The best camping near Camden State Park guide

Overview

About

If you want the strongest argument in favor of seasons that we've seen, stop what you're doing and get to Minnesota'sCamden State Park! This marsh and prairie land along the Redwood River comes alive in spring with a sprawling blanket of wild flowers, then offers a glistening spring-fed pool during the warmer months. You can also cross-country ski here, but the real magic happens in fall, when a hike up the Dakota Valley trail leads you to a breathtaking lookout onto acres of emerald, ruby, & goldenrod foliage.

Formerly an 1800s boomtown, Camden was allocated for recreation after the railroad failed to put a depot there and commerce vanished. Yes, this gorgeous spot was almost banks & offices—we're the luckiest.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Camden State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer offers warm days perfect for water activities, though it's also the busiest season. Winter presents a quiet, snow-covered landscape, ideal for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, but be prepared for cold temperatures.

Know before you go

  • Check road conditions before your visit, as Highway 67 is closed, affecting access to certain areas of the park.
  • Use updated GPS coordinates to navigate around the park, avoiding closed routes.
  • Remember that park staff will check you in at your campsite, so there's no need to stop by the office upon arrival.
  • For any inquiries, the park can be reached at 651-296-6157.
  • Stay informed of park events and updates by signing up for email notifications on the park's website.
