Knife Island Campground

Knife Island Campground Knife Island Campground is a family owned and operated business in Esko,

Knife Island Campground is set in a natural state, with wooded areas throughout the sites. It affords a fantastic geological classroom with the slate rock formations caused by the glaciers. It is a historical landmine, and due to these facts, we do not allow any of these rock outcrops to be disturbed. We also do not allow any digging or burying of refuse, or the use of metal detectors. We want to insure that the natural beauty and historical enhancements are here and undisturbed for future generations to view and enjoy. We would also like to remind our guests that although we are nestled between a major freeway and highway, wildlife is in abundance. And remember, wild comes before life, in wildlife, so use caution at all times. Do Not approach or agitate any wild animals, as they may ATTACK! Thank you for considering us on your next visit, and if you are staying with us... WELCOME! Marcie & Tekla

We would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause some of you.

We have bears roaming the property here, and they loving nothing more than when you throw away your uneaten food.
Which makes a mess like this 🔽 for us to clean up.
We would like to ask that any food waste go immediately into our dumpster and not into the cans that we have placed for the convenience of our guests.
Any burnable products such as paper plates can be used as fire starter, which also reduces waste in our dumpster. Each site has a fire ring for your enjoyment and convenience. Do not be afraid to use it! But please, no fires outside the rings.

Although, technically, they do travel with their very own mobile home. 😉

Normally we'd be getting the campsites nice and tidy and the water flowing, right about now. However, it would appear mother nature has other ideas.
Sit back and enjoy the snow.
