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!

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.

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.

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.

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…

Great spot for serious fishermen

This is a combo campground and city park, a joint effort of the Minnesota Dept of Natural Resources and the city of Baudette. While serving the recreational needs of townsfolk, it also provides great access to the famous Rainy River and a good place for out of town fishermen to stay. The campgound…

Cute walk up only campsite

No prior reservations taken here, but easily found a spot on a Thursday afternoon in late August. Good privacy between sites, trees everywhere. Water was available and seemed to be just fine. 

Primitive site, so fire ring, picnic table, vault toilets, trash cans provided. Also a nice day use area…

Roomy, shaded, by the water.

61 sites. Multiple loops. All Boondocking- No electric or septic or water hookups. No showers. Very quiet. Two are marked as accessory. Far from the highway- the final turn can sneak up on you. Sights are spacious and most are a far distance apart (50 feet). Lots and lots of trees between sights.…

Great hidden gem

This park is a great hidden gem. Right up against the Rainy River. We spent 3 nights out here and it was wonderful. Only reason we docked it one star was the water. It has an old manual hand pump that takes forever to prime and use.

We spent the day fishing here and the small mouth along the…

Nice park Great sunsets, boat ramp,swim beach yet primitive Camping only

This park has a lot of sites many are very small so check the size limit. Some nice big sites are 60, 52, 49, 50, 47 and 44. They are private sites with lots of trees yet not waterfront. There are no hook ups and you can not make a reservation. First come first served there are plenty of sites. We…

Listen to the Rapids

We called ahead and were set aside site #17 because we wanted to be close to the river. However when we arrived that site was taken by a large 5th wheel. We were greeted by the friendly host on arrival and he said that he had overlooked our reservation but he had plenty of room for us still- the…
