West Forty RV Park

Campground Office/Store Hours

Our park office/store is staffed between 3 and 9 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On most weekends the owner is available at his on-site residence at site B-1. When the owner is not available, campers can call or text 218-248-7362 for assistance.

​Arrivals that are outside our office hours will have welcome packets left at the blue information kiosk as you enter the campground for self-check-in. 


  • Check-in time is between 3 and 9 p.m. daily. Early check-in for customers who arrive before 3 p.m. or late check-in for those who arrive after 9 p.m. may be available upon request in advance. 
  • Check-out time is 12 p.m. daily. Late check-out may be available upon request.

Use the contact us form or call 218-248-7362 to inquire about availability so we can modify your arrival or departure times and ensure our staff is available to assist you. There is a $10 fee for early check-ins or late-check-ins if our paid staff needs to come in early or stay late. This charge will be waived when the owner is able to process the early/late check-in.

Cancellation Policy

All reservations require a minimum one night deposit. A deposit will be refunded if cancelled at least 7 days prior to your arrival date, minus a $20.00 cancellation fee and $3.50 reservation fee.

Failure to cancel your reservation will result in a charge for the full amount due after 24-hours of not showing up for the space reserved. 

Event ​weekend and holiday reservations - minimum stay requirements
Reservations for event weekends - Crawl 4 The Cure, etc. - require a 2-night minimum stay. All holiday weekend reservations including Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day require a 3-night minimum stay.

Site Lock Guarantee
Purchasing Site Lock during the reservation booking process is always an optional choice for our customers. You do not need to include this feature when booking, however, note that we reserve the right to change the location of a site selected  if there is an operational need to move guests. On those rare occasions when we need to move a guest, we do our best to move the reservation to the most similar site available. (i.e. 30AMP drive-through with full hook-up to another 30AMP full hook-up site.)

We think of Site Lock as an insurance policy of sorts for our campers. Guests who purchase site lock will not be moved without compensation. If the exact campsite with site lock included in reservation is not available for any reason, we will refund 25% of the site rate for the duration of the stay and upgrade your site to a site with more/better amenities if one is available.

Maximum occupancy rules

All sites - group or individual - allow for up to four (4) adults 16 years old per site and older plus two drivable (non-ATV) vehicles per paid site is included in the campsite rate. Children 15 years old or under stay for free. Additional people over 16 will be charged $5 per person per day for all campsites. 

Trailers and additional vehicles including cars, trucks and jeeps should be parked in the designated campground overflow parking to reduce congestion in the campground. Parking of vehicles in our overflow lot is free.

Two tents or one camper and one tent are allowed per standard site. Group sites have different allowances for number of tents or campers allowed per site as noted in the site comments section during the booking process. 

No Outside Firewood

West Forty RV Park does not allow outside wood from greater than a 50 mile radius of Gilbert. If you bring in wood to the campground, it must be certified by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture or the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and you need to have a receipt for its purchase from within 50 miles of Gilbert. Construction wood is prohibited as well due to the increased embers produced by this type of wood which increases the risk of damage to the surrounding area or other campers in the campground.​

Firewood for Sale On-Site

Approved local firewood is available for purchase on-site in the office or in advance at the time of booking. Our wood bundles average approximately 45-60 minutes of burn time each and can be purchased at the office/store for $5.50 per bundle plus tax. We provide complimentary delivery of firewood to your site.

Campers can purchase firewood during regular office hours or they can drop off a firewood order slip in the office drop-box by 3 p.m. to have it charged to their campsite account and it will be delivered by 5 p.m. 

We monitor DNR fire danger on a weekly basis. Generally, campfires within our campground are allowed when contained in the fire-rings we provide. We will update campers about any burning restrictions at the time of check-in. 


West Forty RV Park loves pets and we are a dog-friendly campground. We believe that all dogs can be either well-mannered or aggressive at any time. The ultimate responsibility for pet behaviors falls on their owners. We encourage all to be aware of how their fur family members respond in a camping environment with many people and pets from different backgrounds.

Owners are required to pick up after your pet. We have a dog waste bag station located at our office. Please do your part to help us keep our campground clean and free of pet waste which can spread diseases to other pets or people. Pets must be leashed at all times when they are outdoors per Gilbert City ordinance. Complaints of excessive barking will result in one warning for the owners. Multiple complaints of excessive barking may result in being asked to leave the campground without refund.

We also know that some dogs can be aggressive around strangers. Aggressive breeds of dogs must be kept inside your camper/RV or accompanied by an adult at all times. Aggressive breeds are those with the following genetic lines: Mastiffs, Rottweilers, Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies, Doberman Pinschers, Akitas, Chow Chows, German Shepherds, Great Danes, Pit Bull Terriers, Bulldogs and Wolf-hybrids. Any reports of dog aggression towards people will result in eviction from the campground without a refund.

Quiet time

Quiet time at West 40 RV Park is 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and midnight to 8 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Quiet times will be enforced by the on-site park host. Failure to honor quiet time may result in eviction from the campground without refund.
