If your looking for someplace new to camp, check out these camping sites in Minnesota at the Judge C.R. Magney State Park.
I have got to be up front about not having been there…..but after some research, it’s definitely gonna go on my to do list (that darn list just keeps getting longer and longer)!!!
The Judge C.R. Magney State Park is not the biggest campground out there. But the quietness of the campground and the setting more then make up for the fact that there are only 27 campgrounds (hey, actually that’s not such a bad idea)!
Located in the upper corner of Minnesota, on the shore of Lake Superior, these awesome camping sites in Minnesota are open year round for day use.
The campground is open from Memorial Weekend thru Labor Day Weekend. Since this sweet little campground is so small…..I would really encourage you to make your reservations at the Minnesota State Parks and Trails.
Now, let’s talk about what makes this such an appealing camping destination…….
the campground offers the following amenities.
- tent sites
- r.v. sites
- drinking water
Pretty basic for camping sites in Minnesota.
But what really draws me to this little campground is the surrounding area.
The Judge C.R. Magney State Park is over 4000 acres of spruce, aspen and birch trees.
Sprinkled in amongst the trees, you can find an assortment of wildflowers……
Wildflowers begin to show in early spring with the marsh marigold, wood anemone, and violet.
In summer, look for the rose, thimbleberry, moccasin flower, coral root, clintonia, wild sarsaparilla, and fireweed. Asters and goldenrod add to the fiery colors of autumn.
Amongst this beautiful setting there are so many options to keep a family busy……..
- wildlife watching
and of course there is the Devil’s Kettle on the Brule River.
The most popular hike leads from the trail head upstream along the Brule River to Devil’s Kettle, where the river splits around a mass of volcanic rock.
Half of the river plunges 50 feet into a pool, while the rest pours into a huge pothole.
This is a very unusual, and even mysterious waterfall. It is believed that the water makes its way out to Lake Superior by means of underground passages, but the exact details are unknown.
So, if your in the general area, be sure to spend a night or two at these camping sites in Minnesota.
Enjoy the fishing and camping, and be sure to take a hike on up to see the Devil’s Kettle.
Be sure to take your cameras……..if you visit in the fall, the foliage is gonna be outstanding!!!
If you’ve been there already or even if you live in this area, I’d love to hear your feedback. Just leave your thoughts and comments in the box at the bottom of this page…..
