DNR Question of the Week

The DNR communications team works with agency experts to develop the weekly questions and provide the answers. This feature addresses current DNR issues, interesting topics, or the most frequently asked questions from around Minnesota.


Q: What options are available for staying overnight at Minnesota state parks in the winter?

A: Some state parks and recreation areas have campsites available for winter camping, often with electricity. If you're looking for warmer accommodations, heated camper cabins are another option. Camper cabins have bunk beds and mattresses - just bring your own sleeping bags or blankets. Some state parks and recreation areas also offer all-season yurts or guest houses, and Itasca State Park has modern suites. For more information, or to make reservations, visit
