Exciting things are happening in Cuyuna Country

True North Basecamp is the place to stay and experience it all in 2017!  We at True North Basecamp continue to focus on providing memorable experiences for all our guests.  Book cabin or campsite and create some memorable experiences in 2017.

We made some great changes at True North Basecamp in 2016.  Expect some excellent changes to the campground this season that includes revisiting the layout of our campsites, which will increase the spacing between some sites.  Wifi access to the cabins was recently enhanced, and we are working on improved access throughout the property.  We continually seek feedback from our past guests, and make the necessary changes to improve our guest’s experiences.

Two very cool new businesses opened in Crosby the past six months; Cuyuna Brewing and Red Raven.  Cuyuna Brewing is the place to go for craft beer (http://www.cuyunabrewing.com/).  Red Raven (http://www.redraven.bike/) is the newest café, offering great coffee, beer and food.  Both businesses are a short ¼ mile bike ride or walk from True North Basecamp, and are a must visit after a day of riding.

More businesses are in the planning stages for 2017 as well as building more mountain bike trail.  At the annual Cuyuna Mountain Bike Association meeting held on January 12th, volunteer President Aaron Hautala outlined what is coming to Cuyuna Country in 2017.  Check out the video for more details: http://lptv.org/cuyuna-lakes-mountain-bike-crew-prepares-for-an-exciting-year/

Remember that Cuyuna is not just about biking.  With the many mine pit lakes scattered throughout the recreation area, paddle boarding is a popular activity at True North Basecamp.  Read all about paddle boarding on Armor Mine #2: https://paddlenorth.com/blogs/paddleboardingminnesota/paddleboardincuyuna
