Great location for Sax Zim Bog birding. Back off the road with woods all around so completely private. Could use some grading on the access road and the campsite but I still give it a 5 !!! We’ll be back !!!

What a treasure! I was the first person to stay at this campsite and loved it! I am a full-time solo camper in my 5th year. I love off-grid camping. My rig is a GMC Yukon and 17' Casita camper.

Directions:

*Address for house just beyond campsite is 8214 E. Stone Lake Rd. Forbes, MN
*Coordinates are: N47.286675, W092.549313

Turn on E. Stone Lake Rd. from Highway 7 and where the blacktop turns to gravel drive 2.5 miles then bear right at the fork to remain on E. Stone Lake Rd. Just beyond the fork watch for the red 8217 address marker. The drive into the campsite is directly across the road and before you get to 8214. Park and walk in to get a feel for the site. A big rig could back in as far as they want. Smaller rigs will probably pull in and then back into the site on the side with the lovely clearing.

The area has some residential housing but the campsite is isolated and very quiet. There is a fern-filled clearing for the campsite which is surrounded by trees. My suitcase solar panels worked reasonably well. I used my generator sparingly.

I had deer, squirrel, chipmunks and birds including Pileated Woodpeckers, Barred Owls and Common Loons on the lake. I had less than expected mosquitoes. You are very close to the north section of Sax-Zim Bog and about 20 minutes from the Visitor's Center. Further down E. Stone Lake Rd. is the Blue Dasher Bog trail. The lake, left fork of the road, has a lovely picnic area with vault toilets, fire rings, picnic tables and boat ramp.

This was just the kind of hidden gem I love to find.
