Nice County Park with all the amenities. Great place for kids. Big sites fairly secluded. Easy drive into the cities. We camped at Chain of Lakes Regional Park, Rice Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park. Gravel sites, picnic tables, fire pits and grills. Sites are large and semi private. They have back in and pull thrus. Great for biking and walking. Big rigs are not a problem. We camped at Chain of Lakes Regional Park, Rice Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Arrived after hours because a different reservation fell through. The camp host was wonderfully helpful and the campsites were spacious. There are trees and tall grasses separating the sites so you might see one neighbor at most. As with most campgrounds in Minnesota there are mosquitoes everywhere. We camped at Chain of Lakes Regional Park, Rice Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Another great county park. There is easy access from I35. All sites are gravel, level, big rig easy, electric, water and dump station. Our site was very private as we noticed most sites are very large, treed privacy, dark, grass, firepits and table. Really appreciate that grass is trimmed, bugs are minimal and staff are extremely friendly and efficient. This is a real gem for rvers and tenters. We camped at Chain of Lakes Regional Park, Rice Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest county campgrounds we have visited. Level well maintained sites, great bike / walking trails and close to shopping. Sites are large and separated by trees and foliage. The only reason for the 9 instead of a ten is the cost of $7 to make a reservation PLUS a 5 per day ($25 per year) county use fee. For a site without a sewer hook up it is pretty pricey for a one time one week stay. We would stay here again without hesitation!

Large semi private campsites. Good camping and biking trails. There is a lake with swimming beach and play grounds for the kids. Great place to stay - plan on coming back next year. Only reason it's not a 10, is they could use larger bathrooms. If your self contained it's a 10. We camped at Chain of Lakes Regional Park, Rice Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We overnighted here in a pull-through (site A2). Peaceful and nicely laid out so that you have a good distance from your neighbor. The bathhouse was on the other side of the park and all we had nearby were two porta-potties, which were full of biting flies. I'd stay again for an overnight, but next time I'd make sure to be near the bathhouse. We camped at Chain of Lakes Regional Park, Rice Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Okay, it is $22 a night for a motorhome pull-through site. If you have a tow vehicle, pay another $5. Those are the rules. This is a state park. And as the government and city/county entities are wringing dollars out of us anyway they can to make up for declining dollars, we will eventually be paying for air. I understand the desperation. What bothers me is will it become the norm? (Sorry for the diatribe). This place is beautiful at this time of year. There are no neighbors. Our dogs have nothing to bark at. It is utterly quiet and secluded. We would stay here again. We camped at Chain of Lakes Regional Park, Rice Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent park for families and pets! We were camped right by the newly updated playground equipment and our daughter had a blast! Sites are very private and well spaced. Would definitely return!! We camped at Chain of Lakes Regional Park, Rice Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This small county campground has level sites that are quite private. None of the roads are paved but they are quite level. We camped on a pull-through site with 50 amp & water. The bathhouse was pretty good with great shower pressure. Getting to the campground was our biggest challenge as there is road construction and a bridge out all around. Take 35E and get off at the road 14 exit...there is no sign in front of the campground so be prepared to call for help. There is a lovely playground.

This is a nice campground, and it is in close proximity to fishing and a golf course. The bathroom facilities were nice and clean. The sites were large and had some privacy. Although the roads and pull-in areas were gravel it was an easy level. The reason I rate it an 8 is that we had to pay an additional $5 a day for our tow car.
