Savanna Portage State Park

Savanna Portage State Park is the relaxing get-away that you’re looking for in any season. Rent a boat, canoe or kayak to take to one of the four fishing lakes; spend a warm day under the sun at the swimming beach, playground or on the fishing pier; or get out and explore the 32 miles of biking, hiking and cross-country ski trails.

While you’re here, follow the footsteps of voyageurs, explorers and American Indians who walked the Savanna Portage over 200 years ago – a gruelling passageway that connected the East and West Savanna Rivers. For a birds-eye view, climb to the top of the Continental Divide trail. Here, water to the west flows into the Mississippi River, while water to the east runs into Lake Superior.

To see all this park has to offer will take a weekend, at least, and for that the park offers electric campsites, backpack sites, a group camp that accommodates up to 30 people, a modern camper cabin, accessible showers and flush toilets, and a seasonal dump station. Hike under the pines and sleep under the stars at Savanna Portage State Park this season.
