Looking for some suggestions for campgrounds and or state parks that offer a quality camping experience as well as some opportunity to fish without a boat. I have a small 22 ft camper I'd like to experience Minnesota a bit more with and can't take the boat along for the ride. We're not much into hiking but would go take in the sites, especially if we could bring our dog with. Any suggestions?

The state campground in Willow River has good shore fishing. C.C. Andrews is interesting too.

Bear Head State Park has been my choice. Close to Tower and Ely. Can fish from shore on two trout lakes located within the park. Hiking trails, bike trails, nice sites, showers, fish cleaning house. They rent boats and canoes there and electric motors. Wallleye, pike, bass and panfish in the lake. good luck.

Big Bog across the street from Red Lake, I don't know how good the shoreline fishing is but there is a tributary and public access close,new shower house,gas and convenience store close. @ 1 mile drive to the Big Bog "boardwalk" into the Bog. Westwind resort for beverages and a dinner there also.Big Stone in the western prairies is pretty cool area,hunted down there,good people and good DNR office in Ortonville for local info.

Temperance river state park on the North Shore, we always get a few lakers casting the rocks on superior. Could you bring a canoe? If so, there is quite a few inland lakes around there too that would be good fishing and a canoe would be ideal for access.

How about places where there are just a few camp sites without any services, anyone know how to find those? It's always touch and go when you show up and someone's already set up there, but man the big campgrounds are ridiculous. Drive out into nature in order to jam 8000 people into a 5 acre site with pavement roads...........

Some National Forest and State Forest campgrounds are a bit more primitive with no hookups and just a vault toilet. Some national forest camps allow reservations, but that state forests and some of the real primitive national forests are first come-first serve which can be problem.

Nemaji State Forest campground,,,if you're into atv/dirt bike,,,during the week it's pretty quiet, main campground area @12 spots only,hand well,vaulted.During the week a tent campers dream,@3 sites 20' from the waters edge. Panfish for kids,40-50 acre lake. It was expanded awhile back but the new part is not very close,still only holds 20-30 sites. Small river for canoe ride. Gas,groceries and beverages in Ducette 30 minutes away,nice little pub in Nickerson.

Many nice camping areas along the north shore. The state parks in that area are great! For something a little quieter, there are many campgrounds near Finland, MN with shore fish access, and still close enough for visits to spots like Gooseberry Falls, Splitrock Lighthouse, Lake Superior. Also know of a few nice campgrounds in the Ely area that have shore fishing or fishing from a dock/pier.
