Really enjoyed staying here. Was our first camping adventure with kids. Bathrooms were nice along with an indoor area which was a nice diversion in a little rain.
Hiked from the campgrounds to Taylor’s falls area.
Very cool exploring the rock cliffs along the river, including the glacially created “potholes”, otherworldly! Nice campground close to the water! We camped early in the season before the mosquitoes.
Great park, beautiful views, nice sites
Pulled our new camper here for the weekend. Loved every minute it. Beautiful park and nice campground.
This site 37, is in a great park but really lacks the details that make for a great campsite. It is completely open, has no privacy as it’s between the entrance and the showers. It is great if you like having that closeness to the bathroom but it feels like it’s just a spot of land they needed to make use of. You also have the RV dumpsite on the other side of you and the garbage dumpsters. Smelled fine while we were there but in the heat of Summer, who knows.
This group site #3 has the most beautiful tall pines on it. It has a soft pine floor great for sleeping but you could also hang your hammocks in this majestic site. Nearby are vault toilets or a little bit farther and there are showers. A water spigot is also close by. The river is near and you can see it but another group camp site is in the way. The sites are close so there is no privacy from the other groups. A risk if you’re doing family camp and your neighbors are on a weekend bender…
There are several campsites on and off the river but this one, campsite 21, has a lovely location that is directly on the river. Easy to access it even has a little beach to launch a kayak or fish from. This site has a raised tent pad but also space for another tent off the pad or your RV. This park is great for families as it has lots of rocks to climb and explore and the potholes are a wonder all ages enjoy.
Group campsite one is a lovely open site right on the St Croix River. This is a walk in site but fairly close to the parking area. Plenty of grassy space to play and set up several tents. If the 5 group sites it is probably the farthest from the vault toilets but still not that far away. The sites are all right next to each other so there is no privacy and no guarantees another group won’t disturb your group at night or vice versa. The park is not very large but what it offers is lovely. In the river side you’ll enjoy rocky trails and the famous potholes and in the hill side you’ll enjoy views from way up high.
The campground here is small (37 sites) but nicely situated along the St Croix River. It is also near Route 8 so you will hear road noise. Electric sites on inside of the loop; non with river view. Nice clean restrooms but the over the sink mirrors are for giants! (There is a full length one.) Not sure why they were placed so high! River Trail is nice and the potholes area fun to explore. Camp clubhouse with a stone fireplace and stocked with games and books was a nice addition.
This park has very nice hiking trails and the interpretive center has a nice video on glaciers. We camped along the river in a very spacious rv site. The only downfall is that the bathroom facilities were very dirty. I did report this to the office when checking out. We brought a 7 year old grandson and hiked many trails. The swimming area was closed because of E. coli from the many geese that were there.
