Campground Overview

Since 1949, we've been a family-operated resort & campground on Swan Lake in Fergus Falls, MN. We offer lakeside cabins, tent camping, and full hook-up, pull-through RV sites. Here, there is time to slow down, room to breathe, and lots to explore.

Soak up the sun on the sandy beach, hike through the hidden trails, and take the pontoon out for a cruise. Be sure to turn the tech off and challenge a rival to ping pong, crack a cold one, and explore the water on stand-up paddleboard. Bring the little ones and get messy at the arts & crafts table, catch a sunfish off the docks, and indulge in s’mores around the campfire. Don’t forget to show us what you got on the volleyball court and savor an ice cream at the camp store. Curl up in a hammock and get lost in a good book, smile at the flowers and gaze in awe at the night sky. Just be.

All 12 of our pull-through sites have 20/30/50 amp electric, water, and on-site sewer. You'll find a fire ring, picnic table, and concrete patio slab at each. The public facilities have hot showers, laundry, and flush toilets. Each of 5 cabins have fully stocked kitchens, full bathrooms, and sleep 6-8 comfortably. There are charcoal grills on the deck, picnic tables to enjoy an outdoor meal together, fire rings to relax in the evening, and satellite TV for the rainy days. Our tent sites are right behind the sandy beach and include a picnic table and fire ring with a cooking grate.
