We had one of the few pull-thru sites in the West Loop. The site was not quite level but didn't require a lot of cribbing. Unfortunately it rained for the three days we were there and since we were on a hill we had a constant 'river' flowing through our site. Some additional gravel would be a big improvement. There was also a period of no water due to a problem with the main but it was fixed quickly. The park is very close to I35 and therefore is easy to get into Minneapolis. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Really nice park very close to sights and the city. Well maintained, great level sights, good ultilites, lots of trees but most sites can still get satellite reception. Mowed lawns, lake, paved roads and small store. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Lebanon Hills is a large regional park campground with a loop of full hook up site and two other loops of a mix of electric and no hook up sites. The RV loop is open to easily get satellite reception but most of the back in sites are fairly close together. It is very convenient to the Twin Cities area. The GPS directions will take you to a visitor center and difficult turn around that is not the campground. Call the campground ahead of time for the exact address. A wonderful forest setting in the middle of the city. We would definitely return to Lebanon Hills. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Large level grass field with long pull through sites. Sites are two RV's long so first there gets pull through and second must back in. Good 50 amp/water/sewer hook ups. Easy walk or bike to Amana. Open sky no shade. Easy in and out for big rigs. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We were looking for a place to park our brand-new trailer and we chose this place because of your reviews. The park was very nice. It was very crowded on Sat and the campsites are pretty close together. On Monday it was almost empty. This will be our new, favorite place for the first trip next time. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful, clean, quiet, well-kept park. Very convenient to everything we wanted to see and to shopping. Easy to get into the cities and, strangely, the heavy traffic was always going in the opposite direction. OTA TV, Verizon hotspot and phone all worked well, but campground wifi was erratic and mostly unusable. Sites are angled in such a way that some are much roomier than others. For an urban location this place can't be beat. Would definitely stay again. Rate shown is for a week not including reservation fee. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this park. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and the sites were gravel and well spaced. The campground is hidden away from the road and although you are in the Twin-City area, you are surrounded by nature. When we needed wood for the fire-pit, one of the campground attendants brought it to our site. They have great hiking trails that run through the woods and around some lakes in the park and though you feel like you are in the wilderness, you are a short drive from all the amenities the city has to offer like Mall of America, Cascade Bay Water Park in Eagan and great restaurants. There were a lot of big-rigs (5th Wheels and Motorhomes) at the campground and the sites seemed to easily accommodate them. We will definitely stay here again next year.

Cascade Bay Water Park in Eagan on Pilot Knob Road is a short drive from the Lebanon Hills and a great place to take the kids for a day in the sun. Big pools, a lazy river and slides. If you want a more natural beach experience, Lebanon Hills Park on Cliff Road is not far.

The bathrooms are immaculate as is the campground. Full hookups in one loop. The other two loops are electric only and primitive. These non full hookup loops are more private and you can add a tent. Not in the full-hookup look - no tents allowed and spaces are tight although many back up to woods and have trees and grassy areas nearby.

If you don't need full hookups and don't have a huge travel trailer, choose the electric only loop. It is much more private, water stations nearby all along the road and you can erect a tent with your trailer. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice regional park that is super clean. Even the dumpsters are cleaned regularly and they have an excellent recycling program for trash, recyclables and compost and supply separate garbage bags to sort your trash. There are only a few pull through sites and they are excellent sites. Ours was site #58 and I reserved it online on March 1 which is the first date you can reserve sites for the upcoming season. It is as close to being in the woods at a park that we've been with our huge 5th wheel and full hook ups. There was nobody around us. They informed us that this site had some leveling issues but we had no problem leveling. My only problem with the site was that the mosquitoes were horrible. Be sure to bring your DEET this time of the year. The park is close to Mall of America but you feel a million miles away. We would definitely stay again.

This campground is located just minutes from the Minnesota Zoo and just a short distance from I35E. This is a great campground with paved roads and level, gravel sites. There are three loops but only one with full hookups. This is a very popular campground and advance reservations for anything other than a short midweek stay are a must. If you want to stay over a summer weekend you probably need to book in March or April. We enjoyed the campground and appreciated the short distances to everything from Mall of America to the Zoo (practically within walking distance) to other sightseeing attractions. We also appreciated how well kept the park is. We've been in lots of places that could take lessons from the staff at Lebanon Hills. People traveling with children might want to pick the east loop rather than the full hookup west loop. The east loop has electric only but has a very nice playground at its center. The north loop is dry camping and even the showers are a bit of a walk. Being that this is a really nice campground in an urban area you might deal with some sticker shock on the price, even though it is a county park. The price I listed includes the registration fee and taxes. Our TV found many local channels and I had no problem getting the satellite signal. Our Verizon 4G signal was a usable 1-3 bars. If you can plan ahead, this is a very good Minneapolis camping option. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

County park with campground at the edge of small town. Quiet. Sites for large rigs and separate primitive sites in the woods. Paved roads and gravel sites with grass between. FHU sites are open sky. Long level back in sites. Staff friendly and helpful. Good for travelers and big rigs. Note; Don't check in before 1 pm, strict rule and narrow entry road, allows departing rigs to leave by 11. Office at far end of park so must drive in all the way thru past sites to register. Not a resort but would stay there again. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park with plenty of green space between RV's. Very good hiking and biking trails. No real access to the lakes that we noticed, but several water areas are viewable on the sides of the paths. Camp store was nice. Good proximity to the Apple Valley area, zoo, etc. with many restaurants and shopping nearby. We would stay here again if in the area.
