Stayed here for 2 nights as a convenient place to stay to see the local sites. It was your average KOA park, nothing special. Road construction down the road made access somewhat complicated if you were coming into town from the east. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We really loved this KOA. Gated, nice and roomy and our site #24 was one of the premium end sites and one of the biggest we've had in our two years of living on the road. The pool was nice and clean. There are two dog parks, one is nice and big and grassy for the dogs to run. Nice fire pit and picnic table at our site. The service was nice and friendly and when we ordered pizza at the office they told us to head on back to our RV and they would deliver the pizza since it was about to rain. Nice and close to everything you need - we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

While visiting Bemidji, be sure and walk along the lake downtown starting at the Paul Bunyan Visitor's Center. Its paved and lovely. Also drive to Itasca State Park and see the headwaters of the Mississippi River. Lots to do at this park including picking your way across the river on rocks or a log - a unique experience.

As a voyage KOA it's "family" atmosphere is somewhat diminish. Which was find for us overnighter. Nice folks. Well kept park. Last KOA $53 got us a muddy back in. Here $52 got us a long pull thru. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Large, grassy sites. Interior roads and sites are gravel and in good repair. All of the standard KOA amenities - pool, nice playground and enclosed Kamp-9 (two). Check-in quick and easy - nice/helpful staff. Some road noise but you're far enough that it really is only occasional and minimal. There is an airport near by but contrary to another post I read, I only heard a helicopter once and one plane. My site was huge and loved it. Would definitely come back. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground was a very relaxing place to camp near services and shopping, yet still near Lake Itasca and other natural sites. The campground was quiet, yet there were plenty of helpful folks around. The cable and wifi were good and useful for monitoring weather. The site was partly shaded, level, and not too close to neighbors. We stayed for two nights and had a good time. We would come to camp here again. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

The camp is very clean. Our site was a paved pad for our RV with solid grass around it. No mud. The WiFi worked fine. The pool, showers and rest rooms were spotless. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed here 2 nights in our motorhome. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

Basic KOA. Camp hosts were very nice, usual escort to site. Park is a bit dated and need of and upgrade. Roads narrow but easier to navigate than they look. All sites seem level. Water pressure good, no backflow preventers. Electric good. Full hookups near but vary from site to site. Very good cable with 50+ stations. Did not try WiFi. Verizon signal fluctuated on data but usable. Food can be delivered to your campsite. Pizza was decent. Small nice pool. Small camp store. Miniature golf outdated and need of repair. Two dog runs very small; not enough space to have a good run for rover. Be careful of the small bushes on some campsites, as they may scratch your slideouts, found we could just bend them out of the way. Park could be a bit better kept, some litter and such had not been tended to. Could hear the highway noise but did not think it was bad. We had enough room for our 36' motor coach and toad, without disconnecting. The sites were more dirt than gravel, would be somewhat cautious if there is a good rain as it could be muddy. For this area this is a good camp for an overnight stay. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Typical KOA?- easy access, online reservations, escort to site, well maintained facilities, mostly level pull thru sites, utilities all worked fine, wi-fi adequate, dog run. In addition this KOA had a gated security entrance, nice large site with plenty of spacing between sites and hot food delivered to your rig. Our site had large trees that were well trimmed and did not create any problems. Yes this might be a typical KOA but what more could you want for a one or two night stay? We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Bimidji is a cute little town on a large lake. The headwaters of the Mississippi are about 30 minutes away and well worth the drive.

One of the nicer KOA that we've stayed in. Close to the hwy so lots of noise but quiets down at night. Your picks of nice campgrounds with full hookups in the area are limited. About a 45 minute ride to Lake Itasca Park and the headwaters. Very nice and friendly host. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here a few years back and vowed to never come back. Never say never, right? We were traveling with friends from out east, and decided to stay here as it was relatively close to places they wanted to see. We arrived on a Wednesday about 11:30AM, and except for a few campers, the park was not busy. We were informed check-in time was 1:00PM and we could either wait or pay an additional $10 to check in early. I've never experienced that policy in the past, so be it, we paid the $10 each plus tax and we were escorted to our site. The showers and restrooms were clean, as was the park as a whole. Our site was tight but level and were able to extend our awning. All in all, we enjoyed our stay. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Travel Trailer.
