We stayed at this campground last spring also and it was so-so. I believe it is under new ownership this year and it is much improved and looks to be an ongoing process. It is a younger couple running it now and there were many KOA people around while we were there helping them out. They did direct us to our site and were VERY helpful all weekend. Some of the sites are a bit close together but not a big deal depending on where the fire rings are. The first site they put us in would not work due to the location of the utility poles & our slide out and the fire ring in front of us (would not be able to use the awning). After asking if we could change sites, they ended up letting us take one of the more expensive sites, the ones that are longer and have a concrete patio, for no extra charge since it was a quiet weekend and they were not very crowded. It ended up being VERY nice & quiet where we were. We were right across from the mini golf course (which is pretty old but I did overhear them say they are planning on some updates/painting/repairs) and were able to see a robin's nest that was built in one of the structures of the golf course. The robin was actually laying the eggs that Saturday while we were there and it was fun to watch the birds circling and watching from the trees while people were golfing, then heading right back to sit on the nest when everyone was gone. Wonderful experience for the kids! The pool was very clean and the water was MUCH warmer than last year. They actually had a thermometer in the pool and the water temp was around 81-83 degrees. All in all we had a wonderful weekend here and would recommend this campground and we will definitely be back. We camped at Minneapolis Southwest KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Camped here with our 3 year old and she had a wonderful experience. The owners go out of their way to make sure the kids have a good outdoor experience and interaction with the animals. They have horses, lamas, rabbits and chickes. The kids get to collect eggs from the chicken coop, pet the animals, help brush the horses & llamas and ride the horses (with the owner leading them around the campground). They do charge extra for the horse rides and the horse drawn wagon rides, but well worth it! We will definitely return here. We camped at Red Barn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We have been to this campgroun 3 times so far in the last 2 years and love it! The indoor swimming pool is great for the kids in the spring & fall. Everyone has always been very nice & helpful. The kids love the firetruck rides and the sites are not on top of each other. Very large wooded sites. We camped at St Croix River Resort in a Travel Trailer.
