This is our second stay at Palm Creek. Check-in is cordial and welcoming and you are issued a photo badge. The park is set up for long-term stays but short-terms stays are welcomed. The park setting is beautiful when you first arrive because the entry road winds thru the golf course and tall palm trees. The park includes a restaurant and a full range of activities. It is a park by which all others are judged.

This was our second stay at this park. The short-term parking is in a gravel field but the park has pull-thru sites with concrete patios. The park has lots of services, activities including 3 pools and an on-site hotel. The hotel is a good services if you are there for the winter and want a place for friends and family to stay when they visit.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 2 nights. The campground is mostly a gravel field but with plenty of room to park and all sites are pull-thru. Despite the fact that the campground was very empty we ended up parked right between other campers, I guess because we asked for 50 amp service. The office staff was very nice and helpful.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The laundry was clean and worked well. They even offer pizza to be ordered and a 'chuckwagon' for breakfast. We liked being escorted to our site. The park was gated which provided extra security as the park is located in an industrial area. It is also a short drive to attractions downtown. WI-fi and cable worked well.

We had a one night stay on our way through the area. The park used to be a KOA and you can see why it isn't anymore. The roads are all gravel and dusty. We had a pull-thru site right next to the road and we couldn't open our windows because there was constant traffic and the dust was bad. The staff was friendly and helpful but that didn't make up for the poor quality of the park.

The park was beautiful due to the many trees in their full fall colors. The management was friendly and made sure that we had enough room to park our tow vehicle in a site next to our site. The restrooms were beautiful and clean. The campground included lots of amenities as well as really nice looking cabins and camping cabins. A fun place to spend a week in the summer with your children, lots to do for them. Sites were close but staggered to make it feel spacious. We were close to town and the Agawa train as well as lots of restaurants and grocery stores.

The management was very friendly when we checked in. The price was less than the provincial parks but with the same services (electricity, no sewer). At private parks I expect the opposite, full services and more money. We had too big of a unit to get full hook-ups. We did not have reservations because it was late in the season which may have affected that.

This is a small but beautiful provincial park. Since it was the end of the season there was no attendant in the office and check-in was on your own. The park was busy probably because many of the other parks were already closed for the season. We had a beautiful site facing Lake Superior with a panoramic view out our large front window. We had electricity at our site with a dump and water available in the park. If you were able to camp without electricity you could have a secluded site right on the water, there were 2+ of those. It was right off the highway but we were not bothered by truck noise at night.

The park was typical of state and provincial parks, i.e. long on beautiful trees and beautiful sites and short on conveniences. It is close to the falls and the really nice walking trails. At night it was very quiet and dark and the stars were abundant.

Late in the season so no reservations but no difficulty getting a pull-thru site. It is a large campground with lots of trees that make it kind of hard to get around some places. It had a lot of seasonal people. It was nice to have full hook-ups. Located on a lake and close to Minoqua and all the shopping and eating available there.

This campground is run by the city of Grand Marais. Because it was late in the season we had no reservation but also had many choices of spots. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites were close but we chose one on the end and only had someone on one side. It is located close to town so you can walk to downtown. The town is touristy so there are lots of restaurants and some shops.

We stayed for 5 days while attending a nearby wedding. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The cost was really reasonable for full hookups and was a nice space with beautiful grass. My husband looked at the restrooms and said they were spotless. The other campers were mostly long-term seasonal so it was really quiet. They offered ice and wood for a small cost. The camp had a really nice playground and an area to gather and picnic. The restroom building had foosball and air hockey game tables.

Date of Stay:

We stayed for three nights. The resort has a pool, playground and a nice restaurant/bar which served good food (we had drinks one night and pizza the next). It was early summer so not crowded but the sites were very close and had no trees in our section, so no shade. The ground was level and grassy so it was easy to park. Each site had a fire pit and picnic table on a cement slab with full hook-ups.

This is a beautiful Wisconsin state park. But due to state budget cuts staying there can be a frustrating experience. The sites are fully wooded and quite private but have not had maintenance done to them in a long time and so it is almost impossible to level your RV. In addition, there is not a camp host on site or a ranger or any other staff to help you find out which sites are available. We had a reservation through Reserve America and our assigned site was very un-level. The park was almost deserted so we moved to the best site we could find but there was no staff there to tell us what was available, consequently, we got all set up and then had to move. Gorgeous view of the Mississippi from the picnic area.

The man who checked us in was very friendly. The campground was grassy and treed with gravel parking spots that were not very level. The sites were close together and most of the other RVs were very old and in bad shape. The campground was bordered with a run-down mobile home park which was not separated by a fence. A train track runs close to the park and a train can be heard several times per day. The roads were full of potholes. But it was an okay park for the price considering we had sewer at our site in addition to water and electricity.
