This park has many RV sites but 95% are seasonal. These sites are jam in the woods and are, for the most part, a mess. We were there on a Sunday night so the over night sites were all empty. If they would not have been I would not have gotten into our site. I ended up parking across three sites. The clean restrooms are in the main building and is quite a hike from our site. Many low tree branches! New restaurant and bar and many activities for the seasonal folks.

Older area of the park has very small and close together sites. New area has bigger, more open sites but are mostly filled with seasonal trailers. We were in the older part of the park and had trouble get into our site because of tree branches. Several of their trees need to be trim up.

I can not say much more than has all ready been said in other reviews. Staff was friendly and helpful. The roads are gravel, the sites are rock and gravel and there is little or no grass. Our site had a level pad for the trailer wheels but rest of site was sloped. It was 18 inches to the first step on on trailer. Wi-Fi is available only near the office and it was very slow. Lots of nice stores nearby including a Walmart. Not sorry we stayed here but will not return.

This campground is owned by the city of Menagha, MN and is right on the south edge of town. Nice campground with lots of potential, underlining potential! Sites are spacious but many are unusable for a trailer like ours until they do some tree trimming. Even the trees on the roads need trimming. A mess around the fire pit and it was full of ashes. Also, someone had cleaned fish on our picnic table. They are in the process of building a new bath house and it looks to be a very nice one. Playground in park and a public swimming beach 1/4 mile away. Dump station in park has a $5 fee.

Great park! Mostly seasonal but have 30 overnight sites. We enjoy biking and this park is located right on the paved Heartland bike trail. Second time here for us with the grand kids. Four mile bike ride to Walker for ice cream.

As others have said, a well run campground with lots for the kids to do. We really enjoyed the weekend and did go tubing in the Platte River with our grandkids (extra charge of course). There were only three shower stalls for the 191 sites but they seem to make it work. With only one shower house, it is a long walk for most of the sites. The weekend we were here, the flies were more than bad. At first I thought it was just our site, but noticed others were fighting them too. We were camped near a new corn field, and I wondered if that had something to do with all the flies.

This park has two campgrounds. Both are in the woods with one next to the lake and the other across the road. We stay in the one next to the lake. Nice area but most of the campground is hilly and I noticed that leveling was a problem for some including us. Park has two miles of paved bike trails which is also in the hills. There is access to the Glacial Lakes Bike Trail but it is five miles from the park via a bike lane on a county road. Clean restrooms and showers. The rate I quoted was for non-electric. Nice park, would stay again.

This Minnesota Sate Park is located 6 miles north of town on the north shore of Lake Bemidji. We stayed here on a weekend in mid September and had the place to ourselves. The shower and restroom building looked look like it was brand new. The campground is walking distance to the lake. There is also access to the Paul Bunyan state bike trail. There is a paved bike trail around the entire lake and you can get to town by bike. Overall good experience, nice campground.

Located on the corner of MN highways 34 and 371, this small park is owned and managed by the American next door. There are no restrooms or showers on the grounds but there is one unisex bathroom/shower in the pool area of the motel. Location is almost downtown Walker and all shops are within walking distance. Bike trail is across the highway. Excellent cable TV and Wi-Fi. Location is what gives this park a six.

Very nice park with excellent playgrounds and bike trails throughout the park and along the river, but the camp grounds leave something to be desired. When we were here it rained and most sites were muddy with standing water. The sites in campground A are very small and if you have a slide it leaves enough room for a picnic table between you and your neighbor. Sites along river in campground B seen to be a bit larger, but are up hill and leveling was a noticeable problem. Showers are in a new building but there are only three (mens) showers for the 58 campsites. Very close to interstate with lots of highway noise. I would say it is a very nice park to visit, but will stay somewhere else next time.

This is a small campground with no showers. The reason I rate it a seven is because of it's location. It is located in the town of Dorset and on the Heartland bike trail. Dorset is a small tourist town with several small shops and restaurants that are open only during the summer. All are within walking distance from the campground. Best to stay during the week because the restaurants are very busy on the weekends. The bike trail is paved and offers you access to literally hundreds of miles of Minnesota bike trails. We make this trip at least twice a summer.

I agree with the first posting here that this is a very nice and spacious campground with a friendly staff. Would like to add that they also provide tubing and canoeing on the Rum River. The one down side that we saw was the lack of bathrooms and showers. The campground has 115 RV sites and 20+ tent sites. For this both the men's and women's bathroom has two showers and three stools. Two more stools were located out in the park. I found myself standing in line every morning. My wife said one of the stools in her bathroom was out of order and the bench in one shower was broken and appeared to have been broken for some time. The men's showers had no benches and only one clothes hook that fell on the floor when I used it.

A primitive campground with 22 tent sites and 14 hook-up sites on a 196 acres complex complete with boat launch on Pebble Lake. New playground equipment and a family picnic area. There are no shower or dump facilities on site. 7 day maximum stay, no reservations. There is a public swimming beach across the lake and the campground has a trailhead access to over 100 miles of paved bike trail.

A beautiful city park located in the center of Pelican Rapids on the Pelican River. City swimming pool in park and a playground is located across the river in Peterson Park. Parks are connected by a suspension bridge. Bathrooms are modest but clean. Nice quiet place to spend the weekend. There is a dump station and fresh water is available.

In all the years my wife and I have camped, I have never been in restrooms as filthy as at this park. A complaint to management fell on deaf ears. Also, after we had set up at our site I noticed there was not a handle on the water valve. All we got for our money here was electricity.
