The small agricultural town of Zimmerman, Minnesota is located approximately 40 miles north of the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area, and 30 miles east of St. Cloud. Incorporated in 1910 under the name Lake Fremont, the town would later be renamed Zimmerman for the local farmer who helped convince the Great Northern Railway to pass through his town, resulting in prosperity for the area. This lovely community in central Minnesota is nestled between lakes and forests making it an exciting place to rent an RV and set off on a tour of the great wilderness areas of the north. Zimmerman itself is the perfect example of a friendly town in middle America where everyone knows each other's names, and most of the businesses are locally owned.

When you book an RV in Zimmerman, it is best to do so during one of the town’s many events. The Wild West Days event is held each year during Memorial Day weekend and is a great way to kick off the wonderful summer months in style.

Discover Zimmerman

Experience the Sites and Scenery

The town of Zimmerman has a few parks and recreation areas, like its disc golf course, ice rink, basketball courts, and other sports complexes where anyone can participate in activities. The largest park in Zimmerman is the Fremont Wildlife Management Area. This wonderful sanctuary is home to many different types of migratory birds, if even for a few days while they rest along their long-distance journeys.

Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge is directly outside of town, offering excellent access to outdoor recreation when you rent an RV in Zimmerman. Wide open oak savannas and wetlands can be found at this delightful refuge, where over 200 species of animals can be seen. The refuge is great for kayaking and canoeing, and in the wintertime, lots of people choose to snowshoe and cross-country ski. The natural hiking loops are fantastic as well, enabling visitors to see some of the featured wildlife in their natural habitats. Sand Dunes State Forest is adjacent to the refuge. Horseback riding, kayaking, canoeing, snowshoeing are some of the many ways to get around this spectacular state forest to see the scenery. The boat ramp is great for launching personal watercraft, and fishing off of the fishing pier is excellent.

St. Croix State Park and St. Croix State Forest are other fun places to explore with the Zimmerman RV rental. Both are ideal places to birdwatch or hike to the scenic fire tower which holds panoramic views of the surrounding forestlands.

Superior National Forest is one of the largest untouched wilderness areas in the region, and possibly the country, with nearly four million acres of pristine land. The forest is home to various campgrounds making it an ideal place to spend at least part of your vacation with your Zimmerman motorhome rental. Where ever you choose to go, Minnesota will surely impress you with its immense beauty and accessibility.

If you are looking for more exciting attractions, St. Cloud is quite close and has some fun things to check out. Munsinger Gardens and Clemens Gardens are two picturesque botanical gardens set up for pleasant, peaceful strolls and tranquil meditation.
