Back to Twin Cities Touring
A pleasant campground, Lake Elmo is a simple park.
It’s a bunch of side roads to get there, and they’re not particularly busy.
Why I would go again
- It’s one of the closest places to the Twin Cities, and it’s a big park
Why I would not go again
- Last I checked, there’s a firing range nearby and it’s loud

From Kari Rudd:
For Lake Elmo, I remember riding my super heavy turquoise Columbia Firebolt cruiser from Cathedral Hill in St. Paul to your place in Minneapolis, because I was going to borrow Kara’s bike. But, when I got there, it turns out that because I am even shorter than Kara, her bike was too big for me and I couldn’t ride it! So I biked back through St. Paul with you and Fred, on my cruiser, and all the way to Lake Elmo! When we got there I think I might have put some firewood in the basket. It was very cute. That was a really fun trip. I know we had some dumb joke we kept repeating the whole time but I cannot remember what it was. And then on the way back I think we all went to my place and made soup or something.
