Minnesota Camping

What is your favorite Minnesota campground?

Last weekend we camped at Frontenac State Park. The crazy thing is that we were forced into it. 😉 We were going to the Willie Nelson concert at Treasure Island Casino and couldn’t find one hotel with availability within 30 miles! Of course, it ended up being perfect. Even just one night of camping revives the soul.

We loved all the trails that looked over Lake Pepin and the beautiful prairies.

We were also super impressed with the cleanliness of the campground and restrooms/showers. They have the cutest store where you check-in and service couldn’t have been better. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The park has so many great activities too for adults and children. You can see the list by clicking HERE.

Mostly we loved this campground because of the location. It is less than 90 minutes from the Twin Cities. There is a ton of exploring to do in the area and you are so close to Red Wing if you need/want to run into town.

We definitely will be going back to Frontenac State Park. We only scratched the surface there and it is one of our goals to camp more. If you have a favorite Minnesota campground, please let me know in comments!

One last fun note. The next day we went to the Blue Ox Music Festival in Eau Claire, WI. It was incredible!! If you love blue grass, you have to check it out next year. As we walked in by all the campers & tents, it looked so crazy fun! The line-up of bands was fantastic and the overall relaxed vibe was so nice. It was very family friendly with kids playing and everyone just chilled out in the grass listening. I was SUPER excited that they had wine too from the Autumn Harvest Winery & Orchard instead of only offering beer. (Which of course, Terry loved! His favorite was the Lager of the Lakes from Bell’s Brewery)
