St Croix State Park Campsite

Beautiful area, very clean and easy to get to. Clean facilities nice trails and boat launches. They ran out of fire wood so get there early! I'd def cons back here!

Dog town!

Beautiful river! Instead of paddling down the river I'd recommend turning this into a nice float/fishing trip. They provide nice maps depicting where off shore camping sites are. We spent 3 days and 2 nights in the river in our canoe. Caught great fish and camping off the rice banks was great. Once again so many people were paddling through, I'm grateful we got to take our time and see all the great views from our canoe in 3 days. We stayed at the dog town campsite, very secluded, brig your bug spray! Theses sites are first come first serve. River meets up SW with the St Croix and finished our travels there. Can't wait to go back!

Crowded...crowded

I wanted to give 2 out of 5 stars but felt that would be unfair since we only experienced one campsite area, South Nicollet area. Very crowded, basically all RV's with families, we were in ear shit of crying babies and dogs with small dog syndrome! If RV'ing is your thing, this might be 5 out of 5 but for tent camping it's incredibly loud and crowded. Virtually no privacy beside maybe a couple spots. I've heard Tennison bay campsites are more secluded? Maybe that's the way to go, so book in advance, and go for campsites in the outer circles of the areas! I'd recommend hitting up eagle trail early before it gets busy, very unique trail but bring ankle support lots of rocks. And rent a canoe/kayak lots of great views. I can def see coming back to PSP but only for a day pass. I'd pass on this one if you prefer tent camping.

Beautiful river!

Gorgeous area around the river! Campsites need to be booked in advance, but easy to get to. Tucked away pretty nicely between two harbors and grand marais, quiet area but attracts lots of hikers due to the beautiful river views! Def recommend staying here!

Very nice park!

We booked two nights in the "cart-in" campsites. I love the concept and the sites were well kept, close enough to facilities but far enough away and from other campers to get a nice quiet and private camping area. WARNING, book early, we had two book our two night in different "cart-in" sites so we had to move all our stuff into the new site couple hundred yards away, return the cart for our new cart specific for our site and so on. Very tiring process so I would only do "cart-in" again if we get consecutive nights at the same site, duh ik but point taken. I'd recommend "cart-in" sites closest to the shore, better views! But park in general is great with lots of hikes with varying degree of difficulties. Will def return! Oh and sites have bear lockers for food and scented items.

Convenience

Nice and clean campground. You'll need to make sure to book well in advance to reserve a spot here even though there are several hundred campsites in this spot. This is a convenient campground location close to park access and many many amenities! It can seem a bit crowded, but still caught a few glimpses of coyotes in the morning. I'd stay here again!

Don't miss this area!

Two medicine was recommended to us for a less "touristy" campground. We found an open campsite getting there after noon hour, but don't get there too late they'll eventually fill up. But great variety of trails, beautiful scenery. Saw a female moose the first day, we definitely kept our distance though! Campgrounds were very clean with nice amenities, make the east side of the park your next stop! Also, not a far drive back towards Many Glacier area! We'll be back.
