This park has a lot of camping spaces but privacy within the campground is limited. It’s located right off I94 just outside of Barnesville. Across the highway is a softball field and play area that overlooks Whiskey Creek. The Whiskey Creek area provides a very pretty view with a low waterfall and small walking bridge. Many of the RV sites in the campground have full hookups and there is a line of sites on the north side that are tent-only sites. This would be a great spot to have a family reunion if you have a family of campers!
Lindenwood Park is a very nice campground with an abundance of shelters, children’s play areas, and walking/hiking trails. Campers have two areas for parking RVs with both an upper & lower (riverside) rv Park. There is some noise overflow from the Interstate but the surroundings are tranquil and while you are there, it makes it hard to believe you are still in town. The park road is currently undergoing some renovations but the grounds and area are very well maintained.
There are quite a few RV sites at Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen and they offer full hookups! We stayed at site 19, shown in the photo. Although the sites are close together, there were quite a few empty sites so we felt like it was semi-private. The cost was about $25 per night so definitely a great deal for full hookups. There is a picnic table at each site and the RV park is pet friendly. We spent a lot of our time in the casino while we were here so our time in the camper was limited but while we slept, we didn't here much noise.
The campground has either electric or water or just electric sites for RVs and there are also tent-only sites. The tent sites are located across from and adjacent to the RV sites. The RV sites are pretty close together but, we were there in the middle of the summer and there were a couple of open tent sites on one side of us. The campground is pet friendly and the management is friendly. The campground is close to Itasca State Park as well. Others have mentioned that getting in to the campsites near the circle drive area (closest to the lake parking lot) are a little difficult to get into & this is very true. We have an 8x17 Ice Castle/RV that we pull behind the truck and backing into our spot without disturbing other campers was not an easy task. The circle drive is right where the last couple of RV sites are sitting and there is a tree at the point of the circle drive so you have to avoid the tree and maneuver around it when backing in. The sites that are closer to the entrance & the playground that do not have a good view of the lake are easier to get in to. We used the dump station which is nicely situated on a slope just outside the entrance so it's easy to completely pump out a tank that might sit lower on your unit. There was a picnic table and campfire ring at each site.
I recommend the tour of the Apostle Islands to anyone visiting Bayfield, WI and the views at Devil’s Island are indescribable. The jagged beauty of the rocks that have been naturally edged by the rugged waters and the cool blue-green hue of the rippling water under the cave hoods is breathtaking. We visited during a windier time which caused white foam to splash on the rocks and since our tour was in the evening, the sun played off the foam. The photos and videos I uploaded don’t do justice to how beautiful and almost a little scary the island is.
When we first pulled into the campground, we were somewhat concerned - everyone seemed to be parked on top of each other but after we backed in & got settled in, we were pleasantly surprised. The sites are spacious. We were along the wood side and had a lot of space to roam & it felt private. There is nice soft sand for you to walk on, a nice clean camping area, picnic table, full hookups and a campfire ring. The neighbors to the north of us were very friendly & the campground was relatively quiet. We would stay here again.
We are KOA members (who stay at a lot of KOAs) - our 1st visit at this Cloquet KOA was Sept 2020:
The staff were friendly. One staff drove a cart right to our campsite and helped us determine the best way to back in our RV for the most privacy. We needed a couple of items for our RV and the store had everything we needed including a hose adapter, ketchup, buns, dog treats & s’mores fixings. The camp is close to Duluth but still far enough away to get you completely out of the city and, while exploring, we came across Jay Cook State Park (only about 15 min away) which is beautiful!! The camp was relatively quiet. We were about 20 feet from another campsite on one side and 50 feet on the other. There are a lot of trees and wooded areas so our site felt semi-private. Our Pomeranian, who loves to camp, loved the woods!! Across from us were two camping cabins filled with 20 year olds celebrating a 21st birthday but the staff drove through often and we never heard noise. This KOA offers full hookups in some parts of the campground but our site was only water/electric so they offered a complimentary pump-out with a mobile truck during our stay. We will stay here again!
This resort is located on Stalker Lake, outside of Dalton MN in Ottertail County. The resort has 4 smaller cabins for rent ranging from 3 nights for $500 to 3 nights for $790. There is a minimum of 3 nights for the cabins that are equipped with a bathroom & kitchen. The cabins are not modern, furnishings are a bit outdated, but provide a clean getaway on a nice fishing lake. Tent camping is $20 per night and RV/Campers are $50 per night with electric, water and sewer hookups.
Chippewa County Park offers 15 overnight camping spots with a 2 night minimum for $30 each night. Each site has a fire ring & picnic table and sites 7-12 have lake views which are beautiful. Sites are 20/30/50 amp and spacious but pretty open to other sites. There is a lot of tree coverage within the park so shade is in abundance.
Delagoon Campground is located within Delagoon Park which is on the outskirts of Fergus Falls, the County seat of Ottertail County. The campground has 22 campsites with 14 being camper/tent sites with water & 20/30 electricity. The campsites are gravel back-in with no separation between sites so privacy is limited. The tent-only sites are against a line of trees but are still open to other campers. There are fire rings but no picnic tables so bring your camping chairs. The fishing pier is large and handicap accessible. There are non-plumbed but modern and clean restrooms within the park. The campground gets used a lot by local residents looking for a quick weekend getaway but there are usually several open spots available that are low in cost ($10 for tent-only & $20 for hookup sites). Registration is first come first serve via a self serve kiosk at the campground entrance. The noise level within the campground can be pretty high on weekends. There are no posted quiet times or on-site staff who manage the campground (it is managed by the Fergus Falls Park & Rec Dept) although the local police drive through frequently when the campground is inhabited.
Delagoon is the City Park & Camping area on the outskirt of Fergus Falls, the County seat of Ottertail County. The campground is comprised of about 20 campsites with several designated for tent or RV and includes 20/30 amp & water hookups. The other sites on the west side when you enter are tent-only sites with no electricity but there is running water supply outside the bathrooms located within the campground. The sites are spacious but there are no trees separating campsites so privacy is minimal, although the views are beautiful. The bathrooms within the campground and near the playground are modern but not plumbed. Hand sanitizer is refilled often but you may want to bring your own tp in case it has been used or taken. Pebble Lake, the lake adjacent to the campground is accessible by a road to a walking area for shoreline fishing or a road within the camping area leads to a fishing pier, usually installed by May 1. Softball and soccer teams play most days of the week in the summer. There are four softball fields and one soccer field.
