This was a one night stop for us on our way to the Boundary Waters. This is a very well maintained park with bike trails and ponds on site. There are also some hiking trails and lovely landscaping. The staff was more than friendly and gave us some great tips on backing up our 42 foot toy hauler. The other campers came up to chat and we were pleasantly surprised they also had children with Autism. We saw lots of children riding bikes and parents enjoying time outdoors. The mosquitoes were not as viscous here as in northern Minnesota woodlands, but avoid the ponds if you choose not to use DEET. This county owned park is one of the best we have every seen if we come this way again we will certainly come back.

This is a long term stay park with several nightly spots available but call ahead. The park hosts are very friendly and the sites are large and drain well. I give the campfire a ten, but the mosquitoes are so vicious that it requires layers of deep woods OFF. The little monsters even bit right through our clothes. There are also lots of black flies and black winged bees. Whatever those are, they chased us in our canoe and on every trail. Do go canoeing though here in the Boundary Waters it was very pleasant and the other people we met along the trail were all so friendly. Minnesota has great weather in the summer and you just can't beat the laid back people and these wonderful camp hosts. There didn't seem to be much for small children to do. This is not a resort type location, but if your looking for quiet, this is your place.
