Eco Tourism

Green is the new gold when it comes to traveling. Minnesota’s campgrounds offer an amazing experience for families that are interested in a truly green travel experience. Enjoy fishing on the lakes, bicycling, hiking, canoeing, swimming, and stargazing away from the city lights.

There is plenty of wildlife to enjoy watching. You can also explore the local caves, waterfalls, scenery, and vegetation. Be sure to bring a camera to record the sights you take in and a few books on nature so that you and your family can identify nature's bounty as you encounter it.

Adventure Tourism

Those who love adventure will find plenty to experience in Minnesota’s campgrounds. No matter what the weather is like or the season, there is a camping opportunity to enjoy in Minnesota. Those interested in the best winter has to offer will enjoy the opportunity to go on a dog sled camping adventure. Snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and snowboarding are other favorite wintertime camping activities for the adventurous members of the family.

Summer adventures include whitewater rafting, mountain biking, ATV tours, and hot air balloon rides. This, of course is in addition to the many other great things you can do and enjoy while camping.

Water Lovers

With so many lakes, it is no small wonder that Minnesota takes great pride in offering a wide range of water related activities to campers and other visitors to this amazing state. Jet skis are a favorite among younger campers and many campgrounds offer jet ski rentals if you don't have your own. There are many tours available for the family that provide the equipment and experienced guides if you are interested in trying something new.

Other activities to consider for your time in the water are canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, tubing, boating, water skiing, fishing, swimming, wakeboarding, windsurfing, and scuba diving.
