Copyright West Forty RV Park. All rights reserved.​ 

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!


Due to extremely dry conditions, campfires are temporarily banned at West Forty RV Park. While the State of Minnesota and the Department of Natural Resources may have different burning restrictions, we are privately owned and are taking this action to protect the wooded portions of the land on and around our property. We are monitoring conditions daily and will update campers on conditions as they check in.

Check-in is 3 p.m. / Check-out is 12 noon.

We allow up to 4 adults per campsite; additional guests are $5 per day per person. Children 15 years old and under always stay for free! ​

Our campground store is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 3-9 p.m.

We sell firewood, ice, camping supplies and have propane tank exchange available on site.

  • Firewood - $5.50 per bundle plus tax
  • Ice - $2.00 per 5lb bag
  • Propane tank exchange - 20 lb. tank is $22.50 plus tax and a 30 lb. tank is $34.00 plus tax

We rent outdoor games like ladder ball toss, beanbag toss/cornhole and bocce ball for $5.00 per day. We also rent tents, 10x10 canopies and other camping items by the day or for the weekend.

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.

Welcome to Gilbert - Minnesota's Off-Road Capital

West Forty RV Park

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. ​


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.
