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.
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 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.
Such a beautiful place and well maintained. Lots of hiking trails, a lake for fishing, playgrounds, and a man made lake for swimming. Two weird things: no alcohol and no dogs in the campground (yet they are allowed everywhere else in the park). We go here as often as we can
There are a variety of sites (RV,Group, and my personal favorite back packing), and some have great views.
Trails are great but extremely crowded on the weekend.
Still, it's great for how close it is to the cities.
We stayed 12 nights here in April to May. It was so peaceful and quiet. Saw deer almost every day. My toddler loved going to the campsite playground as well as going on a nice walk to a giant playground in the main part of the park! Just fyi, no sewer or water hook-up. Electric only. But they do have a dump station. And have to pay for parking a vehicle. $7 a day or $30 for the year, and you can go to other parks in the area with that pass.
primative yes, gruoup yes, then the individual sites too all have electricity
just east of st. paul - 2000 acres with 2 lakes and a swimming pond
clean, secluded sites. Nice park with lots to do; swimming, hiking, and bike trails. Primitive campgrounds are hike-in and offer a lot of privacy.
We stayed only one night at this campground during our summer travels. We did not explore much of the camping area. The site we had was plenty big enough. It was a back in site and kids had plenty of room to run and play in our site. This campground was the Modern area with electricity. Some sites had water and some had full hook ups. We knew we didn’t need much for one night so we just got one with electricity. Check in was easy and there was plenty of room to maneuver around. This campground is in a great location if you want the perks of a city. It’s quiet at night. We visited the Mall of America while we were here. It was about a 20 min drive from the campground. Access to the interstate was very easy.
