Quiet, heavily treed, with huge sites spaced well apart, this park is a perfect getaway. Level, wide concrete pads, 50A power and water, with a convenient dump station at the exit. Fire rings and free firewood, large table, a short walk to the Mississippi River.

Good WiFi, acceptable Verizon cell/data, and while there is no cable or clear area for satellites, we received nine OTA channels. Very quiet post, and except for the mosquitoes, a perfect place to spend a day or two. We camped at DeParcq Woods (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A short drive to Little Falls and a Super Wal-Mart. The Charles Lindbergh home and museum is well worth a visit.

Military/Civil-Service affiliated - need gov ID to get on post. Check in at billeting office - on right, straight in main gate. Nice folks on desk. Level concrete pads - 15, accommodate any size rig. Water/50a/30a. Got 13 TV stations. Free WiFi throughout post - notebooks work fine at campground. ATT. Toilets/showers great. Free washers/dryers four locations on-post. Campground right on Mississippi River. Big trees/shade/quiet. Good place to get away - but not too far, or place to hide from wife. We camped at DeParcq Woods (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Kick back and ignore the world. Or get a good nites rest if on the road. Well worth deviating from interstate stop-overs. Truly a bargain.

This is campground #1 on the Fort Ripley Military training camp. It is available to military personnel, active or retired. It is located right next to the Mississippi river and has lots of shade, but at this time has no hookups. Large concrete pads at each site and antenna tv reception is ok if you have a generator. Not a lot to see in the local area, but we stayed here for a visit to Minneapolis and St. Cloud. Looks like they were going to put in water and electric but ran out of money. They hope to finish it by 2010. Great campground if you don't need all the extras and quiet except for reveille at 0600. We camped at DeParcq Woods (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
