DULUTH, MN -- The Forest Service is closing Superior National Forest lands along the upper portion of the Gunflint Trail due to fires in the vicinity and limited availability of firefighting resources.
This closure includes all forest lands along with Cook County 12/Gunflint Trail beginning at the Cook County 92 Intersection to the end of the Gunflint Trail at Trails End Campground.
Campground reservations have been canceled and refunded for the next seven days, through August 31.
The Forest Service will re-evaluate this closure and determine whether or not it needs to be extended due to active fires.
This closure area also includes Iron Lake Campground.
