We stayed in this campground for four nights, over a holiday weekend. The check-in staff that checked is in were extremely personable. You are charged five dollars a day or $25 a year vehicle admission fee for your RV even if you are camping. On the positive side, we were not charged this fee for our tow vehicle. The roads into the campsites are paved with the sites in our section being gravel and grass. We were in site 116 and the site couldn't have been better unless it had water and sewer hookups. The sites are large and roomy. This campground has three sections. The 300 loop is the oldest and appeared to have a more rustic feel when we walked through. The 200 loop was finished in 2011 and seemed to lack the feeling of privacy found in section 100, the last section finished. The numbering system is counterintuitive being backwards in numbering system to year of completion. There is only one camp host at this campground and their site is in section 300, so we never saw him/her/them. The shower house definitely needs some attention. I did figure out, on our last day, that it was cleaned once a day around noon. Given the volume of folks using it, it would have been helpful to have someone check on it a couple of times a day on the weekend. By looking in the corners and edges of the shower stall, I could tell that attention to the cleaning details and walls has been lacking. Simply stated, the walls and floors some good old fashion elbow grease (scrubbing). In addition, the air filter is in need of changing. The amount of dust trapped there made it look as though it hasn't been changed since the building was completed. There is only one dump station for the whole campground. The hiking trails at this park are some of the best we have seen. The hidden jewel in the park is a trail to a waterfall located about a mile from loop 100. We found this beauty accidentally. It is down a steep hill, but well worth the walk. The deer and butterflies are abundant. We also saw a couple of hummingbirds. We camped here in a Motorhome.

The park itself is nice – pretty waterfalls – great location for “jumping off” into Minneapolis (say Mall of America). The CG’s obviously been remodeled. I’d give it a higher rating, but 1. the facilities are not well designed for RV’s (our section was section 200 and it had no showers); also, our section had water spigots (they looked brand new) but the spigots were not threaded for hoses, so couldn’t use them to fill up RV tank. So we had to go to section 100 to shower (that section has nice showers, but it has no trees/looks desolate/and is close to the busy road) and to section 300 at the dump station to fill up our water tank. Just seemed like a strange layout to me. Maybe section 300 would be the place to stay, but the office told us that they didn’t have spaces there with electric that would accommodate our RV’s. We arrived on a Tuesday and the CG was virtually empty. And, also on the downside 2. the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. When we were assigned our spot by the staff, I pointed to the “restroom facility” on the map of our section, and asked if there were showers. The answer was “yes” but it turns out there are not. Then when DW went back to complain, she was scolded for not having the CG pass in her window – we had just checked in and hadn’t even parked in our campsite yet! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Camped at the lower level site. New upper level just opened. Lower level was very shaded. The upper level was all open with very little shade. Nice trails and beach next to campsites. Paved roads made driving in easy. Have camped here many times and the campgrounds are always full. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
