Great place with Unique amenities.

They have a home made lake that has a sand bottom but it has chlorine like a pool so no weeds. Great for swimming.

Camel Trek - Night 3

Stayed here due to its proximity to Minneapolis airport…had an early flight the next morning. Really convenient location. No problems. Facilities were really well maintained. We didn’t see the sites in daylight hours but appreciated the cleanliness of the park. We stayed the last night of their camping season and were able to utilize water and electric hookups.

High end State Park, but better

Top of the line campground. Surprisingly well spaced sites, facilities modern and clean. Trees galore. Clearly the locals use this park a lot. Strongly recommend

Really one of the best places for small families

Lovely back in lots, beautiful in fall. 2 playgrounds, one massive! Lots of trails, wildlife and close to the drive in movie theater. Quiet and peaceful with amenities we will be back to enjoy in the summer.

Great place

Kids loved it. They have very nice private sites with good tree coverage,awesome trails, little playgrounds and one giant playground, and a fishing pier the kids loved.

Fantastic and Clean

Stayed two nights with four kiddos (ages 4-13) and had a great time. Nice, clean, and private campsites tucked into trees. We stayed in the Modern Campground and had water (non drinking) and electric at our site. There was a very nice playground for the kids to hang out at, as well as a nice bathroom with flushing toilets and showers for free. On the same property are fishing spots, hiking paths, biking paths and a GIANT playground. The swimming pond was closed due to Covid, so we drove about 30mins to get to Square Lake Beach to go swimming. Would stay again for sure. Mosquitos were KILLER as soon as it got dark, no matter how much bug spray you use!

Great campground with private sites

Great campground with new playground and lots of families. Sites are spacious and have privacy. We were in site 70. It had more space on the opposite side of our door which was a tad annoying but very nice campsite with lots of nearby paved trails. Will be coming again!

Awesome place to camp!

Used the walk in sites. Very quiet and private. Took my 4 year old son and he loved it. Truly felt like you where going off into the middle of no where, but was close to everything Incase something happened or my son had to tap out. Ended up being a great trip.

Great escape but still in the twin cities!

We love coming here as once you are inside the park it feels like you are out far but so close to home! We can come here for a quick hike or run or spend more time with the kids enjoying the trails. Never camped here but I’ve seen many people here!

Great sites, affordable and not too crowded

Great campground, sites are spacious and spread out, electric hookups at all sites, swim pond is great for kids, and other amenities like an archery range and hiking trails are fantastic for kids.
