Owner description: Discover the past, present and future of Minnesota's forests through guided tours of a 1900s era logging camp and hands-on environmental learning programs. Board the moored river "wanigan," a floating cook shack, take a seat on the porch of a 1930s Minnesota Forest Service patrolman's cabin, climb a 100-foot fire tower and explore the site's self-guided trails.

really enjoyed climbing the fire tower and learning from the camp cookie, backsmith and store hands. It outpaced my expectations. Very pretty grounds for walking too. A Grand Rapids must see.

It's been a while since I was here, but it was a great experience. We took our students from school there for a field trip and it was very well organized and run. The kids had a blast and learned a lot.

Nice attraction especially for families with children. Also people who have been associated with logging. There is adequate parking, but allow adequate time to take it all in.

My kids go here with the school it seems at least once a year and I love to volunteer at that time. The history center has the old logging camp set up and is authentic! It's wonderful to see this history kept alive, my kids Love this place!!!
