Tent campgrounds?

8 posts in this topic

Any good cheap or free tent campgrounds on or near a lake between P Rapids and Bemidji?

Nothing fancy just a flat spot with a fire pit.

Thank you

Try 'Bad Medicine Resort' on Bad Medicine lake. Don has some beautiful campgrounds on a great lake. they wont be free, but I'm sure they are very reasonable. You'ld never regret the stay.

There is also a campground at mantrap lake. I'm not sure of the facilities, hopefully someone else who's been there will tell ya.

If you're talking about the state forest campground by the access to Mantrap it is cheap, last time I was there $9/night, nice sized lots. Doesn't have electricity, running water or shower houses though, just vault toilets. If you are just going for the weekend and don't mind putting up with your own funk for a day or two nice place to stay and like I said, right by hte public access to Mantrap.

Also some state camping sites just SW of Little Mantrap, on some small out of the way lakes. Not too far off of 71 about 9 or 10 miles north of Park Rapids.

Otherwise there is the Breeze campgound on Eagle Lake. 7 miles north of Park Rapids. Its very nice but you will have to pay.

There's a state forest campground at Two Inlets. It's a couple miles west of the lumber store on 71. We've stayed there a couple times.

There is a small campground at Whippoorwhill Resort on UpperBottle lake between Park Rapids and Lake George. Go to Whippoorwhillresort.com for more info. I am not sure how late in September they are open though. The Mantrap campground is close to there if you need it.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
