A Minnesota State Park hidden treasure!

Camper Cabin slideshow. This slideshow requires the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

Camper cabins are rustic, one-room wooden cabins that provide basic shelter for visitors who want a "camping out" experience but prefer not to deal with a tent.


Each 12 by 16 foot cabin contains a table, benches, and wooden bunkbeds with mattresses. Most cabins have a screened porch.
