Last stayed here about 7 years ago. It was a dump then and isn't much better now. Okay for an overnight if you can squeeze into a site. Very tight turns and the pads are too small. Plan to drive over some lawn. Not uncommon when you see all the ruts. Cable tv was good as was the water pressure. Pay at the valet, doubt that anyone checks to see if you pay or not. In a good spot if you are traveling. It's a shame they don't re-do this it could be decent. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is still one of the few camping areas open all year in the north. They have made improvements and repairs to the sites and roads since we were here last winter so it was easier to get in and out for an overnight stop. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Spots here are long enough for our 40ft + tow. Valet service is not good at all. Will say their buffets are excellent. There was a lot of construction going on, new pads being poured. Glad to see improvements. We always stay here when traveling to Minnesota. Hope they keep improving, we enjoying stopping here, a little gambling and good food.

They are upgrading many sites. So there is some construction. Easy access to I35. We had great cable. We parked on a level concrete site. There is grass between most sites and small trees. They do offer service to and from the casino. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Select a site and either call for a ride or walk to the casino to pay. Buffet prices have skyrocketed since our last stay. Roads are in very bad repair and narrow. Saw one site that had been widened and cement replaced with gravel. Goose poop is everywhere! Grass was tall and puddles/mud made it very difficult to walk the dogs. Could really be a nice campground if they maintained it. Would stay again in a pinch. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an RV park at least a quarter of a mile from the casino. One can call the casino for a ride from your site. Registration for the campground is at the entrance of the casino. There are no toilets or showers in the campground. There are toilets in the casino. And a restaurant. This is very handy from I-35. Well kept, but watch out for the goose poop.

We stay at this campground twice a year. Once on the way south in the fall, once in the spring on the way home. We stay here because it is the only campground open late in the fall, and early in the spring. The park is getting very run down. The site pads are broken, there are ruts on almost every site, the light post don't work, the electric post are in sad shape, with broken outlets, there are leaky faucets everywhere. Maybe if they would take some of what they take in and make some repairs it would help. No attendant at the park and you have to hike up to the casino to pay.

We have stayed at this park going north and south for years as it is right off the Interstate 35, easy to get into and out of. But that may come to an end if they don't do something about their roads. I truly don't know when I have see such large and deep potholes. One takes risks taking their RV's over these holes. The casino either needs to maintain this park or close the park. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a horrible place. First come, first serve so if there are any adequate sites, they are taken but there probably aren't any decent sites. Extremely narrow roads and sites make it a challenge to park without hitting another RV and staying out of the deep ruts at every corner isn't possible. Some of the electrical boxes are broken and all of the water spigots are so tall and close to the broken concrete pads that they may interfere with a bedroom slideout on the driver side. If you're in this area and can't drive on, dry-camp in the truck parking area. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Like others have said most of the pads are broken up probably because they are too narrow without proper lead in and out ramps. The roads are narrow too and very poor, along with poorly placed, untrimmed trees made it difficult to stay on the pavement with a large rig. The site I ended up in had a tree than blocked my forward exit so I had to back up. I saw other doing the same thing. Walk the park before entering (I didn't) to select a site, then call the phone number and eventually you can get someone to come out and take you to the casino where you register with the valet. No reservations. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Some sites and roads have really bad holes that you don't want to drive into because they are deep enough to cause damage. There are a number of water leaks, broken pads with some unusable. Spoke to staff and they said that management makes their money from the Casino and not the RV Park so they do not want to put any money into it. If nothing is done to improve the sites this park will probably close down based on current condition. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved finding a level, easy access place to overnight. We don't gamble, but we did walk over to the casino to pay, walked around a little inside. There was a restaurant and bar there along with lots of slot machines and tables. Yes, some pads had broken spots, and any ruts next to the pads were obviously caused by RVers who couldn't keep their tires on the concrete! The pads were concrete and even though the parking area was on a hill, the pads were pretty level, and were pull-throughs. Some had the sewer mid-range, some farther back, so I would suggest two things, walk the pads and pick one that matches the utilities to your RV, and keep in mind the higher up on the hill you are, the farther you are away from the annoying goose poop. Of course, I've had to dodge plenty of dog poop from inconsiderate pet owners who think it's perfectly fine to restrain their dogs with an enclosure, and then pack up and leave, without picking up the refuse from their pets, so although the goose poop made it a little of an obstacle course, what else is new! Each site was generously sized with a picnic table, the Wi-Fi was excellent, it even had free cable. It was a HECK of a deal compared to many places we've been. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.
