RV There Yet Campground

19 sites · RVs80 acres · Akeley, MN
The 80-acre property is carved out of a Norway pine plantation. Sites are approximately 10,000 square ft. in size with about 50 ft. of trees between each site for semi-privacy. We have tried to maintain a balance of nature while making the sites as RV friendly as possible. Although the property is located in the country, it is located along a state highway for easy access and there are three towns and many amenities and recreational venues within 15 minutes drive. Currently no hook-ups, but there is a yard hydrant and dump station. There are also portable restrooms on site. More details at https://rvthereyetcampground.com/

Sunset Pines MN

71 sites · Lodging, RVs50 acres · Backus, MN
Mike and Loellen discovered Ruttger’s Camping Resort in the winter of 2005 while driving around the area and scanning websites for trailers. We bought a trailer on a seasonal site and have thoroughly enjoyed our summers here ever since! Our sons grew up on the lake, boating and fishing and exploring the area and we have developed a wonderful lake-family. We have watched Bill and Candy Ruttger build the resort into the beautiful property that it is today and feel privileged to have the opportunity to now share it with you. Under our new ownership and with a new name, Sunset Pines MN in January 2023, we are eager to carry on the legacy created by our friends and mentors. We welcome you to enjoy our piece of “Up North” Minnesota lake-life with your family and friends, and don’t forget to enjoy a sunset or two! Mike & Loellen

Velkommen to Norske Camp!

5 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents8 acres · Backus, MN
I bought this land near Pine River in August 2018. I wanted to have my own hunting land and something that was close to town and trails. A property that had a potential of multi-recreational use for people to enjoy while visiting. There are about 40 acres of county land surrounding three sides of the property. The main trail on my land goes thru the majority of the county land and loops back connecting to my main trail again.

The best camping near Chippewa National Forest guide

Overview

About

The Chippewa National Forest could easily be renamed to Chippewa National Lakes! The serene waters produce more wetlands and lakes than any other National Forest in the country. The Chippewa is a place of baptismal beauty and has been heralded in folk song classics for decades. Meander rivers, hike over 290 miles of trails, and cast away for a chance at muskie, walleye, northern pike, bass or sunfish. Rough-it-out in style at over 20 campgrounds that are located on lakeshores. At the end your day raise a cold one to Minnesota, she never disappoints!
