Black Beach Park & Campground
The City of Silver Bay and the MN DNR, entered into a Lease Agreement with Northshore Mining for 31.6 acres of property along Lake Superior’s North Shore for the purpose of public beaches. The beaches have quickly become a “hotspot” for tourists traveling the North Shore.

It has 15-sites with 20/30-amp electricity, and 34-sites with 20/30/50-amp electric services and full water and sewer hookups.
