One of the many wonderful pleasures of spending time in Minnesota is that you always discover something different. You might camp under a stand of old pines, along a lake or river, on stony river bluffs, or in the midst of miles of open prairie. Depending on where you are, you might face more than one of those choices at the same campground, particularly at some of the state parks that straddle different geologies. Other possibilities include being nearly alone at some of the more remote rustic campsites in the national forests, or exploring the virtually untouched wilderness known as the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
