In Lutsen, Cascade River State Park offers an easy hike to see the waterfalls and small cascades. Stand on the footbridge that spans the river, or at any of the viewing spots above the river, to see and feel the water cascade down a volcanic canyon. Spring offers the strongest flows, but every season delights. In fall, the boreal hardwood-conifer forest of aspen, birch, fir, spruce and cedar dazzles a brilliant palette of orange, brown, yellow, and red. In winter, snowshoe to the striking beauty of frozen waterfalls. There are tent, RV, group, and backpacking campsites.
