Prestine Camping

Great site, very pretty lake. Great host. Easy to find, easy to navigate.


This is one of the nicest campgrounds. Right on the lake and in town. It has a boat launch, playground, splash pad, fish cleaning station, beach, bathrooms and showers. Some sites have full hookups. Amazing rates! Have 3 trips booked for this summer alone. Found campground randomly because of the state parks being closed due to Covid-19. Strongly recommend!!!

Amazing little find

I was needing a place to camp for the night and found this gem. The host was very kind and helpful. I stayed at a primitive tent site and easy to find and close to a bathroom. Very well maintained and has alot to do. I honestly have no cons about this campsite!!

Pleasant surprise

Passing through on our way to Glacier and needed a place to sleep for the night. There weren’t many reviews, but we took a chance. The campground supervisor was friendly and informative. Our site was a pull through grass site with water and electric. Bonus- it had a view of the lake! The campground has a playground, beach and splash pad. It was clean and well-kept. Our site was level and the length was long enough for us to stay hooked up for an early departure. We didn’t venture into town, but it definitely has the small town feel with a quaint downtown area with shops and restaurants. Would recommend this campground for those passing through or for a weekend.

Totally acceptable

We pulled in later and pick it based on a previous review. Easily found a spot by the lake and woke to a pleasant midwestern vista. There are 3 tiers of sites, most are hook up sites for larger RV's. But they do have primitive sites for $15. Which we couldn't find in the dark lol. Showers and toilets well maintained- good safe feeling spot to pull in when you are putting in the miles.

Family Camping and more

This is an impeccably maintained city-campground that shows the local are proud of “Our Town” and native son Sinclair Lewis, the hometown American author. Just blocks from the original Main Street, the campground is in the west end of the beautiful lakeside city park. Not only can you camp here in safety and comfort in a family-friendly setting (neighborly camping community, great playgrounds, fishing at your doorstep while but but a close walk to Main Street for unique shops snd cafes) but there are a host of community events that happen in the park, including concerts at a beautiful historic bandstand, art fair and similar events, and an annual 4-day festival in mid-July that celebrates Sauk Centre and all things Sinclair Lewis. Campground rates are extremely reasonable ($15 a night for tent sites, $30 a night for an RV site with full hookups) plus there are weekly, monthly, and seasonal rates. This is a great place for retired local snowbirds to stay in the summer, and a nice regional camping spot for families with kids or folks who would like a home base for day trips in the area including treks on the Lake Woebegone Trail. Check out this local website for activity ideas!

Overall, High marks for great maintainence, convenient location, and family oriented setting; however, though the lakeshore is pretty, the lake does have a problem with zebra musells, and many of the RV sites are located pretty close together.
