Discover Wild River Campground

Long before the European pioneers arrived, central Minnesota was populated by various Native American tribes for at least 10,000 years. Evidence of their presence has been found around Wild River State Park along with the bones of mammoths. Today, Wild River Campground is an idyllic piece of wilderness. Wild River Campground is situated in deep, green wood that’s almost jungle-like. The forest floor is blanked by lush green ferns, underneath which small woodland flowers peek out. Overhead, the branches of aspens, birches, maples, and basswood reach out to knit, forming a dense canopy that filters daylight.

Camping in an Airstream at Wild River Campground is a unique experience. Though there are 94 sites, the dense vegetation acts as a screen, increasing the sense of solitude and remoteness. It’s not uncommon to espy a white-tailed deer or wild turkey trotting through the campground, unaware of human presence. Of the 94 sites, 34 have electric hookups. These sites tend to be in high demand, and it’s recommended that reservations are made well in advance, particularly during the summer months. One site is designed to be wheelchair-accessible, and it is conveniently close to a restroom should the visitor require it. During the summer months, flush toilets and hot showers are available, as is a dump station. During the offseason, running water is limited to the park center to protect the utility pipes. Vault toilets are available during the off-season.

The closest town is Amelund, MN, which has a small grocery store and a couple of restaurants. For more variety in retail shopping, as well as emergency health care services, the closest large town is St. Croix Falls, WI, about 14 miles south.

The Great Outdoors

Wild River State Park stretches around 20 miles and follows the contours of St. Croix River. In summer and fall, the tree cover can be so dense that hiking along 35 miles of trails feels like traveling in a tunnel. The loamy soil underfoot is soft, and miles of trails fly by effortlessly, serpentining and weaving through the woods. The trails are shared with horseback riders on occasion.

Many wild creatures roam these woods, some on the ground, and others by air. Adventurers can expect to spot hawks, owls, eagles, and various songbirds. Keep a sharp eye out to skittish white-tailed deer, small game creatures like beavers, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, and otters. When the trails veer close to the river, it’s a common sight to find a tangled bramble of wood branches and logs. These are often constructed by industrious beavers in their never-ending quest to dam St. Croix River.

Fishermen often find themselves competing with eagles and otters for fish. Smallmouth bass, northern pike, and walleye are commonly caught in the river.

Renting a camper opens up a world of outdoor recreational fun year-round. When winter rolls around, the fun doesn’t stop. As soon as snow blanket the region, adventurers venture out into the chilly, white-clad woods on snowshoes and cross-country skis. Note: snowmobiles are not permitted, though there are other parks in the area that allow these vehicles. The park office also has skis and snowshoes available for rent.

Exploring the Area

Close to the Wisconsin-Minnesota state border, Wild River State Park is surrounded by thousands of acres of farmlands. Sleepy farm towns are scattered across central Minnesota, populated by hard-working, friendly people who welcome out-of-town visitors to their towns. Traveling from town to town in pursuit of the perfect gift or memorabilia to take home is made effortless by renting a motorhome.

The Franconia Sculpture Park near Shafer, MN, is an interesting draw for many travelers. The small park is dotted by contemporary sculptures made by up-and-coming and established artists residing in Minnesota. There are over 120 permanent sculptures and several more that are rotated out on a regular basis.

Many small towns host events and festivals, in part to bolster an area's economy, and in part to boost the sense of community in between distant towns. Lindstrom has held Hay Days since the mid-1960s. The annual September event includes snowmobile races conducted on muddy courses, ATV races, and swap meets. St. Croix Falls, WI, in contrast, holds a more traditional festival called Polk County Fair. Held in the last week of July, the event has carnival rides and games, and traditionally holds contests as tractor pulls, horse pulls, rodeos, and baking contests.

At the end of a long day of adventuring and sightseeing, curl up in an RV rental at Wild River Campground and listen to birds in the trees. Find your perfect RV camping adventure in Minnesota and set out on an amazing outdoor adventure with friends and family.
