Redwood County’s only park — Plum Creek Park — is adding camper cabins for the 2021 camping season.
According to Adam Kletscher, Plum Creek Park Ranger, Plum Creek Park has experienced great growth in its use over the past few years. As a result, in 2016 the county developed a master plan for the park, resulting in it being deemed “Regionally Significant” by the Greater Minnesota Parks and Trails Commission.
The Regional Significance status was necessary to apply for grant funding, resulting in a total of $347,000 in grant funds, allowing the county to move forward with improvements and additions, including 50-amp service for all overnight RV campsites, two new bathrooms, a self-rental kayak station, additional primitive camping sites, and a new trail connecting the upper and the lower park. One additional new bathroom is planned for the spring of 2021.
The latest additions include six new heated and air-conditioned camper cabins available for rent. Each cabin is 14’ x 26’, and features twin over full bunk beds, mattresses, kitchen table and chairs, and counter space.
