Opening delayed for Chippewa Loop in Norway Beach Campground

CASS LAKE, MN – The Chippewa National Forest has announced a delay in opening the Chippewa Loop campground, part of the Norway Beach Recreation Area complex near Cass Lake, MN.

The campground was originally scheduled to open May 9th, but the date has been moved to May 23 due to the cold spring, remaining ice on the lake and maintenance on the water system.

Forest recreation staff noted that Knutson Dam and West Winnie campgrounds on the Chippewa National Forest are both scheduled to open May 7th and offer alternatives for those planning to camp over Fishing Opener weekend.

Visitors may also contact Leech Lake Recreation Area at Federal Dam for sites with electricity.

For more information, please check the Forest website at or call 218-335-8600.
