6 Reviews of True North Basecamp
Great campground in Cuyuna country

Super convenient to excellent restaurants and Cuyuna Brewery in downtown Crosby. Very clean bathrooms/showerhouse. Connected by trail to Cuyuna Rec Area world class mountain bike trails. Owners are very responsive.

Beautiful Group Campsite for Many to Enjoy at One Time!

True North Basecamp is a more recent development in the Cuyuba area. Since I’ve only stayed at the Group campsite I shall reflect on that. When you enter into the camp it is clearly marked. While driving to the group campsite the road is dirt and very rutted. Be mindful if you have a car. We had many people and cars and usually parking would be a nightmare but we all fit, bike racks and all! The bathrooms were clean and well stocked with toilet paper which is always a plus. Sleeping here with our 16 month old was great, she slept through the night since the tents were far away from each other and we heard the loons calling all night. I would recommend this group campsite!

Great campground right near town and World Class Biking

A great little campground right near the town (easy to bike in for coffee or beer) but it feels like you're deep in the northwoods! Some sites are better than others in terms of privacy. The bathrooms were always clean. Situated right on a quarry with fun fishing and kayaking opportunities. Connects to the mountain bike trails too! They do charge for pets.

Rustic camping close to miles of single track

Great rustic campground with trail access to Cuyuna MTB trails. Offers hot showers. No water/electric hookups. A couple sites allow for smaller RVs and pop-ups but mainly tent sites.

Always a Good Time

True North Basecamp is great for those wanting to “camp lite”. You’re enjoying the outdoors & camping in a tent but there’s a bathroom (outhouse style) & fresh cold water near by. Town is close enough you can even skip the cooking if you choose. Heck, the BBQ joint in town (excellent, btw) even delivers to the campground! The heated shower house has modern toilets if needed. The hot shower is nice after riding the trails all day. I wouldn’t call it glamping but it’s definitely not backcountry camping in the least. We go here for Mtb trail riding trips for all these features. Close enough to town to bike in, trail access from the campground, a lake/beach area in camp & clean, quiet campsites makes this a favorite spot.

First to Review
Close to town and trails

Loved the proximity of True Nortb to both Crosby restaurants and bars and the incredible trails of Cuyuna Country. Lovely cabins for glamping with incredible views of Armour Mine 2. Nice beach for summer. Bathrooms were fine but the men's password didn't work and it took away to get someone to fix it since this campground wasn't staffed. Looking forward to our next stay nevertheless!
