We stayed here two years ago and were delighted to return to this wonderful campground. Every site is a winner. There is not a bad site here. Few sites have 50 amp service but it is available. Free Wi-Fi is now available at the gift shop. All sites are spacious and well manicured. There are nice hiking trails, craft shops, a museum and a carillon. Our biggest regret was that we could only stay three days. Will definitely return.

This park is a gem. If you value privacy and the remote feel of a campground you will love this park. It offers hiking and bike trails, windsurfing, rentals, beach access. I rated this a 9 instead of a 10 as we camped here in a 35 foot motorhome and we towed a car. We were in site 82 and it was a large circular site, sandy, well groomed, with picnic bench and fire ring. Surrounded by lush vegetation. The entry was narrow and we could not open our awning. The entry roads into the various loops are over-grown and we could not enter without scratching the top of our motorhome (12 ft 7 inches). We would not camp here again for that reason. The park is well suited to smaller campers, trailers and tents.

This campground is an excellent overnight stop if you are traveling on I-75. It is convenient and it offers large, level, open, grassy sites in an area surrounded by trees. The manager/owner is efficient and pleasant. They keep an immaculate park and the rates are reasonable. Definitely a find!

This park is way overpriced for what it offers. We camped here overnight on our way to Florida and it is adequate for an overnight stay. It is trashy and has many permanent residents. It is close to the highway and we found that convenient.

The rate reflects monthly discount. Electricity was an additional charge. We stayed here for two months and were delighted with the place. We had some trepidation in staying here as it is clearly a rather remote location. Shopping is limited in the immediate area but there is a Wal-Mart within three miles. We found the distance from a major city to not be an issue though as there were so many activities at the resort that we hated to leave in case we missed something! Pickle ball and golf are the two most popular activities with games scheduled every day for both. Shuffleboard was popular during our second month there. There was a dinner or potluck every week and games each night of the week. This is a very social and friendly RV resort, definitely the friendliest we have ever encountered. The sites are deeded lots but many have yet to be sold and are available for rent. Landscaping is attractive and the sites are fairly spacious with concrete slabs for the vehicles. There was no patio area which meant we tracked in grass regularly. The RV resort could benefit from cable hookups and improved Wi-Fi. It was free but only one person could be logged in at a time. Overall though this was an excellent place to stay and we have made reservations to return next winter.

This was our fourth visit to this park and we were disappointed this time to find it over-crowded and severely congested. It was Columbus Day weekend and was fall break for many children. Many sites had several vehicles, children's bicycles were strewn around campsites and it was difficult to get out of your campsite without driving over someone else's bike, grill or toy. We were in B ring with sewer hookup and those sites are very close to each other. We'd never pick that location again. The campground office is open from 8-4, which is ridiculously early closing. I was told it was because of state cut-backs. Interestingly there were two RVs parked outside the gate all night waiting for the office to open. It made me wonder that the paycheck to keep the office open extra hours could have easily been met by the two RVs who could not get in. There is a very limited store which of course is also not open at the time campers want to stock up on provisions. The playground needs an update but the children still enjoyed it. Campsites are not level. We have had three other sites in this park and have yet to find a site where we did not have to use jacks and still have wheels off the ground. Interior roads are narrow and are bi-directional but I never saw confrontation because of it. Overall a disappointing experience at a park in a beautiful location.

Good Sam rate. Very nice, wide pull-through site. Graveled, a few were concrete. Large clean swimming pool. Good WiFi. Nothing to remark particularly about the campground but it lacked nothing. It is very well taken care of. Office staff were very efficient and friendly. Nice location for I-80 access, about 3 miles from I-39.

I was rather disappointed with this campground. It certainly doesn't rate as highly as Trailer Life and Woodall's believe. Yes, the entrance is manicured and inviting but the sites themselves are narrow and poorly cared for. We were in two different sites and both were far from level and we had wheels off the ground. It was impossible to get level with jacks. The sites were narrow and needed gravel so that you automatically stepped onto grass when you exited the motorhome. The swimming pool was nice during the week when the children were not there. At the weekend the campground was tightly packed with laundry strewn all over. Quite noisy. Good location for interstate and casino access. WiFi was consistently good.

This campground is very pleasant but very basic. The grounds are beautifully maintained, rolling lawn and evergreens. The site was gravel and wasn't level. We were unable to extend our awning because of a tree in the way. It's a peaceful place to stay for couples. There are no amenities for children: no pool or playground. It is about 2.5 miles out of town. We were able to get WiFi at the public library. Television was limited to two channels. A bit pricey for what you get.

This "campground" is actually a parking lot at a marina, so no trees in sight. Had a level, black-top site with hookups well placed. Had a very strong WiFi signal; efficient and pleasant office staff. The campground offers no amenities but is well located, less than half a mile from the Canal Park shopping and restaurant district so you can walk across the aerial bridge and access much of the tourist stuff, or walk into downtown Duluth. Getting in and out of sites can be difficult because of congestion.

We used this as an overnight stop. Sites have FHUs and they are correctly placed. Shuttle service to the casino and restaurants. Very efficient check-in. The site was almost level. WiFi is rather slow. It is well-priced for what you get. Inexpensive restaurant food and casino card for $5 gambling per person. There was a major storm while we were here and some sites flooded. This campground gets high ratings from Trailer Life and Woodall's. I have only given it an 8 as the WiFi is weak and there was a noisy party until 11:30 p.m. and security did not break it up, even though they tour the campground regularly. Campers were a mix of seniors and families so a late party seemed inappropriate.

This municipal campground has a mile of shoreline with pebble beaches and rocky overlooks. It's a beautiful location. Many of the FHU sites are close together. We were unable to get a FHU site and found we had more space between sites. The major problem was it was not possible to get level even with jacks and we ended up with our front wheels off the ground. We noticed this was a common problem. You can walk into town from the campground; there is also a municipal swimming pool at the entrance to the campground and it has adult hours. It is Olympic size. Because this is such a large campground, it is very impersonal. They run on full all summer so you need reservations. We would stay here again as the location is great.

Disappointing choice overall. The campground is good for kids with a nice playground, small pool, and trout pond. Many activities that would appeal to children. The campground is set in a pleasant valley and has many trees. It is close to a major highway which made it rather noisy even at night. Our grassy site is far from level and required four blocks under one tire, and several other blocks under the others to become level. Wi-fi is spotty when the campground is full. Electrical failure, too, but don't know why. Marked this campground down as sites are not level and are not well spaced. Also grassy sites and long entry road is compacted dirt. Adult swim hours at 9 p.m. for a half hour but the water is an unattractive color!

Rate was for electric and water only. When we arrived someone was still in our site so we had to take a site without FHU, as we had requested. The owner was very gracious though and set us up with a water line and we managed quite well. Our site had recently been graded but most did not look level. Can use slides but need to be careful of trees. Basic campground in a very good location. Boise paper plant worth a visit and the Voyageurs National Park tours are lovely. Would definitely stay here again.

This park has a rural setting in an urban environment. There is a lake and lots of lush vegetation around the campsites. One mile from the Minnesota Zoo, about ten miles from Mall of America. Sites were not totally level and some had hookups in rather strange places, which makes this a 9 and not a 10. Very good WiFi. Efficient and friendly office staff. Would love to have stayed longer.
