Campground Description

We have two seasonal RV parks, the North Bay RV Park and the Duck Bay RV Park. Our RV parks are designed for the guest who would like to leave their camper set up and come and go as they please through-out the summer. Our season starts the first weekend in May and goes through the second weekend in October, perfect for spring and fall fishing and getting the most out of our Minnesota warm season.

Each site is like a private retreat and can accommodate a large trailer with full hook-up, including water, sewer and electric. Our parks are located in peaceful, wooded areas with access to the river. Guests at the resort say we have a great small community atmosphere and you’ll love the spacious sites.

Access to resort amenities including the hiking trails, pool, hot tub, boat launch and docks are included in your site fee. Bring your boat and enjoy fishing the Mississippi River. Seasonal rental of a boat lift is also an available option. Pets welcome.
