Bruno City Park



Take a nice 49 mile or so drive to Bruno and find the Bruno City Park. There are five campsites and you can stay up to six days. There is also a playground, picnic tables and a fire ring. It’s on the edge of a small town, so if you watch a lot of horror movies you may not want to stay here.

The furthest location on this list is located in Finland, MN. Roughly a 92 mile drive and offers a pet friendly campsite, boat ramps, hiking trails, RV parking and a lot of fun in the outdoors. This place is definitely worth the drive to make family memories.
