Cadotte Lake Campground lines the western shore of Cadotte Lake in Superior National Forest. A boat ramp and fishing dock make the campground convenient for anglers, and the sandy swimming beach is popular among families.

Superior National Forest, located in northeastern Minnesota's arrowhead region, is comprised of 3 million acres. The forest spans 150 miles along the United States-Canada border. Visitors can find recreation opportunities year-round, including exploring the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
