5 Parks near Fergus Falls, Minnesota
Aug 2014 - $20.00
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

Beautiful huge park! On lake. Lots of trails. Large grassy sites. Some are nice and level, some not. Campground sites are two miles from the ranger station check-in. Lots of fall colors once we had a couple cool nights. After walking our small dog around the lake and going to Dent for dinner (Nootzi's - great restaurant!) we were told that there were coyotes in the park! - SandyBBB

Nice park. BIG!! 30,000 acres. A lot to do here, from fishing to boating, or just go for a hike. Kids really enjoyed swimming at the beach. Sites were easy to back into. - PackerFanRick

This was certainly a surprise gem in Pelican Rapids. I've lived in this area my whole life and never knew this campground existed! I just stayed here on a Monday and Tuesday night with my 5 year old son in a pop-up camper. It was peaceful, quiet, and clean! Police and city workers patrol the park regularly. A spectacular park is right in your midst, and a walk across a river via a unique suspension bridge takes you to another great park! Plenty of shops downtown and places to eat. The city pool is right next to the campground and that was very nice! The bathrooms were very dated but did the job. Hot water in the shower lasted about 3 minutes. The electric sites are all very crowded but I was lucky to have the place to myself. No firewood on hand. River views are great. Well worth the price to stay here. Beautiful Maplewood State Park is 7 miles away, a must see! If you have kids or just want a quiet getaway, stay here during the week! - vumpire

A beautiful city park located in the center of Pelican Rapids on the Pelican River. City swimming pool in park and a playground is located across the river in Peterson Park. Parks are connected by a suspension bridge. Bathrooms are modest but clean. Nice quiet place to spend the weekend. There is a dump station and fresh water is available. - repeterson

Be aware that you pull off the ramp when traveling north/ west and its almost an immediate turn into campgrounds. Great little campgrounds for overnight or a short stay. Very clean, well set up for pull thru site- no sewer hook up but dump station is available. Great view and fresh air. We stayed overnight. Staff courteous and very friendly. - witchey1

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

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
