We have four exclusive tent sites, two group tent sites (up to four tents per group site) and eight additional tent/small camper sites bordering wooded areas. Some have electric and others are rustic. All tent sites have nearby water for cooking. Restrooms or porta-potties are just a short walk. Each site includes a fire ring and picnic tables.

There are 22 drive-through, full-hookup sites for large campers or RV's with lots that are 75 feet long. We also have 17 individual back-in sites that are between 40-70 feet. These are all great spots to set up camp while you explore the Mesabi Iron Range. Each site includes a fire pit and picnic table, plus 20, 30 or 50 amp electric. Many of our back-in sites have water and sewer.
Let us be your base-camp when you come to enjoy Minnesota's Off-Road Capital or any of our local attractions. We are family-owned since 2004 and provide a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of open space so you can roam about. We offer the best camping value in Gilbert!

Getting to the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area
West 40 RV Park has a short, unpaved connector trail just outside our campground entrance which connects directly to the Genoa Trail. The unpaved section of the Genoa Trail can be used by ATV's, OHMs and side-by-sides to get to the main connecting trail. Jeeps, Trackers, etc. can access a similar connector trail just outside our campground to the OHV park. There is no need to trailer vehicles to the Iron Range OHV park.
