Through the Division of Parks and Trails, DNR manages campgrounds in 22 state forests. These campgrounds are first-come, first-served and furnish basic amenities such as campsites with picnic tables and fire rings, pit toilets and a water source.
OHVs accessing campgrounds are subjected to the same rules and regulations as highway licensed vehicles. This includes being registered in accordance with state law, following all posted signs and rules, using only designated roadways and campground spurs/parking areas and no recreational or utilitarian riding within the campground.
Several state forest campgrounds are open to OHV access, including:
- Beltrami Island State Forest: Bemis Hill, Blueberry Hill and Faunce
- Finland State Forest: Finland
- George Washington State Forest: Larson Lake and Lost Lake
- Nemadji State Forest: Gafvert
- Richard J Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest: Snake Creek and Trout Valley
Through a public process, the DNR is considering allowing OHV access to additional campgrounds. Prior to allowing OHV access, the public will have an opportunity to comment during a 30-day public comment period and public meeting.
