Part of Kitchi-Gami park; Brighton Beach is is perfect for skipping stones, agate-hunting, ship-watching, wading, picnicking and lollygagging. Features summer-use restrooms, picnic tables and grills. Brighton Beach starts just past the  little blue tourist info center and runs 0.8 miles to Scenic 61/Congdon Blvd. Note North Shore beaches are pebble or cobblestone; for sand, head to Park Point In Duluth.


Brighton Beach Road is closed to traffic as improvements to the park and shoreline are underway; to access, park at the visitor center parking near the the mouth of the Lester River or a small parking area on Scenic 61.
