Discover Akeley City Park Campground


Just where central Minnesota blends into the northern reaches of the state, the Akeley City Park Campground welcomes RVers and explorers alike. If you’re traveling in the warmer months of the year, you can get yourself an RV site. If you’re lucky, you just might get a site that overlooks the lake. You can then explore the many miles of trails that get their start in the Akeley City Park, such as the 49-mile Heartland State Trail.

Each RV site at Akeley City Park Campground provides electrical hookups with 30/50 amp service. Some sites also have water hookups. There is also a dump station available on-site, and when you finish exploring at the end of the day, you can make use of the showers and restroom facilities.

If you feel like spending a day in Akeley City Park while RV camping here, there is plenty of opportunity for recreational activities. You can relax on the sandy shores of the lakefront beach and enjoy the view. Or instead, you can cast your line out into the water and try and catch some famed Minnesotan trout, which you can then clean at the on-site cleaning station. You can end your perfect day with a campfire, some fire-roasted trout, and some fresh ice cream as the sun sinks below the tree line.

The Great Outdoors

Just a short drive from the RV campground is the idyllic Two Inlets State Forest in Park Rapids, Minnesota. With gently rolling hills and several wetland habitats to explore, you can traverse this ancient glacial landscape. You can enjoy a stroll around the edge of Duck Lake or along the currents of Indian Creek. The site is not a frequented one, so wildlife is abundant. If you’re quiet and patient, chances are you will be able to spot some local wildlife, such as pheasant and deer.

Those who are looking for a slightly more energetic excursion can head to the Foot Hills State Forest in Backus. One of the more popular natural destinations in Minnesota, there is no shortage of recreational activities to be enjoyed in Foot Hills. If you’re traveling in the summer, you can explore the forest through the trail system, enjoy some ATV and OHV riding, and even explore the various waterways with a canoe or kayak. If you plan to do your exploring in the winter, the hiking trails get transformed into trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. With so much to enjoy, there is never a dull moment at Foot Hills.

A great day trip within reasonable reach of the campsites at Akeley City Park Campground can be experienced at Chippewa National Forest near Laporte. The forest is comprised of 1.6 million acres of woodland and lakes. In fact, roughly 400,000 acres of the park are covered in water, with two of the five largest lakes found within the forest boundaries. You can relax on the beaches of the various lakeshores, rent a canoe or kayak to explore the seemingly endless waterways of the park, or enjoy the network of 300 miles of trails. Whether you plan to spend the day or enjoy some backcountry hiking and backcountry camping, there is no shortage of unique destinations to explore.

Explore the City

Akeley is believed to be the birthplace of the American folklore character Paul Bunyan, so it only makes sense that it is home to the Paul Bunyan Historical Museum. You can learn about the early history of Akeley, the lore of Paul Bunyan, and the history of the sawmill. You can also learn more about the area and gain insider information on where to go and what to do.

Those looking to enjoy a fun-filled day can head to the family amusement park in Nevis. You and your traveling companions can play a round of miniature golf, see a performance, and even take historic-themed photos. You can end the day with a freshly made milkshake or a scoop of ice cream.

If you’re searching for more history when you book an RV in Hubbard County, you can head to the nearby Hubbard County Historical Museum. Housed in the red brick building of the Hubbard’s original county courthouse, several exhibits showcase the history of the area. Everything from the pioneers to the early days of the cities and towns to modern life can be learned about at Hubbard County.

As with every RV rental excursion, you may need to restock and refuel your rig. There are a couple of options for grocery stores and gas stations in Akeley; however, there are even more options available along Highway 34.

You are going to burn a lot of energy as you explore the wonders of this natural playground. So at the end of the day, treat yourself to a local delicacy, the Jucy Lucy. Chances are you can find this Minnesota classic at any local diner or restaurant. The Jucy Lucy incorporates cheese within the patty rather than on top, creating a very gooey and cheesy sandwich; make sure you grab some extra napkins.
