This is a beautiful park reserve and campground. The camp sites are large and grassy. There are enough bushes and trees between them to make them private, but not so dense that you can't get to the site next to you if you're camping with others. Sites 25 and 26 offer a view of a pond. The restrooms were clean although the shower floors and walls are stained yellow. There are lots of trails, playgrounds, a swimming pond, and volleyball nets. Wi-fi and cell signals are good. There are two downfalls to this park though. One is, they don't allow pets in the camp ground. This prevented my brother and his family from joining the rest of us. The second downfall is that Oakdale Gun Club is right next door. The sound of gun shots all day non-stop, all weekend, ruined the tranquility of the park. - Juniper94

This park is beautiful with hiking trails and a lake. The spots are wide and spacious and the electric was 50amp. Good cell service for both ATT and Verizon due to proximity to St. Paul. The only down side is they have a very strict pet policy. This was a non issue for us since we don't travel with pets but many people do. - Lee and Trace

Nice County Park with all the amenities. Great place for kids. Big sites fairly secluded. Easy drive into the cities. - GOTTOYS

This is a great park. Gravel sites, picnic tables, fire pits and grills. Sites are large and semi private. They have back in and pull thrus. Great for biking and walking. Big rigs are not a problem. - gmbmailbox

Arrived after hours because a different reservation fell through. The camp host was wonderfully helpful and the campsites were spacious. There are trees and tall grasses separating the sites so you might see one neighbor at most. As with most campgrounds in Minnesota there are mosquitoes everywhere. - Keystone Trail

Very nice park with large dog run area. Wifi only works close to the office. Fire ring is a truck wheel in a hole in the ground. A hazard in the dark. Eveything else was fine. - Bojangles

All-gravel park with usable wifi and water pressure. Heavily treed and on a bit of a slope, so those who need level ground will be frustrated. Our auto-leveling worked just fine. Very quiet. - The Hilts

Nice park. Nice management. Huge dog walk area. Pool was clean. Bathrooms and showers very clean. - Chuckster59

This park needs some serious work. Spaces designated for RVs are fairly haphazard. We plugged into an electric box that already had at least one RV plugged in with other cords coming out besides. Spaces very close to each other with very little room for parking a vehicle. Woke up every morning at 5:30 a.m. to the neighbor talking loudly/yelling to her (five--yes, FIVE!!) pitbulls while allowing them to relieve themselves behind our motor home and never once cleaning up after them. Bathrooms were scary--not private at all. Shower curtains hide the stalls with no doors on the bathrooms themselves. My husband went in the first morning to find the stalls in the men's bathroom covered in vomit. Park itself is in the great neighborhood of St. Anthony but inside the park is a different story. Very run down. Manager nice and does what he can but owners should hire more help! A few rules regarding age of units and pet restrictions would clean up this park in a hurry. Ridiculously overpriced considering we couldn't use the facilities at all. We only used the park for sleeping--didn't use bathrooms, laundry, etc. - desertrat74

Approximately 60% of the spaces are fulltime, low income residents. Though the majority are nice people, there are a few unsavory characters. The manager is a "Jack of all trades". He is a wonderful, caring person...but stretched between this and 2 other sites. Access to the site was acceptable. the original site they put us in did not allow us to extend our awning as we were literally 4 feet from campers on either side. We moved to another site, that allowed use of the awning and was approximately 20' from the unit next store.
We chose this facility because of its proximity to downtown Minneapolis and the fact that the public transportation stopped right outside the park. (We do not tow, so access to public transportation in an urban environment is a real plus. That and reliable, accessible power and water were the only positives! - Ncw

Many permanents, which creates noise in the AM when they leave for work. Some units have a bit of junk around them. The park office closes mid-afternoon and after that the manager must be called. He apparently has another full-time job but is very helpful and cooperative. Utilities were good. This is not a destination resort but should serve very well for a day or week or more. This is a very urban setting for a park but it is close to the center of town. We felt quite safe here and would definitely stay here again because of it's central location. - gene a

Rangers and staff at the contact station are very friendly and helpful. There are three campgrounds in the park 100 loop, 200 loop and 300 loop. The 300 loop is heavily wooded and the oldest of the three loops. 100 and 200 loops are much more open and are big rig friendly. Roads are paved and sites are gravel. Water fill is at the dump station outside the 300 loop. Easy in and out of the dump station. Our site was a pull thru with electricity in the 200 loop. Site was quite level and was long. The showers are in the 100 and 300 loops. They are clean and the water was hot. Saw the rangers quite often out on patrol of the campgrounds. We would definitely stay here again. - Blu1e

We made reservations a month in advance. Upon entry, we were required to purchase out of state pass for motorhome at either $10 a night or $35 for a yearly pass in addition to nightly fee. There are three camping sections with some electric sites in each section with the only water and dump station at campground 300 which is 1 mile down hill from campgrounds 100 and 200. Interior roads are paved with sites level and graveled. Section 300 is the older, heavily treed campground that is not big rig friendly. 100 and 200 are big rig manuverable with little shade. Park rangers are very visible in all sections. - RJourney

Wisconsin State Park. There are three separate campgrounds. The older one is down the hill, and most sites in that campground are not large rig friendly. The two new campgrounds are on top of a bluff near a busy county road, but the sites are large and quiet. Some have some shade, but most are open. Park has a nice little lake, a stream with trout, a nature center, lots of trails and a spectacular waterfall. Park is about 20 miles from the Twin Cities. - William Custer

The campground was wonderful. Private and heavily wooded. A few of the sites are a bit hilly and difficult to back into with a long motorhome but doable. Seems that the Savanna side seems newer and sites are a bit more spaced apart than the Riverside camping area. Fabulous campground but the showers are in serious need of ventilation, painting and deep cleaning- preferably with bleach! Black mold and looks like green algae growing on the walls in the showers. - NanciRV

We love this place. Camp there every year. Lake Alice is a great place to swim and the trails are just perfect for new bikers. You can feed the sunnies in the swim area too and our grandkids love that. - Mobes

We came in for a week without reservation and found a very nice wooded site. Driving around the campground saw many sites that in my opinion were very large. (Michigan take note!) Minnesota is going to an all site reservation system beginning 1/1/2015 eliminating walk in sites making weekend camping plans without reservation almost impossible at popular parks. Nice bike trails and paths. The Riverway part of campground very close to river with nice path next to it. Nice staff. Would definitely return. - smitty12

It’s surprising that this campground has not been previously reviewed. It’s a backpack-in campground with 2 Yurts and four, electric with heat camper cabins. The hiking along the St. Croix River was so beautiful in the fall. People at the beach were in swimsuits and dipped their toes in the river. Temperatures in 80’s in late September brought out crowds for day hikes and picnics. The prairie grass and leaves were very colorful. We couldn’t believe how much noise that dry, falling leaves sound when they hit the ground. There are plenty of hiking and biking opportunities at this campground. Flush toilets are available in the visitor center or vault toilets throughout the campground. Note that there are no showers or ice available for purchase. The closest city is Afton, however the address lists Hastings on the website. We stayed in a camping cabin and will return. - brendajoro

Competent and friendly office staff.
Poor roads-don't have a clue of how to maintain.
Many sites not level- there is no excuse in this day of slideouts. Some power posts and sewer connections poorly located.
Could use some updates which I understand they will be doing. - Nick2

Rate reflects monthly stay at $450 a month. Electricity is metered. Laundry available onsite for $1. Also a laundrymat north on 65 with more washers. Nice quiet campground. We stay here every summer for 2 - 3 months. Office staff is pleasant and efficient. - Da Keeffes

Excellent campground, except the water contains a great deal of iron. Good sites and well-maintained. - Dr-Bsharp

This is a real gem of a park less than 30 minutes north of the Twin Cities. The sites are among the most generously spaced we've encountered, with lots of trees and foliage between. There are also some sites that are grouped together with less foliage between, suitable for a group with 2, 3 or 4 RVs. Most sites have water and electricity, and a large picnic table and fire pit were in all the sites. We felt that the price/night was very reasonable compared to campgrounds with similar amenities (power/water), and we saw many sites that would be big rig friendly (we were in a 32' TT).
Surrounding the park is a nice system of trails (both paved and mowed grass) for hiking and biking. The city of Coon Rapids is very close by (5 minute drive) if you need a store or other such amenities. Bunker Hills Regional Park (which houses the campground) also features houses riding stables, a disc golf course, a regular golf course, an archery range, and Bunker Beach water park. The park was quiet and well maintained and we enjoyed it so much that we have already booked to return here in a few weeks.
Of note, you do have to purchase either a day or annual park pass for Anoka County ($5/day or $25/year) in addition to your camp site fee, but we have found this to be common with state and county parks. - Canadian in Minnesota

Very nice, quiet campground. Lots of shade. Very friendly attendants. Stayed one night. Would definitely stay again. Very concurrent to Minneapolis and St Paul. - SCFKansas

This campground is a nice little oasis in the metro area. You are close to everything yet you feel like you are out of town. Sites are spacious and most have nice shading. We were too early in June for Bunker Beach to be open which was a bummer but the trails were nice. - Lynz24

What a gorgeous park. The sites are large and the pull through sites have water. We will be back. - grdngrl

This is a large, well kept county run campground. Very comparable to many COE campgrounds we have stayed at. This is one of our favorite places for a quick local getaway, but there are some idiosyncrasies to the place that let you know the people in charge may not be in touch with the modern RV experience.
On our most recent visit we had a pull through that was very steep front to back. Once unhooked, in order to level our trailer the tongue was almost on the ground. Other sites have posts that mark each campsite placed precariously close to the pad, making backing or pulling into your spaces extremely difficult. And finally, they have a strict "no dog" policy for the campground, but dogs are welcome throughout the rest of the park and hiking trails. On this particular visit we felt the park host was somewhat overzealous in his enforcement of rules. On a midweek night, with the park virtually empty and not another camper within several hundred feet we were told our quiet campfire conversation was disturbing other guests. The next morning I was chastised for not having a paper tag with our check out date attached to our campsite marker. I had never received one, and was asked to stop what I was doing and drive to the front gate and obtain one. Once there, the same teenager that checked me in admitted that she forgets to give them out from time to time.
These things aside, it really is a wonderful campground located within a beautiful regional park. There are several miles of hiking trails, a modern boat landing, playgrounds, picnic shelters and other typical park amenities. - scott1k

Extremely large and neat sites all pull through in the modern campground area. Electric and Water only but very clean dump station, Site Z is on the corner looking into woods and field and we regularly saw deer walking through. There is a beach and boat access, along with conference centers, a playground, volley ball court, tennis court, and many other common areas. NO PETS are allowed in the campground (although we saw them in the boat dock area). It was largely empty the entire time we were there and the fellow campers were quiet and polite. My largest complaint was the office staff and campground hosts. They were not very friendly to "out-of towners" and complete sticklers for the rules. That being said, aesthetically it was a beautiful park, one of the nicest we have stayed in. There is no wifi, but my ATT coverage was good. The price is $25 a day and what is not very clear on their website is there is an additional per car $5 day access pass you have to pay for on arrival. (Reservations for the campground are done online.) The annual pass is $25 which you can purchase if your stay is 5 days or longer. They are also inflexible with their cancellation policy. We left a day early and even though we told them that at the beginning of our one week stay they were unwilling to refund us that day. You can stay in the park for one week but then need to move to another spot if you are going to stay longer. - Lee and Trace
