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

Stunningly beautiful setting. Lots to do here, horseback riding, hayrides, events and boating. Friendly staff. Roads are dirt primarily and could be quite a challenge for very large rigs depending on where in the park you are located. Some of the seasonal sites were a bit older, but neatly kept. Very quiet, and peaceful. We will definitely be back. - sfranks

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

We were heading home from vacation when we decided to look for a campground for our last night on the road. We made a major mistake by picking A-J Acres. When we turned onto their dirt road we were immediately struck by the roads disrepair. For the mile it took us to drive back to the campground we were jolted and jarred by the wash-board condition of the dirt road. The speed sign of 30 mph must be meant for Baja racers as we could barely maintain 3 mph with all the bouncing our truck and coach were taking. In all my years of travels, this road was by far the worst I ever had to drive on to get to a campground. When we finally managed to get into the campground, and into the office, I asked about the rough and deplorable condition of their road. The guy behind the counter just shrugged his shoulders and said they can't get the township to run a grader over it to smooth it over. In my opinion if I owned this place I would buy my own drag and pull it up and down the road with my lawn tractor. Anything is better then nothing... I also asked about a full hook up site and was told they were all spoken for. Later when we took a walk in the park I observed many full hookup sites sitting empty. Another thing about this CG is that it's very old and in desperate need of upgrading and repair. When we were given the map of our campsite the guy just pointed up the hill and told me to just pick a site. He told us to look for site numbers on the trees and to pull in. Well to make a long story short there turned out to only be a couple small, faded number signs on a few trees so it was almost impossible to determine what site we were actually in. All in all, I suggest anyone who wants to camp in this area look elsewhere for a campground. This is one poor excuse for a campground in my opinion. - jackmroz

Stayed here a week in a 42 foot 5th wheel on a pull through dirt site. This park shows its age with tight interior dirt roads and lack of cable TV. The sites could be cleaner since the gravel is hard to find. We were here during a couple of rain storms and the sites and roads turn muddy. Would do much better if the roads had some gravel on them. The restrooms are "tired" looking with low ceilings. The WIFI is so-so but useable with a signal booster. The RV park was close to town, the people were friendly so that was nice. However, would not recommend staying here for the price. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

On the east side of St. Cloud. Follow state route 23 east past US-10 and take next right (south) onto local route 8. About 1 mile - sign on left. All local roads are good quality asphalt/concrete. Credit cards accepted. Campground roads are gravel, narrow in spots, tight turn past swimming pool. No overhead obstacles. FHU-20/30/50. Pull-thru sites are long, gravel with sufficient room between sites. Picnic tables and some sites have concrete patios. Some trees but transient spots are open - good for satellite antennas. Grass between sites, some nice landscaping. Fire pits and firewood is available for sale; all wood must be Minnesota approved. Restrooms/showers clean and modern (score "A"). Propane sales. No cable. Free Wi-Fi. Good Verizon coverage. No noise. Bug Report: no insect problems. Recycle aluminum cans only. - StephenK

Very nice campground a bit away from US-10 and downtown St. Cloud. Lots of mature trees and grassy plots next to gravel sites. We were guided to site 73 and, as the Big Rig Book advised, our guide also told us to swing wide around the pool. Other than that tight-ish turn the roads were very easy to navigate. Hook-ups were easily accessible. - monamonaco

An overnight stop. All utilities used and all worked well. - Sewmom

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

Very nice, family friendly campground. The prices is right. Lots of shade and there are several sights with paved pads and lots of grass, not all are this way but some are. Pet friendly. Very clean restrooms and showers. Nice large beach great for swimming. Nice playground. Easy boat docking area and large dock for fishing. Nice fishing lake. Would recommend. - babytygger

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

Great place!! Only drawback is it is very hard to get into. Cool playground right on the beach!! Really big sites. Would be better if they had full hook-ups. Summer months fill up fast. - bunny102

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

We camped here with our 3 children (15, 13, 11). We had somewhat of a level site (wasn't real bad to level). TV reception wasn't all that good (only got 1 major channel along with maybe 6-7 other channels). Restrooms/showers were really nice and clean (although I wish they had them closer to the upper level). Our kids LOVED the pool and slides, we also went tubing which was great, and did some mini-golfing which was fairly cheap ($3.75/game). The staff was REALLY super nice who showed us to our site. We had problems with flies through-out our stay, seems they always seem to be pestering everyone. - Close to Home Mom

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
