Camping in Northern Minnesota Delayed Due to Long Winter

Share this article

Minnesota’s long winter has helped prolong the ski season in northern Minnesota. However, it has also delayed those planning to camp this spring on the North Shore.

According to a report, the U.S. Forest Service announced that campgrounds in the Superior National Forest are opening later than planned due to the persistent snow on Minnesota’s North Shore.

Campgrounds are now scheduled to open around  May 12, and while it is starting to warm up, there is still a lot of snow, and conditions vary across the forest.

Many gravel roads in the Superior National Forest are in rough condition due to the long winter, the Forest Service said. And as the snow melts, this could lead to flooding and very muddy roads, which has led to some road closures and ATV trail closures this spring.

The Forest Service notes water services are scheduled to be operational once temperatures allow and may not be available when paid and permitted campgrounds open.

Anyone who has reservations before the new projected opening date will be reimbursed.
