Did you know that Minnesota has 35 different water trails across the state with great water access and designated camp sites that are river access only? A short list of rivers with great camping options include the Mississippi River, Crow River, St. Croix River, and Crow Wing River.
Minnesota also has a wonderful system of state parks and many have paddle camping opportunities. A few of our favorites close to home are Lake Maria State Park, Glendalough State Park, Glacial Lakes State Park, and Crow Wing State Park. Drive further and there is the BWCA or Voyageur National Park on the boarder of MN and Canada and the Sylvania Wilderness on the boarder of Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
