Nestled in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes resort area, Star Lake Wilderness Camp (SLWC) is a bit of untouched heaven that allows both kids and adults to experience a wilderness setting by sleeping in tents and cooking over a true campfire. Campers can also experience the view of an undeveloped lake filled with only the sight of loons, lush trees and pristine blue water, all from Star Lake’s sandy private beach. You have to see it to believe it!

Canoeing, kayaking, tubing, snorkeling, sand volleyball, hiking, tenting, low-ropes course, night games, natural bog, campfire singing, campfire cooking, and  campfire building are just some of the experiences that you will find at Star Lake Wilderness Camp. Give us a visit… We’ll save a spot at the campfire for you.
