250-Site Wabasha’s Pioneer Campsite Thrives as Family-Owned Business for 38 Years

Pioneer Campsite in Wabasha, Minnesota, has been a family-owned business for nearly four decades. It has created a welcoming community for campers and outdoor enthusiasts. 

Paul Logan, the owner of Pioneer Campsite, reflected on the journey, noting that his family became involved and purchased the campsite 38 years ago.

He mentioned that they are working on the third generation at Pioneer Campsite, emphasizing the resort’s commitment to family values, which is evident in every aspect of its operations.

Situated on 40 acres of picturesque land near the Mississippi River, Pioneer Campsite has become more than just a business for the Logan family.

Paul and his wife, Brenda, have raised their children and grandchildren on this very property, instilling a deep appreciation for nature and community in the younger generations. 

The resort’s strategic location on the high ground has proven to be a significant advantage, especially in the Mississippi River. 

Paul Logan explained that despite the high levels of the Mississippi River, people can still boat and fish if they wish. 

“We are right next to Lock and Dam and levy no. 4 so they fish right off the levy so it has just worked out really well over the years, full season, we never flood,” Logan said, as reported by KIMT3.

With 240 campsites, Pioneer Campsite caters to both overnight campers and seasonal families. The latter group typically stays from April 15 to October 15, setting up their RVs, campers, and trailers for an extended outdoor living experience. 

The campsite offers various activities to keep visitors of all ages engaged and entertained. Guests can enjoy popular activities such as fishing, swimming, and boating. 

Additionally, the proximity to the Mississippi River adds an extra dimension to the camping experience, allowing for additional activities such as jet skiing and wildlife watching.

Another aspect of the campground is special events. These events, such as the annual July 6 golf cart parade, further reinforce the sense of community at Pioneer Campsite. 

Pioneer Campsite’s approach underscores the importance of family ownership, maintenance, and diverse amenities for private campground owners. The array of amenities and activities offered, from fishing and boating to special events, demonstrates the significance of catering to diverse interests to enhance the overall camping experience.
