Overview

Winnie Campground is remotely located on the west side of Lake Winnibigoshish in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest. Visitors come to the area to enjoy boating, trophy muskie fishing and beautiful scenery.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the western shore of the lake in a scenic forest of mature red and white pine. Some sites have lake views.

Recreation:

Lake Winnie offers excellent fishing opportunities for walleye, perch and muskie. It is one of Minnesota's premier fisheries. Boating on this 67,000-acre lake is also very popular. A boat ramp and harbor are located next to the campground.

Many hiking and biking trails meander around the lake and its 141 miles of shoreline. A picnic area is adjacent to the campground. Hunting areas can be found in the surrounding forest.

Facilities:

The campground offers several sites, some of which are very large and suitable for groups. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Vault toilets, hand-pumped drinking water and recycling services are provided. Firewood is available.

Nearby Attractions:

The town of Cass Lake, Minnesota is 25 miles west of the campground, offering restaurants, a bank, grocery and hardware stores, a movie theater and museum.
