Overview

Stony Point is located on the southwest shore of beautiful Leech Lake, in the heart of Minnesota's Chippewa National Forest. Visitors enjoy the area for its boating, canoeing, fishing and birding opportunities.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the banks of Leech Lake in an open, grassy area, surrounded by an old growth forest of oak, elm, maple and ash trees. Some trees are over 200 years old.

Leech Lake is the third-largest lake in the state, with nearly 200 miles of shoreline. Campers commonly hear the telltale call of loons on the water.

Recreation:

Boating, canoeing and fishing are very popular activities enjoyed by visitors to the campground. Anglers will find walleye, perch, bass, northern pike and muskie, where every cast has the potential to yield a trophy-sized catch. A boat ramp and docks are located within the campground.

Miles of scenic hiking trails meander around Leech Lake, including the Paul Bunyon State Trail, Heartland Trail, Soo Line Trail and North Country National Scenic Trail.

Facilities:

The campground offers several sites with electric hookups, and one walk-to tent site without hookups. Flush and vault toilets, showers, drinking water and a dump station are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

The very popular tourist town of Walker, Minnesota is located approximately 14 miles west of the campground, with a variety of restaurants, shops and festivals available there throughout the year.
