Minn. Town Considers New Seasonal Campsites
The Menahga (Minn.) City Council is considering developing eight seasonal campsites at its Memorial Forest Campground, the Park Rapids Enterprise reported.
City Administrator Janette Bower, Utilities Supervisor Frank Thelin and former city council member Roger Henstorf shared their findings about other seasonal sites in the area, amenities that are typically offered, what Menahga’s city campground could provide as well as preliminary cost estimates.
Amenities range from heated pools with cement patios to basic electrical hookup. Rates varied from $1,700 up to $2,400 per year.
Menahga’s existing campground, located along Highway 71 south, covers 40 acres. The park offers about 25 campsites, half of which have both electrical hookups and water, Thelin said. A few are primitive campsites and the rest have electricity, but no water. There are two sheltered pavilions, a shower house and other picnic facilities.
