6 RV Parks near Ashby, Minnesota

Very convenient off of Exit 77 on I-94. A nicely kept facility, very clean bathrooms with plenty of hot water (key required to gain entry). 2 showers each in both men's and women's washrooms. Very large grassy manicured field for leashed dogs to stretch their legs. Friendly staff/operators. Free WiFi. Nice playground set with patio table nearby. Trees among pull-through RV sites provide shaded areas. They have the RVs pull in facing opposite directions next to each other so your passenger sides are open to each other as opposed to your outside camping area facing the "backside" of your neighbor. Your picnic table is next to your neighbor's. Standard spacing between RV sites. Our particular RV site did not have a fire ring, just a picnic table, but most or all tent sites had fire rings and water. I did not notice if there was an outside sink to wash dishes or whether laundry facilities were available. Adequate for a quick overnight stay and our needs. - Winnie View Sprinter

We arrived here at about 7:00pm on Friday night before Memorial Day without a reservation. Had no trouble getting a spot with full hookups, although these are limited. Full hookup sites are close together but level and very adequate. They do not, however include a fire pit. Bathrooms/showers are immaculate. View of the lake is beautiful. The owners are very friendly and right there for whatever you need up until 9pm each day. They also maintain a small store of items for sale including firewood. There is a small playground area for children but not much else to do but relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Only stayed one night on our way to Theodore National Park but would definitely stay again. - Otterbandits

Be aware that you pull off the ramp when traveling north/ west and its almost an immediate turn into campgrounds. Great little campgrounds for overnight or a short stay. Very clean, well set up for pull thru site- no sewer hook up but dump station is available. Great view and fresh air. We stayed overnight. Staff courteous and very friendly. - witchey1

27 E-W sites and 2 full hookups on lake shore. On an excellent fishing lake with many permanents. Very well maintained, neat park with some monster pull thrus with E-W only. Just two full hookup back in sites. Friendly check in and manager lives on site. Very quiet with good access. A little off the beaten path but I would stay here again. - run2

We recently rented an RV Lot for the season and have been very pleased with the resort. It's well-maintained and has a private beach, marina, shower house and fish cleaning house. We also received a dock slip with the rental and plan to use the lake all summer. Overall it's a very nice RV park. - AlexandriaMNRV

This campground has great potential. Good views of Pebble Lake and lots of wide open spaces. There is a separate area for tents and RVs. All sites can accommodate any size RV. The town of Fergus Falls is about 3 miles away. The main road into the campground and all of the sites are on packed gravel. All sites are back-in. None of the sites are level, some worse then others. The electrical box is shared between two sites. Within each utility box there are one 30-amp and four 20-amp outlets. The water spigots on most sites are located way in the back. You would probably need at least 50 feet of hose to reach the faucet. There are only two vault toilets for the entire campground. These toilets were probably designated for the bike trail head (Central Lakes Bike Trail). Wi-Fi, cable, showers, and a dump station are not available in this campground. Only one interior street light was working. The fee box is located at the entrance to the campground – no camp host on duty. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. No reservations so it’s first come – first served. It was very quiet at night. We would definitely come back here if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot rig. - adsaxs

On Thursday before Labor Day we were looking for somewhere to stay over the long weekend and found this park on RV Park Reviews. We called and were told that the park is first-come, first-served and that it was unlikely to be full on a weekday. We arrived mid-afternoon and picked site 8, probably the best site of the 14 electric sites, with good shade. By Friday evening, the electric sites were all taken. As good luck would have it, the other camper using the shared power pedestal only used a 20 amp connection, so we could use the 30 amp connection. The park is located right on the 55 mile Central Lakes paved rail-trail so that was convenient for us on our bikes. Also, the annual steam threshers' reunion at Rollag was only 50 miles away and is definitely worth a day or more. Electric sites are mostly back in. Although a big rig could fit in here, there may not be room for it plus a towed on the site. We saw a newspaper article indicating that the city will likely improve the park with proper restrooms (instead of pit privies), improved electrical service, and a dump station (none here now). We'd definitely stay here again due to the good bicycling opportunities. - Jay Rutherford

Beautiful city park. Not really "waterfront" sites but we camped up the hill from the lake. Nice view of the lake, only a park road and grass between us and the lake. Nice boat launch available. Very quiet when we were here. Access is past city play fields and bike/hike trail. Lots of nice looking tent sites. Most sites are relatively short. We camped here in a 31-foot RV. Backed up past the gravel pad onto the grass and were able to park truck in line with the rig. Hookups were at the rear of site. Overall a very nice experience. - SandyBBB

The campground was great. It was beautiful and had everything you could need. Didn't use the pool as it was chilly the weekend we were there. Our family was there at two campsites, one with a tent and one with a pop-up camper. I appreciate that it is a nice quiet family type campground but they were WAY too strict about everything! It did not make for a fun relaxing weekend. I would never stay here again due to how terrible they were. You can't have fun at all! We aren't crazy as we have a baby with us, but we still would like to have a campfire and spend time chatting with our family without being interrupted numerous times for ridiculous rules. - Meghan1314

Very clean, well kept park. Friendly staff. Escort to site. Not far from I-94 and close to Alexandria Shooting Park. Here for the state high school trap shoot. Hope to visit again next year. - Dan_S

The owners were very friendly, led us to our site. We had a pull-through, long enough for our 40' coach and toad. The campground is very well maintained. - Stan1

We stayed at site 149 in the Lower Campground. The Lower Campground is on the lake, and it is a gem. The boat launch is right next to the lower campground. If you have a boat you can beach it right at the lower campground.
This campground has both electric and non-electric sites, and are back-in sites. The sites all book up fast during the summer, especially the electric ones. You are only supposed to be able to book the sites one year in advance. Some folks have found a way to manipulate the reservation system by changing their dates after they make reservations. Point is, plan very early.
This park is one of the nicer ones in the state, and is within 9 miles of Alexandria, which will have all supplies necessary. A pretty well stocked convenience & liquor store (with propane) is only a mile a half away too.
The upper campground contains a mix of fairly open and nicely wooded sites, so make sure you know what you're reserving if you have a preference. The upper campground is not on the lake itself, but the boat launch is only about 1/3 mile away. Both campgrounds have hookups and nice showers & restrooms. There is also a dump station at the park.
The ranger station also has ice, firewood, and a few basics. Do not bring outside firewood into the park as it is banned. There is also a swimming beach, hiking trails, fish cleaning station, and dump site within the park.
If there is one drawback here, the extra parking gets tight when the campground is full. All in all, Lake Carlos is a really nice state park, just plan your summer stay early. - Nthernlgts

This was a very popular state park. Seemed like every slot was full. The site was clean and well laid out. We only stayed for one night but truly enjoyed this campground. We arrived late and the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly even though it was time for them to go home. - CO_Clarks

This park is a real gem, especially if you can get a lakefront site in the lower campground (reserve early). Well-kept, shady, spacious sites, though not too long, as with most state parks. Anything over 40 feet and we wouldn't have got our car on the site, though there was parking close. Sites are electric only (30 amp) or no hookups. Docks and ramp close, looked like fishing was good, though I don't fish. Nice hiking trails through the park - you can start right at the campground. Highway is fairly close, but it gets quiet at night. Good Verizon voice and internet service, despite being well out of town. - JA1800
