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

In addition to the nightly rate, there is an $8 reservation fee, and you will need a vehicle permit ($5 daily or $25 annually). The nice thing about the annual permit is it's good at all Anoka county, Washington county and Carver county parks. When you choose your site on the online reservation system you are able to view an image of the site. We had a great site, large and grassy, but there are a lot of sites that are narrow or mostly dirt. The sites are mostly private with lots of trees and bushes in between them. There are a few sites grouped together that would be good for a group of up to four units plus an additional tent on each site, however, it appeared to be a long walk to the restroom from those sites. There are a lot of trails and a nice playground. - Juniper94

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

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

The KOA here was quite pleasant. Situated in one of the few remaining gaps between the many suburbs that make up the Minneapolis/St. Paul mega-city, it was quiet and restful, except for the occasional nearby train that I've come to take as a normal part of camping. The campground is spacious, with a comfortable mix of sun and shade. The gravel sites were just wide enough and long enough for my truck and trailer. I would definitely return to this campground if I come back to the Minneapolis area. - Jim Fulton

We came to area to visit grandkids for three weeks. There are very limited options since it is near the twin cities. The park is old with shared water and electric pedestals. Our water and electric were right by the door with sewer on the other side. Sites are decent sized. Roads are gravel. Pool is small and worn. There is a small dog park, a mini putt and a playground. The pros are location, location, location. It's located on a highway although road notice isn't bad. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful and even though it's an old park, it's very clean. Short drive to Minneapolis, St Paul, etc. So while it seems overpriced, it's a nice enough campground. - wendie T

Nice KOA not our normal kind of place but was pleasantly surprised. Very clean and super friendly staff. They have a little dog run that was a nice addition. The hwy was close but the noise really wasn't an issue. - Back to the basics

We really liked our campsite across from the donkeys, llamas, goats and peacock! We had plenty of room on this end site and no problem to get satellite reception. Other campsites appeared a bit haphazard in arrangement and some were crammed together. There were also some nice sites surrounding Ham Lake. The entrance in is long, wooded and very narrow with a couple turnouts if two RV's meet. (Seems a tree or two could be removed) We were both a little concerned about where we were headed and were pleasantly surprised at the campground. While some of the signs and picnic tables could use some sprucing up, everything was clean and well kept up. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have mowed walking areas through the woods and fields and a small playground for the kids. We did not use the dump station, it appeared to be difficult to get to and would block vehicles when using it. It is NOT a resort but a very comfortable, older style, friendly mom and pop type operation. They were recently bought out by a resort operation so things may be modernized a bit. - NanciRV

This park is old and new. Full hook up, 50 amp sites in the office area are filthy, overgrown and in the trees. Lots of shade but very hard to back in to some. Three to four rigs need to hook up to same water outlet. Wifi non-existent at our site. Great at office. Rest room and shower are old, calcified fixtures, and in need of total remodel. - Rsunde

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

Beautiful spacious preserve. Very friendly and helpful staff. So nice to find such a nice facility close to the Twin Cities. Campsites are so spacious that you hardly believe you are in an rv campground. We camped here in a travel trailer while visiting family. Bonus, we got to see a doe that had triplet fawns and they were just outside our window. Will definitely return. - Sharlou

This campground is exceptionally clean and well kept. I love the no pet rule due to other campground's rules/no compliance rules by patrons. Clean, supervised, tons of kids friendly places to play. My 2-year old granddaughter was protected by other children's patrons in the park area and we felt so safe on equipment. Everything is within walking, biking or driving distance. A bonus was Ecuadorian neighbors played guitar and and sang during campfire hours which was totally amazing. Can't wait to come back here. Stayed in a travel trailer. - brendajoro

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 campground is truly one of the best in the Minneapolis area. The bicycle paths are excellent. There is a lake for swimming and boating and other activities are also available. The campsites are large and week-spaced. Interior roads are a little on the narrow side and may make it difficult to back into your site if your neighbor parks at the edge of the road. There is easy access to shopping, etc., from this location. - Bobbi1948

We camped here in the middle of the week and it was pretty empty, but we were leaving on Friday and noticed all the 50 amp spots were reserved for the weekend. This is a very pretty campground with lots of spaces. Unfortunately, we were so busy during our stay here that we didn't have time to explore. Our Big rig fit fine in the back in spaces. - Fishen4trout

The Bathrooms and shower rooms were kept very clean and showers were great...the area to do dishes was a nice addition... the area to park your car in, without being on grass was very small..and gravel pad for trailer uneven. Too bad other campers can be such pigs and leave such a mess..saw where the caretakers had a lot of clean up. - kaths

We stayed there over the 4th of July and made reservations on the day the system opened in March and got the last site available. Very busy!!!! But a well kept park. There is a large lake with boating, fishing and beach along the many miles of trails. Every working person we ran into was about 16 years old (except for the construction workers)and didn't seem to have any mature adults supervising them. The restrooms were modern but so busy it was nearly impossible to keep them clean. - rhianna

What a beautiful park! There are over 8 miles of paved bike trails and numerous hiking, horse riding and other trails. The people were very friendly. On some weekends they have scheduled family events! I can't say enough positive things about this park. You would have to stay there to truly appreciate this park!! - kristine

Beautiful, clean, quiet, well-kept park. Very convenient to everything we wanted to see and to shopping. Easy to get into the cities and, strangely, the heavy traffic was always going in the opposite direction. OTA TV, Verizon hotspot and phone all worked well, but campground wifi was erratic and mostly unusable. Sites are angled in such a way that some are much roomier than others. For an urban location this place can't be beat. Would definitely stay again. Rate shown is for a week not including reservation fee. - all4pets

We love this park. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and the sites were gravel and well spaced. The campground is hidden away from the road and although you are in the Twin-City area, you are surrounded by nature. When we needed wood for the fire-pit, one of the campground attendants brought it to our site. They have great hiking trails that run through the woods and around some lakes in the park and though you feel like you are in the wilderness, you are a short drive from all the amenities the city has to offer like Mall of America, Cascade Bay Water Park in Eagan and great restaurants. There were a lot of big-rigs (5th Wheels and Motorhomes) at the campground and the sites seemed to easily accommodate them. We will definitely stay here again next year. - DEPhilbrick

The bathrooms are immaculate as is the campground. Full hookups in one loop. The other two loops are electric only and primitive. These non full hookup loops are more private and you can add a tent. Not in the full-hookup look - no tents allowed and spaces are tight although many back up to woods and have trees and grassy areas nearby.
If you don't need full hookups and don't have a huge travel trailer, choose the electric only loop. It is much more private, water stations nearby all along the road and you can erect a tent with your trailer. - kayjoy
