Tough hike in to the backpack site. But once we arrive we had a beautiful little lake all to ourselves. Didn't pass another person in the 1.5 mile hike in. Quiet, secluded, and relaxing. Site had some log benches and a table if I remember correctly as well as a bear box.

  • sunset on the private like my campsite was on
  • morning views from the private lake the site was on
  • not a very big lake but it was so serene to have this by the site

Beautiful land with so much to offer!

I was so impressed by the trails and the lake-it felt very well maintained and also quite private. I can’t wait to stay again!

Beautiful land!

The trails were so beautiful and it felt like there were options to explore everywhere. Firewood was about $7/bundle and restrooms were clean. I want to go back and try to fish next time! There’s individual docks for fishing!

  • beautiful private areas to sit by the water
  • the lake was down but crystal clear
  • my tent site was very level

We have enjoyed staying here. Minnesota does a nice job with their state parks. The campsites are varied in types, sizes and layouts. Ours works great for our 26’ travel trailer and truck, and includes electrical. Main restroom has showers. Nice canoeing lake adjacent to the campground. The…

Good times.

This is a popular spot and it was pretty noisy. The camp host were great. I didn’t have reservations so I had to move around a lot because I wanted to stay for a few days. There’s lots of things to do And the water is just beautiful. Great places to hike around.

Beautiful State Park

This was a wonderful stay. Very family friendly with a lot to do! There are modern facilities in the drive in campground, nothing fancy but they got the job done. We stayed mid-week and the park was busy but not overly full. You can rent kayaks, canoes, etc. at the park office of a decent price.…

Secluded and beautiful

Well kept campground with 73 camping sites. 24 have no electricity. Has public boat launch for canoes and kayaks. Has a beach for swimming. Most sites can handle a medium sized 5th wheel, some are very shallow. We have a 27ft pop up and there was just enough room for it and my truck. Planning…

Great Area! Lake is clear and looks like very good fishing. Does not have a boat launch. There are three campsites that are decently big and you could fit two-three cars. Has a nice 2 1/2 mile hike around the lake

Feels Like Wilderness

Stayed at a camper cabin- had the park to ourselves! Absolutely gorgeous. The drive off the main highway is a few miles, so you really end up out in the wilderness! We also appreciated that this park doesn’t allow hunting so you know you are safe during that season. 

The campground is along a…

Great, clean sites. Gorgeous lake!!

I spent 3 nights in a tent and my friends had a large camper in the same site. They were clean and the chipmunks were our pets for the weekend. The docks are convenient for your boats or pontoons. The fishing is phenomenal and beautiful! Definitely recommend for hiking, site seeing, swimming at the…
