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.

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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
