Beautiful park with nice hiking trails

We stayed in the Upper Campground in the site closest to the equestrian campground. The kids loved being able to meet & visit with the horses. 

The sites were a good size, but not much privacy or tree coverage in the area we stayed. There were a lot of trails to hike and a river/stream that they said you could wade/swim in, but we didn't go into it. 

There were a lot of playgrounds, and one really huge one the kids wanted to play on, but with COVID-19 still going strong, we didn't use it.

Beautiful wooded campground with lots of privacy

Pros:

* The campsites were heavily wooded with lots of privacy

* Very quiet -- didn't hear much noise from neighbors!

* Nice hiking trails

Cons:

* The beach was pretty unimpressive. The kiddos were grossed out by the water & didn't want to swim

Amazing campground close to the Twin Cities

Pros:

* A long, but pleasant, walk to a beautiful waterfall. Lots of streams and small pools of water, as well as large boulders, for the kids to explore.

* We didn't use the beach, but it looked nicer than most we've seen in WI state parks.

* The campgrounds were large and wooded.

Cons:

* Lots of bees this weekend, for some reason. Perhaps due to all the wildflowers blooming!

* Not as much privacy between sites as we'd like

* We saw quite a few younger party groups with louder music and drinking games
