This is a very nice campground but it is divided in areas of deep woods and open areas, some sites have vast areas of grass around them and others have no grass and are inches from your neighbor. I recommend that you walk through the campground and see what is available before going to the office and throwing yourself on their mercy. We have stayed here before and like the close drive to Des Moines. This time it was a bit noisy do to a tournament at the trap range next door. We would stay here again.

Stayed 2 nights, we were going to stay 3 but due to a thunder storm there was no power, the power company truck was coming into the camp as we pulled out. Nice camp with friendly staff. Nice wooded campground, gravel roads and sites. Great signs to find the camp and easy on and off the highway. we would stay again. Good Sam discount.

Nice RV Park, clean and neat. We just stayed overnight. Did not use any of the facilities. It seems strange that we paid the maximum price because we were overnight only campers. Don’t think we would go back again, I felt taken advantage of. No discounts. We camped in our 5th wheel.

Very nice RV Park, clean and neat. We just stayed over night. Did not use any of the facilities. No one was in the office when we pulled in (about 4:00pm) but they had a self-serve set up and a marker board with the available sites on it, easy to use. We would go back again. They have Good Sam discount that I know of. They have easy access from I-10, with gas and fuel available. No noise from I-10.

We stayed at Eagle Cliff about two years ago (2006) and had the same experience with the rug, but ours was just a small doormat. So I went and asked why the big deal. The owner explained that I was there for a short time but the grass was there all year and their reasoning was to keep the grass green all year for all the campers. It only takes a couple of days with no sun on the grass and it turns yellow and then dies. So if one likes the green grass and not dirt I should help by picking up the mat each night, which I just put away and enjoyed the grass. By the way, they did move the tables in the unoccupied sites and set them on the fire rings. It’s all so we can have a beautiful campground to camp in, on real grass and not plastic covered dirt. I also asked why you had to walk up the hill to the bathrooms and showers and why the portable out houses instead of a restroom and showers close by in the lower camping area. That answer was very simple, because the lower area camping is in the flood plain of the Root River and you would not want all that stuff flushed into the river when it rises. It always helps to ask questions. We are from California where virtually all campgrounds are either dirt, gravel or paved so it was very refreshing to camp on real grass. All in all, the campground is four A all the way, We would gladly stay there again. We enjoyed the bike trail, Lanesboro and towns around, the fishing was great too, we even tried floating down the river, lots to do and see. We are retired and travel in our 5th wheel trailer, and have RV’d over 30 years. This is my first attempt at posting so I hope it was of help.
