Walk across the mighty Mississippi as it starts its winding journey 2,552 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. Stand under towering pines at Preacher's Grove. Visit the Itasca Indian Cemetery or Wegmann's Cabin, landmarks of centuries gone by. Camp under the stars, or stay the night at the historic Douglas Lodge or cabins. Explore Wilderness Drive past the 2,000-acre Wilderness Sanctuary, one of Minnesota's seven National Natural Landmarks.

    Elk Lake Group Camp - Hand pump for water, vault toilets, and a small, screened shelter building are available. Tents, trailers, campers, and RVs are permitted.

    Cost will be $25 per person and can be paid when you arrive.
