Camp du Nord is a getaway destination for families, groups and individuals. Deep in the serene beauty of the north woods, we offer a pristine wilderness setting that promotes relaxation, exploration and community. Camp is situated on Burntside Lake near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and offers miles of hiking and skiing trails, as well as family and group programming throughout the year.

With a variety of unique cabins, you can find one that is just right for you. Use your cabin as a base to explore the area on your own time. Fall and spring reservations include use of canoes, kayaks, and rowboats. In the winter cross-country ski and snowshoe rentals are available. Cabin reservations include one visit to du Nord's traditional Finnish sauna during
your stay. Financial Assistance is available!
