All of the seasonal spots have gravel pads. There are about 13 over-night spots at the end of the road that are on what you might want to call grass but really it's a bed of dandelions. The Wi-Fi isn't even detected in these spots. The highway noise is very noticeable. There are no fire pits at the sites. There is a thin, green stake about three feet tall at the end of each site which can make it tricky to maneuver into your site without hitting this stake. It appears that at one time the stakes had site numbers on them, but I only saw one in the whole campground that did have a number on it, so the stakes are pointless and dangerous. The dump station is in an awkward spot as if it's meant for dumping on the way in, so when you're done dumping you have to drive all the way back through the campground to turn around and get out. The positives were that the owners were very nice and helpful, and the rest rooms and showers were spotless.

We arrived on a Friday at 7:00pm to find that the office closes at 6:00pm. There is a long note on the front door with instructions to fill out a form, which they have in a mailbox, put it in a drop box, and come back the next day to register. There was no one to show us to our site and the sign at the office shows a straight ahead arrow to get to our site number, which is misleading, because you have to turn to the right immediately to get to it. If you go straight like the sign says, like we did (as did others in our group) you end up going down one road and coming back up another expecting you'll be able to get over to the road you need to be on, but unless you have a pop-up or very small trailer you won't be able to make the backward angle of the turn to get to the other set of roads. The connecting road is also gravel unlike the roads we were on which were paved, so it's easy to miss. Whether you missed it or couldn't attempt the turn, there is no place to turn around. We had to leave the campground, drive down the road to a residential neighborhood, and drive through the neighborhood to get turned around. The spots are narrow, a strip of grass in between them. It's large enough to play a lawn game but not by much. The picnic tables are tiny and can only seat 4. There are no fire pits at the sites. There is one communal fire pit. There are no shade trees at the site. There are no nature trails, no river or lake, I don't think there was even a play ground. There are no activities. It's really just a place to park your camper. Based on all of the above, I would not camp here if it were just us or just a few in our group. However, we were camping with a large club and thanks to the Rally Room they have, this campground worked out perfectly for that. We were able to use the Rally Room for our group meals, and the communal fire worked great for us. They also have good sized private restrooms, each with a shower. The restrooms were very clean.

A friend had reserved six sites for our group. She put our site under my husband's name. When I called to change our arrival date they would not let me. They would only allow me to change it if I were my husband, or if I knew the last four digits of my friend's credit card that was used to reserve the spots. I informed them the site was under my husband's name but they were completely inflexible and repeatedly told me that that is their policy. The sites are very close together. There is an asphalt slab for your camper and the picnic table, leaving a small stretch of grass between each site. There is not enough room on your site nor are there any open areas to play outdoor games. There are no large trees. There is free wi-fi, however it is so slow it is unusable. That was surprising since we stayed here in the fall when there are very few RV sites still open. There is water, electric and sewer at each site, and cable television as well. There is a lot of traffic going by each campsite all day and all night with the casino shuttle coming every 20 minutes plus maintenance and housekeeping vehicles. The traffic from the highway is also very noticeable.

This is a beautiful park reserve and campground. The camp sites are large and grassy. There are enough bushes and trees between them to make them private, but not so dense that you can't get to the site next to you if you're camping with others. Sites 25 and 26 offer a view of a pond. The restrooms were clean although the shower floors and walls are stained yellow. There are lots of trails, playgrounds, a swimming pond, and volleyball nets. Wi-fi and cell signals are good. There are two downfalls to this park though. One is, they don't allow pets in the camp ground. This prevented my brother and his family from joining the rest of us. The second downfall is that Oakdale Gun Club is right next door. The sound of gun shots all day non-stop, all weekend, ruined the tranquility of the park.

Our camping club, the MN Going Gophers, held their fall camp out at Two Rivers this year. We had 16 units in attendance so we got a group discount. While the nightly rate is on the pricey side in the summer, it's very reasonable before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. The staff was very accommodating and helpful with making the arrangements and while we were camping. An employee stopped by during our stay just to remind us that the pavilion was available if we wanted to use it and to see if we needed anything. The campground is beautiful with lush, green grass, large level sites, and well maintained buildings and landscaping. The lower campground is surrounded on three sides by the two rivers. Every site in the lower campground has a good view of the rivers and there are many sites right on the river shore. The upper campground does not have a view of the rivers but is closer to the office, pool, pavilion, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and it's a short walk down to the rivers. There was a small pine tree on our site that prevented us from backing in far enough to park our truck in front of the camper, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to open the awning. We were able to park the truck perpendicular to the camper though so it wasn't a problem. One unusual feature of this campground is that they have a security gate. You have to pay $20 for a gate card and register every vehicle with the office. You get the $20 back when you check out. This was a little inconvenient when a member of our group arrived early Saturday morning but couldn't get in the gate. Even when her husband, who had a gate card, went to let her in, an employee noticed and said she couldn't go in because her car wasn't registered with the office and the office didn't open until 9:00am. There is a large parking lot next to the office that she had to leave her car in.

This is primarily a seasonal campground, however, they do have 16 spots for daily rentals (8 for tents only and 8 for RVs). The daily tent spots are all on the lake shore. Two of the RV spots are also on the lake shore and the rest are close and still have a good view of the lake. The RV spots are a little tough to get into. The spots are all grassy and have good tree coverage for some shade. The restroom/shower building smelled musty but looked to be very clean. They have pay showers. There is a swimming beach. While the park itself appeared to be well maintained, some of the equipment was not. One of the picnic tables left spots all over my pants that will not wash out. The volleyball net is falling apart and sagging. The horse shoe pits aren't pits at all; they are just bent, rusted, loose poles sticking out of the grass, and the horse shoes are not all the same size. The playground is a combination of 1970's equipment and one modern "Tree House". Overall it is a nice place to camp with a great view if you're on the lake, but there aren't many amenities for the price.

This is a large, well maintained campground. The staff are friendly and helpful. They were flexible to accommodate our needs. They have a heated pool, playground, volleyball court and horse shoe pits. The saloon is a good option for one or more meals. On a very hot day it felt good to walk down to the creek and wade in it. Most of the campground is for seasonals. The spots for daily campers don't have large or many trees so there isn't much shade. Most of the daily spots are large, grassy, and level. Some of the picnic tables are in need of repair or replacement.

Very nice campground with good sized, grassy, level sites. Most sites are pull through. We had full hook ups for $39 a night. The pool was clean but is not heated. There is a large grass field, which is good for playing games, and a nature trail. They have horse shoes, ladder ball, and some other games you can check out for free. All of the staff members that we encountered were very friendly. They do have a rule about not leaving your camp fire unattended until it is fully out, and they enforce it! There are plenty of over night sites, but there are a lot of seasonals and they are scattered throughout the camp ground.

This campground has a lot of seasonals but still plenty of spots for overnights. It is very quiet and well maintained. The spots are quite large and grassy with good tree coverage. The bath house is kept very clean. There is a small swimming pond and a playground for children. It is very close to Lake Kegonsa State Park and LaFolette County Park. The town of Stoughton is just a few miles and has a lot of neat shops and bars/restaurants. Another nice thing about this campground compared to others in the area is that it does not have a two night minimum on weekends. We stayed here on a Friday night as a halfway point on a long trip. We liked it it so much we stayed here again on the way home.

This is a very nice, quiet campground with large, green grassy sites. You have to drive through the lower campground to get to the office, which is a little confusing. All of the sites in the upper campground are seasonal, as well as several in the lower campground. There are only small trees on the sites which wouldn't provide much shade. We couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work. There is a pool, game room, large playground, volleyball court, and horseshoes. The restrooms/showers attached to the main lodge building are finished nicely and are clean, but were not well maintained, as at least one was out of toilet paper. The showers in the adjacent building are large but still bare concrete. All showers require quarters to operate. I would have given this campground a ten if they didn't charge you to use the showers after you've already paid to camp there, and if the Wi-Fi worked.

This campground is a short drive from the Twin Cities. It has very large, grassy sites and lots of open spaces. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. They have organized activities such as Halloween Trick-or-treating in June, and karaoke at night. There is a volleyball court, basketball court, horseshoe pits and a playground. The pool is clean and the water is warm. The restroom and showers are updated and clean. There is a modern port-a-potty with flush toilets and a sink centrally located in the campground. When the river isn't too high they offer tubing and kayaking. The only sites on the river are tent sites and they are down a hill and tucked away. You cannot see the river from the rest of the campground. We would definitely stay here again.

This campground is right on Highway 71, so there is some traffic noise, but the campground is so peaceful you may not even notice. The spots are large and grassy with lots of shade. The owners are very friendly. The campground is surrounded by prairie land and lilac bushes. There are several sites that are perfect for tents; flat, grassy, and shady. The restrooms and showers were spotless all weekend. There is a playground. We would definitely stay here again.
Date of Stay: August, 2012
This campground has mostly seasonal sites but about 30 sites available for daily or weekend camping. About half of those sites are near the pool and the other half are in the back of the campground in an area that is nicely secluded with lots of tall pine trees for shade. The sites are quite large and grassy. There are lots of activities to do such as swimming, tubing and canoeing, paddleboat rental, fishing, golf, biking, hiking, volleyball and basketball. There is also a game room and snack bar by the pool. I would give this campground a 10 if they didn't have pay showers.

Other than some slight traffic noise from a distance, and an occasional train horn, this campground was very quiet. The sites are narrow but long, grassy, and partially or mostly shaded. They will let you park your camper anywhere on the site that you want to; you're only limited by the length of your electric cord or water hose if you're hooking up. There is a golf course, softball field, soccer field, horse shoe pits, volleyball courts, and a city pool with a water slide. You do have to pay $4 per person to use the pool. The restrooms were well maintained. The only thing we found odd about this campground is the layout. The sites are set up so that you will have the back of your camper to the back of one neighbors camper, but your door facing the door of the other neighbors camper. There is also only one fire pit between the two campers whose doors are facing each other. We camped in a large group of family and friends, so this wasn't a problem, but if you're camping alone it could be awkward.

This is a large, private campground with over 200 sites, many of which are seasonal. The sites are grassy and shaded. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. They aren't very wide so we were close to our neighbors. The restrooms were not maintained. The men room had a paper towel jam all day until we notified the owner. He fixed the paper towels, but still the restroom went without soap for over 24 hours. The floors were muddy and did not get mopped all weekend. There was a campground employee mowing the lawn on Sunday morning for about an hour, which was quite noisy. The owner left the office for a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon, leaving a group of four kids, about age 12, in charge behind the desk. Unfortunately the kids did not know much about running the campground and weren't able to answer any of our questions.
