Many activities for children, but everything you do, or use, costs extra over and above the high fees for camping; extra people=extra fees, tent on same site=2nd site fee, sewer/water/electric all=individual extra fees. Ponies/horse rides/mini golf/driving range/water park/boats/pontoons/canoes/paddle boats/fire wood/bait = you guessed it - more fees. If you want to keep kids occupied, this is a good choice, but be prepared for the costs involved. Usually crowded. The "Green Acres" area is more quiet, but more expensive due to full hookups. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Kids paradise! Petting zoo, kiddie pool, and a nice regular pool with diving board, paved roads for kids with bikes, and fun for adults too. If you have a boat a nice lake with dock access is right across the street. Been here twice and will return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overpriced and overcrowded and muddy sites. Sites were very small especially for big rigs. This is probably a great place for families with children. Lots to do, but very noisy and crowded. However, you have to pay for everything you want to do except swim. We wanted to have a campfire, but the there were no rings. It was just a spot in the mud and too close to our RV to feel comfortable having a fire. When we called in for a reservation, we specifically asked if we could get Internet access anywhere in the campground. They said yes, no problem. We were about 20 feet from a tower and could not get access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent three days and two nights at this campground and although it is expensive, it is definitely a fun, friendly park. Almost all activities except the pool have a fee. Our grandchildren enjoyed the pony rides, miniature golf, the pool and the waterpark. The FHU site we had, #207, was plenty big and had some nice shade. Although we were near the main road, the noise was not bad. The ice cream is great! The thing that kept the rating at 8 instead of a 9 (too expensive for a 10) was the huge amount of flies!!!! Absolutely overwhelming amount. We would visit again but bring a fly catcher! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and family friendly park. Well maintained landscape and playground areas. Wi-Fi has always worked well at the site we stay at every year. Main office is stocked with all necessities and staff is very helpful. A little more expensive than other campgrounds but worth it. Pool can be very busy at times but if it's 90+ degrees, why wouldn't it be. Roads through campground are all paved and in excellent condition. We camp here twice a year with kids (6-8yrs old) and look forward to it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Kamp Dels is a great place to stay with young kids. Although a little more expensive than most campgrounds, it offers a lot of activities, a great pool area, and good facilities for the whole family. It is a very busy place and the sites are close, but that is part of the fun of the place. I would suggest making reservations early in the peak season as the weekends seem to be sold out in the summer months. One of the best campgrounds we have stayed at. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I have never seen such tight sites in all of my life. They pack the campers in with a shoe horn. We reserved a site for 4 nights and left after an hour - it was just too packed and busy for us. They had a lot of amenities, but it was shoulder to shoulder people in the pool(s) and at the petting zoo and mini golf. This is not my family's idea of camping. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground is a popular destination, which means that it gets very crowded, especially on the weekends. Grounds were kept clean, including the bathrooms and showers. Our campsite had more dirt than grass, but that was not common through out the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Expensive! The base rate was escalated with a weekend charge, three children, electric and water chosen. We purchased the water park for the kids, also. We then saw that the water park was really fun for only for under 8. (2 of our kids are teens) The pool was very crowded, almost to the point of unsafe at times. Sites are very close and the campground is very large! We were given a spot on a corner by the pool and had LOTS of pedestrian traffic walking by on the road and through our site. Our kids enjoyed the caged animals and loved the horses. For nine bucks you can walk your child around the park on a pony. The lake is across the road and it was nice to go there and sit on the dock. We would have taken a pontoon out, but after spending 70 to stay the night and 50 for horse and pony rides, we couldn't afford more. Fire rings/pits are just basically a spot on the ground. The staff is friendly (LOTS of teens speeding around in golf carts), the camp office is understaffed. The bathrooms were clean, showers were nice, but paper towels were out in the bathroom. The dumpsters were overflowing and smelly. I would be an unhappy camper if I was parked close to a dumpster. We would consider coming back here mid week so it wouldn't be so congested. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Though camping is a bit tight, the campground amenities are excellent, both clean and well maintained. It's a prima spot if you or anyone in your family is a fisherman. The campground attractions are suited best to kids 12 and under. The only problem is how to take in all Kamp Dels has to offer in a stay shorter than 4 nights. Bathrooms were very clean and (the ladies) very nice. There is shade on most sites. My children (3 and 8) had a wonderful, memorable time. Definitely worth a return visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is wonderful for families with children. There is lots to do, the grounds are well cared for, the staff is friendly and helpful. Parking can be a bit tough if you have a big rig and the campground is full. No 50 amp hookups. A few had concrete patios, but most did not. We would definitely return if the grandchildren are with us. The swimming pool is a bit small for the number of campground sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed here a few times and this campground is also near the top of our list. In 2006 we stayed in early to mid-May when the campground was not fully open and the water park was still being prepared for the season. There were a few dozen campers the same weekend. Since they were not fully operational, the fee was only $20 a night on the weekend and only the main front bath house was open. Showers and restrooms were clean, some sites are spacious and some are closer (smaller). Plenty of trees for shade, the store is nice, and there is a big water park on the west side of the grounds which the kids will love. There is also a nice bath house next to the water park which was kept clean. We plan to go back at least once a year. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
A very nice family CG. We went before the activities were opened and paid $20 per night. The
regular weekend base rate is $39 for no hookups...everything is extra. Most sites are shady & grassy with no gravel or concrete pads, levelling can be tricky on some sites. Beautiful water park/pool area, nice putt putt, scenic with lake across the road, well-maintained petting zoo. Bathhouses were very clean. Overall a nice place to spend a weekend...but be aware you'll be paying $$ for everything (the main reason it didn't score higher). We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Has a pool with a kid-friendly water park. Offers pony and horseback riding, canoes,
paddleboats, mini-golf, playground, soft-serve ice cream. Some sites are pretty close together but others have plenty of room. Has some cabins and seasonal sites, but not too many. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I drove through all the loops to see what the campground is like but did not stay overnight because all sites were full. We did spend the day at a picnic site. Sakatah Lake state park has two main attractions: the state trail that passes through the park, and the upper and lower Sakatah lakes which adjoin the park. The campground area has full tree cover and mature understory vegetation screening the sites from each other. Sites are short and narrow with boulders and trees limiting turning space. Many if not most spaces cannot accommodate slide outs. The campground appears to have been laid out primarily with tent camping in mind. Most sites have a flat, level area for a tent adjacent to a parking area that is sloped. The site-by-site parking pad lengths on the park reservations web page appear to be accurate if not optimistic and include all usable space between the road and major obstructions like trees. Rigs exceeding these lengths just won't fit at all. Due to the heavy vegetation and standing water there are bugs. Despite its drawbacks, the campground is usually full on weekends during the camping season. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We loved this park for its private, small camp sites perfect for tenters and small RVs. It is right on the Sakatah Bicycle Trail it also has some bicycling camping areas. It is not really suitable for big rigs as the turnarounds are tight and sites are kind of small. The Rangers and park assistants are very helpful and friendly. The lake after June will probably get very green from the farm fertilizer cooking up the algae. Boaters should try Elysian down State Route 60. It is a big lake and cleaner. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
There are 4 loops, total of 62 sites. 48 non-electric and 14 electric. All sites are wooded and are shady. Some sites tend to be sloped side-to-side. People with big RV's or slides may have trouble as most sites are narrow with boulders lining the spur. Sites are primarily dirt, no grass. During summer months there are tons of mosquitos as there is a lot of areas within the park that has standing water. This park tends to be very busy as it is close to the Minneapolis/St. Paul cities. You also do hear traffic morning, noon and night as it is next to a highway. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We drove through the campground, but did not stay. The campsites are very tight with many of the driveways sloping front/back and side/side. It would be very hard to level a Class A. Most sites could not accommodate a full sized motorhome. The sites were carved out of a forest - many sites had so many trees opening slides could be problematic. However, for tent camping or popup camping, these issues would not present problems. Tent/popups might not mind the narrow roads with tall trees and boulders lining the road edge. We had a picnic down by the water - which was very nice (lots of mosquitos of course). Nice fishing dock for the kids (but the water was pretty opaque). Campground does have a dump station. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a well kept park. It is located right on a lake with lake access. The sites are very level, very wide and there is lots of grass and shade trees. The park is mostly seasonal people, and is usually full. This year they had space available. The park is located behind a gas station/liquor store. No traffic goes thru the park however. The owners are extremely courteous and very helpful. The rate reflects a monthly rate. Electricity and cable TV are billed separately. I would definitely camp here again.
