As a State Park it really was well kept & clean. We enjoyed our spacious campsite, camp fire & the amazing view of the night sky. We were well aware of the water issue before we arrived. They did make allowance for the water issue they are experiencing. They are working on locating a new water source & we look forward to adding this as a stop on our future trips. We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed just overnight in route home, which is only reason value was rated low. About 5 miles easy drive off I-90, but worth the trip to use a state park. Park grounds and facilities appeared to be very well maintained. Paved roads, gravel sites and good power. Time of year allowed for not needing reservations, lots of choices for camp sites and easy use of dump station. We would stay here again. Close by to Luverne for most anything needed and easy access back onto I-90 in either direction. We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park along I-90, about four miles off the freeway. Beautiful grounds with mowed lawns and spacious sites. Easy to get into with out 22' RV. Bathrooms and showers were some of the best I've seen with state/national parks. Sites were gravel/sand and not very level, but I've been to worse. Would stay here again for a few nights. We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean state park. The restrooms and showers were immaculate. Big sites that were easy to get in and out of with our 34' motorhome and toad. Only a few miles off from I-90. Great place to spend a quiet night on our long trip out west. Would stay here again if we come this way. Price reflects a $5 state park pass fee. We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Level, loose dirt-gravel fill sites. No water on site but several facets about the loop paved drives. Bathhouse very nice and fairly new and clean. Lush grass and trees. Right by a dammed up stream with rushes and wildlife at base of a reddish quartzite cliff. Swimming beach and picnic area down the road, and buffalo viewing area close by. Dump site by main campground road. Price was $18, but a daily $6 Minnesota parks entry fee make it really $24 a night. There are long trails along a long ridge with cliffs that would be great to hike though I didn't have time to do so. We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

Access would be tight for a 45' motorhome. Beware the 50 amp designation, as it is really a 30 and 20 amp outlet with ground fault interrupters. If you have a motorhome or a trailer that can't plug into a ground fault outlet then you will not have electricity. We loved the trails and the bison herd. We camped here in a 40' Motorhome, but unfortunately we had no electricity on a hot and humid night. We would give a park a rating of 8 if we had a true 50 amp site. We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

Very pretty state park with convenient (only 4 miles) access to I-90. We also wished we had more time here--the trails looked very nice. We also appreciated the clean (and pretty new) showerhouse and recycling program. We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent state park. We stopped on our way to the Black Hills in South Dakota. This is a great campground with an awesome waterfall and wonderful hiking trails. I only wish we had more time to stay! We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Travel Trailer.

You need a state park sticker and to reserve on line will cost another $8.50. Great place to hike and bike. Lots of open space and birds. Former home of author Fredrick Mannfred is located on south side of this 1500+ acre park. Swimming hole, and buffalo herd is also here. It is not far from the Jeffery Petrographs (30 miles). Would stay again if traveling this direction. Not far from Gariston SD where Jesse James is supposed to have jumped the Rock River on horseback. We camped at Blue Mounds State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
