Back of the Moon Hike

In the 1940's, this was the secret retreat for Many Point's founder Wint Hartman. This special, secluded place is a 3.7 mile hike from Many Point's main administration area. It's not easy to get to, but it's worth the trip.
 

Back of the Moon Overnight

You've taken the big hike, why not stay awhile? Three log adirondack shelters are located on a crest above the lake for your troop's use.
 

Yurt Overnight

Arrive by canoe or kayak at a secluded spot on Many Point Lake where your troop can stay in a 20ft diameter round Mongolian tent, complete with skylight.
 

Troop Sauna

A trip to the north land of Minnesota is not complete without experiencing a real sauna. Work with your commissioner to reserve a night to use the sauna located at your camp's beach.
