Judge Magney State Park reflects Manitou's essence, but is more accommodating to tent and trailer campers. While many boast of the Brule's fishing, the park's real claim to fame is the Devil's Kettle [pictured above]. Rumored to have no bottom, this bottomless cauldron perpetually drinks down half the river's water flow. The hike up treats you to excellent vantage points of the Lower and Upper Falls and the Devil's Kettle.

The park name honors Judge Magney, an advocate of state parks, who helped establish 11 state parks and waysides on the North Shore. Take a moment and tip your hat to this visionary.
