As part of the Chippewa National Forest, Stony Point contains several opportunities for sightseeing. Guests can fish, swim, and explore the surrounding forests via several different hiking trails.
43 total sites are available inside Stony Point, with a couple of different options offered at the same price point. Guests can choose a standard walk-up site, which features neither plumbing or electrical connections. There are also electrical sites with 30 amp hookups. All available sites come with a fire ring and picnic table and are found close to public restroom facilities as well as access to drinking water.
A shower station is also available to Stony Point guests, as well as a dump station in case you've decided to come in an RV or camper. Potential guests should note that Stony Point does not offer advanced reservations, so it's wise to call ahead when planning your trip. If you've decided to bring along your canine companion, make sure they stay on a leash while keeping clear of the public areas.
Due to its prime location on the edge of Leech Lake, Stony Point offers robust fishing opportunities throughout the year. Anglers typically catch species like northern pike or walleye, provided they've come with the required state tags and licenses for the sport. Make sure to bring all of your gear as well, as there aren't rental or sales facilities in the immediate area. If Fido is your fishing companion for the day, be sure to keep them on a leash, away from other guests, and out of the water.
If you're more of a hiker, Stony Point contains access to several trails. Four-pawed fitness freaks will pawsitively love the Paul Bunyan State Trail, Minnesota's longest biking trail at a whopping 120 miles long! You can also sniff and explore Soo Line Trail and North Country National Scenic Trail. Canines are welcome to walk on these trails, as long as owners clean up any messes left behind.
