5 Parks near Le Roy, Minnesota

People at Ranger Station are very nice and helpful. Nearby Mystery Cave is interesting but not as colorful as some caves we've seen.
Firewood is available at Ranger Station. Elect. No water or sewer at sites.
River for fishing was within park boundaries although we needed to drive to the fishing site (at picnic ground - ask ranger for specifics).
Sites are close together. Despite green buffer between sites, we could hear the people in the adjoining site's endless chatter.
Our site was so level we didn't need to do anything while connected to our tow vehicle! - Cory S

Wooded campsites with great screening (trees and other vegetation) between sites, especially on outer ring of electric sites. All sites reservable despite older maps online and at park that say otherwise. No self-registration at park kiosk, and no cell phone reception in park, so best to reserve ahead (online or by phone) before arrival. Vehicle permit can be bought at park office or self-registered at kiosk. Bathroom facility with lockable doors opening to outside of shower house, thus very safe and private. Hilly topography, many winding hiking trails mostly through woods, great birding, trout streams (some shallow and good for wading or dog swimming), no mosquitoes. Horses also camp at park and use some but not all of trails. Activities include tours of restored 1899 village with costumed actors, as well as varied tours of cave just outside of park. Firewood for sale at park office; unused bundles can be sold back to office. - Susi Nehls

We really enjoyed the State Park. The site we had was a tough one to back into, but we made it. The park has a lot of nice sites and they are all now reserveable now in advance. I would strongly recommend having a reservation here if you plan on staying on a weekend. We went and did the cave tour and also visited Historic Forestville. We enjoyed Historic Forestville much more. Like previous reviews say, there is no cell service. You can go to the top of the hill a couple of miles away and get service to make calls. We would definitely go here again. - PackerFanRick

Beautiful site. I wouldn't say real spacious, but good enough for us. We stayed in a beautiful site about 30 ft. from Forestville Creek. Fishing yes - happy kid noise playing in very shallow part of the river, YES.
Very nice store. Owners very nice. Pit toilets were very clean. - Cory S

Love this campground. Beautiful setting and very peaceful. Owners are friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that they do not have a dump station on site. But that's no real big problem because Forestville State Park is literally next door...and you can dump there for $5.00. Visit this campground..you will love it. - GrandmaLee

Friendly staff, okay campground. Internet is free, but not very good. Only water and electric - not even a dump on site. You would have to borrow a wheel-dump-tank, drain your tank then drag it over to the toilet to dump. Price reflects Passport America. We stayed only one night. - Fulltime2kids

Very robust park... LOTS of amenities. Unfortunately, when one just wants a place to stay overnight, and not keep the kids occupied on a family vacation, one doesn't care about all the amenities, nor the $50+ nightly charge. It's a very clean park and the office staff is very friendly. The park is very clean, many sites have cable. Wifi is pretty much only available at the office. - Gator67

Some of the best, kindest and hardest working owners/staff we've ever seen. Improvements appear to always be happening to this park. Brand new main lodge. New cabins were just being finished while we were here. And they were just putting the finishing touches on their "premium" sites, which feature narrow pond-side back-in sites on class 5 and uniquely curved concrete patio slabs. Sites at south end of park are nicely shaded and appear to be good for small groups, if you choose. Conveniently located right off I-90, but little highway noise detectable. Pool and water-slide area is nice, but way too small to handle demand on most days. Good mix of seasonal, temporary and cabins. While shade is abundant on most sites, sites are very narrow. Sites with sewer hookup are also rare and resort does not appear to offer honey-wagon service. Polite, family-oriented atmosphere with bikes and carts scurrying about. Never any noise at night. Everything is a very short walk away. Center of park features a nice pond with fountain and paddle boats, where kids try their hand at panfish and the occasional turtle. There is no beach. If the water is high enough, you can take a short float down the creek that surrounds the park. If you're bringing kids, be sure to pack light tackle, small nets, bikes and maybe even rubber boots. Bike trails attach to park. Themed weekends and other activities are listed in their website. As with most campgrounds these days, you can NOT bring in your own firewood. Jellystone Austin charges what we think is a steep $5 for a bundle of wood. - jorn

VERY kid friendly campground. There are quite a few Seasonal Sites in the middle of the park. We arrived late but received a very friendly welcome from the staff working at the time. Long pull-thru site. Bathrooms were spotless. Showers were too. Shower was big, private, spotless, and HOT. Many activities available for kids including a petting zoo up through Labor Day. - MrBill54
