We were very impressed with how well the grounds were maintained. One of the best we had seen. We had a back in with full hookups and a fire ring. The park is beautiful and there's a great bike path that goes all the way to the zoo. Downtown Minneapolis is 20-30 min drive away. My only complaint was the fire rings and the neighbor's sewage hookup is close.
Lebanon hills has everything for the family. Schultz Beach for summer fun. Professional built mtn bike trails for adventure. Camping in Minnesota suburbs. Miles of hiking, horseback riding, cross country ski trails. . perfect for my family's weekend Stay-cation
This is one of the few places that you can camp in twin cities metro. Both car and RV camping is allowed. Some of the tent sites do have power as well. Bathrooms and Showers are centrally located. Firewood is available for purchase. The camp grounds are located near the Lebanon Hills mountain biking area and miles of day hiking trails. Camping is only permitted in this area and it's not open in the winter.
An awesome place for a quick day's hike. There is plenty to do here, camping also available here
Beautiful area. We had to leave the campground and drive around to other areas to reach beaches and lakes. Kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards are available to rent at first come first served at only specified lakes. Some campsites are more open than others. Some are even up on hills. Trails are great as well, I unfortunately didn't leave enough time to do them all.
Nice little lake to kayak on.
Electric, non electric, and rv sites. some hiking. Very big park overall. a couple of lakes, one of which has more hiking, and you can swim, rent paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes. I bring my own kayak there all the time. Another lake has a fishing pier/dock.
We live about 15 mins. away from this campground. We stayed in the East Loop which is for smaller RVs and tents. it has electricity but no water hookups, however there are water pumps. We stayed at site 72 which is at the beginning of the loop. This site isn’t as secluded by trees as the other sites and we weren’t able to position our pop up to face into the camping spot which was a little bit of a downer since this spot is on the inner loop. Our spot was spacious, and close to the bathrooms and play area. The play area was really nice and looked brand new. Our girls loved making new friends to play with. We liked that we weren’t super close to any campers unlike most RV spots are nowadays. We will be back to explore other parts of the campground. We did get to check out part of one of the many hiking paths.
After picking up our new (to us) teardrop trailer in Minneapolis on a Monday, we wanted to stay someplace local just to test everything out. Thankfully Lebanon Hills had a space available, and from the moment we arrived, we knew we made a good call.
The campground staff checked us in quickly, and gave us the rundown on all the amenities. We headed to our spot, which backed up to a beautiful wooded area, with plenty of grass to walk our wondermutt. Just from driving/walking around, you can tell a lot of thought went into planning this park. The sites are nice and level, with plenty of space between each one. This feels very much like a nice state park.
The site had a nice picnic table, which we used to help sort out our new (to us) trailer storage. We didn’t use the fire ring, but it would have made for a nice campfire. We had full hookups, even though we only needed water and electric.
The bathrooms were among some of the nicest I’ve used at a campground. The shower stall was big enough for a meaty human like myself to shower comfortably. And you can tell the staff takes good care of the facilities.
We met some nice folks staying around us, and got the feeling that many of them return each year, and for as much of the summer as they can.
Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer to explore what this beautiful park has to offer. If we’re ever in the area again, we’ll spend some time at Lebanon Hills.
We had a great time at Lebanon Hills Campground. This is a great campground for families. We camped in the East Loop and were close to the bathrooms & playground. Our camp site was very private/secluded. The kids enjoyed playing in the woods by our site, which is what camping is all about! The park system is huge and has many hiking trails and places to go. Not all are in walking distance from the campground, like the beach. We will be coming back!!
