Tettegouche State Park is sixteen miles from the cabin and one of the more popular State Parks along the North Shore. It is best known for the large Baptism River waterfalls along the Cascade Trail and it's lakeside cliff views of Lake Superior. 

Temperance River State Park is thirteen miles up the North Shore from the cabin and known for the riverside trails that follow along the edges of the Temperance River flowing to the gorge into rushing waterfalls. 

Oberg Mountain loop is a relatively short hike but that leads to long sweeping views of Lake Superior and the North Shore.
