We echo the other reviews for this campground, as its just a basic place to spend the night, or if you are just needing a place to park your rv while you tour the area. No credit cards accepted, cash preferred over checks. We have AT&T and a Hot Spot that worked great, so we never use the park WiFi. No cable, and over the air is hit and miss. The single shower was OK. A bit pricey for what you get, other choices in Two Harbors are better, but plan ahead as they fill up quickly. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice small park, only 25 sites. Our site #25 was the first one in but by far the largest. Next to road to marina but little traffic. Wi-Fi at the office but not at the site; water pressure was a bit low. Otherwise a great little park with just the basics, which is all we need. Oh, and there's a small vintage plane and a UFO! We camped at Knife River Campground in a Motorhome.

We used one of the four pull-through sites with 50 amp service. Most of the others are back-ins with 20/30 amp.

We called ahead and had our site assigned when we got there based upon our needs. We were a short walk from Lake Superior and an excellent nearby restaurant. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Motorhome.

We went to dinner at the very nearby Lighthouse at Emily's restaurant, and can recommend it highly if you want a nice, sit-down dinner with pleasant atmosphere.

This is a very rustic RV park with full hook-ups. It is not MH friendly. We were the only Class A in the park. Gravel sites are not very level. Site did have a picnic table and a fire pit. No laundry room, pool or cable tv. Wi-fi was free but very slow. There is a MH friendly RV park about 5 miles north. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Motorhome.

It appeared that there were only 4 pull through 50 amp sites for larger rigs. We had to drive through a field east of the RV park to get into the pull through site. Site was level and adequate in size. Electric worked fine, but water pressure was low. Owner indicates he keeps it that way on purpose. Apparently someone had something break from unregulated water pressure. Doesn't take credit cards, so demerits for convenience. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park and very friendly and helpful owner. We stayed two weeks due to a mechanical breakdown. It was the busy season and sites were very limited. The owner had to have someone move our 5th wheel twice because the sites were reserved. As far as the campground is concerned, it is an older campground. Good electric but low water pressure. Satellite worked fine. Verizon data and voice signals were weak but not terrible. Beautiful area to visit. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy access for big rigs, pet friendly, large level sites, no extra fees. Park is well maintained, clean and quiet. Owner is friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Park is walking distance to marina, Lake Superior beach, bar/restaurant, and candy store. We would stay here again. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent RV park with Emily's restaurant, Knife River Candy, just across street from Emily's, Russ Kendahl's smoke fish shop, Knife River marina, and public beach access to Lake Superior. All above is with-in walking of RV park. Owner is hands on, most of the day in his office. Always to help and friendly. Four spots are 50 amp full hock up. You would be wise to call ahead. We stayed for 2 weeks and the 50 amp were taken every night. Some traffic in the area but well off the main highway to the north shore. Quiet at night. We will stay here again. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Motorhome.

People were friendly, the restroom was clean, if you like to be close to the trailer next to you, this is the place to be. Some of the trailers were less than 4 feet apart. The 50 amp sites were in a gravel parking lot. We will not return. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great RV park for a Big Rig. But only has 4 sites w/ 50 amp service. Friendly owners live on site, good security. Make sure you call well ahead for space. Good rates. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Motorhome.

What a wonderful campground!! This was our first time staying here and we did not want to leave Sunday morning. The owners are great people and the location is perfect. We are already thinking of booking a month at this campground next year!! We camped at Knife River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
