Sherwood Forest Campground

Campground or RV Park
Larry Aho

This campground overlooks Lake Ore-Be-Gone in Gilbert, MN. So named as a pun on radio host Garrison Kellior's fictional Lake Wobegon, Lake Ore-Be-Gone is actually a series of three reclaimed mine pits and a shining example of re-purposed land on the Iron Range. In fact, the spring water filling this 400-foot-deep man made lake is ideal for scuba divers, and several scuba organizations hosts events there each year. Fishing is also popular, as the lake is home to lake trout, walleye and northern pike. The municipal campground includes a swimming beach, boat launch, dock and pavilion. For bicyclists, there is direct access to the paved, 125-mile Mesabi Trail, and for motorsports enthusiasts, there's an off-road vehicle trail with direct access to the nearby Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Areas. The campground is also just blocks from the Superior National Forest Scenic Byway.
