In The Woods Campground – New Chamber Member
Our names are David McArthur and Natalie Vanderplaats, we have two children Jenna and Dylan and a grandson Haiden. We currently live and work around Ogema Minnesota north of Detroit Lakes. David is retired law enforcement and is currently managing a youth diversion court, outpatient and inpatient chemical dependency treatment centers and Natalie has worked in the finance field for the past 25 years in various capacities.
As a couple, we have always enjoyed all summer and winter outdoor recreation together. We always loved camping and visiting the Walker area and along the way we met new people and gained new friends. We started to visit on how it would be great to do something for ourselves, so we thought why not bring our love for the outdoors into something we have always enjoyed and provide that to others. A few years back, with help from a local real estate agent, we were able to purchase a 32 acre parcel on Onigum Road to invest in and to make our future home, ever since then we have spent all of our spare time here and more. This started the venture we now call In The Woods Campground.
In The Woods Campground has a total of 41 sites, 10 for seasonal use, and the remaining 31 sites will be for overnight/daily use. We designed the camping sites by doubling the green space so campers can enjoy extra space for activities or privacy. All the sites are provided with all rv hookups; water, sewer, and electric for our campers convenience. We built a modern shower house that is handicap accessible with huge showers and a laundry facility is also available for our seasonal guests.
