Andover/Coon Rapids, Anoka County • Daily or Annual park pass needed
Bunker Hills Campground, part of 1,600-acre Bunker Hills Regional Park, is one of two public campgrounds in Anoka County.
As you can see from the photos here, this campground is beautifully situated. Many of the spacious sites are in a wooded area, giving you plenty of privacy and room to stretch.
Bunker has 72 campsites—both rustic and with partial hook-ups (water and electric). There’s also group site for up to 30 people and two camping cabins.
The camping season runs from the end of April through early-October. If you don’t mind being extra rustic, you can still camp through MEA weekend, but without running water and restroom facilities (although the friendly staff at the Campground Office will let you use their restrooms!).
What is there to Do at Bunker Hills Park?
Plenty! Here are some of your options:
- Just relax and enjoy being out in nature, in the middle of busy Anoka County.
- Bunker Beach—The largest outdoor water park in Minnesota is just a short bike ride away from the campground.
- Bunker Park Stable—Campers 8 years old and up can go for an hour horseback trail ride. The Stable can be accessed within the Park as well as by taking the northeast entrance, past the Activity Center.
- Walk, hike, run and bike on the many miles of paved and natural surface trails.
What Else to Know
Because of its easy proximity to the metro area, Bunker Hills Campground is very popular. Consider making reservations ahead of time, especially if you want to camp over a summer weekend.
As with all public campgrounds, rates are very reasonable—between $20 and $32 per night, depending on the amenities you want. There’s an $8 fee if you reserve online.
The campground entrance is closest to the South Entrance of Bunker Hills Park, off Highway 14 in Coon Rapids.
