This beautiful wooded 98 acre park is located 1 1/2 miles north of Auburn along the North Raccoon River. Camping, picnicking, fishing, hiking, canoeing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing are all popular activities.
Grant Park has three separate camping areas. Area 1 has 25 camping sites with full hookup– sewer, water and electric (30 and 50 amp). Areas 2 and 3 are available for primitive camping. A restroom/shower is located in Area 1 as well as a playground, horseshoe pits and picnic areas. Camping facilities are open April 1 through mid-October, weather permitting.
Grant Park has an enclosed shelterhouse located near the modern camping area. It is available for reservation from April 1 through mid-October or on a first-come, first-serve basis. The shelterhouse has indoor bathrooms, a fireplace, and outdoor grills and seats approximately 100 people.
The North Raccoon River winds along the eastern boundary of the park and provides excellent opportunities for fishing and viewing wildlife. A lowhead dam provides chances for walleye, channel catfish and carp. Bowhunting is allowed in Grant Park during the appropriate seasons and hunting with a firearm is only allowed after the camping area has been closed for the season (mid-October to April 1). Please check with the SCCB for exact dates.
