Very nice park, plenty of trees and seclusion between campsites. Site was big enough to fit our 34' trailer and two other vehicles with plenty of room left over. Bathroom/showers very nice. Nice roads. Great canoeing on the Rum river. Playground for the kids with plenty of hiking trails. Climb up the fire tower for a nice view of the area. There is a swimming beach area, but we did not use due to the weather being cool. Looked nice for smaller children. We camped at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground with room for big rigs. The park now has a dump station. Hosts and other staff are friendly. Remember to bring bug repellent. Lots of mosquitos. Clean showers and restrooms. We camped at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely wooded Minnesota park! We enjoyed seeing several deer including twin fawn. Good sleep is available here with no traffic or train noise. The bathrooms were very new and clean but unheated so we didn't brave the showers. We'd definitely return to Kathio State Park! We camped at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in a Travel Trailer.

One of the larger State Parks in MN. Friendly park staff. Lots of room between sites. More room between non electric sites. Clean shower house. Road is well maintained. No problem for big rigs. Lots of wildlife. Only thing missing is a dump station. We camped at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is very clean and has that up North feel, with lots of trees. We were lucky enough to get an electric site on short notice for one night as we had reserved a cabin earlier in the year for Saturday night. We moved our tent to the driveway because the folks behind us would have been too close even though the sites are really spacious. The cabin was really nice and clean. I wish we had been able to utilize the trails and check out the lake, but we had another agenda. The campground is about 3 miles from the entrance and we had to watch for deer at night. People do come and go as the Casino is just up the road. Bathrooms were really clean. Would have rated this campground a 10 if they had a dump station. We will definitely return, but with our travel trailer. We camped at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in a Tent.

We camped in the Petaga Campground in a nice pull-through site. Many very nice sites here suitable for a larger Class A. Each is private and has woods around it but you won't feel closed in. This is the 4th largest Minnesota State Park and has many miles of great hiking trails. Facilities were kept clean. Very nice interpretive center with interesting exhibits. There are many activities here (swimming, playground, hiking, watching movies, etc). We camped at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in a Motorhome.

Perfect site to camp with nature. The sites are well spaced and shaded. The shower/restroom is new and spotless. The park has many walking/biking trails and a nice center to learn with the rangers. The deer and other animals are abundant and easy to view. We try to visit this park a few times each year and are never disappointed. We camped at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park took us by surprise. Originally this was just to be an overnight stop on our trip to Northern Minnesota - but we found this is a destination park in and of itself. We could easily spend 2-3 days here on their hiking tails, swimming at the beach, and joining interpretative events. Sites were generally quite nice in the Petaga Campground. Sites 41, 43, and 46 are pull-throughs, level and have good space for awnings, slide-outs, and fires. All sites are "in the woods" so they are sheltered from each other. No highway noise either. Cell phone and Blackberry coverage. Facilities were clean and attractive. We camped at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park in a Motorhome.
