Great Wooded Campground

This campground is well maintained and a beautiful park within the woods. Great for hiking and kayaking/canoeing is near by.

Nice Weekend

Good site with plenty of room. The campground is big. Our site was very private for what a State Park is but not all are. Trails were awesome, but fishing from shore at the fishing peirs are not ideal. Didn't catch anything. Wood is for sale at the main entrance but not well marked or advertised.…

Solid campground with views of Lake Pepin

We stayed at Frontenac the first weekend of May, and lucked out with some really incredible weather! The park offers a number of really nice hiking trails along the bluffs of Lake Pepin, which we took full advantage of. There were a few boats on the water , which looked so appealing on our hot day…

Small and quaint with plenty of space

This campground is small and quaint...plenty of space without being too close to your neighbors.  Super easy to social distance here.

We visited in winter (February) and while there was snow on the ground, the spaces were kept plowed with easy access to the electric boxes.  We were in a…

Beautiful state park!

We stayed here last summer and it’s a great place to explore the region near the Mississippi River. Lots of amazing views, interactive signs and information that was perfect for our 4 year old. Close to the river and the town which was beautiful also!

Good shade and privacy

We stayed here for one night in August 2020 en route to black hills. Nice site(number 80), good shade and privacy between sites.  Some mosquitos in evening.

Perfect Stay in October

It was a perfect Autumn weekend for our stay. Very quiet, beautiful bike trails and close to the camp park with a gorgeous open field perfect for stargazing. It was great, highly recommend!

Nice escape

Perfect for a quick night away from the twin cities. Several small hikes to the bluffs right from the campground loop. Solid campground all around.

You simply cannot beat this view

Site 20 has an absolutely outstanding view of Lake Pepin and fall colors. The first and second loops have a mix of tent sites and electric sites, but it was quiet and peaceful. The electric sites seem small, so big rigs are deterred from setting up shop(and generators). The third and fourth loops…

Great hiking, no mosquitoes!

We stayed at Minneiska campground since Cedar Hills is under construction this year. It's a newer campground so the vegetation hasn't grown in fully yet - your neighbors are visible but there's good distance between sites so it wasn't a problem at all. The grounds themselves are really well-kept…

Prairie and bluff overlooking Lake Pepin

Cart-in sites are nice, though a little clustered. You can't see other sites like you would at a drive in site. We biked the nearby Cannon Valley Trail, which was great. 

There were a variety of woodpeckers working on the trees, which was very cool. 

There are train tracks near the park…

Great place to visit in the fall

We stayed at cart in site 4, which was the best of the 4 options. It’s at the end of a lookout trail that has amazing sunrise/sunset views. The hiking in this park is really great, with some amazing lookouts. Only downside is that the hum of I-90 can be heard at night.

Can’t get enough!

Just the views alone are worth every penny and you won’t be disappointed with the rigorous hiking!

Love this little gem!

The campsites are a little close but if you get one that is more secluded... it’s so nice. After our first time here, we’ll definitely be back! I love that it’s an hour drive from the cities. Not bad for a quiet getaway.
