Camping:  We should have plenty of camping for everyone at our new site, The Lakes Music and Events Park, whether you have a big rig, a small trailer, or a tent. Our sites are bigger than the previous location and we have many beautiful trees! We also have an RV dump station, potable water, porta johns and showers on site. We're right on the Paul Bunyan Trail and just 1/2 mile north of Pine River with lots of other activities in the greater Brainerd Lakes Area. You can now camp for up to 2 weeks starting August 20 and ending September 2, so come early or stay late! 


All electrical sites are sold at this time, but you can purchase a reserved non-electrical site or a primitive site (no-electric, first come, first served). Click the button below to go to our campground reservation system. PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A 3 NIGHT MINIMUM SO YOU MUST ENTER AT LEAST AUGUST 26 - 29 TO SEE ANY AVAILABLE SITES. You may camp up to 14 days from August 20 to September 2, but you must include August 26 - 29 to see any sites.


Note that you will receive a site number for a primitive site, but it is not a reserved site. Primitve sites are all first come, first served and can accomodate tents and small campers (under 24 feet).
