Never again! We were told that we had a nice site. HA! We required 5 boards to level our camper on one side. 1 step out our door we encountered a stump. Fine sand/dirt ground cover would make for a HUGE mess if it rained. They ask for payment in advance for your entire stay (should have been a clue), non-refundable. Had we not already paid, we would NOT have stayed here. Couldn't find any sites in the entire park that we would have actually enjoyed using. The pool, showers, lodge, petting zoo, game barn and pavilion were all very nice. HOWEVER - if you are a weekender - don't bother. The sites that you are required to use are not worth the efforts. If you are "down by the lake" they don't tell you that it's a LONG walk uphill to the pool area. If it rained down there - the mud would be awful. Drive the extra 15 miles north and camp at Itasca State Park.

I was a bit nervous about this campground, as I'd heard mixed reviews. We really liked it. It's very family friendly. My daughter was able to borrow movies from the store to watch, and I saw LOTS of children playing games at the tables in the store. Beautiful, warm pool and the campground is very clean! Nicely stocked store, beautiful playground, shuffle board, badminton, boat rentals - lots to do! Most all the sights are of average size, each having a concrete pad which was fantastic. Didn't think that the "rules" were anything out of the ordinary. One nice thing is that they have no yard lights in the campground. Gets PLENTY dark and no worries about having a corner campsite with a light in the yard all night! If you're looking for a party place - this wouldn't be the right campground for you. However, if you're looking for a very family friendly, dog friendly, clean campground with very nice amenities - this is it!
