We stopped here but did not stay. The rules and regulations are lengthy and capricious. For instance, if you bid your neighbor in the next campsite a good night, you have violated the quiet time if it is after 9:30 pm. Pets are NOT WELCOME and are subject to even more onerous regulations which are subject only to the interpretations of the owners. If you truly try to abide by these nuerotic laws you will spend your stay looking over your shoulder. Check the website before you arrive, all regulations are at the discretion of the management without refunds.

We had previous reservations for a local campground on the mountain and ran into problems beyond our control. We were left with no choice but to look for new campgrounds. We found this campground manager at Indian Point Campground and although he was full, he jockeyed us into a site for our week stay. This campground is very pleasant and well kept. The manager was bar none, the most hospitable campground manager that I have encountered. He put forth a great deal of effort to ensure not only a high level of comfort but made it possible for us to stay in a wonderful campsite close to Duluth for a solid week. In my opinion, a campground can only be as good as its manager. If this guy managed a campground in a different location, I would rate it a 10. This location is a bit blue collar, but that is forgotten quickly once entering the park. I recommend this campground highly.

We had reservations (used internet site) to stay at this campground for one week. We arrived on a saturday afternoon about 4:30 p.m. Found my site and had a good idea that my 29' travel trailer was not going to fit although I was told previously that it would. I backed in, and the tongue of the trailer was in the road. The door of the trailer opened into multiple trees and a thick patch of poison ivy. When I made reservations there were only two sites open at the time. Since the site I reserved was unusable and inhabitable, I went to the office to see if I could move. There was nobody at the office and I called two phone numbers that I found from the Minnesota campground guide and nobody answered the phone either. I had no choice but to find a different campground. We left a note explaining our situation and they called 1 day later saying that they would refund all but one days worth ($25) due to policy. I felt that this was unfair because I did not back out of the 'deal'. I showed up on time and there was no alternative for me due to lack of personnel. I give this campground a rating of 1 because 0 is not an option. If I had a full refund they would have had a 3. It is a nice location and the sites are small and private, good for tents and pop-ups.

My wife thinks this is too far away from anywhere but it is quiet. Located on the Nueces River you can use your boat or rent one to go fishing. Also an oxbow fishing pond on site. The people in charge are friendly and helpful. The park is gated and safe. Their laundry pavilion is exceptionally nice. I wouldn't visit Crystal City after dark, otherwise this is a 10.

Date of Stay:

A wind swept gravel knoll behind a motel and truck stop with the associated noise. Pieces of re-bar stick up from broken concrete-watch out. If a Wal-Mart is a 3 this is a 2 for even worse security. I won't give it a 1 because I'm sure there is someplace worse and the management is at least neutral, not nasty.

Date of Stay:

Some might not give this a 10 because you need to make your own fun (fishing). If you get a spot here it will be on a bank overlooking the Little Red River, a good trout stream. You can access this for wading right from your site or rent a boat and motor from the resort. Many cable channels available and you can get a wi-fi signal from the fly shop adjacent to the resort. They know and they don't mind. Be sure to be on your own side of the river if they start to generate power at the dam. You'll know by the incresed flow. Bring your own beer, it's a dry county!

Date of Stay:

$2.00 per day for wireless access otherwise this could be a 10. Park is clean and sites are adequately sized. 65 cable channels are nice for rainy days. They have a 500' fishing pier and some of the sites have a nice view of the bay. Walking distance to good restaurant and short drive to others. Seemed safe and in a good area of town. A lot of winter residents here.

Date of Stay:

I rate this as an "8" because I had a lakeside site. Maybe 20% of the sites are waterfront. Not far from all the attractions if that sort of thing interests you. Nice view out the rear windows. Couldn't find a wireless signal

Date of Stay:

The couple who own the place are very pleasant. Pull through sites are spacious and level. Location is far enough off the road that the noise is not noticeable. Not a destination but close to many nice places (Greers Ferry, Buffalo River, etc.)

Date of Stay:

Mostly permanent residents crammed in to small sites. No wi-fi or cable. Off the air tv is very poor as well. Stray dogs run wild in the park threatening those on leashes. Road out front heavily traveled by semis and railroad tracks used all night noisily. This is a "any port in a storm" type of park.

Date of Stay:

Very pleasant and capable hostess. Park is clean and well run. Sites are extremely small, my 36' 5th wheel covered all the land at my site-had to park the pickup elsewhere. Neighbor had to move his vehicle to allow me to leave. There is a dog pound or kennel at the west end of the park and the mutts never shut up. There is a lot to see in Vicksburg so this place is tolerable.

Date of Stay:

Good view of the bay from some sites. Some are close together. Manager is friendly. Good cable selection and fishing pier. Walking distance to good seafood. Bait shop across the street. Wi-fi available if you can get the code from a nearby hotel.

Date of Stay:

Very neat well kept park. Far enough away from I-35 to be quiet. Owners are nice and kind of fussy. They probably need to be that way. No wi-fi.

Date of Stay:

A quiet place to spend the night. Well stocked store. Nice people running the place. Rough road between I-35 and park. Wi-fi works well. Not a destination, but not bad.

Date of Stay:

Particularly pleasant during the week. Busy on weekends . If you want TV bring a dish, no cable or off the air. Dogs on leash applies more to some than others. Huge spring fed swimming pool. Upper Iowa is a good canoeing and fishing river. The resort rents lots of canoes on warm days-they have a shuttle. We camp here several times a year and enjoy it.
