Description: North Assembly Area is the smallest of the three campgrounds at Zumbro Bottoms, it is a primitive campground designed to furnish only the basic needs of the camper, a vault toilet and hand pumped water. There are not designated campsites in this campground. There are fire rings, picnic tables, picket lines and a manure bunker in the campground. Campers can set up as they wish keeping in line with these rules:

  • Portable pens are allowed but cannot be around trees.
  • Horses cannot be tied to trees.
  • Keep the size of your campsite reasonable. To allow for other campers use only the amount of space you need.
  • All camping is first come first serve. Do not block off space for friends who will be arriving later.
  • Clean up your campsite when you leave. Take all garbage with you and put all hay and manure in the bunker provided.
  • This is an intimate camping area and can only accommodate about 5 camping units.

Highlights: Zumbro Bottoms offers access to 44 miles of horseback riding trails. The trails have been marked with brown signs showing appropriate uses.

Horseback riding trails are open May 1- October 31. Trails do not close when it rains and only a few low trails flood when the river is high.

Communication is limited and the trail system is multi-use in areas.

Visitor Alert:

• The Golden Eagles Motorcycle Club's spring ride at Zumbro Bottoms is scheduled for May 16 and 17, 2015. The club will be doing trail work May 13-15 in preparation for the ride.

It is recommended that equestrians find other places to ride on that weekend. Some suggestions would be Hay Creek south of Red Wing or Forestville State Park near Preston.
