Between Duluth and Two Harbors, the town of Knife River is located on the Scenic Highway 61 in Minnesota. This historical fishing town includes small businesses, like restaurants, smoked fish store, candy store & campgrounds. At the Knife River beach, campfires, agate collecting and gathering is very popular. Right behind the beach is the Knife River Marina where a variety of boats are moored. Some of the last commercial fishermen use this marina as a base for their fishing vessels. This community has a long history that goes back to the first days of logging and commercial fishing on the North Shore. In fact, the first recorded American total-loss shipwreck on Lake Superior occurred at the mouth of the Knife River in 1838. The village was also an important stop for both of the major railroads that used to serve the area.
Today, Knife River remains a quiet village, but visitors and residents alike enjoy a public beach, restaurant, and excellent fishing. In addition, the Knife River Marina is a full-service marina operated by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
