For years now, I have not been a person who will choose to camp in a tent.  I did that stuff in my 20s, and it was uncomfortable then.  But I think you tend to be more willing to do the work when you're younger... or you are ok making do with what you have more so when you are younger than later in life.

Either way, I'm not staying in a tent if I can avoid it. Give me a camper or a cabin and I will be much better.  And that's what's great about True North Basecamp - located in Crosby, Minnesota which is about an hour and a half from St. Cloud.

True North Basecamp is accessible all year round.  There are several trails around the area that are perfect for fat tire biking, cross country skiing and hiking.  You can stay in one of their cozy cabins and enjoy a fire outside by the firepit with a hot bevie of your choice, roast some marshmallows, or just enjoy the outside in winter while hanging by the fire.

The website shows that they are currently registering guests for winter, Each of the cabins is just over $100 to rent.

Each cabin is designed with a nod to Cuyuna’s mining heritage and provide spectacular views of lakes and nature.

The cabins provide the perfect amount of amenities so you won’t miss the modern conveniences of your life back home. All you need is a pillow, sleeping bag and towel and you’ll be set for rest and relaxation.

Each cabin also features a few singles and a full sized bed, WiFi and USB charging ports.  You do need to bring your own bedding, however.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
