Prepare for your camping vacation 

Minnesota Camping

We have several favorite Minnesota campgrounds that we return to time after time however it’s always fun to explore Minnesota campgrounds overlooking a lake we want to fish, one near a Minnesota small town we want to experience or one that has special geographic features.

Star gazing at night is one of our favorite ways to relax after a day of hiking, swimming, and feasting. When the heavens put on a light show like this we feel truly blessed.

We camp in all four seasons of the year. Our state parks are open for winter camping and are popular with cross-country skiers and snowshoers.
