West Forty RV Park

Your RV Basecamp

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.

Getting to the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area

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.
