Immaculately maintained, has top-shelf amenities, and the staff are amazing.

In our years of RV travels The Pines of Kabetogama is among the best RV resorts we have ever stayed at. Long story short, the resort itself provides direct access to Voyageurs National Park, is immaculately maintained, has top-shelf amenities, and the staff is amazing. You truly get what you pay…

Perfect for Kayaking on Lake Kabetogama!

This state forest campground was almost empty when I rolled in!

It had several spots to launch a kayak right from the campground and also a boat launch just a quick drive away.

The quiet and peaceful nature was just what I was looking for and I loved getting two paddles in during my stay!

Camper cabin at Big Bog State Park

Great Campground, we were 1 of only 2 campers there. We went to the Upper Red Lake Beach, right across the street from the Cabins. We also drive to the upper unit and hiked the Big Bog Boardwalk, which was actually light filtering metal - no boards. The bog land was fascinating and the carnivorous…

Woodenfrog State Forest Campground

Woodenfrog is located along the shoreline of Lake Kabetogama - part of Voyageurs National Park. The sites all seemed to be nestled nicely into their own nooks among the trees. We were the only campers in the entire campground when we started in late April. The trail along the lake was nice, fire…

Quiet Gem

We found Woodefrog State Forest Campground to be a perfect spot to enjoy Voyageurs National Park. We easily snagged a campsite next to Lake Kabetogama, kayaked, hiked, and enjoyed listening to the loons. We had sunlight for our solar and plenty of room.

Nice campsites, quiet

We loved this state park! We had 6 sites at the Birch Campground for an annual family camp outing. All of our sites were flat, private and large. Easy to fit a couple tents, a screen tent and a boat on. Hardly anyone besides us in this campground in the 5 days we spent here.

Excellent campground

Well kept campground, new showers, bathrooms. A laundry room, alas, is not finished but there is laundry in town. Recommend sites 20-32, if you want a little more space. Read the reserve dates carefully on the signs if you drive through to select a site; the site you want might actually be…

Quiet campground for Voyageurs

The campground was quiet. There was a short hiking trail near the lake. The spots were fairly level but there's variability.

Perfect campsites to reconnect with nature

Our campsite was beautiful! Boated out 17 mile out very own island with a dock provided. The camping pads made setting up the tents 10x easier and more organized. The lake water was refreshing and there were so many places to boat to for hiking, clift jumping, and especially fishing. Had an…

Great state campground

We stayed for 1 night on a site that had a short trail to the lake. The sites were private with lots of trees and wildlife. I could here our neighbors generator but as a tent camper we are used to it. They did respect the quiet hours.
I would camp here again. Kind people and cool sites.

Refreshing lake views

The beach is lovely with a magnificent lake view. There's a light house at one end along with some large rocks that are apart of the Canadian shield.

The Biggest Bog

Anxious to get camping after a Covid winter, we headed to Big Bog for a 3 day RV trip. The campground was nearly empty, which is always a bonus.

The campground has numerous sites next to the Tamarack River. Many have small docks where you can park your own or a rented boat. Our site was…

One of the nicest camps I've ever stayed in

We love to drive around, aimlessly, enjoy the scenery and then find a place to plop for the night.  Our preference is generally State Forest type of places that are self check in, less than $20 and quiet. Oh yes, and pet friendly.

We were pulling our teardrop on this trip, since it gets cold…

Quiet, Simple, Peacfull

This is a great little gem on the Canadian border. Minnesota’s smallest state park- but it’s very gorgeous and feels kinda awesome looking out at Canada!

A very cool feature at most sites, is that they have a rustic log overhanging/shelter of sorts. Doesn’t have sides, but some campers strung a…
