Have you ever wondered what the tip of Minnesota looks like? Well, I paddled Pigeon Point and documented my experience! Have a look. It is a truly gorgeous area!

Edit: as pointed out by Jwartman59. There is no going on land at pigeon point or the susie islands (unless granted permission) since these are protected reservation lands. All visiting of this area must be by water only. Thank you!

I only watched a bit of the video. Pigeon point is reservation land. You are not allowed access to the peninsula or islands. Keep this in mind when planning to paddle this area.

Jwartman59. Yes, I know the rules of the land. There is no landing on the peninsula or islands as you have stated. All of my footage was taken from the water. Thank you for your concern with the preservation of these lands!

It was a heads up for everybody! This is a very special area, lots of very rare plants and habitat. It wouldn’t take too many onshore visitors to introduce invasive plants.

Jwartman59. Ah, yes! thank you for letting everyone who sees this know that. I can't believe i forgot to mention that. and Agreed. Honestly, its for the best that these lands are protected and do not have access (unless permission is granted) . Almost undoubtedly there would be people that would trash the lands and islands. It is far more than enough to see it and appreciate it from the water.
