Minnesota’s Northwoods are a magical place, where cell coverage is spotty, crowds are nonexistent, and nature remains in its most primal form. It’s the sort of place you visit when you need a break from the chaos and pressures of modern life, and few places make for a better RV camping experience than there.Sitting halfway between the Canadian border and Duluth, Finland State Forest is a gem in a state known for fantastic campsites. One of the best campgrounds inside the forest is Finland Campground, lying adjacent to the Baptism River. Campsites at Finland Campground are rustic, to say the least. Sites have no hookups, with the only amenities being a fire ring and picnic table. The bathrooms consist of vault toilets, and drinking water is available at a central location. That’s not to say this isn’t an excellent motorhome camping location, just that you need to come prepared for self-sufficiency.While amenities are few, the beautiful natural surroundings are what really make the camping experience. Excellent hiking trails like the North Shore State Trail practically start at your rental RV’s door. There’s also the nearby North Shore All-American Drive, which is the perfect way to experience the splendor of Lake Superior’s shoreline when staying in the RV campground.

The Great Outdoors

Opportunities for outdoor fun are near limitless when you rent a camper near Finland Campground. Not only is there the Baptism River within the park, but also excellent hiking trails throughout Finland State Forest, Lake Superior is just a short drive away, and several adventure tourism sites are nearby that would make for a great day trip.One of the most famous long-distance trails in the Upper Midwest, the Superior Hiking Trail, is only a couple of miles away from Finland Campground. The 310-mile-long trail extends from Duluth all the way to the Canadian border, passing through some spectacular forestlands in the process. Unlike more popular long-distance trails (like the Appalachian or Pacific Crest Trail), you won’t need to worry about crowded campsites on this hike. Additionally, the lower elevation and rolling terrain make for an easier route, particularly for less experienced hikers.It wouldn’t be a Minnesota camping trip if you didn’t make time to get out on the water, though. Fortunately, it’s effortless when you get a rental motorhome at Finland Campground. One option is to pick up a sea kayak to paddle Lake Superior’s coast; you can find rentals in many small towns along Highway 61, like Beaver Bay or Tofte. However, the big draw for most paddlers is the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. This million-acre wilderness is America’s premier canoe trail with paddling routes covering over 1,200 miles. There are literally hundreds of entry points to the Boundary Waters, but the most popular is near the town of Ely, about an hour's drive from Finland Campground.If those itineraries sound overly ambitious and you just want a fun and easy activity for the family, there are a few zip line and rope course parks in the area. These aerial adventure parks are set up for people of all experience and fitness levels. It’s all very safe, but if you have a strong fear of heights, this might not be the activity for you.

Exploring the City

The region around Finland Campground is quite rural, so there’s bound to be some driving whenever you choose to visit nearby attractions. One of the closest towns is Two Harbors, which has several gas stations for servicing your RV rental, a dozen or more restaurants, bars, and coffee shops, and a large grocery store.Formerly a hub of railroad activity on Lake Superior, one of its more interesting historical attractions is the Duluth and Iron Range Depot Museum. Housed inside a restored early 20th-century railroad depot, the museum has exhibits covering everything from the mining and logging industry of northern Minnesota to the Native American inhabitants who have called it home for thousands of years.Obviously, camping at Finland Campground is all about enjoying nature, but should you come to miss the sights and sounds of the big city, Duluth is just over an hour's drive away. It’s not a metropolis by any means, but it is a major port on Lake Superior and in recent years, has transformed into a tech and medical center. As such, there are lots of great attractions to visit when you book an RV in Lake County.Perhaps the most interesting thing to see in the port city is the Great Lakes Aquarium, America’s only all-freshwater aquarium. Many of its aquatic habitats are designed to mimic actual locations on Lake Superior, with native species living as they would in their natural home. It’s a fantastic educational opportunity for kids (and adults) that are interested in learning more about marine life.

It doesn't get more convenient than having your own bathroom on the road. Let's talk about the 3 main types of toilets you may encounter in an RV rental.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
