Nightly rate plus $8 reservation fee. As said in earlier reviews the entrance road is pretty narrow, uphill and twisty, not impossible but close if someone is coming the opposite direction. With most big rigs it takes both lanes to enter or exit without driving in the landscaping. Roads are paved and sites are gravel, some nearly level others not. Fire rings and picnic tables, no carpets on the grass. Water is a reach from the front of the site, sewer has two drop points, power is at the back of the site. Some sites are close together, others have plenty of elbow room, most are back-in. The CG is part of a huge REGIONAL park system, lots of stuff to do and trails to hike and bicycle. Laundry holds 2 washers and 4 dryers, wash $1.50 and $2 (large machine), dry 25 cents per ten minutes. Host was friendly, courteous and informative. We would return when in the area. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Hike the park trails, enjoy the huge aqua center nearby, and close to the Mall of America, plus outlet malls.

Details of previous reviews are accurate, except, the entrance/exit driveway is impossible if two big rigs tried to pass...way too narrow and curvey. Difficult when two cars pass each other. It definitely needs to be widened. Also, sign on road is now covered by bushes so beware because it's an easy to miss entrance. Once inside the park, for that is what it is, a well manicured and maintained park, road signs are well defined, sites are level, albeit close, and campfires set right under neighbor's RV windows. If you have allergies to smoke, beware, everyone has campfires. This campground is very popular so need advance reservations. The section with FHUs is close and open, another section is very rural and rustic. Something for everyone. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Around the corner from Zoo, Within 15 minutes of Mall of America, Also surrounded by park trails for hiking and biking.

This campground has a two week maximum with full hookups which is largely why we paid $32 a night to stay here, and has decent WiFi in the West Loop. The park has extensive trails and waterways but most are all separate (across a busy street) from the campground. The campground itself has some deep spaces but the sites are in close proximity to each other with little separation (ie: trees, brush etc.) My main complaint though is the staff. Every interaction has been slightly unpleasant and there is one gentleman in particular who has been pretty aggressive with enforcing the "rules." The worst incident was on our first Sunday he came up to our site and asked why we hadn't left yet since check out time was 11am. When we stated we were here for two weeks, he said no you are not... site 8 is checking out today. It's worth mentioning that as he was speaking he was standing next to the marker showing we were in site 7. Wood is it's $5 a bundle and there is a $1,000 fine if you bring in non certified wood, which they strictly enforce. When we asked where a certified vendor was so that we could buy in bulk we were told to look online. It's been a long time since we have been treated this rudely at a campsite and I would not return. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Caponi Art Park is nearby which we enjoyed.

This is our 10th stay here and it hasn't changed much in the 12 years since our first visit. It's a county park so no extended stay rates, just the daily rate. Sites are level, gravel, with good 50A power and convenient sewer. The water spigots are located near the front of the sites, sometimes requiring 40' or more of water hose. We had forgotten to pack our extra hose this year so the campground loaned us a 10' hose to use. We bought another 25' hose and returned the loaner. I consider this excellent service. Although we were here on the Memorial day weekend and the park was full with many kids, the noise was not objectionable and everyone was well behaved. Reservations can be made online with a well designed website that shows a map of the available sites for your specified stay. There is an $8 reservation fee, but it's worth it as this park is popular, especially on the weekends. All sites are satellite friendly and the WiFi internet is good, but slow when the park was full. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Although this was our first stay, this is one of our favorite parks now. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating (they were able to fit us in at 75'.) The park is incredibly well maintained and regularly patrolled by the Dakota Sheriff's office. There's a beautiful playground for the kids, trails and if you don't find enough to do in the park, Apple Valley is only minutes away and there's everything you can imagine there. If that still isn't enough, the Mall of America is only ~20 minutes away. They run a tight ship here, but I appreciated that. Great place! We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Great value and a nice park in general. Very convenient to the Twin Cities and with access to the necessary grocery stores, etc. The bathrooms were spotless and most sites are very spacious (there are a few tight ones). We will return again. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Would have rated a 10 if the entrance were better suited to big rigs (ours is 40'). Pads are hard gravel. There are 2 sewer access points at each site. Water pressure and electricity are reliable. Water spigot is at front of site, so long hose is required. There is only 1 road in and out and this 2 way road is very narrow and curvy. A big rig requires both lanes to maneuver. Dakota county needs to entirely revamp the entrance/exit for safety reasons. We would return. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this park. It was the perfect mix of feeling like we were camping and with all of the amenities of an RV park. We stayed in spot 16 and had no problem with satellite. The staff were very friendly when we checked in and went over the rules of the park and area attractions which we very much appreciated. It is located in a safe neighborhood with many stores and restaurants nearby and not far from the downtown area. The actual pads are a bit narrow, but there is ample grass on both sides. The WiFi is the best we have had in a long time! We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

A great park for visiting the Minneapolis/St Paul Area. Some sites are a little tight but most have plenty of space. It is a small quiet campground which is very well maintained by a friendly helpful staff. We will definitely be using this park again as we travel to the area quite often to visit family.

This is a very nice park!! Super clean and enough off the road that road noise was non-existent. The owners were very nice. I related to them the story of the KOA where they wanted to charge $5 for our visitors for a couple of hours and they said they allow up to 6 visitors per paying campers. So nice! I would highly recommend staying here! A+++++++ We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Well maintained and manicured park with full hookups at site. Three different loops. The RV loop had decent spacing but not great. Some shady spots. Very good shopping and dining nearby, everything you could want. The other two loops are heavily wooded and well spaced but only have power. Some sites could take a large trailer or motorhome. Mosquitoes not too bad considering the ponds nearby. Some wild turkeys and very large snapping turtles wandering around. Pets must be on 6' leash at all times. Cell reception was good. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a wonderful campground. We have stayed here a number of times. The only shortfall is the Wi-Fi service. It is extremely slow. The laundry room is small but nice and clean. I highly recommend this campground. It is in the city but you'd never know it. Plenty of good shopping and restaurants located close by.

Campground is clean and laid out well. Spaces are fairly big and don't make one feel crammed. This park is only 5 minutes from just about any store one could need. The only issue we had were ticks and more ticks. We removed 11 from our dog in 7 days and he was out only to do his bathroom duties. We also removed 3 ticks from the wife. Our rig is 40' long. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.
