Savanna Portage State Park





Minnesota DNR logo



Minnesota DNR



The northeast half of Savanna Portage State Park is mostly peat bog and mostly inaccessible except by the Savanna Portage Trail. The central portion of the park contains many small lakes, rolling hills, and long ridges. This area contains low areas of swamps, fens, and wet meadows separated and criss-crossed by hardwood- and mixed-forested ridges. The ridges are end moraines left by a retreating lobe in the last glaciation. Most of the park’s 32 miles of hiking trails are in this area.



In 1961 the state of Minnesota set aside 14,000 acres in Aitkin County to preserve Savanna Portage, a 6-mile long, centuries old, canoe portage. Savanna Portage State park became Minnesota’s third largest state park. On April 23, 1973, Savanna Portage was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The park today is 16,259 acres and receives 57,952 annual visits.









16,259 acres statutory, 15,200 owned

SAVANNA PORTAGE STATE PARK | Minnesota Kayaking & Hiking

Minnesota has many beautiful state parks and we decided to do a day trip to Savanna Portage State Park! We went out on the water and enjoyed some kayaking on Loon Lake and Lake Shumway. Hiked the beautiful trails of Bog Boardwalk, the entire loop around Lake Shumway and the Continental Divide Trail. We even did a little kayak fishing, no luck but it was fun.

If you want to see more vlogs like this be sure to give this a thumbs up!

Camping at Savanna Portage State Park
Go Midwest Fishing


Jan 5, 2022

This was in late September. The trees were beautiful and the weather was great. Savanna Portage seems to be a hidden little gem that not too many people know about. I camped here because it was the only campground with sites available. I was pleasantly surprised by it. We went fishing and agate hunting while here.
