George Crosby Manitou State Park

George H. Crosby Manitou State Park only has backping campsites so the park will be pretty quite and relaxing.  The site is wooded but we should be able to set up a few tents (the reservation website has a picture of 2 tents up).  Please note the dates, this trip is for Wednesday - Friday trip right before the Gooseberry Falls trip.  We will be in site #21.  It is only 1/4 mile hike in from the parking lot and seeing how I don't have backpack camping equipment that is far enough.  The reservation website says the site is 100 feet from a restroom (vault toilet) and it is a waterfront site so we will be on Benson Lake.  We will have a food locker.  I will not be charging for this trip.

Check out the parks website for more about the park.

From the park's website:

Come to this north-country wilderness park where waterfalls cascade through a volcanic canyon surrounded by majestic forest. The trails in the park are carved through a forest of fir, cedar, spruce, and northern hardwoods. Although the trails are steep and challenging for hikers and backpackers, they offer spectacular views.

Secluded campsites are for backpackers only. Trout (brown, rainbow, and brook) and splake (a hybrid of brook and lake trout) reside in Benson Lake. Watch for moose, deer, bear, and wolves.
