Campsite was nice, pretty private with trees and it was near a walking trail. There is a lot to do in this country park reserve: hiking, walking, horseback riding, playgrounds, swimming, fishing, etc! There is a HUGE area for hiking, it's so large that you rarely come across another person during your hike. It varies from prairie to wooded area. The lake is good for fishing, and there is a pool for children next to a playground.
Camped here while visiting the Twin Cities for a weekend and saved a ton of money opposed to staying in a hotel. Nice showers and average camp sites. We will be staying here again next time we visit.
I went here for our annual church picnic for years. We camped only a couple times, but it was a nice experience. Huge campground, at least much bigger than I expected! Sites are rather large and there is a decent amount of space between sites. I checked out one of the nature programs and it was very informative and enjoyable. The hiking is wonderful. This park is so unique because it’s definitely a nature experience but is so close to the suburbs and downtown St Paul.
