This was our first visit to El Rancho. There were fun planned activities for our children, however the campground itself was not very kid friendly. Very small playground only for very little children. The swimming beach got very crowded with other campers. The campground itself was too large and spread out, not an easy walk to the main lodge. It was nearly impossible pushing our jogging stroller because the roads were so sandy. Therefore our older children couldn't use their scooters or bikes because of all the sand and unevenness. The campsites we and our other party had were very uneven. We had full hookups but the campsite was so tight and uneven it was hard to empty our tanks at the end of the stay. Neither us or the other party we camped with had picnic tables either. So we are our meals separately in our own campers - Jberg82

Nice setting, with relaxed feel. Some of the sites were tight and uneven. Horse riding was expensive, but kids enjoyed it. You can also walk the horse trails but not real smooth. Overall we enjoyed. - RVP CAMPER

Ours was a single overnight visit while traveling. While far from physically ideal for overnights, this is an amazing campground basically directed to horse-campers, trail hikers, small boat fans, and family outings of more than one or two nights. For those uses, our scoring would be two steps higher. The facilities are rustic but well-maintained. The staff is friendly, helpful, and very concerned that one enjoys one's visit. Our stay was at the end of the season, and the campground was largely empty. We would have no hesitation about visiting again. - nasa42a

Very nice wooded sites. Lots of privacy. It was kind of inconvenient to have to cross a highway to access the baseball field and beach. There is no RV camping on the lake side, just tents. Very strict on quiet times, almost too strict. There was no complaints on us, but the manager came twice to tell us that we needed to be quieter. We were just sitting around the campfire talking, not being loud at all. Lots of games to keep the kids busy. We didn't go on any hikes, but there were numerous trails to go hiking on. Very nice campground, just remember to keep it to a whisper at quiet times. We would visit here again. - Kristine Birkholz

What is with all the terrible reviews? It also appears many of the reviews are for another campground in the area because AJ Acres doesn't even have a pool. I wouldn't believe what you are reading on here because it seems many of the reviews are not for this campground but rather a different campground in Clearwater. For some clarification, YES this campground has dirt roads, when it is dry they can be dusty and when it rains they can be a bit muddy, but you are camping-if you want tar and concrete camp in your backyard. No pool but a large beach. It is camping you will encounter dirt and bugs. You don't want it get a hotel. This is a great place to camp but be prepared to CAMP!!! They have amenities so it isn't like you are roughing it. Water, electric, fully stocked store, beach, bait, fishing pier, shower houses, swing sets, etc. Not first class like a resort but great for a family weekend out of the city to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. We camped here several times a year and keep coming back. - campit

We decided not to stay here once we had a conversation with the lady at the front desk. We stopped in at about 8PM just looking for a place to park and sleep and be on our way by 8AM the next morning. The individual was very rude and really didn't want us to stay. It was if it was to much work and when she gave me the price for 7 people she had the nerve to say you might as well stay at a hotel because it will be cheaper. From the outside things looked nice but if that is how people in Minnesota treat people passing through, - Cudpal

We read many of the reviews the day that we left. Wasn't sure what to expect. Having stayed only one night we can say the negative reviews are more than accurate. The campground is filthy. The sites are nothing but sand. Mud for us since it rained the entire evening. I thought we could tolerate the sandy conditions, but even die hard like us could not stand it for more than one night. There is no game room as advertised. Also, the petting zoo is a long walk for most campers and is nothing special. A couple wandering goats, a llama and a donkey are what we saw. The beach was disgusting. There were cigarette butts and litter all over. The seasonal crowd wasn't the most welcoming. They complained loudly about "weekenders" coming in. There also was excessive swearing and drinking at the beach. After 45 minutes I decided it was not the best place for our young children to be. I even felt uncomfortable. At night, it was noisy with loud campers and dogs barking constantly. The first thing we did the next morning was pack up and leave. I do not suggest this campground, especially to those with young children. - smores

I was pleasantly surprised based on some other reviews I've seen. Check-in quick and easy and the check-in hosts were wonderful. Site was easy to get to (40-ft towing). Roads are gravel. Sites do slope but the rig parking is long enough that it did not affect leveling - did not see any rigs with blocks or tires off the ground. Campground is clean, well maintained; clean and active pool. Really nice children's playground; ladder ball set-up, horseshoes, etc. Large dog lawn (not enclosed). My site is grassy, a shade tree, picnic table and fire pit. Easy to find and get too and close to shopping, etc. Definitely would stay here again. - Willym_Leaming

Big rig friendly with level sites. Easy on and off access to main road. No dog park but large field to walk dog. Showers were fine just old. Laundry was good. No problem with our satellite. Wifi was okay some of the time. SIte 10 was fine but neighboring site was very close. Their awning was over our camper. - Fulltimersrv

We stayed a week in our 42 foot fifth wheel. Overall Park is very nice. Nice pool. Gravel sites. Some pullthrus are inclined make sure to request a level site. Nice doggy area but not fenced. Internet is pretty good. Power is great. Good location and easy to get to. Well maintained. Rural setting but not far from stores etc. We would definitely stay here again. A little pricey for the amenities compared to other parks we have visited. - Landee2

Level gravel site. Just long enough for our MH and trailer. A tree between sites provided some shade. We needed to use our sewer line extension as the hook-up was at the very end of the site. Cost for washer/dryers was high ($1.75) but machines were clean and in good working order. Laundry room itself was clean and decorated. We stayed 3 nights and our one criticism would be the dog walk area. They have a perfect area for a fenced park but no real area exists now. - Boomerific

Hard to get a campground in this area. Weekends impossible!
The mgr said, well it's a short season and the locals camp every chance.
So this appears to have been a KOA and barely maintained. Sites have not been leveled for awhile. Hookups are far from middle, so my 35' electric cord was enough.
Locals let their kids run wild at night until we yelled at them to go to their site.
Got up this morning and someone let their big dog poop at the front of our site and not clean up.
Will not see us again! But when you are sold out, do you think they care? - Sir_Charles395

The campground is in a very scenic setting, right on a lake with lots of trees. You can hear the calls of the loons in the early morning. There are no water or sewer hookups, obviously no WiFi or cable TV, and only 30 amp electric, so it's really suited more for primitive camping. They start taking reservations on a specific day in April and it's standing room only from early in the morning. Most of the popular dates book up very quickly. We were visiting family in nearby Maple Lake, so this campground was very convenient. There is nothing else any closer than St. Cloud. We would stay there again if back in the area. - melissab7

We stayed in the overflow along a golf course with water and electric. It was very green everywhere, but a nearby railroad had many loud trains and train whistles, especially while we were attempting to sleep. This is an Airstream only park, though we saw a motorhome of a different brand also. it was a busy weekend and the overflow was on grass and quite level, so we were glad to find it. I don't know what they have with full hookups since most of it seems to be sites owned by Airstream owners. Overall it met our needs for the night except for the trains. - AirstreamGene

Our camping club, the MN Going Gophers, held their fall camp out at Two Rivers this year. We had 16 units in attendance so we got a group discount. While the nightly rate is on the pricey side in the summer, it's very reasonable before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. The staff was very accommodating and helpful with making the arrangements and while we were camping. An employee stopped by during our stay just to remind us that the pavilion was available if we wanted to use it and to see if we needed anything. The campground is beautiful with lush, green grass, large level sites, and well maintained buildings and landscaping. The lower campground is surrounded on three sides by the two rivers. Every site in the lower campground has a good view of the rivers and there are many sites right on the river shore. The upper campground does not have a view of the rivers but is closer to the office, pool, pavilion, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and it's a short walk down to the rivers. There was a small pine tree on our site that prevented us from backing in far enough to park our truck in front of the camper, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to open the awning. We were able to park the truck perpendicular to the camper though so it wasn't a problem. One unusual feature of this campground is that they have a security gate. You have to pay $20 for a gate card and register every vehicle with the office. You get the $20 back when you check out. This was a little inconvenient when a member of our group arrived early Saturday morning but couldn't get in the gate. Even when her husband, who had a gate card, went to let her in, an employee noticed and said she couldn't go in because her car wasn't registered with the office and the office didn't open until 9:00am. There is a large parking lot next to the office that she had to leave her car in. - Juniper94

Overall very satisfied with this park. Staff was generally friendly except for a couple of people working the pool area. Sites were great. Layout of the campground was ideal. Very level and spacious. Nearby river offered plenty of activities. Tubing was fun. Beach and pool were well maintained and the kids loved both. Mini golf was a well maintained course, but cost extra. Camp store had the bare minimum. Nearest store of any significance is 20 minutes away, so bring what you need. Several minor details to keep in mind. 1) Campground was difficult to find. Signage was not easily visible, with grass and weeds covering most of the sign and GPS was not helpful. Trying to find it in a downpour in a big rig with a tow in farm fields was challenging. Office staff was not answering phones to guide us in. 2) Shower houses, although clean, were limited. There are only two for the entire camp with one toilet and several showers in each. Plan ahead if you have to use it! Its a hike! 3) Advertised WiFi was essentially non-existent from our site. Didn't bother us, but be aware. Despite these inconveniences, we would definitely stay again. Perfect for a long weekend away with the kids. - mm1407

Great place! Very well kept! The only thing I wish was different was that you have to pay for mini golf, tubing, etc on top of what you pay for your site. - H Family

This is a hidden gem if your passing along I-94 and need to stay overnight. 50 amp & Water for $15/night pay box at campground. Right along the banks of the Sauk River, river sites only have 20 or 30 amp there are 4 sites with 20, 30 & 50 amp, next to ball diamond. One pedastal for every two sites, so some utilities on opposite side of most trailers or RV's. No checkout time, no reservations, 7 night maximum stay. Nice grassy park with gravel pads, level sites. The four sites by the ball diamond are big rig accessible. No sewer hookups, but a nice dump station is available. Verizon data speed 3.34 mbps. Able to get satellite TV reception at our site. - dmkimm
