It’s surprising that this campground has not been previously reviewed. It’s a backpack-in campground with 2 Yurts and four, electric with heat camper cabins. The hiking along the St. Croix River was so beautiful in the fall. People at the beach were in swimsuits and dipped their toes in the river. Temperatures in 80’s in late September brought out crowds for day hikes and picnics. The prairie grass and leaves were very colorful. We couldn’t believe how much noise that dry, falling leaves sound when they hit the ground. There are plenty of hiking and biking opportunities at this campground. Flush toilets are available in the visitor center or vault toilets throughout the campground. Note that there are no showers or ice available for purchase. The closest city is Afton, however the address lists Hastings on the website. We stayed in a camping cabin and will return. - brendajoro

The RV park is one run with Teutonic efficiency. I've often said that it is the best run park in the country and we travel some 20,000 miles a year with our RV. It is clean to a fault, and very well maintained which helps to lessen the impact of its pricy nature.
With that said the robotic efficiency is unnerving. Interactions with the managers are proper, but almost mechanical and I always felt as though I was being watched to make sure no rules were broken, like running over the grass.
There is almost no grass in the front of the park, but management treats those errant tonsorially perfect blades as though they were endangered. Campers are reminded often of the sacred nature of the grass and should you run over it a stern lecture likely will follow.
But --all of that is minor. My gripe is with their damnable entrance gate. After hours you must stop, get out and physically open the gate. Then when you drive through you have to stop again, get out and close it. Should you not do so another stern lecture could ensue. You might ask, "What's the big deal about closing a gate," well, when you are disabled and walking anywhere is difficult at best, it is a huge deal. Most quality campgrounds that have a gate have a key punch automatic gate. Some, have no gate at all. This one is a barrier for disabled people.
So my review is that it is a well-run park, but one in which a new gate would greatly increase the quality of the stay. - Bob Aronson

Very nice park with large dog run area. Wifi only works close to the office. Fire ring is a truck wheel in a hole in the ground. A hazard in the dark. Eveything else was fine. - Bojangles

All-gravel park with usable wifi and water pressure. Heavily treed and on a bit of a slope, so those who need level ground will be frustrated. Our auto-leveling worked just fine. Very quiet. - The Hilts

What a gorgeous park. The sites are large and the pull through sites have water. We will be back. - grdngrl

This is a large, well kept county run campground. Very comparable to many COE campgrounds we have stayed at. This is one of our favorite places for a quick local getaway, but there are some idiosyncrasies to the place that let you know the people in charge may not be in touch with the modern RV experience.
On our most recent visit we had a pull through that was very steep front to back. Once unhooked, in order to level our trailer the tongue was almost on the ground. Other sites have posts that mark each campsite placed precariously close to the pad, making backing or pulling into your spaces extremely difficult. And finally, they have a strict "no dog" policy for the campground, but dogs are welcome throughout the rest of the park and hiking trails. On this particular visit we felt the park host was somewhat overzealous in his enforcement of rules. On a midweek night, with the park virtually empty and not another camper within several hundred feet we were told our quiet campfire conversation was disturbing other guests. The next morning I was chastised for not having a paper tag with our check out date attached to our campsite marker. I had never received one, and was asked to stop what I was doing and drive to the front gate and obtain one. Once there, the same teenager that checked me in admitted that she forgets to give them out from time to time.
These things aside, it really is a wonderful campground located within a beautiful regional park. There are several miles of hiking trails, a modern boat landing, playgrounds, picnic shelters and other typical park amenities. - scott1k

Extremely large and neat sites all pull through in the modern campground area. Electric and Water only but very clean dump station, Site Z is on the corner looking into woods and field and we regularly saw deer walking through. There is a beach and boat access, along with conference centers, a playground, volley ball court, tennis court, and many other common areas. NO PETS are allowed in the campground (although we saw them in the boat dock area). It was largely empty the entire time we were there and the fellow campers were quiet and polite. My largest complaint was the office staff and campground hosts. They were not very friendly to "out-of towners" and complete sticklers for the rules. That being said, aesthetically it was a beautiful park, one of the nicest we have stayed in. There is no wifi, but my ATT coverage was good. The price is $25 a day and what is not very clear on their website is there is an additional per car $5 day access pass you have to pay for on arrival. (Reservations for the campground are done online.) The annual pass is $25 which you can purchase if your stay is 5 days or longer. They are also inflexible with their cancellation policy. We left a day early and even though we told them that at the beginning of our one week stay they were unwilling to refund us that day. You can stay in the park for one week but then need to move to another spot if you are going to stay longer. - Lee and Trace

This campground is exceptionally clean and well kept. I love the no pet rule due to other campground's rules/no compliance rules by patrons. Clean, supervised, tons of kids friendly places to play. My 2-year old granddaughter was protected by other children's patrons in the park area and we felt so safe on equipment. Everything is within walking, biking or driving distance. A bonus was Ecuadorian neighbors played guitar and and sang during campfire hours which was totally amazing. Can't wait to come back here. Stayed in a travel trailer. - brendajoro

This is a beautiful park reserve and campground. The camp sites are large and grassy. There are enough bushes and trees between them to make them private, but not so dense that you can't get to the site next to you if you're camping with others. Sites 25 and 26 offer a view of a pond. The restrooms were clean although the shower floors and walls are stained yellow. There are lots of trails, playgrounds, a swimming pond, and volleyball nets. Wi-fi and cell signals are good. There are two downfalls to this park though. One is, they don't allow pets in the camp ground. This prevented my brother and his family from joining the rest of us. The second downfall is that Oakdale Gun Club is right next door. The sound of gun shots all day non-stop, all weekend, ruined the tranquility of the park. - Juniper94

Hoffman park is a nice place to spend a few days, and a good value. Nice playground area for the kids. Electric hookups are shared, bring an extension cord. Close to town. - laughing.crone

They could police the use of the 50 amp sites. When we arrived all were filled - one with a pickup camper hooked to 20A even though a sign on the power post says reserved for 30 and 50 amp. Half of the 30 amp sites are not usable unless you bring a 30 amp extension cord as the post is between two widely spaced locations. Convenient dump location. Bathrooms quite a long way from the sites. I do not know if they have showers. - easydoesit

Sites 7, 8, 9 are 50 amp with a pedestal per site. The other sites are 30 amp with shared pedestals. We have stayed at this great city park several times. It is well maintained. The sites are all back in and roomy. This is a nice college town about 50 miles from the Twin cities. - skigramp

Rangers and staff at the contact station are very friendly and helpful. There are three campgrounds in the park 100 loop, 200 loop and 300 loop. The 300 loop is heavily wooded and the oldest of the three loops. 100 and 200 loops are much more open and are big rig friendly. Roads are paved and sites are gravel. Water fill is at the dump station outside the 300 loop. Easy in and out of the dump station. Our site was a pull thru with electricity in the 200 loop. Site was quite level and was long. The showers are in the 100 and 300 loops. They are clean and the water was hot. Saw the rangers quite often out on patrol of the campgrounds. We would definitely stay here again. - Blu1e

We made reservations a month in advance. Upon entry, we were required to purchase out of state pass for motorhome at either $10 a night or $35 for a yearly pass in addition to nightly fee. There are three camping sections with some electric sites in each section with the only water and dump station at campground 300 which is 1 mile down hill from campgrounds 100 and 200. Interior roads are paved with sites level and graveled. Section 300 is the older, heavily treed campground that is not big rig friendly. 100 and 200 are big rig manuverable with little shade. Park rangers are very visible in all sections. - RJourney

Wisconsin State Park. There are three separate campgrounds. The older one is down the hill, and most sites in that campground are not large rig friendly. The two new campgrounds are on top of a bluff near a busy county road, but the sites are large and quiet. Some have some shade, but most are open. Park has a nice little lake, a stream with trout, a nature center, lots of trails and a spectacular waterfall. Park is about 20 miles from the Twin Cities. - William Custer

Not much of an RV Park, basically a paved parking lot. No grass unless you walk over to the dog walk area. Only reason to stay here would be for the casino, which is why we stayed. Parking is very close together and you will need to unhook your tow vehicle. - Matt Klein
Oct 2016 - $30.00
Stayed here 8 days. Sites are close together but good access roads makes the park easy to navigate. No Cable TV, Wifi is so-so depending on time of day. Since this is next to a casino, it can be quite busy and somewhat noisy. Lots of train activity all night long and they are not shy about using their whistles. The people working here are very nice and try to be very accommodating. They worked around my schedule to get me an extra day, and we were grateful for that. No real amenities except for the casino (pretty smokey inside). - DIXIEDUALLY2013

We stay at Treasure Island RV park several times each year. All sites are easy to access. The back in sites are very nice if you are having people join you for picnicking and games as they back up to a grassy area. The remaining sites are gravel with the roadways paved. If it does rain, there is no sinking of jacks. Personally we do not need activities for kids so we are good with being able to relax and sit outside. The train noise is not a bother to us, to some it might be. Excellent security for the park. The hosts have always been terrific. This park has the best shower, bathroom and laundry facilities of any park we have been to. They also provide shuttle service to the casino and marina if you want to go. There is a discount pass for the waterpark at the casino. Red Wing is only a short distance with lots of shopping, food and fun if you want it. - RRBye

Beautiful park, very well kept. $8.00 reservation fee when booking online, not reflected in the per night cost. We arrived at the park at 11 AM on a weekday. Be aware that the staff will strictly enforce a $8.50 early check in fee if you arrive before 1 PM. This is regardless of how busy they are, if your spot is open, whether they have your paperwork ready, or inclement weather expected later in the day. After returning to RV (parked in a designated RV spot) you are directed to remove your RV from the park till you check in after 1PM. Have been traveling full time for 7 years, this was a first, both with the policy and the attitude! - Anam Cara

Convenient campground within the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. There are three loops. Only the West loop has full hookups and paved roads. About half of the sites in this loop are large enough to handle 40'+ motorhomes with tow vehicles. About half of the sites within the West loop are level enough front to back not to need blocks. Spacing is tighter than most public campgrounds but still better than RV parks. The restrooms and showers were clean and in good condition. Verizon and AT&T coverage were sufficient enough stream Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube videos without buffering. We would stay here again. - ckuptz

Very nice, clean campground. Close to Minneapolis but doesn't feel like you're in a city. We had full hook ups and had a nice, roomy site. WiFi wasn't dependable, and had not great but adequate Verizon signal to make phone calls and work on computer. Staff was nice and helpful. This was our second stay at the campground and would stay here again. - Ben - RV Real Estate Income

The campground was wonderful. Private and heavily wooded. A few of the sites are a bit hilly and difficult to back into with a long motorhome but doable. Seems that the Savanna side seems newer and sites are a bit more spaced apart than the Riverside camping area. Fabulous campground but the showers are in serious need of ventilation, painting and deep cleaning- preferably with bleach! Black mold and looks like green algae growing on the walls in the showers. - NanciRV

We love this place. Camp there every year. Lake Alice is a great place to swim and the trails are just perfect for new bikers. You can feed the sunnies in the swim area too and our grandkids love that. - Mobes

We came in for a week without reservation and found a very nice wooded site. Driving around the campground saw many sites that in my opinion were very large. (Michigan take note!) Minnesota is going to an all site reservation system beginning 1/1/2015 eliminating walk in sites making weekend camping plans without reservation almost impossible at popular parks. Nice bike trails and paths. The Riverway part of campground very close to river with nice path next to it. Nice staff. Would definitely return. - smitty12
