Sprawling across 40 acres of tree-lined meadows along the Cannon River, the Camp Maiden Rock West Campground is a picturesque and secluded RV park near Morristown. It lies partway between Cannon Lake and Sakatah Lake, with plenty of family-friendly facilities and recreational pursuits on offer.
RV camping at the Camp Maiden Rock West Campground includes access to non-electric and full hookup sites, with a selection of both sunny and shaded sites to select from. Campers have access to the use of a dump station or sewer hookups, as well as modern restrooms and shower facilities at the center of the camp.
Aside from an outdoor swimming pool that’s open from late May through to September, the Camp Maiden Rock West Campground includes a 21-hole disc golf course, and basketball and volleyball courts. There are two children’s play areas and a miniature golf course, with direct access to the Cannon River from the campground’s boat dock. The Camp Maiden Rock West Campground is also adjacent to the 39-mile Sakatah State Hiking & Biking Trail, which features a beautiful old railroad bridge.
Campsites at the Camp Maiden Rock West Campground are just five minutes’ drive from the Sakatah Lake State Park, which sprawls across 842 acres at a natural widening of the Cannon River. Its name is a Dakota word meaning “singing hills,” and the park is traversed by the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail, a 41-mile-long multi-use rail-trail that connects Faribault and Mankato. Aside from hiking and spotting the park’s resident deer, mink, coyotes, and squirrels, the park also has a fishing pier where you can cast a line and a public boat ramp with canoe rentals.
Just north of Sakatah Lake is the Townsend Woods Scientific and Natural Area, which was created to preserve a remnant Big Woods sugar maple forest of ecological significance. The canopy is dominated by large red oaks and sugar maples, while marsh marigolds, bloodroot, and wild ginger ignite the ponds in spring. Free birdwatching tours are regularly conducted by naturalist guides in the Townsend Woods Scientific and Natural Area, offering up-close encounters with warblers and woodland birds of all forms.
If you’re traveling with kids, head east to the River Bend Nature Center, which lies on the southeastern edge of Faribault along the banks of the Straight River. It was established in the 1970s to educate the public about Minnesota’s natural world, with an interpretive center, miles of hiking trails, and seasonal programs conducted throughout the year. Follow one of the trails that wind through the center’s wetlands, forest, and prairie where endangered dwarf trout lilies grow and explore the Windows of the Wild backyard bird habitat or visit in the winter when the area transforms with skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling trails.

The Camp Maiden Rock West Campground makes a good base for exploring the “twin cities” of Minneapolis and St. Paul, which lie around an hour’s drive to the north. They’re renowned for their scenic parklands and excellent museums, such as the Science Museum of Minnesota and the Minnesota History Center. Admire the contemporary artworks on display at the Walker Art Center and stroll through the adjacent Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, which is home to Claes Oldenburg’s famous "Spoonbridge and Cherry.” You can learn about the region’s industrial past at the Mill City Museum or delve into the country’s Civil War history while admiring the murals of the Minnesota State Capitol. If you need a retail fix, the immense Mall of America has you covered, with more than 500 retail stores and its very own theme park at Nickelodeon Universe.
