Very nice campground. The only negative would be that the sites are on the small side. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. Nice pool and play area for kids. Horseshoes, volley ball court. We will go back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very attractive large park with paved roads, green grass and many trees. It is well maintained with a nicely heated swimming pool (which was packed most of the time), and camp store with yummy ice cream cone service. They have a large hall that is used occasionally for dances, etc. They have two bathrooms that are clean but showers are the pay type. There are also some satellite type toilets around the park. Campsites are laid out along several looping roads and generally offer shade but no bushes, etc., to offer any privacy. There is adequate room between units for slide outs and awnings. Units can be placed anywhere on grass lot. Lots are generally fairly level. The office was regularly staffed. They were pretty much all business. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. Site was back in but could have been pull through if campground wasn't full. Campground is located in a quiet rural setting away from highways, etc., so is generally quiet. Again sites are fairly close together so noise from next door can be an issue. Unfortunately, we were here when it was very hot, placing extra demands on the parks electrical system. We had two lengthy power outages one day. The 3 park power transformers were operating at max and one of them failed. I noted another had water running constantly on it to keep it cool. We would definitely stay here again but hopefully when it is cooler and the power demands are reduced. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has a lot to offer - a swimming pool, volleyball, horseshoes, and a large field for a game of baseball or football. The problem is the owners are so rude and grumpy they will probably yell at you for trying to have a good time. My early teenager was yelled at for using the Rainbow climber but nowhere was there a sign stating a maximum age or weight limit. Some kids were having fun riding their bikes over a mound of dirt. The owner barricaded it. Some campers a couple lots down were putting up a tent. The owner watched them putting it up then when they were finished yelled at them that tents weren't allowed. The bathrooms aren't that great and the showers are pay. The roads are paved but very narrow and are not one way. Our campsite had a nice crushed rock pad but was badly off level both front to back and side to side. I will not be staying here again unless it is under new ownership. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Cannon Falls Campground was AWESOME! Great place for family and friends. Clean, with tons of amenities: pool, playground, volleyball courts, paved streets and tons of trees! Ignore the poor reviews, obviously their people got yelled at for being rude. I'm glad: who want's to camp with those kind of people anyway! We loved it!!! An A+++++++++++ We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We truly enjoy staying at Cannon Falls Campground. We come here 3 or 4 times a year. hey just paved the roads this year and the place is always clean. The rules are simple, yet strictly enforced, which we enjoy. The pool is always nice and warm and is wonderfully clean. There are different activities for the kids and the seasonal campers always make the "weekenders" feel welcome. We highly recommend this campground to everyone we meet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This review is all about the staff and owners. The owner has to be the rudest person I have ever had to deal with. This would have to be the last camp ground on earth before I would make my family stay one more night. As for children welcome I don’t believe they are for the owners and staff do every thing but make them feel welcomed. They make them feel more like second hand citizens. Do your self a favor and read the reviews about the staff and owner and you will start to see a pattern. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campers beware...one campground to leave off your list is Cannon Falls Campground. We just got home from there and well I just can't say enough. The owners and their staff are the most awful people I have ever met. Our group was harassed and threatened with police action for laughing once after quiet time...ONCE. Also, I am pregnant and have a hard time holding my bladder and when I had to ask to use the bathroom while it was being cleaned I was told that I was harassing them and was also threatened and a 17 year old child who stood up for me was threatened to be thrown in detox because they assumed he was drinking even though he is under age and was not drinking at all. What kind of people are these to treat their customers this way? No other campers were complaining about us...it was just the security guard that didn't like us and in the end the owners said how much they dislike large groups of tent campers so we were in trouble the minute we made the reservation. One more thing; if you are gay (as my brother is) if you go there expect to get some really nasty looks from the owners...they frown upon that as much as they frown upon having a few drinks and laughing at your campsite after quiet time (even if you are being quiet). So, if you go camping to have fun...DO NOT go to Cannon Falls Campground! We camped here in a Tent.

This was our destination for first camping experience in our new (to us) travel trailer. We found the campground to be nice and clean, and we had a large shady campsite. The pool was a little on the small side, but they kids enjoyed it very much. I'm sure that we will visit again as we live near by. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was pleasant enough, but very crowded on the weekend. Totally quiet, however, as though everyone went to bed at 10 p.m. Nice family atmosphere. There are only three sites in the park that have both 50 amp and sewer. These sites were so unlevel that we could not get level, despite using boards on our 26-foot motor home and our friends using their jacks on their 40-foot motorhome. The young woman in the office was very nice but the older man and woman in the office (owners?) were unfriendly and unpleasant. Very convenient to the Cannon Valley bicycle trail, which is wonderful. Nice swimming pool but packed with children on the weekend. The laundry had two washers and two dryers that were nearly new and functioned well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are close together and poorly marked. The owner guy is very grumpy. The pool is tiny. The restrooms were clean. The CG is close to Cannon Falls and easy to find. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Family campground with swimming pool, game room and playground for kids. Cannon Valley bike trail nearby. Canoeing and tubing on Cannon River also close. Campground well maintained. Gravel interior roads. Sites are nicely sized. Have facilities for group events. We camped here in a camper.
You are a bit close to other campers and if they are the barking dog or screaming kids people it will be like they are in your campsite. They do not allow mats, which we found out when we received the 'warning' from the office folks. I can understand, they have very nice grass at the sites. Pads are gravel and level. One thing we noticed is that there is no where walk. There is no sidewalk or path to walk on. You walk on the road which is very narrow. Not a huge deal but noticeable. If you want to sit around the fire ring you are literally right next to your neighbor. Not much privacy. The town of Cannon Falls is very close and a fun place to spend a little time in. Overall nice and a decent place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground was family friendly for it had activities for kids. There was a lot of noise from the road where we were parked. The lake was getting green so swimming was not an option. The staff were helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park that is on a very nice lake. The sites are all back in sites. They all have a good view of the lake. There is a very large and nice playground. The bathrooms are very nice and clean. The east side sites have more shade than the west ones do. Very nice park. Well maintained. We will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lake Byllesby Regional Park is a county owned and run campground. The facilities were very clean while we were there and the staff was also very friendly. This campground has a nice beach on Lake Byllesby. All the roads through the park are paved and the sites are gravel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed this beautiful Dakota County park/campground. It was full the weekend we were here (almost every weekend is full during the summer here and now I know why) Every camp site has a great view of the Lake. The beach was a short walk and it was very nice, but there was algae in the water. (We went to the Cannon Falls pool to swim instead, just a short drive.) Gophers amused my daughter as well as a huge playground. The camp store has free loaner fishing poles and tackle to use in the lake. My advice would be to request sites 1 to 17 as there is no road/pedestrian path between your camper and the lake. Pedestrian and bike traffic was pretty crazy Friday and Saturday night. Hosts of this campground were friendly, the county park deputies were seen frequently driving and walking around. At this point, summer 2007, the County has a Firewood Restriction in place; they request you purchase and burn only their wood at your camp site due to the Emerald Ash Borer beetle. They do ask upon check in if you brought wood. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed this facility so much that we stayed an extra night to enjoy the view and area. Very clean, good camp sites with view of awesome lake. Nice play area for children and tent area. Hosts were very accommodating and helped us by providing a handicapped site for us. Cell phone service was good and satellite worked with no obstructions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful sites adjacent to the lake... what a view. Friendly staff, nice store. Very clean park. Electric + water at site with dump near the office. About 4 miles from Cannon Falls. Good access for 'big rigs'. Asphalt roads with gravel RV pads. Good Verizon cell phone reception. Very nice place... you will enjoy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is very clean and well maintained by Dakota County. Also has on-site
caretakers who are always very friendly and helpful. The park has 35 RV sites and 22 tent sites. There is lake to fish on as well as a beach and swimming, a nice playground for kids as well as hiking trails. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
