Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $41.00
We stayed only one night as we were passing thru. One of the nicer KOAs we've stayed at in Minnesota. The positives: The staff was fabulous. The bathrooms and showers were clean. I loved the game room and TV room. There were plenty of activities to keep busy. Sites are gravel and level. The negatives: Some of the campsites were small, and too close together. Our neighbor's fire ring was right outside our trailer. We had a pull-thru site, but our trailer barely fit on it, and there was no room for our tow vehicle. For a pool that small, it didn't have much space at each depth level, so kids who are not strong swimmers didn't have much space to splash around. Hot tub is nice, but very small; only a max of 3 persons allowed. Trains were LOUD (and I live near an active rail line). Reminded me of the movie My Cousin Vinny...horns blasting at all hours and woke us up. Overall it was a nice place, but I don't know that we'll stay again. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice train at 2 and again at 4, was awakened both times. Bathrooms and showers clean and nice. Very secluded, gravel pads. Had trouble with satellite. Small hot tub. Overall acceptable except for train noise. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Duluth was great! Go down to the waterfront, neat shops and eateries. Take the north shore drive for breathtaking sea scales.
Easy access even though it is 13 miles south of Duluth. The drive to Duluth and the North Shore is easy. Nice, well kept park. Staff is very knowledgeable about the area and we got great tips. WiFi was some of the best we have experienced. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
The Minnesota Munger bike trail has a parking lot about 2 miles away. The bike trail is wonderful. The Scenic North Shore drive to Split Rock Lighthouse is a must. Also enjoyed the harbor cruise.

This is a pretty typical small KOA--expensive for what you get. They cram too many sites in the space available. If they would remove every other site, it would be fine. They have sites that are long enough to fit big rigs but only 3 sites are 50 amp full hookups, so call ahead if you need that. Sites were gravel and level. Wi-Fi worked well. Generally, it is easy in/easy out; however, a couple of limbs needed trimming and one telephone pole could pose a problem if you take the wrong path out of the park. AT&T had a weak signal and Verizon had a strong signal. The trains were pretty frequent during the day, thankfully less so at night. We'll probably stay somewhere else next time. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed staying at this KOA campground. The owners are very friendly and helpful, making sure the campground is well run. The pull though site that we were in was level, and as we were just passing through, we didn't have to unhook. The washrooms and showers are very clean in a new, modern building. TV reception was great for the main channels...more than enough for the night. WiFi was excellent at our site. Although there are tracks nearby we only heard a train once. The campground offers many activities throughout the year. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very small campground with a lot of tent sites. The RV sites are long with plenty of room between sites. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. Roads and sites are dirt and gravel. Showers and bathrooms are very clean. Our Verizon wireless Internet and cell phone reception was adequate. No cable reception, but our satellite worked fine. While here, we visited the Glensheen Historic Estate which is located on the shores of Lake Superior 5 miles north of downtown Duluth. Price was high since we only had 30 amp and water.

Located just a few miles from 1-35, thus fairly quiet. Some train noise, but not enough to be bothersome. Smaller sized KOA. Very clean and well taken care of. Interior roads are gravel. Sites are level with nice grassy areas with a table and sufficient room on sides and long enough for our RV and car. We were in a nice corner site #6 and had 50 amp full hookups and Wi-Fi, but no cable TV. The main building was reconstructed just a few years ago and looks brand new. The laundry and rest rooms are clean and in good shape. This KOA is in a country setting and nice for taking a walk. The owner is friendly and helpful. I enjoyed some conversation about the local area and his helpful directions to get back on I-35. We would stay here again. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Motorhome.
After a disastrous experience at a nearby campground I called and to my pleasant surprise found this campground had openings. What a welcome relief. This KOA wasn't right on the interstate as many are - about three miles off - and it was beautiful and welcoming. Their main lodge was just rebuilt a couple years ago. The staff was very sympathetic, led me right to my site, and made sure I got situated, delivering me firewood and kindling. Nice Kamping Kabins and tent sites. My wife and teenage daughters arrived later and we had a great time. There was an ice cream social that evening and a hayride. We will definitely be back to this campground. It is the best park of anywhere I have stayed near Duluth. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA. Nice campground but starting to show its age. Has a train track running on the opposite side of the office from the campsites. Could hear train blow whistle every time they came through the area. Otherwise nice and quiet. Staff very helpful in finding alternate route back to interstate due to construction. We would stay here again. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Motorhome.

We were looking for a peaceful place to spend the night. The train tracks are 50 yards at best from the park and it seems like every 30 minutes another one passes by and lays on the horn. When checking in, we were greeted by a young man who mumbled the directions. I would have expected an adult to be behind the counter. Woodalls was here inspecting the grounds and they rate this place a 4. Give me a break. The clubhouse is nice, the sites fairly spacious, but the train distracts from all of the positives. Would I stay here again? No! We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Motorhome.

This park is beautiful. It is also immaculate. The owner goes out of her way to make sure you are happy and comfortable. The showers and WiFi are excellent. And yes, there is a train occasionally, but it isn't that bad. It goes through so fast the noise last for about a minute. Big Deal!!! We had a nice level site under shady trees. The pool is nice. No cable or I would have rated it a 10. We would definitely return. One of the nicer KOA's. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Motorhome.
We liked this park. The sites are a bit close together but not to bad. The park has some real nice tent spots and cabins in the woods that looked comfortable. The sites were level and the manager and help were awesome. No cable but we liked the park. It was packed for the weekend so it had a bit of noise but it was fine We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We hadn't stayed here in a couple years and were pleased to find it had been completely remodeled. It now has a TV room, a game room with two pool tables and the nicest, cleanest bathrooms I have seen in a while. The showers have locking doors instead of shower curtains. You will get many TV stations with a good signal and a good wi-fi signal. The only bad thing about this campground is the train tracks that are very close to the campground and are frequently used.
