Whether you want the additional comforts of home with an RV or more primitive camping in a pristine wilderness, the Lake of the Woods vacation area has what you are looking for. Many campgrounds have manicured sites that offer picnic areas, showers and facilities to make your stay enjoyable. There are places with sand beaches so you can enjoy the view in between sun bathing, swimming and building sand castles. Camp grounds are available from one end of the lake to the other and offer daily, weekly and seasonal camping opportunities. The many provincial parks located throughout the Lake of the Woods vacation area are also excellent places to pitch a tent or bring your RV to enjoy the lake.
Campfires are a wonderful part of the camping experience but can be a real concern for safety of humans and wildlife. Please follow burning regulations when enforced as dry conditions will dictate a restriction for all open fires. Use safe campfire strategies to prevent a campfire from spreading to other wildlife such as never leaving a fire unattended and using water to extinguish a campfire. Use only local firewood to prevent the migration of harmful wood eating insects and to help keep the wilderness alive for future generations.
Non-residents are required to purchase a camping permit for use of Crown (Government) Lands. Non-resident camping is restricted in White Fish Bay and some of the surrounding areas on and around Lake of the Woods. Length of stay per campsite is also regulated. Be sure to check with your licensing agent to ensure you are camping on Crown Land and other restrictions that may apply. When camping in the wilderness be sure to keep your campsite safe and secure from wildlife as well as removing litter so that future campers can also enjoy the pristine wilderness on Lake of the Woods.
