When we arrived they acted like they were mad at us because they messed up on our Reservation dates, They gave us an attitude and wasn't friendly the whole 2 weeks we were there. When we packed up to leave on the date they said they had us booked for again they got mad, stating they moved things around so we could stay, But who told us? No one. We were treated like outsiders and never felt welcome. But we decided to risk it and booked another reservation for the next year, only to find out our son was being shipped to Iraq and the only time we could see him before he left was our Reservation dates , So because we were one day late letting them know we were cancelling we were treated very badly , She hung up on my Husband after telling him, " She had to count the days!" Again no response came so when My Husband inquired about the deposit She said you were one day late so you don't get your deposit. Never will I stay there again and I will never recommend them to anyone. Very rude, very unprofessional, Not Friendly at all - Denisejohn

The owners are not oriented to a family group. They seem to have a disliking to children. Rules are created daily with the only interest of money in their pockets. Service is extremely poor for weekend and seasonal residents - ivy

Great COE park. As previously stated you are not on the lake. Sights have plenty of room. Interior roads are paved. Sites are gravel. Our Verizon cell phone service was spotty though. Roads feel tight but we got through with our 40' motorhome with no issues. - jprisbe

We spent 2 nights here. Used as a lay-over for a trip further west.
Campground was very nice. Many trees, but open underneath. Large sites and space between. Paved roads with gravel pads. Very quiet. Most people here to boat/fish so are gone during day.
Restrooms were clean, but did show some signs of use - marked up stalls, etc. There is one shower building and additional vault toilets throughout campground.
We were disappointed that you are not on Leech Lake. You cannot even see it from the campground. You are located on a channel/river and the open lake is some distance away (> 1 mile). No swimming at campground.
There during July 4th week, and the vendor for firewood did not have any available for purchase. Had to order, but they delivered to site. But it was wet and green wood. - Browndogs2

Stoney Point has a very high number of seasonal sites, most of which appear to have been occupied for many years. Also has a number of rental cabins for those without an RV/Park Model trailer. All sites were in excellent condition, and maintained to a very high level. Resort features a double canal/harbor with boat docking/rental available.
Huge beach with swim area filled with giant inflatables for kids.
This was after Labor Day, so resort was at low eb. With the huge number of sites, it may be a different story on busy summer weekends.
Staff were all pleasant and accommodating, although disorganized and some untrained. They were more used to dealing with customers that were already familiar, as there was little information shared at check-in. We had to figure out on our own by walking around where the bathrooms were, laundry, that there was a pretty decent restaurant on property, etc. Store is primarily a heavily stocked gift shop Only beverages available. Only a mile or two from a full grocery, so this is not a big issue.
We rented a premium site located on the main small canal. Gravel, with an old concrete "patio" pad. Sites are old, so have gone out of level over the years. Site was back-in, and took a fair bit of backing and filling to get into.
No cable TV - only local limited over the air. Free Wi-Fi limited to the main building. $25 per week fee for slow campground Wi-Fi.
Many extra charges - pet fee, docking fee, boat launch fee, extra tent fee, etc.
Overall, good to very good facility, but potentially crowded, that seems overpriced for the RV'er/Camper. OK for a night or two. For longer stays, better to choose a real cabin resort for only a bit more, and leave the RV at home, or use the very nearby Forest Service campgrounds, if you can get by with limited/no hookups. - Flapper

A lot of seasonal and full time units. Nice beach. Lots of kids, fires and bugs. Beautiful sunsets. We stayed here 13 years ago and boy has this place changed. We were put in the middle of the resort and there was a lot of traffic and again, lots of kids. - Butcherboy13

Really enjoyed our stay here while visiting the area. Be sure to book well in advance for summer stays, there are great sites near the beach. Lots of seasonal campers so the park gets very busy during the weekend, and the older section of the campground is tight, so be careful if selecting a site near the front. The beach area was fantastic, great playground, lots of grass and a sandy beach that had clear shallow water. Restaurant on site as well as boat rentals, marine gas, canoe rental, etc.... Lots to do without leaving the resort. We'll definitely come back to Stony Point but we'll book far in advance to get a great site and we'll stay longer. - pokeyt

5% seasonal with about 13 campsites,6 pull throughs and the rest back-ins. Trees on both sides, so only a couple work good with slides, but length is not a problem. Located on Leech Lake with nice covered dockage. The pool is heated and warm. Very friendly owners and seasonal people. Campground is very clean and well maintained. Would definitely stay here again! - MN Snowbirds

This park purportedly accepts Good Sam and Passport America. Their website indicates you can only use Passport for 2 nights but the Passport website says Sun-Thurs and does not mention a limit. When we checked in, I indicated that we had Good Sam and Passport America. We stayed 2 weekend and 2 week nights. The woman brushed aside the Passport America and said it would be better to use Good Sam as it would apply to all nights. I took for granted that she was doing the right thing. As it turns out it would have been to our benefit to use the Passport, and I suspect she knew that. My bad for not saying something at the time but I tend to trust people. IMHO a bad business model. The interior roads are packed dirt with a bit of gravel. Most of the sites here are seasonal with about 19 sites for overnight campers. The seasonal sites are all very well kept and are quite spacious. The overnight sites are not that wide but are very long with half packed dirt/little gravel and half a hard plastic form filled with small pebbles. They appear to have some washout issues when it rains. You will track dirt around in your vehicles! The sites lean back and toward the driver's side. Even though the sites are long it's a bit of an effort to get level with larger RVs. The utilities worked okay although the breaker tripped when we ran all three A/Cs at the same time. There is quite a lot of rust in the water that was apparent even with filters. There is some grass and small trees between the sites but they are pretty close and there is no privacy. Each site has a picnic table and firepit. There is a nice pool and various games like volleyball and shuffleboard. Directv satellite worked fine. Verizon had 4g with 3 bars. We were able to get on their WII FI with our extender; however, it would go down for no apparent reason several times a day for an hour or more. There is some noise from 371 but it's very quiet at night. We camped here in a motorhome and probably would not return. - Free

Lady in office was very accommodating and calculated two night max PA discount versus Good Sam and gave us best rate. Park is about 4 miles from Walker stores and Super One foods. About a dozen sites are pull-through and exclusively for overnighters and short term stays. These pull-through are very long and will accommodate any size rig and also are very spacious and open (satellite friendly). The back-in sites also were spacious and seem to be open to the southern sky and I would assume would be satellite friendly. Laundry had two washers and dryers which were $1.50 (I believe) and had 45 min dry time which was plenty. Cable only had 11 channels but covered the main local NBC, CBS, ABC, and FOX stations. WIFI was hard to connect to. Never could connect to the closest towers with strongest signal but occasionally could connect to weaker signal towers. Park was convenient to Itasca State Park and lake Eastern entrance with Southern entrance return through Walker. Great paved bike trail at entrance to park. - ojnark

Sites are level, gravel, and long enough for even the biggest rigs and tow, Quiet setting. All services, 50 amp, sewer, and water worked well. Bathrooms were clean and showers roomy. Bring the bikes, there are great trails from here. We would stay here again. - Vagabondtayls

Lovely campground on Leech Lake. This is a Chippewa National Forest Campground. Sites are roomy and spacious. It is very shady. It is close to Walker, MN and the bicycle trails. The bathrooms were not cleaned regularly or well. The more important problem is very low voltage. We spoke with the Forest Service people and it is old wiring and at the "end of the line". Weekends were the worst. We would NOT stay here again for that reason. - ouachita princess

There are lots of trees in this campground, so not much sun gets through in the daytime and you won’t get reception on your satellite TV. The sites on the outside of the campground loops are large, but the inner loop sites are a bit cramped. Also, if there is a lot of rain, several of the sites on the outside loop become flooded. The campground is on Leech Lake and there are two mooring harbors for boats, so if you are staying several days, there is no need to take your boat out of the water every night. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount. - Bobbi1948

Great Forest Service Park on a point in Leech Lake. Very shady sites which help cut down on wind coming across the lake. Some sites have beach access and some are on water front. Small campground with a boat launch and has two small harbors where you can tie up your boat. The campground roads are paved and the perfect size for kids to ride bikes and enjoy themselves. The sites were well spaced and most of them were very private. - wildcat63

Passport America price was $14.50. Very nicely landscaped lot next to hotel/restaurant, but also right next to the highway/main street. Utilities very good. Sites are level and all are approximately 50 foot pull-through. No office on site. Transactions done via phone according to the owner who just happened to be on site this particular day. - Full-Time Roamers

We stayed here two weekday nights. All sites are FHU with good cable TV (60+ channels) and Wi-Fi. The previous reviews are all pretty much on the nose concerning this park: gravel lot with grass and a cement patio between the sites; flowers and lamppost at each site. I found the lamppost to be a negative as it was too bright at night and forced me to use added shading for the bedroom windows. As noted, you can use the bathroom and shower in the motel pool area. While here is no laundry in the park or motel, there is a laundromat in town. In addition to being able to walk to all the shops, stores, and restaurants in town there is a very nice lakeside city park (beach, tennis and basketball courts, boat launching area, picnic areas, etc.) at the other end of town. This park is about 1/2 a mile from the RV park. - Jerry S

This is a great little park right at the edge of downtown. You can walk to downtown in several minutes. We ended up staying here since the park we were supposed to stay for a week wanted us to stay in the worst site they had. So glad we saw this park on the way. It is next door to AmericInn and you can use their swimming pool, hot tub, and showers if you want. There are no restrooms in the RV park, but we use ours in the trailer anyway. This place is perfect if you don't need all the so called amenities that the so called 'resorts' in the area have which they charge a ridiculous fee for. This park is exactly what we look for when we are traveling. Water pressure is great and voltage is good. We would definitely stay here again. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is they have gravel streets and sites, but they are level. They have a small concrete patio, shrubs, and flowers at each site. They also have a small street light at each site. - zrxh14

Wow. Where do I start. This is a resort with cabins and campsites. They claim 5 transient sites but there are more. There are at least 30 sites with most of them occupied by seasonals. Each site either a concrete patio or a wood deck. Some have both. The decks come right up to your bottom step. Need to get used to that last step that disappears with the deck. Restrooms and showers are spacious and clean. It does not matter if you spend $1,000.00 a week for a cabin or $250.00 for a campsite, you are treated as an equal. Campsite delivery of firewood, ice etc. makes you feel like you belong. Great (small) beach for the kids with a water slide and trampoline. Very pet friendly. Dogs are allowed everywhere, even on all rental boats. This is a resort for fishing. After all, it is on Leech Lake. If you get a brochure, it it outdated. There is no snack shop or sandwich shop. They offer frozen pizza and ice cream bars. The only negative I can say is the sewer hook-ups are a little awkward on some sites. Mine was way too high out of the ground. I went to the office to mention it and a camp employee nearly beat me back to my site to cut the PVC down so my hose pitched correctly. There were other sites where the hook-up was at the ground and still above the RV's outlet. I would highly recommend Acorn Hill to anyone. We will be back. - Wydglide

This is a resort that caters mostly to people who want to fish. As it is on Leech lake. However, it is a great place for families that are not going to take the boat out also. They say they only have 5 RV sites, but we saw people coming and going all 3 days we were here, into other sites. So that was rather confusing. Now what a awesome place to be. Our kids (7 and 8) are still raving about it. Nice (but on the small side) beach with a big water slide going into the lake and a water trampoline, free kayaks and ducks that will come and eat bread out of your hand. Now when it gets too hot on the beach, they have a awesome indoor pool and hot tub, with attached arcade and exercise room. Only negative about this place is the biting flies, they didn't bother us too bad but they loved feasting on our dog. We had to put her in the camper a lot. And they staff is pretty laid back and get to stuff when they get to it. Our garbage can from the previous people wasn't picked up till a day after we arrived. So we woke up and had to pick up shredded garbage from the raccoons the night before. But all the positives totally outweigh the couple negatives about Acorn Hill. We will go back for sure. - bunny102

This is a large campground resort with many seasonal sites and 9 cabins. It is located on a chain of lakes which offer excellent fishing. Interior roads are dirt but are well maintained. The beach area is well maintained and is great for swimming. They have water toys available for use and a variety of boats, and pontoons that can be rented and bait and gas for sale. RV's park on grass and each site has a picnic table and campfire ring. Some sites offer full hookup and some only water and electric. Sites are fairly spacious, and you can put your RV anywhere on the site which helps one find a level spot. The owners are very friendly and willing to help. Verizon 3G cell coverage was passable, but the data speed seemed to flag much of the day. WiFi is available in the Lodge and elsewhere for a fee. The campground is located on a very quiet road, so noise was not an issue. This rate was for a water/electric site. We would stay here again. - StillBill
