鉀猴笍 Since 1949, we've been a family-operated resort & campground on Swan Lake in Fergus Falls, MN. We offer lakeside cabins, tent camping, and full hook-up, pull-through RV sites. Here, there is time to slow down, room to breathe, and lots to explore. 馃彇锔 Soak up the sun on the sandy beach, hike through the hidden trails, and take the pontoon out for a cruise. Be sure to turn the tech off and challenge a rival to ping pong, crack a cold one, and explore the water on stand-up paddleboard. 馃崷 Bring the little ones and get messy at the arts & crafts table, catch a sunfish off the docks, and indulge in s鈥檓ores around the campfire. Don鈥檛 forget to show us what you got on the volleyball court and savor an ice cream at the camp store. Curl up in a hammock and get lost in a good book, smile at the flowers and gaze in awe at the night sky. Just be.

Detroit Lakes

5 sites 路 RVs, Tents5 acres 路 Detroit Lakes, MN
This old homestead belonged to my belated uncle Steve, and after he passed unexpectedly, I had returned to Minnesota from California and wanted to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere for those interested in sharing a peaceful and modest property.聽 The old barn is a work in progress to eventually become the base to accommodating more travelers and outdoor enthusiasts as finances permit.聽 After working in the service industry bartending for 14 years and hosting 100+ global travelers via CouchSurfing out of San Diego, I am well versed in creating an inviting space and intend to take the necessary precautions now with the added stresses of Covid-19.聽 We look forward to meeting you and sharing/swapping stories around the campfire!Learn more about this land:Our property and profile are in constant change as we are in a stage of development, but we look to share our land with those seeking to enjoy a warm, welcome environment for those fellow wanderers, outdoor enthusiasts, vagabonds, and globetrotters. I am a well-traveled backpacker myself and share 5 1/2 acres with my father here in a bustling little touristy town. We enjoy the company of those who endorse small footprint, sustainable practices and I eventually intend to create an eco-hostel from the conversion of our 100 year old聽barn. 聽All we ask is that you respect the property, our neighbors, and make an effort to add one more new friend before you depart.

Strawberry Lake Cabin

1 site 路 Lodging1 acre 路 Ogema, MN
Spring Awakening in a Lakeside Cabin... Watch the Minnesota wilderness stretch its legs after a long winter! Up North this time of year, the birds return, Strawberry Lake thaws, the trees pop out their blooms鈥攁nd you can take a front row seat for the show at this lakeside cabin tucked into the lush spring woods. Built in 2013 by local Minnesota craftsmen, our Strawberry Lake Cabin presents an ideal place for enjoying the outdoors. Spend the day on the big outdoor deck, watching the lake sparkle and relishing the forgotten joy of sun on your skin! Inside, an open common area鈥攊ncluding a fully-equipped and gleaming kitchen鈥攆aces cathedral windows overlooking the deck, the woods, and the lake. These windows span the width of the house, all the way up to the lofted sleeping area, which is perched at the tree line. If a chill lingers in the air during your getaway, the radiant in-floor heating will warm your toes. A RETREAT FOR COUPLES, FRIENDS & FAMILIES; MOREOVER, A PLACE TO REUNITE WHERE EVERYONE CAN SPREAD OUT Couples love it here at our Strawberry Lake Cabin鈥攏o matter the season. Experience the easy romance of tucking into nature together and shaking off the stresses of everyday life. From the loft bedroom, views of an unpolluted Minnesota sky full of stars will lull you into a deep sleep, and the green, flowering woods will greet you first thing in the morning. Friends鈥 getaways of two to four people鈥攃omplimented by a bottle of Minnesota鈥檚 local wine, maybe? - find a wonderful 鈥榮low stay鈥 setting here, as well. And families appreciate our Strawberry Lake Cabin鈥攁s well as the many family-friendly activities on the property and nearby. To make your family retreat easy, we provide a highchair, a baby crib, and a washer/dryer for warm, fresh clothes for everyone mid-week. No matter who you鈥檙e traveling with, we highly recommend a canoe trip out on Strawberry Lake. We will provide the canoe for you! And the water here is calm and peaceful, with less motorboat traffic than on many of the lakes in this area. Not to mention the water clarity: spring-fed Strawberry Lake is so clear; you can see almost 17 feet straight down to the bottom! And this time of year, the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge, located just three miles away, is a spectacular place for a hike or a bike ride. When you get back from outdoor adventuring, heat up the gas grill and get your energy back with a perfectly cooked lakeside burger. Or, maybe you'd like to be pampered and treated to a local homemade catered breakfast, lunch or dinner - we can help make that happen. One more spring activity we can鈥檛 forget: May marks the beginning of the fishing season! An early-spring morning is never better than when it鈥檚 spent on the calm, clear waters of Minnesota鈥檚 lakes, a Thermos of coffee steaming beside you while you wait for a bite. The crisp feeling that lingers in the air in May only adds to the experience. MAKE NEW MEMORIES WITH US There鈥檚 a timeless quality to Strawberry Lake and Northern Minnesota. As the setting for many of my own happy childhood memories (and the place where I proposed to my wife), the woods and lakes Up North hold a special place in my heart. I love being able to share the magic of this place with others鈥攁t a cabin built by people who live here in the area, too. We鈥檝e decorated the house with items that mean a lot to us, collected locally and around the world. If you鈥檇 like to capture the essence of that 鈥渇eeling of premium,鈥 we鈥檇 love to have you here to experience our version of paradise at Strawberry Lake! Kind regards, Don & Cheryl Aamodt, Owners P.S. - Are you looking for a laptop-friendly workplace away from home?... We have year-round, fiber optic high-speed internet.

The best camping near Maplewood State Park guide

Overview

About

Are you dreaming of days spent kayaking along quiet shorelines, hiking miles of forested trails, and gently swinging in a hammock with your favorite novel? Are you longing for evenings spent 'round a campfire with your favorite people, eating char-grilled dinners under the light of a full moon? Eight major lakes and dozens of ponds are nestled into the large tract of hardwood forest at Maplewood State Park, making it a recreational playground for every outdoor enthusiast. This park can bring you one step closer to your vacation aspirations. Leave the daily grind behind and head out for a recharge at Maplewood State Park.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book your campsite well in advance to secure your spot in this popular park.
  • Consider visiting during the weekdays for better availability and a quieter experience.
  • Keep an eye on cancellations, as last-minute openings can be your ticket to adventure.
  • Explore nearby camping options to ensure you have a backup plan in this sought-after destination.

When to go

The best time to visit Maplewood State Park is during the fall when the foliage transforms into a vibrant tapestry of colors. Spring and summer offer lush greenery and abundant wildlife. Winters are cold, with snow-laden landscapes ideal for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, though travel may be more challenging.

Know before you go

  • Check the latest park updates for any closures or safety advisories before your visit.
  • Remember that Highway 67 is closed; use provided GPS coordinates for alternative routes.
  • Prepare for a remote experience, as some areas of the park are only accessible by a significant detour.
  • Be mindful of wildlife and practice safe viewing from a distance.
  • Facilities may be limited, so plan accordingly and pack out all trash.
