#All Things Local
In the land of 10,000 lakes, outdoor enthusiasts and water lovers delight in Minnesota’s natural beauty. Residents and visitors alike flock to the scenery, and the comfort of an RV only enhances the experience. Combined with the abundance of entertainment in the Twin Cities, from visiting Lake Minnetonka to the Minnesota Zoo, the Minneapolis-St. Paul area is a hot spot for campers.
Whether you’re traveling from another state or just taking a quick drive on Interstate 35, the Twin Cities have plenty of campgrounds to visit. There are almost too many places to choose from, and that’s why we’ve picked a few of our favorites to share with you.
St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park
With 579 acres and 3,800 feet of St. Croix River shoreline to explore, the St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park is the perfect place for families to hike, fish, boat, and more, and you’ll be just a half-hour drive from downtown St. Paul. Both wild and scenic, you can enjoy a modern campground from May through mid-October.
Each site has a handicap-accessible picnic table and fire ring. Almost 10 miles of trails wind through both forest and prairie terrain. For your RV, both back-in and pull-through campsites are available to reserve, with electric hookups and dump stations.
Minneapolis Southwest KOA Campground
Looking to bring along your furry friends? Minneapolis Southwest KOA has a dog park for your canine companions to run around, while also offering free Wi-Fi, a heated indoor swimming pool, and a camp store for groceries and gifts.
Plus, Minneapolis Southwest KOA is only a short drive from Mall of America and Target Field, so you can break up your day with some shopping or a game of Minnesota Twins baseball.
Lake Auburn Campground — Carver Park Reserve
If you’re seeking a more rustic-style camping experience, the Lake Auburn Campground in Carver Park Reserve will suit your fancy. With dog trails, horseback riding, archery, and all sorts of other fun activities, Carver Park Reserve has something for everyone in your family to enjoy.
Carver Park Reserve is a great spot for nature and wildlife lovers. Deer, beavers, foxes, and more call the 250-acre area of Lowry Nature Center home, which is woven with hiking trails to explore and interpretive signs for nature education.
Store Your RV at Acorn Mini Storage
Most campgrounds in the Twin Cities area are only open during the warmer months of the year. Instead of parking your RV in your driveway or backing it onto your lawn where it occupies precious space during the offseason, storing it at an Acorn Mini Storage facility keeps it ready to go all year long.
Many of our locations offer outdoor RV storage units large enough to accommodate almost any size RV, and we have facilities all throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding areas in some of the most convenient places.
