Editor’s note: This is the second in a weeklong series on vacation destinations that are close to home. Tuesday’s feature was on canoeing the Mississippi River from Grand Rapids.
What you’ll see: Devil’s Kettle is a waterfall in the Brule River. It’s at the end of a one-mile hike into Judge C.R. Magney State Park. Anglers can catch a variety of fish in the many streams at the park. The camp offers hiking, camping and picnicking.
Directions: Head north on state Highway 61. Go 15 miles past Grand Marais to the entrance of Judge Magney State Park on your left.
Hours: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Labor Day
Cost: $5 parking pass
What’s unique: It’s a split waterfall where half the water continues on to Lake Superior. The other half goes into a large hole in the ground and literally disappears. Many have tried to figure out the mystery, throwing in ping pong balls, dumping in dye, but nothing has ever surfaced to give them clues.
