A bit more about the Western Waterfront Trail - Best North Shore - Best North Shore

A bit more about the Western Waterfront Trail


In my post yesterday, I neglected to mention Indian Point campground (or “campgrounds,” as the sign at the entrance reads). The Western Waterfront Trail curves around Indian Point, and the campground is very visible.Indian Point has a lot of Duluth history to it.  It was the equivalent of today’s Bayfront Park, with picnics and musical performances. 

However, this one historical reference made my skin crawl a bit:


“A distinctive feature of this camp site is its bathing beach on upper St. Louis bay where autoists, dusty from the day’s travel, may indulge in a refreshing dip.”
(Duluth News-Tribune, May 22, 1921)

Since the 1920s, the waters of the St. Louis have turned a bit less refreshing. Fortunately, drivers don’t get quite as dusty, either, what with roofs on cars now.
