Stoney Point campground sprawls out over a peninsula which overlooks the gigantic Leech Lake in the Chippewa National Forest. The campground itself is located fourteen miles east of Walker, Minnesota. Leech Lake is the third largest lake in the state of Minnesota at 99,999 acres.



Stoney Point is a highly developed campground with two boat harbors, a swimming beach, a picnic area, fish cleaning station, electricity, showers, dump station and a boat access site. The grounds are relatively open and grassy with breezy old growth hardwood trees filling in the spaces. Some of the trees are over two hundred years old which adds a special feel to the campground. While the sites are spacious, I would say privacy is just OK due to the open nature of the campground.

Gigantic Leech Lake is quite the sight from the campground, seeming to stretch on forever. For those interested in water based recreation, this is a tough place to beat. The lake is big enough to find solitude. The fishing is known to be first rate on top of everything else. Although I found this campground very busy, it still seemed like a nice place to stay. For those tenting, you may want one of the more remote lakes in the forest as this seems to be mostly an RV campground.
