Hiawatha forest welcomes campers

18 campgrounds offer range of amenities

GLADSTONE – The Hiawatha National Forest is welcoming visitors to one of its 18 developed campgrounds. The campgrounds are located throughout the forest, providing a range of amenities such as hiking trails, fishing piers, and access to inland and great lakes waterfront.

“We hope visitors will enjoy visiting Hiawatha National Forest’s historic sites, recreation facilities and campgrounds,” said Forest Supervisor Jo Reyer.

Reyer is also reminding the public of several safety precautions, reminding visitors that:

1. Fireworks are not allowed on National Forest lands; and

2. All legal campfires should be attended at all times and should be extinguished when you leave.

Questions about camping, fireworks, fire danger or recreation opportunities, may be directed to local Hiawatha National Forest district offices.

Reservations for developed campgrounds (as well as cabins and some dispersed campsites) are available through National Recreation Reservation System (www.recreation.gov) or (877) 444-6777.
