    Thanks

  2. Pat Ann Grove says:

    Thinking of staying at bear head looking for a campsite next to the water so we can have boat next to us. Is there a map of the campgrounds. Thank you

  3. Mark W Easterday says:

    Look for cost for a month of camping

    • Hi Mark,
      Minnesota State Parks (like Bear Head Lake State Park) has a 14 consecutive day limit. Bear Head charges $25 per night for ‘drive in’ non-electric campsites and $35 per night for electric hookup sites. Canoe, backpack, cabins and guest house rates differ. You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservation.
