NEW! Take a 360 tour of Sugarloaf


Due to COVID-19 and the “Stay Safe Minnesota” Order, we are asking visitors to stay safe & follow social distancing guidelines outdoors, while visiting Sugarloaf Cove. CDC states to avoid groups larger than 10 and stay 6 feet apart to help slow the spread of COVID-19. It’s important for the safety of everyone that we are not gathering in groups on the beach or elsewhere during this time.  The building will remain closed for the year.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support. Stay safe friends!

Working with you to preserve and restore Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior and protect Sugarloaf Cove

Founded in 1993 to protect and restore beautiful Sugarloaf Cove, Sugarloaf: The North Shore Stewardship Association promotes the restoration and preservation of the entire North Shore. We offer fun, educational programs for all ages at the Cove, and are teaching North Shore landowners how to become better stewards of their land through our forest restoration and invasive plant control efforts. Sugarloaf is a 501-c-3 nonprofit. We appreciate the support of our donors. Make a donation today!
