This was our first visit to El Rancho. There were fun planned activities for our children, however the campground itself was not very kid friendly. Very small playground only for very little children. The swimming beach got very crowded with other campers. The campground itself was too large and spread out, not an easy walk to the main lodge. It was nearly impossible pushing our jogging stroller because the roads were so sandy. Therefore our older children couldn't use their scooters or bikes because of all the sand and unevenness. The campsites we and our other party had were very uneven. We had full hookups but the campsite was so tight and uneven it was hard to empty our tanks at the end of the stay. Neither us or the other party we camped with had picnic tables either. So we are our meals separately in our own campers - Jberg82

Nice setting, with relaxed feel. Some of the sites were tight and uneven. Horse riding was expensive, but kids enjoyed it. You can also walk the horse trails but not real smooth. Overall we enjoyed. - RVP CAMPER

Ours was a single overnight visit while traveling. While far from physically ideal for overnights, this is an amazing campground basically directed to horse-campers, trail hikers, small boat fans, and family outings of more than one or two nights. For those uses, our scoring would be two steps higher. The facilities are rustic but well-maintained. The staff is friendly, helpful, and very concerned that one enjoys one's visit. Our stay was at the end of the season, and the campground was largely empty. We would have no hesitation about visiting again. - nasa42a

Our camping club, the MN Going Gophers, held their fall camp out at Two Rivers this year. We had 16 units in attendance so we got a group discount. While the nightly rate is on the pricey side in the summer, it's very reasonable before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. The staff was very accommodating and helpful with making the arrangements and while we were camping. An employee stopped by during our stay just to remind us that the pavilion was available if we wanted to use it and to see if we needed anything. The campground is beautiful with lush, green grass, large level sites, and well maintained buildings and landscaping. The lower campground is surrounded on three sides by the two rivers. Every site in the lower campground has a good view of the rivers and there are many sites right on the river shore. The upper campground does not have a view of the rivers but is closer to the office, pool, pavilion, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and it's a short walk down to the rivers. There was a small pine tree on our site that prevented us from backing in far enough to park our truck in front of the camper, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to open the awning. We were able to park the truck perpendicular to the camper though so it wasn't a problem. One unusual feature of this campground is that they have a security gate. You have to pay $20 for a gate card and register every vehicle with the office. You get the $20 back when you check out. This was a little inconvenient when a member of our group arrived early Saturday morning but couldn't get in the gate. Even when her husband, who had a gate card, went to let her in, an employee noticed and said she couldn't go in because her car wasn't registered with the office and the office didn't open until 9:00am. There is a large parking lot next to the office that she had to leave her car in. - Juniper94

Overall very satisfied with this park. Staff was generally friendly except for a couple of people working the pool area. Sites were great. Layout of the campground was ideal. Very level and spacious. Nearby river offered plenty of activities. Tubing was fun. Beach and pool were well maintained and the kids loved both. Mini golf was a well maintained course, but cost extra. Camp store had the bare minimum. Nearest store of any significance is 20 minutes away, so bring what you need. Several minor details to keep in mind. 1) Campground was difficult to find. Signage was not easily visible, with grass and weeds covering most of the sign and GPS was not helpful. Trying to find it in a downpour in a big rig with a tow in farm fields was challenging. Office staff was not answering phones to guide us in. 2) Shower houses, although clean, were limited. There are only two for the entire camp with one toilet and several showers in each. Plan ahead if you have to use it! Its a hike! 3) Advertised WiFi was essentially non-existent from our site. Didn't bother us, but be aware. Despite these inconveniences, we would definitely stay again. Perfect for a long weekend away with the kids. - mm1407

Great place! Very well kept! The only thing I wish was different was that you have to pay for mini golf, tubing, etc on top of what you pay for your site. - H Family

This is a good size park with about 99 sites. We were able to get in on a Friday night - They were full but the nice owners put us in a site away from the main part of the park. We did have electric and water but no sewer at this site. It was on grass and not clearly delineated as to the boundaries of our site but that was not a problem. The wifi was quite good and free. We had good Verizon phone and 4G LTE signals. The restrooms were just OK - I don't think I would shower there. There are a lot of long term residents there and it appears to be very popular on the weekends for families. The long term resident sites were well kept for the most part. The over the air tv signal was very good (close to St. Cloud) but we also had a lot of room to set up our satellite for Direct TV and that was good as well. The road in to this area was quite narrow - I felt in peril of hitting some large trees. The gentleman who led us to our site took us in a direction that made was quite close to those trees - he could have led us in a different way that would not have been so bad. For our exit we had to go around the park because they have a sign placed in a very bad place to make the right turn to go out. We were in site 91. It was actually nice to be away from the rest of the park as it was nice and quiet and no smoky fires by us. We just stayed one night but would stay here again if in the area - and we would request one of these sites away from the crowd. It is very close to gas and grocery too. - NiMo

Camped here with a large group. We had reserved a block of sites together many months in advance, but when we arrived they had moved us around and given away some of our sites. The Rally Center building is very nice and handy to use for group meals and gatherings, especially if it's raining. The restrooms in the Rally Center were very clean, but the light in them is very dim. The sites came with full hook ups and a pull through gravel pad, but they aren't very wide sites. The picnic tables are tiny. Each site has a sunken, small fire pit oddly located just a couple feet from the road, posing a hazard for anyone walking between sites, especially in the dark. There was a nice, large, fire pit in a large open area across from our group's sites that we were able to use. There is a pool but it is closed this late in the year. Aside from a couple of minor nuisances, all in all a pretty decent camp ground. - Juniper94

50 amp, FHU, pull-through site. Very nice, well maintained park. Many OTA TV signals available, WIFI sporadic at times. Escort to site. Although this is a nice place it is somewhat pricey for an overnight at $42 including taxes and with a discount at that. I doubt we would return if a less expensive option were available in the area. - Bob & Stephanie

This is a hidden gem if your passing along I-94 and need to stay overnight. 50 amp & Water for $15/night pay box at campground. Right along the banks of the Sauk River, river sites only have 20 or 30 amp there are 4 sites with 20, 30 & 50 amp, next to ball diamond. One pedastal for every two sites, so some utilities on opposite side of most trailers or RV's. No checkout time, no reservations, 7 night maximum stay. Nice grassy park with gravel pads, level sites. The four sites by the ball diamond are big rig accessible. No sewer hookups, but a nice dump station is available. Verizon data speed 3.34 mbps. Able to get satellite TV reception at our site. - dmkimm

Very nice wooded sites. Lots of privacy. It was kind of inconvenient to have to cross a highway to access the baseball field and beach. There is no RV camping on the lake side, just tents. Very strict on quiet times, almost too strict. There was no complaints on us, but the manager came twice to tell us that we needed to be quieter. We were just sitting around the campfire talking, not being loud at all. Lots of games to keep the kids busy. We didn't go on any hikes, but there were numerous trails to go hiking on. Very nice campground, just remember to keep it to a whisper at quiet times. We would visit here again. - Kristine Birkholz

Stayed here a few weeks ago. It started off with an awful smell in the office upon checking in. Things did not get much better. The place is very run down. It is overloaded with seasonals that are run down, and there is junk everywhere. They need to cut back the branches of most trees to prevent trees scratching your camper. Site was level. People party all night here. We will not be back. - jejmjj5

What is with all the terrible reviews? It also appears many of the reviews are for another campground in the area because AJ Acres doesn't even have a pool. I wouldn't believe what you are reading on here because it seems many of the reviews are not for this campground but rather a different campground in Clearwater. For some clarification, YES this campground has dirt roads, when it is dry they can be dusty and when it rains they can be a bit muddy, but you are camping-if you want tar and concrete camp in your backyard. No pool but a large beach. It is camping you will encounter dirt and bugs. You don't want it get a hotel. This is a great place to camp but be prepared to CAMP!!! They have amenities so it isn't like you are roughing it. Water, electric, fully stocked store, beach, bait, fishing pier, shower houses, swing sets, etc. Not first class like a resort but great for a family weekend out of the city to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. We camped here several times a year and keep coming back. - campit

We decided not to stay here once we had a conversation with the lady at the front desk. We stopped in at about 8PM just looking for a place to park and sleep and be on our way by 8AM the next morning. The individual was very rude and really didn't want us to stay. It was if it was to much work and when she gave me the price for 7 people she had the nerve to say you might as well stay at a hotel because it will be cheaper. From the outside things looked nice but if that is how people in Minnesota treat people passing through, - Cudpal

An overnight stop. All utilities used and all worked well. - Sewmom

Level gravel site. Just long enough for our MH and trailer. A tree between sites provided some shade. We needed to use our sewer line extension as the hook-up was at the very end of the site. Cost for washer/dryers was high ($1.75) but machines were clean and in good working order. Laundry room itself was clean and decorated. We stayed 3 nights and our one criticism would be the dog walk area. They have a perfect area for a fenced park but no real area exists now. - Boomerific

Hard to get a campground in this area. Weekends impossible!
The mgr said, well it's a short season and the locals camp every chance.
So this appears to have been a KOA and barely maintained. Sites have not been leveled for awhile. Hookups are far from middle, so my 35' electric cord was enough.
Locals let their kids run wild at night until we yelled at them to go to their site.
Got up this morning and someone let their big dog poop at the front of our site and not clean up.
Will not see us again! But when you are sold out, do you think they care? - Sir_Charles395

I stayed here for two nights while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with a tow car. Smaller state park gifted to state by Lindbergh's family after his historic flight -- it was the family farm on the Mississippi River. Lindbergh House and Museum are across the street from the park. Two loops -- a 15 site electric loop and a 22 site primitive loop. Set up is a little weird. The water/dump station is to the right of the electric loop. If you fill up with water you have to circle around the primitive campground or by the bath house and come back down to enter the one way road into the electric loop. The problem is that from that direction the angle into the one way road was too sharp for me to make the turn and I ended up having to drive out of the park (there was no turn around loop at the front of the park) and turning around up near the city and coming back into the park. This wasn't just me -- I watched someone with a pick up and large trailer who ended up doing the same thing. There is no issue if you don't have to fill up with water first or if you have a small camper. Sites themselves are nice -- very wide gravel with dirt and separated from other sites by thick trees -- in fact the whole campground part of the park is in deep forest. There are indeed a LOT of mosquitos. The trails are wonderful -- well maintained (a few boggy areas but nothing impassable), well marked, and mostly through the forest and along the creek -- but again -- bring your insect repellent. I can't imagine the park ever feeling crowded even when full. Very quiet and secluded feeling. Verizon worked well. - SoloRed

I did a drive thru of Crow Wing and Lindbergh parks to see if I would like to stay. I have a smaller travel trailer and I don't think my TT would fit in any of the sites. Again, this campground was designed for tents, teardrops and pop ups. The sites were somewhat spread out, low on grass and high on mud after rain storm. A bonus is the campground is small, so less noise. In the city of Little Falls, so supplies are near. I will likely pass on staying here as other parks are so great. Please check out this campground for yourself as I did an eyeball assessment, which isn't fair. I will continue to watch reviews. - brendajoro

I was there for the fall color. Absolutely awesome. Very few campers, great trails to walk, quiet and peaceful. There are no annoying lights. You can hear distant trains sometimes at night but they're far enough away to be cool. A river runs behind the camp sites and bridges on the trails to cross it. Enough conveniences locally to make it fun and interesting. All in all it was a great visit - Dead Mule John
