Awesome!

Awesome campground with friendly knowledgeable staff. Fun hiking trails and good lake.

Good place to stay

Stayed here over the 4th of July, busy but good campground! Clean bathrooms and close to Duluth. Lots of fun things to do

Good lake

Good lake, had a great swimming beach. Our campsite wasn't private but there are some that are surrounded by trees and private. Would love to come back to this state park

Nice

It was a nice campground with mostly private and large sites. Close to a biking trail and close to Duluth. Will definitely be staying here again!

Good views

Campground was great, had beautiful views and very large sites. Lots of trees and couldn't even see the neighbors! Would definitely return

Good park

Fun park, large private campsites. Fun hiking with some challenging trails!

County park

Fun, average county park. On a nice lake that is good for swimming. Has volleyball nets and room for lawn games

Fun

Located on Green Lake, it's a fun campground with a good swimming beach and a great lake to spend the day on! Great fishing and wildlife.

Small

Split rock is a smaller park, but since it's right on the lake there are amazing views and things to do! We walked around the lighthouse and took our kayaks on the lake since it was a warm, calm day. We kayaked around the island you can see from the shoreline which was very cool. I've visited here during every season and it's beautiful at every season!

Another favorite

Awesome campground and state park all around. The campsites are surrounded by trees so they are very private and quiet. Hiking along the St Louis river is very cool, a lot of rocks to climb and places to wade and swim in the river. Hiking here could never get old!

Fun for the day

Fun day trip, visited in February on a warmer winter day. Lots of room for the dog to run around and good views of the river! Would be fun for a picnic in the summer and to play lawn games.

Fun park!

I've stayed in both campgrounds here. The campground closest to the lake isn't very private but the sites are spacious. Has a clean bathroom for showering. There are a lot of hiking and biking trails and you will see many different kinds of birds and wildlife. Lake Andrew is a big and clean lake with a swimming beach, canoe rentals, and a fishing pier. It's located close to the small town of new London which is fun to wander through. I would recommend the hike to mount Tom to check out that view!

Favorites!

Favorites!

One of my favorite state parks. The campground is large with tons of trees making it very private. Make sure to keep your tent/camper door shut, I had a chipmunk come inside the camper and join me for a nap :) the hiking here is GREAT, a lot of cool trails and waterfalls to see. Along lake Superior there are a lot of cliffs to take in the view of the great lakes and a great spot for a picnic. I've been here in the summer and spring and both are awesome

Awesome!

Our campsite was a little cramped, the canopy from the camper was almost directly over the fire pit, but it was surrounded by trees and very private and quiet! The bathroom and showers were really nice. This park has miles and miles of great hiking and biking trails. We biked from the campground to Lake Clayton and even saw a bear on our ride! We rented canoes from the park and did the four hour canoe ride down the st Croix river which was super fun, I definitely recommend doing that. We also hiked along the kettle river to where it meets with the st Croix river and that was a cool hike

Private campsites

The campground was very nice. The sites are private, couldn't see any neighbors as there are a lot of trees. The park rangers were very helpful and informative. The facilities were nice and we'll kept. We drove about fifteen minutes to get to a hiking spot along the St Croix river, worth the drive. There weren't many people on the trail and it was very pretty.

Open campground

The campground was pretty open, but it was a fun place. There is a swimming pond close to the campground and some open area to play lawn games. Would go back here!

Good location

We camped here in the summer for one night, our campsite was wooded and private but other sites didn't have many trees and were very open. I have hiked here in the winter and it was very pretty. They groom some of the trails in the winter for better hiking. It was very quiet and a fun hike along the St Croix river, would love to hike here in the summer.

Fun state park!

The campground was very big and nice. It had good, clean modern bathrooms and showers. Our campsite wasn't far from hiking and biking trails. We biked to the mouth of the Mississippi River which was super cool to see. The interpretive center had a lot of animals and was informative.

Fun hiking

We stayed in a backpacking site, was very private and a fun hike to our site. It's along the St. Croix river so be sure to bring bug spray! The trails are fun to hike on, although you can tell a lot of people hike on them. We saw a lot of different birds and a couple different kinds of turtles while we were there! We have gone there during the summer, winter and fall and it is beautiful during all three seasons, especially the fall.

Lots to do!

Campsite was nice, pretty private with trees and it was near a walking trail. There is a lot to do in this country park reserve: hiking, walking, horseback riding, playgrounds, swimming, fishing, etc! There is a HUGE area for hiking, it's so large that you rarely come across another person during your hike. It varies from prairie to wooded area. The lake is good for fishing, and there is a pool for children next to a playground.
