Perfect for families

Great family campground. Lots of shade cover. Oak ridge is perfect for larger rigs (<35 feet - anything bigger there are only 2 spots that will fit) (no electric or water). Clean vault toilets. Lots for kids to do. Canoeing, fishing, paddle boards. Great hiking trails. Loop for kids to bike on easily. Easy to get to.

For those using the dump station it’s on a hill and tougher for bigger rigs to use. No flushing station. But water throughout park. Firewood at the station. Small number of electric sites in the first campground but sites are closed together and less privacy/shade. Bathhouse is in first campground.

Remote hideaway (BWCA entry)

Perfect little campground (and outfitters) right in the lake. Great for those who still want a few amenities.

It’s a dry campground. Water at the outfitters. Vault toilets (clean and nice!) throughout. Water spigots in the campground. Dump station next to the outfitters. Outfitters have basic necessities and gear. Canoe rentals too. Campground is right in sawbill lake. Lord of portages nearby. Amazing place!

Sites are spaced out. Shaded. Most can accommodate trailers. Some are better for tents only. Our 34’ and 37’ fit perfect with plenty of room. Fire pits and tables in each one.

Highly recommend. It’s a wonderful place to camp!

BWCA entry point.

Close to Rushmore!

This was in a beautiful area off the beaten path. Close to Rushmore. Big open area. Nice sites.

Big and open

We stayed here on our way through in 2019. One night. 37’ 5th wheel. Fit with room to spare. Big tree cover. Shaded. Kids loved the pool. Bathrooms are single person and locked/gated. Sites are closer together but roomy.

Close drive to Minneopa!

We stayed here while visiting Minneopa state park. The campground was nice. It was mid April so no water at the sites but had electric in ours. We were able to get potable water at the entrance. And firewood. Had great trails to walk and bike on. Sites are spaced out. Our 34’ trailer fit easily. Vault toilets on site. Bathrooms were closed (covid). The loops near the entrance had more shade. Spaces are large and accommodating!

Hidden Gem!

Stayed here in early sept 2018. Was a bit chilly at night but beautiful during the day. It’s close to neighboring Golden Eagle lodge. We visited the lodge and the owners were very friendly. The campsites in the park are shaded and decent sized. Short walks to the lake. Off the Gunflint trail and close to Honeymoon bluff, BWCA and so many more amazing places!

Lovely hidden campground on the hill

We stayed here while Visiting glacier NP. The sites are very close together but still very nice. It’s tough turns for bigger rigs though. We had a pull through spot.

The office and facilities are clean and well kept. We stayed in 2019.

Bathrooms are locked and private. Nice showers. WiFi worked well. The fishing and pond area was clean and well kept. Super close to the park entrance.

Great retreat on the lake!

We stayed in 2 different cabins. Fox and Beaver. Very nice. Clean. Private. It was quiet. Peaceful. Beautiful views of the lake. The staff was very friendly. The “lodge dog” was friendly too 😊 they have canoe rentals. All the gear. Was a great stay!

Note. There is very limited cell reception here (yay!)

There is WiFi but only near or in the lodge.

The cabins have kitchens and cooking stuff. Some have outdoor grills but not the easiest to use.

The entrances in most of them are not ADA friendly. We didn’t need it. Just note they are on uneven ground.

We visited during COVID. So we brought a lot of our own gear. So not sure what it’s like normally.

We rented a canoe and ventured out onto hungry Jack lake. Sooooo beautiful.
