This campground was formerly part of the surrounding Potlatch Paper Company. In October 2007, the County did a land exchange with Potlatch Corporation to add 17 acres to the campground for future campsite expansion, as well as to allow more area for walking and hiking trails.
The forested area at the Tree Farm Landing is managed by the Department of Natural Resources - Forestry Division and sports a very picturesque view of the river from above while the campsites are located on the flat next to the river with a calm, generally shallow, and sandy swimming area and a place to launch tubes and canoes.
John Rife, Sr. Memorial
Another attraction at the Tree Farm Landing is a memorial placed at the Tree Farm during summer 2010, recognizing long-time supporter of the Crow Wing River Trail, John Rife, Sr. for his contribution in getting the designation for the canoe trail.
From here it is approximately 3.5 miles to the next campground.
