It has big spaces. There are a few trails for hiking. Lots of mosquitoes in July. We plan to stay there again. The golf course is fun to play. The stream can be fished (trout?). We plan to stay there again this fall. The rate above was averaged with their $8 reservation fee. The Fort area is interesting. We camped at Fort Ridgley State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very small state park. There are 2 loops in the camping area. The first one you come to is all non electric and for some reason many of the sites were blocked off. The other "loop" isn't really a loop but one long road. The sites are very spacious. One side of this road is the river so many of the sites are waterfront. To get to the bathrooms you have to walk across a bridge and up the stairs so they are not handicap accessible. This campground has quite a few hiking trails as well as a golf course. The course is extremely hilly so you'll get a good workout. They have a deal where if you stay 3 nights you get a free day of golf (as much as you want to golf). We'll stay here again. We camped at Fort Ridgley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are widely spaced and have trees in between for separation and some privacy. Some are more shaded than others. Campground is in creek valley so is somewhat out of the wind. There is a small sandbox available for children. Restroom/showers are accessed by crossing a bridge over the creek, then climbing several stairs; the path is lit at night. The restrooms are a good walk from even the nearest campsites. Sites are level. We camped at Fort Ridgley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

You will need a state park sticker, daily or annual. To reserve it on line will cost another $8.50. If you are a history buff then this is a nice place to stop and learn about the Sioux upraising. Campsites are in a bit of valley so it is a bit darker. Nice tree lined sites. We camped at Fort Ridgley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
