Quiet, private RV sites, each with full hook-ups, are set among a towering Norway pine forest. Enjoy fishing, swimming, canoeing, and kayaking on the sandy, crystal clear waters of the Fish Hook River. Take in the natural surroundings with a riverside picnic or scenic hike in the woods. Or simply relax around the campfire or in our newly remodeled clubhouse and game room.

Big Pines Resort has the ideal northern Minnesota location. It offers the tranquility of being up north and yet is conveniently located within the city limits of Park Rapids close to all area attractions, shopping, lakes, and golf courses. And, if you don’t feel like cooking, the best restaurants in Park Rapids are just a few blocks away!
We have many new upgrades including new, private, single-occupant bathrooms that are the nicest of any campground in Minnesota. Come for the camping and pamper yourself, too!
When we arrived, it was a gloomy evening at Big Pines, with POURING rain. But as we pulled into the Park, Jared the... Manager, met us. We didn't even have us get out of the truck! Immediately, we felt like Kinfolk returning home, after a long absence! Being September of the 2019 camping season, most sites were open. With the pouring rain, Jared encouraged us to drive through the grounds, look the sites over, and if we saw an easier site to maneuver into, we were welcome. Then he led us on foot, through the huge pines of the rain soaked grounds, making sure we got properly parked. We wouldn't have been able to manage alone, in such rain. Jared's kind and thoughtful hospitality, MADE our first night! He waited once we parked, making sure we didn't have any questions before sloshing off, (soaked to the bone), he never lost his smile, as he looked back, and waved. The grounds are beautiful, especially in Fall! The private Bath Houses are awesome and spacious.Even with pouring rain, many sites have been upgraded to improve parking. It's a scenic park, in a convenient location. We were greeted by friendly campers, AND it was QUIET. We watched deer wondering through, several evenings. The laundry & game Room are also nice. We're looking forward to the 2020 Camping Season at Big Pines! Thank you for the genuine hospitality!read more
We've stayed here twice and loved it both times. It's right in town, but with the big pine trees it feels like the... country. Jared, the host, is very helpful. Quiet and family friendly campground.read more

Big Pines is a magnificent and spacious site. Jared was exceptionally polite and helpful. Being met by the site... manager in the parking lot, as we drove up, is a unique experience. This is the first place that I ever considered an extended stay. The new bathrooms are deluxe and rank in the top three of the many, many campgrounds where we have camped over many years. We wish you the very best and trust in a successful future for you. Derek & Deon Smith, Eagle, ID July, 2019read more
We stayed this past weekend for the first time. It was awesome. It's a nice campground, sites are good size and level.... There are lots of trees, and you would never know you are in town with the sounds of nature that you hear all night long. The bathrooms are very clean and there's even a laundry room. The hosts are awesome. We will definitely be back.read more
We had a blast at this beautiful campground. The sites are huge with stone fire pits and a picnic table. We drove in... thinking we were driving into a neighborhood. It’s very close to town and only a short 35 minutes to Itasca. The kids loved the playground and riding bikes around the gravel roads. There is an outbuilding with a shower and gathering place with two arcade games, but we didn’t use them. We’d definitely come back.read more
