Tents are the thing. Kawashaway offers a rustic, primitive camping environment. Showers are a communal effort of pumping water from our well into Lola & Trixie (two large tanks) that get heated by a woodfire. There are two outhouses on the land. Our very little indoor sleeping space is only made available to those who truly need it. If you require special accommodations, please e-mail us. Special needs accommodations (electricity, daily housekeeping...) may also be arranged with our neighbors at Crooked Lake Resort.


Parking is limited (as are petroleum and oxygen), so carpooling is encouraged. If you need a ride or would like to offer a ride, please check the corresponding box on the registration form.

How do I get there?

If you need a map and/or directions to the Sanctuary, be sure to request it while registering online, or contact us. The Sanctuary is around a 5-hour drive north of the Minneapolis - St. Paul International airport and around a 2-hour drive from Duluth.

Minnesota's Peculiar and Delightfully Unpredictable Weather

How to prepare for the unexpected? Last year, in late May, it was as warm as 80 and as cool as 33. Rainy days in springtime are not unusual in the northland. A short skirt in the afternoon may lead to longjohns and umbrella by nightfall so pack for changeable springtime weather! Layers rule!
