Located within Beltrami Island State Forest, this is a remote, secluded, primitive campground geared toward horseback riders, with 4 horse campsites that include tie rails, manure disposal areas, and mounting rails. Within the forest itself is access to canoeing, hiking, and 138 miles of snowmobile trails. (Note: This forest is open for hunting during the fall, so take precautions if camping during hunting season.) The secluded campsites are open in the winter. Pets are allowed.
This is a boater’s and angler’s dream region, especially the area right across the top of the state with Lake of the Woods, the Rainy River, and Rainy Lake, often referred to as the Walleye Capital of the World (to the chagrin of some of the other walleye lakes in Minnesota). Lake of the Woods, most of which is in Canada, has 65,000 miles of shoreline and 14,000 islands. It also has walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and perch in abundance, and the same can be said for Rainy Lake.
