The Chippewa National Forest, located in the heart of northern Minnesota, is a celebration of seasons, culture and environment. Come explore the big lakes, big pines and all the Forest has to offer.
The Chippewa National Forest was the first national forest established east of the Mississippi River in 1908. Originally known as the Minnesota National Forest, the name was changed in 1928 to honor the original inhabitants. Today, the Forest and Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe share goals and offer visitors a chance to experience Anishinabe culture and learn about the past from prehistory to the early logging-era and Civilian Conservation Corps days.
We usually stay in the Chippewa loop when we come here but have also stayed in the Wanaki loop. Chippewa has electric Wanaki doesn't. Thia is a very nice campground, we stayed at site #103. The sites are very private and very spacious. There are hiking trails, a nice beach and a visitors center. We LOVE this campground and would highly recommend it.
