Below is a description of the facilities available for use at Smokey Timbers Camp, a venue catered to organization and family groups - please note: individual campsites are not available, they are an add-on to the Main Camp rental. For Rental information, please click on Rental Info below. Before then, take some time to learn what the camp has to offer, what you may be interested in, and how it may fit you and your groups' needs.
The Lake & Boathouse
Lake Miltona is one of the premier lakes in the Alexandria Lakes Area. Smokey Timbers features 550' of pristine lakeshore with a swimming area, dock and sandy lake bottom. The boathouse has a variety of equipment for your use - canoes, kayaks, paddleboards (both adult and youth), paddleboats and lifejackets, along with a couple of aluminum boats. A dock is available for boating, swimming, and fishing activities. If fishing is on our to-do list, Lake Miltona has excellent fishing, and is one of the few to offer muskie fishing!
The Screen House & Camp Deck
The Screen House & Camp Deck is the hub of the camp. With the Kitchen, Bath/Shower House and fire pit all adjacent, it's no wonder. The Screen House provides shelter from rain and bugs and is equipped with a stone fireplace for cooking or staying warm on colder days. It is ideal for hosting group and family gatherings to enjoy the outdoors with the convenience of having things close at hand.
The bath/Shower House
The camp added modern amenities when the Bath/Shower House was built. It's conveniently located in the heart of the camp adjacent to the Screen House and Kitchen Building, and a short walk from the Large Yurt, Camper cabin and the Group campsite.
Conveniently located near the Screen House, the kitchen is fully stocked with what you'll need to store food and prepare meals for your group. The facility contains: large commercial sink, potable hot and cold running water, refrigerator, pots, pans, stove, and both a refrigerator and freezer. There are also tables available for food preparation.
The Bunkhouse has an 8-10 person capacity. It includes bunk beds, kitchen with stove and refrigerator, and a bathroom. Although there is running water within the bunkhouse during the summer, it is shut off in the winter with a water source close by. A front deck overlooks Lake Miltona to enjoy the view. This is a nice unit to rent for a small gathering or retreat.
The Large Yurt is an oversized tent designed for summer and winter use. This large area is ideal for a large meeting area or for hosting special events. A gas fireplace takes the chill out during winter use. If you're in for a big slumber party, this is your spot! Just bring cots or sleeping mats.
This venue is off the beaten path and means a bit of a hike to reach it. Fortunately, it's totally worth the effort! You will get to take part in the uniqueness of a yurt camping experience in the secluded woods of the camp.
Lions Den Camper Cabin
The Lions Den Camper Cabin, supplies donated by the Miltona Lions Club, is a little like a camper and a little like a cabin. There are plenty of bunks in this building to comfortably sleep 8-10 people. The wood burning fireplace heats up the space quickly. Our guests are going to love their time together here!
These sites include water, picnic tables, and a fire pit. There are four sites that also include a shelter. All sites are nestled within the majestic woods of west central Minnesota.
