    Cuyuna, Minnesota

    Welcome to Cuyuna Range Campground - opening June 30, 2023! We offer private, spacious campsites on a nightly basis to recreational camping vehicles (RCVs) such as motor homes, fifth-wheel trailers and travel trailers. The campground does not have a separate bath/shower house so tent camping is not available and all RCVs staying at the campground must be equipped with their own bathroom.

    Cuyuna Range Campground is located in the heart of Cuyuna Country - located within a 10-minute drive of the nearby cities of Crosby, Cuyuna, Deerwood, Emily and Ironton as well as the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area, mountain biking trails and ATV trails. We are your home base to come back to after exploring all the area has to offer for restaurants, shopping, activities and adventures. Relax, laugh and enjoy time with your friends and family in the beauty of nature! Cuyuna Range Campground is a place for you to rejuvenate in the privacy of your own wooded campsite.

    Cuyuna Range Campground offers 17 private, wooded and level campsites, all with full hook-ups (water, septic and electric (20/30/50 amp)) - the only campground of its kind in the Cuyuna Area! Each campsite is 40' wide x 60' deep (with at least 30' of woods in between each site) giving you plenty of privacy. No overcrowding here! Each of our sites accommodate RCVs up to 50' in length and provide use of a picnic table and fire pit with grill attachment. There is a class 5 pad on which to park and a grassy area to stretch out and relax in (bags game anyone?).

    We live in the Cuyuna area so are available if you have any questions or issues and we'd love to make recommendations for restaurants, shops or activities! There is so much to explore and experience and we look forward to hosting you!

    Overview

    Gull Lake Recreation Area offers something for everyone with boating, hiking, fishing and swimming at Minnesota's famous Gull Lake, the largest of the 10 lakes on the Gull Chain of Lakes. Visitors have the opportunity to see and hear an abundance of watchable wildlife like bald eagles, white-tailed deer, river otters, a variety of songbirds, and the legendary call of the loon.

    Recreation

    Anglers will delight in the large population of fish including stocked walleye, northern pike, bass and a variety of panfish. Boaters can access crystal clear waters throughout the chain of lakes and enjoy the peaceful sunsets overlooking the woods. Hit the self-guided interpretive trail for a short hike with wildlife watching and scenic overlooks along the lake. Hop on your bike on the City of East Gull Lake's paved multi-use trail that starts by the dam, or head out to join up with the Paul Bunyan State Trail with trailheads located in Baxter and Nisswa. Got a kayak, canoe, or intertube? Try heading down the Gull River from the lower canoe launch. Ask the Park Rangers about river safety with current water flow and check-out a life jacket before you go.__

    Facilities

    The campground is known for its well-spaced wooded sites, each with 50 or 30 amp electric hookup service, picnic tables, campfire rings, and a centrally located showerhouse. A water fill and dump station is located near the entrance to the campground. This side of the park holds two canoe launches, a paved shoreline fishing platform, fish cleaning station, self-guided information booth, playground, a flush toilet restroom, and a handful of picnic tabels and grills. Across the dam, are the boat ramp, vault toilet, and swimming beach on the lake. Volleyball nets, basketball hoop, horseshoe pits, and two more playgrounds are also perks of this side of the park.

    Natural Features

    The campground sits on the Gull River at the outlet of Gull Lake. The area was formed by a receding glacier that moved southward from Canada and carved the landscape. Gull Lake is one of the six Mississippi Headwaters Projects of the Mississippi River Watershed operated by The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

    Nearby Attractions

    Gull Lake is located minutes from 520 holes of golf, the 100-mile Paul Bunyan State Trail, amusement parks, a zoo, and numerous shopping opportunities in Brainerd, Baxter, and Nisswa.
