What's the Devil's Kettle?

One of Minnesota’s greatest mysteries is that of the Devil’s Kettle. Located about 20 minutes northwest of Grand Marais, Minnesota up highway 61 is Judge C.R Magney State Park. Here, the gorgeous Brule River flows through winding terrain towards Lake Superior. As the magnificent river makes its way towards North America’s largest freshwater body of water, it makes an 800 foot descent in about 8 miles. This creates many outstanding waterfalls that cut through the rocky topography of the northland.

A few miles up the Brule, there is one waterfall that is a bit different from the others. The stream splits in two as it cascades 50 feet over a rocky ledge. On the east side, it flows smoothly over the rocks. The west side, however, is where the mystery lies. On this side, the rushing water funnels into a cavern that seems to lead to nowhere. It never fills up, and you cannot see an ending. Because of this interesting phenomenon, it was appropriately named the “Devil’s Kettle.”

Handcrafted, waxed canvas Daypack

Made from waxed canvas, cotton webbing, premium leather and solid brass hardware. All handcrafted by Frost River in Duluth, Minnesota USA.

Made for Attachments

This daypack has four heavy-duty leather lash squares, molle webbing panel, and two solid brass Frost River G-hooks on each side. This allows you to easily add external capacity to the Devil's Kettle Daypack.


It's all about the external features on this pack. Two zippered pockets work to stash easy-access items. This pack may be smaller size than most, but we've added our canvas padded backstraps for hauling all of the extra weight that you can attach to the exterior.

    I needed an every day pack for my chaplain's books and supplies, and this went above and beyond my expectations. Besides the great looks, it has plenty of storage pockets small items, and the quality, wow. I take this when with me to the homeless camps, and it holds up beautifully in the rain and muck, loaded to the brim with heavy items.

    Outstanding pack. Gifted to my college aged medical student son, who then went to the store and bought accessories for it, and had his girlfriend with who bought a pack too. Great store, is American made in upper part of Duluth store, and nice selection of items. Their gear lasts, the way you want it too, and we’ll be back.
