Discover Maplewood Campground


In the heart of Maplewood State Park, Maplewood Campground is a deceptively large RV campground. Each site is lined by tall trees, shrubbery, and other vegetation that act as a screen, hiding neighbors. As a result, it can feel very private and secluded. There are 71 sites for adventurers to choose from. Most are a short walking distance to Grass Lake, which is a large lake popular for recreational kayaking, skating, and fishing.

Of the 71 sites, 32 have electric hookups during the high season. In winters, however, there are no hookups available. There are a couple of wheelchair-accessible restrooms with hot showers (also seasonal). Although there are no restroom facilities in the winters, the park opens what’s called a “warming house," which can be used by guests in emergencies.

The RV campground, along with the rest of the Maplewood State Park, is dog-friendly. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are allowed nearly everywhere except inside the park office and the restrooms.

The closest large town, Pelican Rapids, is about 10 miles west. The town has a small hospital with an emergency room, a couple of grocery stores, and about a dozen restaurants and a variety of retail stores.

The Great Outdoors

RV camp at Maplewood Campground to gain access to nearly 10,000 acres of Minnesota wilds. The hilly region is a mix of prairie grasslands and woodland. In autumn, the lush wild grass transforms from green to gold that shimmers silver when wind gushes through. The park boasts over 25 miles of hiking trails, plus an additional 20 miles of multi-use trails that are shared with horseback riders. The trails serpentine and weave through the fresh, open grasslands and into deep woods. Though the woods are primarily hardwoods - sugar maple, basswood, and oak - there are groves of birch and aspen trees. In autumn, when the temperature drops, these trees change from green to a blaze of red, orange, and yellow.

Eight lakes and several more ponds, which dot the park, are glacial, formed around 20,000 years ago. The larger lakes have swim beaches, boat launches, and fishing piers for fishermen and boaters to utilize. There are small boats, canoes, and kayaks available for rent at the park office.

When winter rolls around and blankets the rolling hills in deep, soft snow, the fun doesn’t stop. Many adventurers enjoy cross-country skiing, sledding, and snowshoeing. A significant portion of the trails is groomed for cross-country skiers. Fishermen, too, don’t let a little cold stop them. Makeshift lean-tos appear on the ice like magic, sheltering stubborn fishermen as they drill into the ice with augers in an attempt to ply their trade. Trout fishing is especially good.

Sugar Shack, which was built in 2017, introduces visitors to the art of maple syrup processing. Volunteers are available to give tours of the facility, the equipment, and in late winter or early spring (depending on the weather), demonstrate the equipment as well as give out samples.

Exploring the Area

In rural, wild Minnesota, it’s easy to think that there isn’t anything to other than fish and hike. On the contrary. With the help of a rental motorhome, travel to small, charming towns scattered around central Minnesota in search of the perfect souvenir to take home. Minnesota’s residents are known for their quirky, off-beat sense of humor and have created unusual sculptures in their town’s honor. Pelican Falls has a giant pelican guarding the waterfall. Not to be left out, Otto the Otter stands at the entrance of Fergus Falls. Chief Wenonga stands sentinel outside a civil war museum in Battle Lake, MN. Vining, MN, has a few dozen sculptures made out of recycled material by local artists.

While touring Minnesota’s roads in an RV rental, keep an eye out for small farms and apple orchards that blanket the agricultural regions. Many operate produce stands and “you-pick” programs at which visitors can select their own vegetables and fruits. Fresh, sun-ripened apples, strawberries, and pumpkins are full of flavor that cannot be reproduced at a conventional grocery store.

At the end of a long day of hiking, fishing, and sightseeing, kick up your heels outside a travel trailer. Watch stars appear in the inky black night sky one by one, twinkling away. Rent a travel trailer and go camping at Maplewood Campground. Make new memories with friends and family that’ll last a lifetime in Minnesota, when you set out on an RV adventure.
