I am writing to find out how much interest there is in a week long camping trip. I am looking at starting on Saturday, June 21 and going to Judge C.R. Magney State Park
and camp their 3 nights. While we are there, one day we can drive up to Grand Portage State Park
(this park doesn?t have camping). Tuesday (6/24) we would go to Bear Head Lake State Park
and camp their 3 nights. While there we can go to Soudan Underground Mine State Park
and take the tour (also no camping). And lastly, on Friday (6/26) we would go to Moose Lake State Park
and camp there until Sunday. Depending on the route we take to Moose Lake, detouring to Hill Annex Mine State Park
(no camping) and going on one of the tours there might be manageable. You would have the option of camping as many days as you like so if you aren?t up for camping eight days you could go home early, or join us late. This would be a great way for people in the State Parks Hiking and/or Passport clubs to complete 6 in one week.
For those who are not aware, the DNR has two state park clubs. One is a hiking club and the other is the passport club. Here is the official webpage explaining the clubs http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/clubs.html
. In short, when you hike ?Hiking Club? trails at state parks and collect passwords you receive rewards for how many accumulated miles you?ve hiked. For the passport club you go to a park and get your ?passport? stamped you and received rewards for various numbers of parks you?ve visited.
If this sounds interesting let me know. If there is enough interest I will get it planned.
