Camping in Minnesota in the Winter is a frigid affair, but it also promises less crowded trails and recreational activities like snowmobiling, cross-country-skiing, fishing, and even Winter “fat-tire” biking. Before doing any RV camping in the harsh midwestern Winter, brush up on Winter camping tips for RVers, as well as winter towing tips.

Some campgrounds remain open during the colder months, like Cascade River State Park and Gooseberry Falls State Park along the Lake Superior shore. The Cascade Falls half-mile hike is just short enough to stay warm but packed with five waterfalls to see. Cross-country ski along shoreline trail for stunning, peaceful views. The paved Gitchi-Gami trail in Gooseberry Falls State Park is easy to follow and accessible from the campground.

South Dakota’s Oakwood Lanes State Park is a year-round destination for outdoor recreation. The campground remains open in the winter months, though running water may not be available. With eight glacial lakes on property, ice-fishing is a major sport here. Ski-runs and snowshoe trails are a great way to stay warm while enjoying the outdoors. The park hosts events for the community as the weather warms, like a Groundhog Day Scavenger hunt and a Full Moon Owl Hike. Campers young and old will learn a lot at this historic state park.

With two Great Lakes for neighbors, there’s plenty of shoreline to explore in Wisconsin. But in the winter, don’t overlook the inland forests that become silent with snow and sublime for ski activities. If you’ve got an outdoorsy dog, try skijoring, a Norwegian sport blending cross-country skiing and dog-sledding.

Embrace Winter beach camping at Kohler-Andrae State Park. Electricity is available at the 137 RV sites here, but you’ll have to use the fresh water fill and dump site on property for modified boondocking. Stay warm by keeping your fire ring crackling with a fire, or bundle up and hit the cross-country ski trail.
