Boondocking in Minnesota!

Boondocking in Minnesota is plentiful within Superior National Forest and its large network of state forests. There is also dispersed camping within the state wildlife management areas and state fishing lakes. There are no BLM lands, however. Check with the state’s laws and regulations on camping before setting up on public lands.
