Over 3,000 drive-in campsites are available in Minnesota's state parks from late spring through mid-autumn, with some staying open year-round.
All sites have a picnic table, tent or RV pad, and fire ring with grill for cooking, and have access to water and toilet facilities. Many have seasonal access to showers, and some have optional electric and water hook-ups.
One tent or RV per campsite, with a maximum of six people. Pets are allowed but must be leashed and attended at all times. Only approved firewood is allowed.
Coming to the park? Know the "key three:"
- Arrive prepared. Buy your vehicle permit, check current visitor alerts and download maps in advance of your trip. Services and facilities may be limited, so bring everything you might need.
- Play it safe. Give full attention to your surroundings. Know your personal limits and don't take unnecessary risks.
- Follow the rules. Continue to follow all COVID-related guidance, and practice social distancing -- even outdoors. Help keep parks and trails pristine by staying on trails and disposing of trash properly.
