Mantrap Lake Campground

4 posts in this topic

We are going to be coming up to Mantrap in Aug and was wondering about the State Campgrounds on the lake. Do they have launch, beach and can you leave your boat in the water overnight? Any information would be helpful. Thanks. cool.gif

There is a launch just before you get into the campgrounds. I wouldn't recomend leaving your boat in the water though, you aren't able to keep an eye on it at all from the camping areas. They do have a swimming area, just off from the landing. Keep an eye on the kids though as there is a drop off not far from the swimming area. Have a great stay have had many great memories up there. grin.gif

You should also be aware that there are no hookups in the campground. No water, electric or sewer. I believe this is true - - - someone correct me if I am wrong. The camp sites are very nice.

Sod Farmer is correct, there aren't any hookups in the sites. There is water spicket were you can get water, and they have vault toilets. Don't remember a dump station either. I prefer the sites along the back row, seem to be a little more spacious and shaded.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
