Campground on a lake 10 miles from Bemidji. Dirt roads and grass sites with grass between. Not so long pull thru and back in sites with trees on east and west side of each site and open sky to south for Sat signal. All sites FHU. Wifi at most sites. Charge $3 per day for air conditioning and $4 day for Cable TV. Utilities in middle of site so measure distance for your electric cord before setting up. Direct access to lake for swimming and boating. Staff friendly and helpful. Sites close but OK for travelers and big rigs. Would stay there again. Cash only for Passport discount. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is nice right next to a chain of lakes. Owners are also very nice. The site was level with a good view of the lake but pretty tight. The weekend was busy and I had to move my truck so a 5th wheel could pull into the site next to me. The site was a pull in, back out. I'd never seen that before. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Kayaking, biking and hiking are all easily available. Be careful when they tell you to 'bike around Bemidji lake'. The are no signs to guide and you have to switch from road to trail to highway. Play house had an excellent play. The actors did an outstanding job. Visitors center in Bemidji was very helpful and provided a lot of good info.

If you are travelling through this area, or staying for some time, this is a must stop campground. The lake is beautiful and the park is extremely clean. Defiantly worth the short drive north of US 2. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice well cared for rv park. We've stayed here before and felt very confident in returning. Extremely friendly owner that took us right to our site. I recommend this park to anyone any where near the area. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an very nice family owned campground. The staff is awesome. We had a level site right on the lake. All utilities worked great and were conventially located. Site was spacious with plenty of room to park the tow. Lots of well kept seasonals that were used on the weekends. Swimming, boating and other activities going on. Small store and restaurant area. Easy access into and out of park. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park but out of town a ways. $22 is the Passport America rate but they charge extra for cable and AC/Heater. Well kept up. Nice view of the lake if you get the right site. Most lake-front sites are seasonals. Long grassy, level sites. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Really nice campground on a lake. Lots of seasonal campers, but the appearance of the campground is great and they have some sites for the transient campers. The back in sites by the woods are really nice. Not many lake view sites available for short term campers, but there are a few. Reservations are highly recommended for weekends, which are very busy with lots of families boating and swimming in the lake. Nice playground for kids. Good laundry facilities and clean bathrooms. The only thing keeping me from giving this park a 10 is they charge extra for A/C or heater ($3/day) and cable ($4/day). Otherwise, this is a great place to spend a relaxing week in the Bemidji area. Would stay here again. Rate shown reflects the PA rate (good for 4 nights). We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We wish we could have stayed here longer. It's a little out from town. The road into the campground is not paved, and a little narrow-looking. The grass is nicely manicured. There are seasonal sites that are just beautiful and transient sites that are quite adequately sized. Our mostly level site was not paved, but very wide and long. The ground was firm and not muddy even after some rains. Very nice lake. Unfortunately, our stay was cut short abruptly. The host was very understanding about that. The people who work here are friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if we had the chance. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Grassy, level sites and close together. We were lucky enough to receive a waterfront site (no additional charge), with a shade tree, for our 3 night stay. Cable $3/day additional. A few miles north of Bemidji, but well worth the drive. We used Passport America and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

$25/night w/4 nights on PA discount – On Fox Lake with free use of paddle boats and other rentals available. People are nice and you pay as you leave, so you can run a tab if you like. You are about 15 minutes to town and the sights with plenty of shopping and restaurants. Roads are gravel and sites are grass some can be narrow – the seasonal people have the view of the lake and do not talk with overnight campers. There is a little road noise, but not much. Laundry was small with 2 washers and 2 dryers – there is a small boat launch and small fish cleaning shed next to the bathhouse. Wi-Fi worked well and the cable was basic – water pressure and electric were good, but they charge for AC I guess in the summer. We would stay here again. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

The well-kept and family friendly park offers level grass sites that are easy to navigate in spite of being very close together. Utilities were good, the park’s Wi-Fi and cable TV were reliable and AT&T phone/data signals were strong. The park has a lot of seasonal and permanent residents. There is a nice playground and beach; a canoe, kayak and paddle boat are available free to guests. The rate reflects a Passport America discount. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I don't usually review parks that already have several recent reviews but this park deserves it. Friendly people, excellent value for the money, and sites that are pretty easy to get in and out of. Each site has a firepit of some kind, either in ground or above ground. The lake is a little weedy looking, but there were people out there enjoying the water. There are canoes etc., available to campers free of charge, a nice touch. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Had no complaints so 10 is based on my experience; it was a great stay. Stayed over Memorial Day weekend (three nights) in a 24 foot rig. Got a great site with shade tree along the lake. (Only a few with shade along the lake, so I'd recommend requesting if they can accommodate.) Had a picnic table and fire pit. Convenient location; only 10 minutes quick and easy from Downtown Bemidji. Owners were on site, very friendly and helpful. Pet friendly. Campground is a mix of seasonal trailers with plenty of open sites that accommodated motorhomes, fifth wheelers and tent camping. All seasonal people we met were friendly. Credit Cards not accepted, so bring check or cash. Store had essentials. Would stay here again. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park and nice owner. Marked a 7 because the sites are uncomfortably close for us. And, you pay when you leave and we were not told about the added charges when we checked in. So ask. We asked what it would be when we checked out, but that's not what it was. We would stay here again. We camped at Fox Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
