Nice park with widely spaced sites. Many sites are not level enough for our auto level to work. We moved three times to find a site where we could level the rig. Once leveled and hooked up, very nice. It was a good thing the park was mostly empty; would have been a disaster if it were full. The state park reservation system leaves a lot to be desired. You can reserve a site online but someone can drive in and fill out a reservation card and park in that spot and you have no recourse. No lights at night; very dark with clouds or no moon. All sites are back-in. Can be a challenge given all the trees and signposts.
The state requires a $5.00 per day sticker on all vehicles entering the park so that should be added to the price. - Bojangles

Very nice setting near Itaska Sate Park. Sites well spaced and long back-ins. Good road within park. Quiet. Well maintained. All sites are full hookup. Good shade but many spots (1 thru 8) will allow satellite reception. Most sites slightly un-level gravel. About 30 minutes to Bemidji and 10 minutes to Itasca state park. We will be back. - Max21

The rate reflects an electric-only site. We stayed here one night so we could visit the headwaters of the Mississippi in Itasca State Park. We didn’t do much more than eat and sleep here, but it was a pleasant stay with a friendly host. We were by ourselves in a big green open space. It was easy to park our 40 foot fifth wheel. Not a fancy park with lots of amenities, but we were here to see Itasca State Park, not to swim or ride go carts. We discovered one day at Itasca is not enough, and we'll definitely be back and stay here again. - grizzlybear

Extremely quiet park just outside the north gate to Lake Itasca State Park. Nothing fancy but grass between spaces which had room between them, full hookups and our 40 foot RV fit fine in the back-in space. We could get satellite which isn't always available up north with all the trees. Verizon cell & air card were good. Extremely nice people running the place. Lots of room to walk the dog and not be on top of other people. They came over the morning we left to thank us for staying there. I'd definitely come back if wanting access to the state park. - Danni

We picked this park for its proximity to the North Entrance to Lake Itasca State Park. You can ride your bikes to the headwaters without a fee. The park is good for a couple days to visit the park, nice grass, and wide sites. The bathrooms are clean but very dated. The people working at the site were very friendly. We would stay here again. - User755

Large park outside of town, probably crowded during the season but nice and quiet for me after Labor Day. Lots of activities during season. Wifi weak. - ldukeb

We stayed here about 6 years ago and it seems like they've made improvements since our last stay. Not that anything was wrong on our first stay.
Wifi worked well. They have added a new (large) K9 pet area. Staff is friendly and they have someone to escort you to your site. The park has a security gate so if you plan to go out for the evening, you'll need the code to open the gate.
They have souvenirs and supplies in the store/office. Nice park and we'd stay here again. - 69636

Overall, a decent park. This is an older KOA as stated by others...aren't they all nowadays? The mgt. was friendly, professional and helpful. The park, though older, is kept clean. Sites are gravel and grass and ours was relatively level. Utilities worked fine and it had the best cable yet encountered. Hardly any other campers here so space was not an issue. Traffic noise from Highway 2 is present in the daytime but diminishes to nothing in the night. An airport is very close but the same applies noise wise. Overall, if visiting Bemidji area, I'd come back here again without reservation. - TPDBOB8687

The rate noted is for a 50 amp hookup site. It does not include the required daily entry fee or purchase, as we did, of an annual pass for motorhome and towed vehicle for $43 per year.There are two campgrounds in this park, Pine Ridge with 158 sites and Bear Paw with 81 sites. They are about three miles apart; we stayed at both since we could not get a single site for the time we wanted to stay. Be aware that, although the address of the park is Park Rapids, it is about 25 miles north of the town. Both campgrounds are heavily wooded, with Bear Paw having more vegetation for visual separation and a calmer feel; Pine Ridge is very open with no visual separation. Bear Paw is along the lake and a few sites have glimpses of the lake. Both campgrounds are very busy and full during prime season as this is one of the states premiere park with lots of things to do. In Pine Ridge we had 50 amp hook-up; the power either went out or browned out once or twice per day during our visit. At Bear Paw we were dry camping. Fill water for tanks is at the single dump station at Bear Paw. It is very busy since there is only this one dump for all 231 sites! Most sites were fairly level dirt/gravel. After a heavy rain, our site became a swimming hole, almost. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. In planning, take into account the 4 p.m. check-out time. - TheJim

Nice park but very busy. Stayed here for a family reunion at the Ozawindib group camp. Wish we had brought our bikes!
Some of the main roads accessing the park (east entrance and road to Pine Ridge campground), need to be brushed so you don't brush against tree limbs every time you meet another vehicle. It is a shame that the park does not check this out!
Our site was good and had good separation. Electric only, so be sure to get water and dump tanks. One spigot we found to fill tanks did not have any threading on it so had to find another one. - BoatEscape

This state park is absolutely beautiful. It is well used but still kept very clean. We camped in the Oak and Spruce Loops. A paved trail takes you to the lake front where you can enjoy the lake, swim, fish, and rent bicycles and boats. There is a nice sand beach with shallow water and a sand bottom. The lake is gorgeous. It is shaped like an inverted "Y", and each arm is very thin, so you can see the green forest on the other side. The headwaters of the Mississippi are at one end of the lake. The water is shallow there, so you can wade and take your picture walking across on stepping stones.
The campsites have electricity only. Some of the water sources along the road are set up for you to fill your tanks, others are not. The dump is in the Bear Paw campground a mile or so away. The campsites are spacious and widely spaced. Ours was level.
There is lots to do here. Bring your bicycles, everyone gets around on bikes. There is an extensive paved trail system for bicycles throughout the park. There was a very nice playground on our loop that was always full of happy children. If you get tired of doing things, you can always just sit back and enjoy the peace. A very lovely spot. - ShoreXplorers

This is a small resort campground with 3 overnight sites that have a beautiful view of Lake Plantagenet. The park is well managed, clean and attractive. The overnight sites are in the middle of the park close to the cabins, pool, bathroom, laundry and office. The park has a nice beach on the Lake with many water toys available for customers. They also have rental boats and pontoons available and bait for sale for fisherman. Bemidji has lots to offer and it is not far from the park. RV's park on sand with a grass area for the picnic table and campfire ring. Water, cable, electricity and sewer are appropriately located on the left side of the trailer. Sites are fairly level. Sites are close together. The owners are friendly and willing to help Verizon 4G cell coverage was excellent. WiFi is available in the Lodge and in the cabins. The Wi-Fi was not usable in our RV site. The standard cable worked well. The campground is located on a very quiet road so noise was not an issue. The pool is smallish but it is heated, fairly new and beautiful. 3% add on if you use a credit card. We would stay here again. - StillBill
