I want to be fair, because the people seemed friendly enough, including fellow campers, but for $38 a night, I don't think it's too much to expect to not have to drive through and trek through mud. It evident that no one has spent a dime on gravel in too many years, and I understand that it rained the night before, but seriously. The interior roads were all muddy (not "get stuck muddy", just standing water and sloppy, sandy mud). We had to park our car across the road from our site, so were forced to gingerly pick our way back and forth, leaving our shoes off at our door. The site was fairly level, didn't use the water hookup, but I just feel that the price should have been down around $20-25 a night, considering the site and road conditions. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Motorhome.

Wow, where do I start? They charged us 335.00 for 4 nights. The water pressure very poor. The water comes out cloudy. You can get a large rig in there, but its stressful due to the s curve driveway and many uncut trees. The park is small and dirty. The owner treated us very poorly. We were lied to when we pulled in; then she tried to say we were the liars. I did not feel comfortable at all. We had to park our truck on the playground because there was no room. Then when they started to fill up it was really bad. Kids running around your camper; then they rode their bikes around our camper. Our sewer tube was on an up hill; needless to say it did not work well. We felt this park is one step up from a trailer park We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here while we visited relatives in the area. This CG is apparently the only one in this area that likes big rigs and/or has room for rigs 65 feet or more. We checked and called several who did not want our business. The good - long, fairly level grass/gravel sites with hookups that worked correctly. Friendly work campers who know what they're doing, that stop and speak and the park has a nice pool. The not so good - the owners charge people $4.00 per person (even non swimmers) to visit you. He lets people park by their site, except if someone complains about campers with big trucks; then you get to park away from your rig. Rate is too high; we won't return. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of freeway noise. Gravel pads with lots of debris that gets tracked into your RV. Water pressure was terrible and internet was intermittent. Very poor campground for the money. We stayed as part of a group, so the rate was a 10% discount. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

An older but well maintained commercial campground. Campsites are large enough for big rigs but have little intervening space or screening. Most sites have partial shade from tree cover. Approximately 20% of the sites appear to be rented seasonally. Coin laundry on site, machines worked OK with two out of nine marked "out of service." This campground is near the freeway. There is some freeway noise especially in the sites closest to the freeway. The tent sites are farthest from the freeway and the noise there is for the most part barely audible. I didn't find the noise to be a problem. As other reviewers have noted this campground has an unusually restrictive visitors policy which is strictly enforced. There is a $4 charge per person for visitors, who are they asked to sign in? Propane is available on a cylinder exchange basis only, with 20# and 30# cylinders available. We found the water pressure consistent and had no problems with the electric service despite a hot day with many air conditioners going. There is a Walmart and a Hy-Vee grocery within 1-2 miles. The campground is readily accessible from the freeway. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Older campground and facilities are showing their age. The entry and interior roads are narrow and some tight turns. Friendly staff. It appears that there were several permanent units in the park. Utilities are spread out and not on central post. OK for an overnight stop. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Motorhome.

We were very pleased that it could accommodate large units since it is 40 feet. There are lots of trees so that was nice to see. The man that greeted us was very helpful and assisted us in parking this rig. He also helped set up our DirecTV box which allowed us to get TV. While they don't have cable TV, there is satellite TV hook ups which was a plus. We were able to check our email with Wi-Fi. The restrooms were very clean and the grounds looked like they were very well maintained as we arrived just after they had been mowed. This was a pleasant experience and we will be back. We don't have small children, but we noticed several things for kids like the playground, pool, bikes and game arcade. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Motorhome.

Great campground. Very family friendly, beautiful sites and a lot of activities for the kids. They also have plenty of grass, which I prefer vs camping on crushed rock. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Motorhome.

PROS: VERY nice staff. We have a new, 29ft travel trailer and were afraid to back in, but the guide that brought us to our site was awesome and explained how to do it. Super clean bathrooms and laundry facilities which also offer a pizza oven, a microwave, and a few other things I do not remember. Being a season tent camper in a previous life, I found that might impressive. Pool was warm even though the air temp was a bit chilly. I liked the salt water/chlorine combination, didn't make us stink of chlorine but just enough to keep germs at bay (I hope). Grounds super-level compared to other campgrounds we've stayed at. Our site had a brick patio too. Cute playground equipment, the old wooden kind that our kids really loved because it was something they weren't used to seeing. Water pressure was perfect and no issues with any power outages, though we mostly had the heat on until the last day when the midwest weather decided to cooperate. Love the fact that they offer recycling though after the holiday weekend, those bins were awfully full. It is rather cool that they had these bikes for all to use, not sure if there was a fee. My kids were too small but nice caring, touch to provide these. Very quiet campground. Not sure why other reviews claim to hear highway noise. We did not, at all, just an occasional whiff of horse or cow manure from what we suspect was a nearby farm. CONS: Biggest flaw is that we were not really happy that there is a charge for visitors ($4). We were in town for a family reunion and relatives wanted to see our new camper but we didn't want to pay for that. (NOTE: we did not check to see if they could just come for a few minutes, so maybe they would have allowed that?) Not happy that we couldn't get any TV reception at night due to wanting to check radar for pending storms. (NOTE: Saw a bunch of coaxial cables laying on poles from satellite dishes but wasn't sure if we could use, wasn't told anything and we kept forgetting to ask and my husband was too afraid to just try.) Spaces were quite tight. We were put in-between 2 permanents and while they appeared to be nice people, not too friendly and if this is a perm site, it is awfully small. We had tons of rain and while the drainage in the sites appeared ok, the roads could use some more gravel to help with the huge puddles. While there is a very clean rec room, not many activities for our young children. They did have a movie night in the rec room but there were some couches and picnic tables to sit at but I was afraid of sitting on cloth couches. Wasn't a big deal for us because we have a decent TV in our camper so our kids could just watch that. Total experience wasn't bad at all. We would stay here again for sure. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I consider this campground to be greatly overpriced. They offer no cable, no Wi-Fi, and the park is located in a noisy location as has been mentioned in previous reviews. It is satisfactory for an overnight stay only. I was greeted and checked in by a personable young man who led me to my site. On the positive side, there is convenient access to I-35 (the source of the noise). A Wal-Mart superstore, an excellent grocery store (Hy-Vee), and a number of national chain restaurants and stores are within several miles. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Motorhome.

Great mom and pop type campground with a salt water pool, nice owner and friendly staff. The park is clean, the highway noise did not bother us at all, but were in a MH vs. a tent. Only about a mile from town and a great employee owned grocery (HYVEE) where you can get 2 for 1 over 55 meals very reasonable on Wednesdays. Staying here for a couple of months and would definitely stay here again. We were able to find a site with satellite reception. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Motorhome.

We camped here back in the back by the playground and it is right off of I-35 and is very noisy day and night. It is a nice campground but the sites are very small and crowded. The parking is very limited and makes the roads in the park small when people are parked on the side. Nice pool and rec hall. We will probably be back just try and get something further from the road. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was an overnight stop for us. We were parked by the playground in #67. We could not get anything on the satellite but the antenna worked well for local stations. The laundry area was clean. This place is probably pretty busy on the weekends but tow parking was not a problem on a Monday. Guests are required to pay $3.00 each per day to visit a campsite. We have not run into this in two years of RVing. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Motorhome.

I agree with previous reviewers that this is a nice park with friendly owners. During the week, it's quiet; however, when the weekend comes, it's a noisy, bustling place with kids riding the rent-a-trikes everywhere. Heavily treed, there is no satellite use although the owner has installed dishes throughout the park that you can hook up to. Sites are good sized, but with all of the parked cars it seems crowded. It rained while we were here, and the roads quickly became muddy and we ended up with a lot of dirt spray on our coach. No Wi-Fi, but Verizon and Aircard worked well. Our stay was impacted by one of the workampers having four dogs that barked every time someone walked by. The town of Faribault doesn't have much to offer except a Super WalMart just up the road, and there is road construction everywhere. Check with the park before visiting; during our stay the main exit to town was closed. Overall, an OK place, but a bit overpriced. We'll pass on this park next time. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice overnight spot, kids enjoyed the pool, it is quiet, close to town if you need to run for groceries, etc. Friendly office staff. Would stop here again if in the area. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
