Winnie Dam Campground


Winnie Dam Campground is situated in the heart of northern Minnesota's lake country on scenic Winnibigoshish Lake in the Chippewa National Forest.

The campground, pronounced "win-uh-big-osh-ish," offers 22 sites with electric hookups. Amenities include showers, flush toilets, pit toilets, drinking water, a dump station, boat ramp, picnic shelter and playground.

Natural feaures

A forest of mixed hardwoods and towering red pines covers the area, housing an abundance of wildlife including nesting bald eagles, porcupines, black bears, chipmunks and many others. Wild blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries grow seasonally on the forest floor.

Recreation

Lake Winnie offers excellent fishing opportunities for walleye, perch and musky. It is one of Minnesota's premier fisheries. Boating on this 67,000-acre lake is also very popular. Many hiking and biking trails meander around the lake and its 141 miles of shoreline. Hunting areas can be found in the surrounding forest.

Camping with an RV

Camping with an RV

Have you ever wanted to sleep at the foot of a mountain or wake up to the sound of the ocean’s waves gently crashing on the shore? When on a road trip, do you like to stop at every weird and wonderful roadside attraction?

Camping in an RV allows you to adventure on your terms. Whether you’re looking to bond over an open fire with family and friends or you just want to get away for a while, there’s no better way to do it than from behind the wheel of an RV.

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
