Beautiful spot

Good spot close to Walker MN. Site location does matter. Waterfront sites are amazing we stay on the back side away from the beach. Well maintained and quiet.

5 Nights 5 Stars - Minnesota Bucket List

One of the Greatest MN State Parks - put it on your list!  I'll try to keep comments brief here, but pictures/descriptions plentiful.  We chose Bear Paw campground to be walkable to the water.  Highly recommend Site 2 for nice privacy, walkable proximity to water, close to pit toilet and extra…

  • setting up at Bear Paw #2.  Tight, but was perfect in the end.  Maybe the most private drive in site in Bear Paw -- fishhouse/parking to the south.  Extra wooded "lot" to the North.  Woods to the East.  Drive entry to the West was across from bigger RV sites, but we felt tucked away!
  • Sunset over one of the lake views down a little trail on the West side of Bear Paw camp.  Fires in Canada made the air super hazy in July 2021.

Great park with lots for hiking

This was a great campground. We stayed in site 77e, this was semi wooded. The bathrooms and water spigot were near the campsite. There are a lot of great hiking and walking trails. The walking trail from the campground will bring you to the headwaters.

Nice Campground

We stayed at Camp Ground for 3 days. Short way to a beautifull Beach on the lake Bemidji. Very nice Bike trails. We made a Bike Tour around the lake and visit the beautifull downtown. The privacy between the Campsites is not so good. Thats why 4 Stars

Peaceful and Beautiful

I stayed at BP#5, just on McKay Lake. It was beautiful and peaceful. The site is small. I had trouble finding space for my 4-man tent. There was no space for table and couldn't find a greatly spaced set of trees for a hammock. I was able to pitch very close to the fire pit (almost on top of it),…

Love it!

This place is so beautiful and very well kept! There are beachside paths right to the lake from your campsite. Surrounded by trees so shaded and privacy. Im a single female traveling and feel totally safe! Will be visiting again

Quiet Peaceful Retreat

Perfect place for a quiet and enjoyable family retreat. Many sites have private access to Leech Lake (with a beach - Sites 12, 14, 17, 19) but they have plenty of public trails (short ones) to get swimming fishing and boating access. Clean showers and bathrooms. Well kept grounds. Lots of space to…

AWESOME!!

Second camping trip in our 30 ft. Silverback. The park is absolutely beautiful. Seen an Eagle about 3 miles before getting to park, then seen a Black Squirrel, never seen a black one. Went on a hike drove around the park.

Leech Lake

Right on the lake, nice little campground. It was self pay or online reservations. Half of the campground is reservable online and the other is first come first served.

Grew up going here and now take my kids here. Beautiful island with great sites and a crystal clear lake surrounding.

A quiet place to rest

The trail is a beginner level trail. A couple uphills, but nothing too bad. The campsite is basic. A log to sit on, a fire ring, and spots for 2 or 3 tents. The campsite overlooks a lake. Water is weedy, but is filterable for boiling water. Woke up to trumpeter swans each day. Loved it. There is a…

Backpack camping site 10

Stayed at backpack site 10. It’s about 250 ft from main trail and about a 40 min hike in/30 min hike out from parking lot. The main trail is wide and well maintained with ambling hills, but overall pretty flat. It is about 1/3 mile away from nearest campsite.

The site is lakeside. You can easily…

Good but semi crowded and expensive

We liked this campground but it was a bit expensive due to the entry fee for the state park we had to pay for. It would have been a daily fee if we had stayed multiple days.
