Clearly marked hikes, beautiful views of the lake, the campground is cozy, but not too crowded. Bathroom house is a plus. Great picnic areas and fishing dock.
This was our last stop after a 7 day camping trip. I'm glad we end here; it was quiet and peaceful. There are plenty of trees to cool things down and the lake is in sight of all parts of the campground. Trees for hammocks and fire pit for s'mores. We enjoyed a hike around the small park to see the dam and wildflowers.
Site 29 was perfect - surrounded by trees and the last in the row.
TIP: do not stay near the bathroom. We didn't end up here but walking to the bathrooms at night makes it clear how bright the lights are. It would be annoying being close by.
We stayed here after visiting nearby Pipestone National Monument. With the exception of noise from the adjacent road and the occasional train thundering by, this small campground was very quiet and peaceful (we could even hear the birds twittering). Sites are generous in size but with limited privacy from foliage. Electric and non but only one water spigot near the bathrooms. Bathrooms were clean as was the shower, however, in the women’s shower, it was necessary to hold the button continuously for water flow (not the case for the men’s shower). We did not need reservations in mid-May, however, only downside is there was not much to do in the shoulder season when we were there. In summer you can rent kayaks for the small lake.
Nice and quit park with big campsite. Nice clean bathrooms. Camp hosts have firewood and ice also super friendly.
Loved the whole area around Split Rock Creek State Park. The campground was clean with good facilities and I loved the organized cart in operation! We chose site 5 for it's view of Lake Superior!
Each site had a fire pit, bear locker and picnic table, and sites are reservable in advance (see photos for instructions).
There's lots of hikes around the state park -- the most notable being those that let you catch a view of Split Rock Lighthouse. Worth the visit.
we had a great weekend at this park! Great hiking trails and water activities!
The small lake is nice with a nice beach
Or at least on the day I was there. Stayed overnight on a trip toward Minneapolis. I made this a stop so that I could collect a couple of geocaches in the State's Aquatic Challenge. I cached here and one other SP in the vicinity. I was in this park a year ago but, did not camp. It is a beautiful park, near water and generally quiet during the week. Electric sites, water and dump station available at entrance/exit.
Great views the lighthouse was so cool to see and the park was very well kept!!!!
Man, was it ever hot, but the campsite was absolutely gorgeous. Backpacking site #3 is situated privately and perfectly on the shore. Watch out for bugs! This campsite is a great water source and the lake shore is awesome for sitting and chilling after a day of hiking in the heat.
