We found this place on our GPS and needed a place to stop for one night. The office is an old travel trailer outside, what was, the camp office. We found out that the owners couldn't get permits renewed for some unknown reason so the office and associated amenities was mothballed. It looks like this park was really nice at one time but not now. It is really run down with mostly permanent residents. Our site was right in front with 30 amp and no sewer. It was OK to plug in for the night but not much else. It looks like the 30 amp was protected by fuses, not breakers in the pedestal. We didn't look around much and if this park has restrooms and showers, they were probably disgusting. If you are looking for a safe place to hook for one night and plan to stay in your rig, this would be an OK park, otherwise for the price, there are better places to stay. We were told there was a dump station but we didn't need it. Our site was right in front of the office and the free WiFi was decent with one bar. We camped at Wapiti Park Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.
Old, poorly maintained park. Roads are dirt as are the spaces. Many longterm residents and many motorcycles and 4 wheelers. Some grass but thin. Too much bird crap everywhere to enjoy being outside. Peafowl and guineas everywhere and they are really noisy especially when about 10 of them gather under you rig and start their screeching at 6 am. WiFi is non-existent. Manager said it was working in her mother-in-law's house but I stood under the antenna and had zero signal. This was true for the 2 days we were in the park.

I have been camping at Wapiti Park Campgrounds for over 10 years and I absolutely love it! There are 2 parks for the children, swimming, fishing, and tubing in the river. There are 2 bath houses that are very clean. The showers have plenty of hot water. The office supplies many things including ice, firewood, propane, pizza, beer, pop and many more items! The staff is friendly and helpful. Thanks Wapiti for all the good years! We camped at Wapiti Park Campgrounds in a Motorhome.
I have been camping at Wapiti Park campground for over 10 years. The seasonal campers and the full-time campers are all very nice and very helpful. The animals on the property, (they do not have emu's any more), are of course caged and not walking around the campgrounds, and are beautiful. I know that my kids love to go and see the donkeys, horses, chickens and much more. The river is one of the most calm I have ever been in and one of the cleanest. We love to float down the river from the beginning of the campground until the end of the campground. Sometimes we even sneak a midnight float in, of course the owner is always watching and telling us to be careful: even at my age of 38. From the time I was 18 until 27 my family and I jumped from campground to campground. However since we found Wapiti, we have not been to another campground. We camped at Wapiti Park Campgrounds in a Motorhome.
I can't believe the previous reviewer was in the same Elk River, Wapiti Park that we were in! The sites are very small and close together; electric service, at least for non-permanent campers is 20 amp and there are NO sewer hook-ups available except in the seasonal or permanent sites. All but a few sites are filled with seasonal or full time residents complete with tool sheds, old cars and trash. The first site they offered us was so small I thought they had made a mistake-- that it wasn't a site at all, plus the electric outlet and water tap was being used by adjacent campers. Then they offered a site next to a permanent camper with a chain link dog kennel (complete with 3 barking Labs) in the back. As much as I love Labs, I wanted to leave at this point but they have, of course, a NO REFUND policy. Once they have your money you can leave if you want and tough luck--indeed, someone in the office as much as said that to me, twice! Finally the owner came by and offered us their group site. This was on the river, grassy, and large enough that we didn't need to look at other campers trash. The Elk River is very muddy and we had no desire to get in it. Oh yes, there are Emus walking around. Would we come back?--NO, NEVER, not under any circumstances. We camped at Wapiti Park Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

What a great campground! Very laid back, lots of year-round (in Minnesota!) older rigs, very friendly, and GORGEOUS: treed, and a river runs through it! Dirt roads, grassy sites, peacocks, emus, a penned deer, horse pasture, playgrounds, laundry. The "Clubhouse" has pool, darts, a few groceries, and a BAR! Not for the concrete/gravel/pad/sauna/pool types probably, but there's a rope swing out over the river! We loved it. We camped at Wapiti Park Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
