Welcome to Babbitt Campground & RV Park

Babbitt Campground & RV Park is a new campground that will open the spring of 2023.

Welcome to Northeast Minnesota’s newest Campground & RV Park nestled amongst the pine trees, adjacent to the Southern shores of Birch Lake near the town of Babbitt. We offer large full hook up sites, a full-service shower house/restroom, a camp store that offers firewood, ice, soft drinks, ice cream, camping supplies, and gift items. Our facility also houses a fish cleaning house and extra parking for boat trailers and ATVs for your convenience.

The Campground is located within walking distance to Birch Lake, Babbitt’s Public Beach, Heartland ATV Trail, and a paved bike path to allow easy access to leisure activities such as fishing, boating, ATVing, swimming, or just enjoying the nature of the north woods. We are also only a short drive to many of the area’s attractions such as The International Wolf Center, The North American Bear Center, The Dorothy Molter Museum, multiple golf courses including Babbitt, Ely, The Wilderness, and Giants Ridge, restaurants, and local shopping in Babbitt and Ely. 

Come stay a day, a week, a month, or the whole season. We gladly welcome your visit!

Give us a call at 218-235-7921.


We’re Dave & Carol Schinker, your resident camp hosts. Here’s a bit of information about ourselves. Originally, we’re from Nebraska and Iowa, however, when we retired in 2017, we sold our house and bought an RV to travel the country. Since that time, we’ve visited 30 states and have spent our summers in northern Minnesota working as camp hosts near Ely and Kabetogama. We consider ourselves summer Minnesotans. We’re excited to be team members at the Babbitt Campground & RV Park for its inaugural season. Our goal is for you, our guests, to have the most enjoyable and memorable experience so that you’ll want to come time and time again and be a part of our campground family. RVing has given us many great experiences meeting new friends and see memorable places. Our hope is that you also have the same. If you have any questions, concerns, comments, or you want to relate your own experiences, please feel free to tell us.

Dave & Carol
