West Forty RV Park and Campground

Mid-October - West Forty RV Park water shut off

We remain open for campers through October 31 and are regularly the last campground in the area to close, but when the weather hits temperatures below 32 degrees consistently or we have a hard/killing frost, we need to turn off water to all campsites. Seasonal campers staying on sites A1-A3 and B1-B9 have access to a water hose from the main office building to fill fresh water tanks. All other campers are welcome to fill up their tanks at check-in. Sewer and electric service is unaffected. 

October 20-23 - M.E.A. (Minnesota Education Association) weekend

For Minnesotans with kids, this is one of the busiest travel weekends of the year and can be a great time to get out and do some fall riding in Gilbert's OVH park. We will be open with electric and sewer service on all of our drive through sites and have a water filling station at our office to fill fresh water tanks at the time of check-in. 

October 28-30 - West Forty RV Park 2022 final weekend of the season

Weather in Minnesota is very unpredictable, but we plan to be open right up until October 31 (with limited water service) for those who want to get in some late season riding. At the end of this weekend, we change over to our winter RV/camper storage season and close the gates until next year! 

There is always something to do during the camping season in Gilbert or in the other nearby Quad Cities of Eveleth, Mountain Iron or Virginia. As we hear of new popular events, we add them to our online calendar below. If you have an event that you would like posted, please use our Contact Us form to send us more information and include it in our list.
