Parson's Landing is a secluded beach campground located seven miles west of the village of Two Harbors. Its eight primitive sites can accommodate up to eight people each and are accessible by a strenuous 6.7 mile hike on the Silver Peak Trail, or a 7.7 mile walk on the West End Road. Kayaking is another option. It is 4.25 miles by water from Two Harbors to Parsons Landing. Kayaks are available to rent from the Two Harbors Dive Shop at 310.510.4272.
