Cottingham Park Campground Professional Review and Guide
"This 56-acre city park is connected to Bullard’s Bluff Park via 2.5 miles of hiking, horse riding, and ATV trails. It’s popular with locals, who frequent it in the summer for swimming and picnics, as well as for the canoe and kayak access to the Crow Wing River Canoe Route. Campsites are heavily wooded and private. Pets are allowed.
Minnesota may be best known for its northeast corner along Lake Superior, and certainly that’s a strikingly beautiful place, but the northwest part of the state, while very different in terrain and feel, has great beauty as well. Even better, it has excellent outdoor recreational opportunities."
