This is the view of the current 75-foot collapsible tower when fully extended as viewed from Seagull Lake between Seagull Creek and the public swimming beach and picnic area. The proposed tower would be permanent and therefore built beefier than the current tower.
The beach is a well-loved recreation site because of the shallow bay. You can walk out very far before the water gets deep so it’s great for little kids. People from all over the Gunflint Trail and from Grand Marais frequently visit the beach as it’s the only sandy beach you can get to with a vehicle.
