3 Parks near Hinckley, Minnesota
Aug 2015 - $27.00
Lots of season regulars here. Popular place, even more so when there is a big concert at the casino. Playgrounds and pool for kids. At the casino - Grand Casino Hinckley - there is a Kid's Zone as well. The pool was very crowded - they allow parties, reunions, etc so it does get busy. Their Wi-Fi has multiple towers in the park. For the week we were here, I could log on but could not get pages to load except at an excruciatingly slow pace. I bragged about their Wi-Fi on here a year ago. Too bad. Grounds are well kept and the place is clean. Free shuttle to casino was running often. Picnic table and fire ring at every site. Blacktop pads with grass in between. Some sites with shade. Cable worked. - kellygreen

This is a very large indian-owned campground located by a casino.All spaces are back in, but long enough to stay hooked up for a one night stay. Utilities were good, satellite no problem and far enough from the freeway to be quiet. - ronboett

This park is a winner. We travel 6 months a year, over the last 10 years, and this park is one of our top 5 for being very true to its Good Sam rating. The sites are level asphalt, with grass on each side. The power, water, sewer and satellite signal are good. The Wi-Fi signal would not connect. The grounds are very clean and there are no written rules. You use common sense. You can walk to the casino or take the free shuttle. We stayed here for a week without any problems. - ctjt1234

First time stay. Camped under ROD. Back in site. 30 amp. Water and electric at site. Dump station near office easy to get to. Electric and water located between every other site at the front. So you would need a 25' + cord to hook up depending which site you were in. Indoor pool clean and well maintained. Very friendly tubing and kayaking company (Parduns) in Danbury (6 miles). Casino also in Danbury. ATV trails nearby. St. Croix state park about 14 miles. Judy at the front was very friendly and helpfull. Manager not so much. Wouldn't even make eye contact. - Rlachermeier

What to say? The grounds are lovely; the facilities are great. We hated our stay.
This is now called Pathfinder Resort. It is set up for the permanent residents. We outsiders are treated like second class citizens. They are allowed to use ATV's and Golfcarts but outsiders aren't. And they race around with them at high speed day and night. There are loud parties.
They put us in a space we couldn't fit in; we went to the office to ask for help. She told us she had no idea the size of spaces or what was at each one. She didn't know and didn't care. The map they gave us was inaccurate and useless.
The entrance is not designed for RVs; there is no place for you. Cars can pull over to register; motorhomes with a tow will block everything. The residents then zip around you and give you nasty looks. It was dangerous. Visitors are treated like interloper - sfrantz

This place is now called St. Croix River Resort. The price reflects $0, we stayed here on ROD. Very spacious sites, each cul-de-sac has 6 sites. Ours had 50 amp power, good water pressure, and sewer. Satellite TV was a bit of a challenge, and we decided on less channels. Verizon service was OK, not great and non-existent at times. This park gets busy on the weekends, but during the week, it is very quiet and peaceful. The St. Croix River is nearby for floaters, lots of ATV trails, and plenty of lakes around. There is a nice grocery store only a few miles away in Danbury, WI...about 6 miles away (Hinkley is about 20 miles away). The pool and all facilities are well maintained. The customer service is absolutely outstanding. We had to do repairs on our RV and they went out of their way to help us. - simonsrf

This is a very nice State Park located next to the St. Croix River. They are electric only sites. The park is very well maintained. We stayed there 2 nights. We did pop a breaker with the a/c running (one unit) and when checking the wattage, we had low wattage coming from the post. The gnats were very thick so we didn't get out too much, but both days we were there, they had activities going on. It is a very popular kayaking/canoeing destination and tour companies use the launch ramps. Plenty of shade. Nicely spaced sites. Walking trails. - jacknpeg

We really enjoyed this State Park. It has a lot of biking and hiking areas. The sites all had tall mature trees around them. Some of the sites were longer and more private than others. The camping area is quite a ways off of the main road (5 Miles). The sites were nice and level. - PackerFanRick

Among the largest parks in the state, St. Croix State Park offers recreational access to rivers and lakes. There is also an extensive network of biking and hiking trails, and an equestrian facility. Most campground guests take advantage of river-based recreation of one form or another, since the campground is remote and there are closer alternatives for other purposes. There is a concession on site that offers canoe and kayak rentals starting at about $40. There are a number of campsites that are hike-in or canoe-in only, inaccessible to RVs. The RV campground layout is similar to other state parks, only larger. There are 9 campground loops, all equipped with back-in sites. About half the sites are electric, more than are shown on official maps. To the extent I am able to determine, all of the electric sites are 30A. Though the loops are separated into three campgrounds: Riverview, Paint Rock Springs, and Old Logging Trail. They are adjacent and are similarly equipped. Wi-Fi is provided. Speeds are slow but usable. Like other Minnesota state parks, there is no water at individual sites, a policy the DNR has adopted to discourage grey water dumping. The sites themselves are grassy, of medium size, and generally have shade from tree cover. There is not much screening vegetation between sites. The sites are more closely spaced than at most other Minnesota state parks. Vehicle permits are required, $5 per day or $25 per year, for each vehicle. This being a large, heavily used facility, DNR staff are present in force during peak times, and a number of interpretive programs are offered, especially on weekends. Though we did not have any problems with overzealous enforcement, our sense overall was that compliance was expected with the many DNR policies given lip service at other parks. Bears have been an ongoing problem at this park. There have also been ongoing problems with other opportunistic wildlife, raccoons, etc. Finally, this park was part of a demonstration project in the 1940s that resulted in the construction of some unusually luxurious cabins and group facilities, which remain in place. - Jammer
