TWIN CITIES, MN — Starting Monday, what’s known as “dispersed” and “remote camping” will be allowed in Minnesota, per Gov. Tim Walz’s latest executive order called “Stay Safe MN.”
A dispersed campsite is defined as a “single campsite, not in a developed campground, used for overnight camping.” A remote campsite is a “designated backpack or watercraft campsite, not in a developed campground, used for overnight camping.”
Remote and dispersed camping typically happen in Minnesota state forests. Find out more on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website.
Developed campgrounds will remain closed to recreational camping. Hiking and fishing are allowed at campgrounds, however.
