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.

This is a good campground for a one night stay over on your way to someplace else. Other than hiking, there is nothing to do here. There is not an office or a store. You can't buy firewood or ice. There are no water hookups. There are few if any shade trees at the camp sites. Each of the three campgrounds has a small playground, but they are far away from the camp site areas. The restrooms are clean but are very rustic and run down.

We were pleasantly surprised with this campground. It is a beautiful area and well maintained. The pool was sparkling clean and the water was warm. There is a nice play ground. If the weather cooperates, this is the perfect spot for viewing the sun set over the fields behind the campground. The owners were very friendly.
Date of Stay: June, 2010
The owners are friendly and helpful. The park is well maintained. The rest rooms were clean, but the women's showers are very low so if you're over 5' tall you'll have to squat or lean to get your hair wet. The campground is located about three miles outside of town through some very steep and windy roads. Contrary to a previous review, the Eureka Springs trolley does not stop here.

This campground offers large, grassy, level sites with good shade. The grounds are well maintained. They have a large recreation building and a nice playground. There is a river for fishing in, but it was not clean enough to swim in. The owners are wonderfully friendly and the price is very reasonable. The only drawback was the constant hum of traffic from the nearby (but not visible) highway.

The sites in the lower campground are very large, well shaded, and level. Many of them are right on the river. The grounds are very well maintained. This campground is on the expensive side at $43 a weekend night. They do a few train rides for the little kids, and have a nice playground, but there were no organized activities. They have a new office/recreation building which has games of all kinds and big screen TVs. There is a volleyball court and soccer field. Mini-golf is available for $2.50. The bathrooms were not cleaned all evening while the floors were muddy. The only showers are a long walk up a steep hill, quite far from most of the sites. There are railroad tracks nearby, so you can hear the train whistle blowing numerous times throughout the day and night. Despite the opportunities for improvement, the view from the waterfront sites is so beautiful that it's easy to overlook these minor flaws. This was our 4th stay here in four years.

This is a very nice campground. It is spread out well, and most of the sites have shade except for the odd numbered sites 59-77 along the road. Those sites only have early morning shade, and a few of them are too small for lawn games. The biggest problem we encountered here is that they close both restroom buildings from 9:00am - 11:00am for cleaning. We couldn't figure out why they would close both buildings at the same time, and why during peak showering time? This did cause us some stress since we do not have a toilet in our pop-up camper. This appears to be the only time the restrooms are cleaned because most of the time, the womens restroom had hair and puddles all over the sinks and countertops and the floors were muddy. Other than that, we enjoyed the peace and quiet, the animals in the petting zoo, and the convenience of being close to stores. The staff was also friendly.

This is a beautiful, well maintained campground. The owners have put a great deal of effort into planting trees (which are now large) and landscaping the grounds. The restrooms are kept meticulously clean throughout the day. The owners are very involved and friendly, as is all the staff. We spent a lot of time at the pool and on the jumping pillow, which was a lot of fun, even for adults. The kids enjoyed the wagon ride, crafts, and flashlight candy hunt. We would definitely stay here again.
Date of Stay: June, 2008
This campground is well maintained. The sites are grassy and there are a lot of trees. There are some sites that share a gravel pad, so the two campers would be parked right next to each other. There are also plenty of larger, more private sites. The restrooms and showers are cleaned frequently. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Though you can't see the highway or train tracks, there is slight highway noise, and the train whistle goes off frequently throughout the day and night. There are no walking trails, and no planned activities. We may stay again for a relaxing adult weekend, but probably not with the kids.
