Okontoe is nestled in one
hundred acres of beautifully wooded land, 27 miles up the historic
Gunflint Trail. The family owned campground is bordered on
both sides by the small, non-motorized lakes, Bow and Quiver. The
lakes have small-mouth, walleye, northern, and panfish, hence the
Chippewa name of Okontoe, or "waters of many
fish". A shallow creek runs through the middle of the
campground to join the lakes.
Nearly all of the 32 campsites are
lake-side or lake-view and privately spaced. Each site is furnished with
a picnic table and fire grate. We welcome your pets, and ask
that in consideration of other campers, they be cleaned up after and
kept on a leash.
We welcome your horses as
well! Thirteen sites in our campground have been developed to
accommodate equestrian camping. In addition to a picnic table and fire
grate, each campsite is equipped with a stationary 30' long x 7' high
cable stakeout with space for four horses. The sites are spacious and
have room for 50' to 90' of rig (truck, trailer, etc.)
The campground opens on Memorial
Day weekend and closes at the end of September.
