north-shore/  It appears that there are several places I've missed, Gotta make plans for a return trip to fix that situation.  Every State Park along that road is worth a visit especially Gooseberry Falls.

Enjoy!

We are at Gooseberry Falls now. Just in for a couple of nights. The campground is full. I booked back in March and could only get one night at each site so we're moving sites today. No hookups in the park and we didn't take out all our stuff so not a big deal to move. Checked out lower and middle falls yesterday and planning to do more wandering around today.

That web site is great. We're running up to Grand Portage tomorrow for the living history they do on summer weekends only so we may be able to hit some of those beaches. The site shows the black sand beach at Silver Beach, MN. There is a Black Sand Beach Park. Check out Google maps satellite view for Silver Beach. You can see the black sand beach. We went to one in Hawaii but the sand was from lava. This one is a mineral they mined there.

Please let me know your opinion of Grand Portage as we hope to make it up there for a day. Won't be able to take in the living history, but am anxious to see the falls and all.
