Pigeon Point is an isolated peninsula located at the northeast extremity of Minnesota, in Cook County, Minnesota, United States.[1] To the north of the point lies Pigeon Bay, which shares a shoreline with Canada and to the south is Lake Superior. The extreme end of the point is owned by the United States Coast Guard while the land up to the point is held by the Grand Portage Indian Reservation. The closest town to the point is Grand Portage, Minnesota which lies thirteen miles to the west. There are no roads that lead to this point and is only accessible by boat.

The site is the namesake of the mineral pigeonite.[2]
