5 Parks near Elbow Lake, Minnesota
May 2009 - $25.00
27 E-W sites and 2 full hookups on lake shore. On an excellent fishing lake with many permanents. Very well maintained, neat park with some monster pull thrus with E-W only. Just two full hookup back in sites. Friendly check in and manager lives on site. Very quiet with good access. A little off the beaten path but I would stay here again. - run2

Excellent choice if you're working your way west/east across the prairie as its just off Interstate 94. Most of the sites are pull-through facing the lakes. Pelican Lake, an EXCELLENT CHOICE for birders, is located within a mile. Not much for shopping except a small, local grocery store. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

We all read into reviews; I did. I read the reviews and the frequent reference to the beautiful lakes and assumed that they were accessible. Not! The park is on very high ground that drops away sharply giving a commanding view of the countryside including Pelican Lake. It is very big, quite pretty and more than 1/4mi away with no access. Enjoy the view.
This is a very small park: 14 rv sites, the first six with sewer, and 10 tent sites. More interesting the rv sites alternate pull-through and back-in and share a pedestal breaker box in pairs. All power is 30amp. The paired rv's are very close.
Wi-Fi was difficult to get started, then fine. Antenna TV pulled in a lot.
The bathrooms were not fancy, but were fresh and clean. Shower was hot with a lot of force. There is no laundry.
The owners are very pleasant and helpful and keep a clean and well maintained park. Not much to do in the area, but a nice place to stop. Be careful, it is right next to the I94 exit, within 500'. A big berm cuts down on hi way noise
$30.00 is a little pricey for this simple, basic park and the pet fee is just not right. $2.00 per dog, per day is just a money maker, there are no pet facilities. What are we paying for? Our dog, like most rv dogs, is very scheduled. I have to pickup after her twice a day. So I am paying them $2.00 a day for the privilege of cleaning up after my dog. RV'ers with more than one dog, staying a couple of days could be paying a lot. It would be better if this was a deposit to be returned if no dog mess was found. - Jack B

Stopped here for an overnight. True about the sites being tight if they were full, but they do space you out and you want to set up facing the view of the lake. Absolutely beautiful spot. It was a very windy night but they have trees and bushes planted that blocked the wind. Level gravel sites with full hookup. Wifi was fine, a little slow but we had no problem. Verizon cell was excellent. Antenna pulled in plenty of channels. Owners were lovely.Excellent stopover. We would definitely stop here again. - luv2gowalkabout

This campground has great potential. Good views of Pebble Lake and lots of wide open spaces. There is a separate area for tents and RVs. All sites can accommodate any size RV. The town of Fergus Falls is about 3 miles away. The main road into the campground and all of the sites are on packed gravel. All sites are back-in. None of the sites are level, some worse then others. The electrical box is shared between two sites. Within each utility box there are one 30-amp and four 20-amp outlets. The water spigots on most sites are located way in the back. You would probably need at least 50 feet of hose to reach the faucet. There are only two vault toilets for the entire campground. These toilets were probably designated for the bike trail head (Central Lakes Bike Trail). Wi-Fi, cable, showers, and a dump station are not available in this campground. Only one interior street light was working. The fee box is located at the entrance to the campground – no camp host on duty. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. No reservations so it’s first come – first served. It was very quiet at night. We would definitely come back here if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot rig. - adsaxs

On Thursday before Labor Day we were looking for somewhere to stay over the long weekend and found this park on RV Park Reviews. We called and were told that the park is first-come, first-served and that it was unlikely to be full on a weekday. We arrived mid-afternoon and picked site 8, probably the best site of the 14 electric sites, with good shade. By Friday evening, the electric sites were all taken. As good luck would have it, the other camper using the shared power pedestal only used a 20 amp connection, so we could use the 30 amp connection. The park is located right on the 55 mile Central Lakes paved rail-trail so that was convenient for us on our bikes. Also, the annual steam threshers' reunion at Rollag was only 50 miles away and is definitely worth a day or more. Electric sites are mostly back in. Although a big rig could fit in here, there may not be room for it plus a towed on the site. We saw a newspaper article indicating that the city will likely improve the park with proper restrooms (instead of pit privies), improved electrical service, and a dump station (none here now). We'd definitely stay here again due to the good bicycling opportunities. - Jay Rutherford

Beautiful city park. Not really "waterfront" sites but we camped up the hill from the lake. Nice view of the lake, only a park road and grass between us and the lake. Nice boat launch available. Very quiet when we were here. Access is past city play fields and bike/hike trail. Lots of nice looking tent sites. Most sites are relatively short. We camped here in a 31-foot RV. Backed up past the gravel pad onto the grass and were able to park truck in line with the rig. Hookups were at the rear of site. Overall a very nice experience. - SandyBBB

This is such a cute campground. The pool is very nice with roomy seating. The setting is beautiful: pond, rolling hills, trees, short nature trail, 2 paddle boats. The bathrooms are clean. We were there on a Monday night and it wasn't crowded at all. It is very quiet. The sites are very roomy with grass and trees. The wifi isn't great but that seems to be the standard in rv parks. - Zeus16

Great family campground with large playground, Quiet, clean, neat and trimmed throughout entire campground. Country setting, easy off and on Interstate, nice pull through sites with good space around it. Lots of nice mature oak and maple trees. Quiet hours enforced at 11PM. Mostly 30 amp sites and a couple 50 amp. Owners always upgrading sites adding more 50 amp. Free but marginal coverage area Wi-Fi(closer to store the better it is). Local over air TV reception is good; most sites can get satellite TV. Adequate water pressure 40-45 PSI and clear water, quite a few Full Hook up. All sites including tent sites have water and electricity. Well stocked store and check in area, Friendly and accommodating owners. Weekend themed activities planned for kids activities, free wagon rides through the woods on most weekends, free use of paddle boats for on pond on site. Wooded hiking trail, large ball field and areas for play. Ice and Firewood for purchase at store and delivered to campsites, and basement severe storm shelter. Nice large pool that owner tests the water every day. Pool is unheated but that didn't seem to bother anybody by looking at all the people enjoying it. Horseshoe pits, laundry facilities, clean bathrooms, . . . - Bob and Twyla

We stayed here towards the end of October on our way south. The water was no longer available but we expected that due to the time of year and we were winterized anyway.
We were assigned a very nice long pull thru which was great for our 39' 5th wheel. Escorted to our site. Easy to get in and out. Wifi was good.
Very pretty park, rolling hills and a few ponds.
We would stay here again. - aries
