9 RV Parks near Richmond, Minnesota

Rating reflects no cable and no wifi at sites. But for money it is a great place to camp. Huge sites, grassy and well kept. Fire pits and tables. Mostly seasonal campers with permanent sites but there is still room for the drop ins. Road down to water , office,and pool a bit narrow. Watch speed bumps. Owners are pleasant and welcoming; they live on site and are available. Bar and restaurant on premises and food was good. Lots of weekend special events for people. Would return here. - Jmh510

This is an off the beaten path location which is absolutely beautiful chain of lakes. Boaters bring your boats. This campground has many seasonal sites but does offer a special new street of back in sites with full hookups and good satellite coverage. Campground has marina, launch, indoor pool and bar. They have no dedicated website so a call is in order. We will likely return to this area. - jones4110

This was our first visit to El Rancho. There were fun planned activities for our children, however the campground itself was not very kid friendly. Very small playground only for very little children. The swimming beach got very crowded with other campers. The campground itself was too large and spread out, not an easy walk to the main lodge. It was nearly impossible pushing our jogging stroller because the roads were so sandy. Therefore our older children couldn't use their scooters or bikes because of all the sand and unevenness. The campsites we and our other party had were very uneven. We had full hookups but the campsite was so tight and uneven it was hard to empty our tanks at the end of the stay. Neither us or the other party we camped with had picnic tables either. So we are our meals separately in our own campers - Jberg82

Nice setting, with relaxed feel. Some of the sites were tight and uneven. Horse riding was expensive, but kids enjoyed it. You can also walk the horse trails but not real smooth. Overall we enjoyed. - RVP CAMPER

Ours was a single overnight visit while traveling. While far from physically ideal for overnights, this is an amazing campground basically directed to horse-campers, trail hikers, small boat fans, and family outings of more than one or two nights. For those uses, our scoring would be two steps higher. The facilities are rustic but well-maintained. The staff is friendly, helpful, and very concerned that one enjoys one's visit. Our stay was at the end of the season, and the campground was largely empty. We would have no hesitation about visiting again. - nasa42a

Very nice wooded sites. Lots of privacy. It was kind of inconvenient to have to cross a highway to access the baseball field and beach. There is no RV camping on the lake side, just tents. Very strict on quiet times, almost too strict. There was no complaints on us, but the manager came twice to tell us that we needed to be quieter. We were just sitting around the campfire talking, not being loud at all. Lots of games to keep the kids busy. We didn't go on any hikes, but there were numerous trails to go hiking on. Very nice campground, just remember to keep it to a whisper at quiet times. We would visit here again. - Kristine Birkholz

This is a hidden gem if your passing along I-94 and need to stay overnight. 50 amp & Water for $15/night pay box at campground. Right along the banks of the Sauk River, river sites only have 20 or 30 amp there are 4 sites with 20, 30 & 50 amp, next to ball diamond. One pedastal for every two sites, so some utilities on opposite side of most trailers or RV's. No checkout time, no reservations, 7 night maximum stay. Nice grassy park with gravel pads, level sites. The four sites by the ball diamond are big rig accessible. No sewer hookups, but a nice dump station is available. Verizon data speed 3.34 mbps. Able to get satellite TV reception at our site. - dmkimm

Stayed here a few weeks ago. It started off with an awful smell in the office upon checking in. Things did not get much better. The place is very run down. It is overloaded with seasonals that are run down, and there is junk everywhere. They need to cut back the branches of most trees to prevent trees scratching your camper. Site was level. People party all night here. We will not be back. - jejmjj5

What is with all the terrible reviews? It also appears many of the reviews are for another campground in the area because AJ Acres doesn't even have a pool. I wouldn't believe what you are reading on here because it seems many of the reviews are not for this campground but rather a different campground in Clearwater. For some clarification, YES this campground has dirt roads, when it is dry they can be dusty and when it rains they can be a bit muddy, but you are camping-if you want tar and concrete camp in your backyard. No pool but a large beach. It is camping you will encounter dirt and bugs. You don't want it get a hotel. This is a great place to camp but be prepared to CAMP!!! They have amenities so it isn't like you are roughing it. Water, electric, fully stocked store, beach, bait, fishing pier, shower houses, swing sets, etc. Not first class like a resort but great for a family weekend out of the city to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. We camped here several times a year and keep coming back. - campit

We decided not to stay here once we had a conversation with the lady at the front desk. We stopped in at about 8PM just looking for a place to park and sleep and be on our way by 8AM the next morning. The individual was very rude and really didn't want us to stay. It was if it was to much work and when she gave me the price for 7 people she had the nerve to say you might as well stay at a hotel because it will be cheaper. From the outside things looked nice but if that is how people in Minnesota treat people passing through, - Cudpal

Camped here with a large group. We had reserved a block of sites together many months in advance, but when we arrived they had moved us around and given away some of our sites. The Rally Center building is very nice and handy to use for group meals and gatherings, especially if it's raining. The restrooms in the Rally Center were very clean, but the light in them is very dim. The sites came with full hook ups and a pull through gravel pad, but they aren't very wide sites. The picnic tables are tiny. Each site has a sunken, small fire pit oddly located just a couple feet from the road, posing a hazard for anyone walking between sites, especially in the dark. There was a nice, large, fire pit in a large open area across from our group's sites that we were able to use. There is a pool but it is closed this late in the year. Aside from a couple of minor nuisances, all in all a pretty decent camp ground. - Juniper94

50 amp, FHU, pull-through site. Very nice, well maintained park. Many OTA TV signals available, WIFI sporadic at times. Escort to site. Although this is a nice place it is somewhat pricey for an overnight at $42 including taxes and with a discount at that. I doubt we would return if a less expensive option were available in the area. - Bob & Stephanie

Very good value at this park. Host was very friendly. Were guided into our pull through spot. park has nice gravel roads and sites. All connections easy to get at. Water pressure decent. Wifi pretty good. Roads had great signage for getting in and out. Would highly recommend this park. - North America in 90 days

An overnight stop. All utilities used and all worked well. - Sewmom

Level gravel site. Just long enough for our MH and trailer. A tree between sites provided some shade. We needed to use our sewer line extension as the hook-up was at the very end of the site. Cost for washer/dryers was high ($1.75) but machines were clean and in good working order. Laundry room itself was clean and decorated. We stayed 3 nights and our one criticism would be the dog walk area. They have a perfect area for a fenced park but no real area exists now. - Boomerific

Hard to get a campground in this area. Weekends impossible!
The mgr said, well it's a short season and the locals camp every chance.
So this appears to have been a KOA and barely maintained. Sites have not been leveled for awhile. Hookups are far from middle, so my 35' electric cord was enough.
Locals let their kids run wild at night until we yelled at them to go to their site.
Got up this morning and someone let their big dog poop at the front of our site and not clean up.
Will not see us again! But when you are sold out, do you think they care? - Sir_Charles395

This is a decent park but with a few issues. The pool, clubhouse, volley ball and basketball courts are all very nice amenities. There is also a storm shelter under the clubhouse, which we did have to use on night as a storm came through, with a tornado warning attached. The roads getting into the park are a little narrow with a lot of tree branch overhang. Fortunately, we never met any one coming or going. Not sure how that would have turned out?
The sites are pretty much just grass, but very spacious, and the hookup are excellent. And my site, #79, and many of the other sites are not very level. I could not get my front end low enough to get completely level, but it worked out. The lake at the park is not really usable. But there is a great lake just a short distance away (Green Lake) in the town of Spicer and it is really nice with a public sand beach.
The park seems to be mostly used by seasonal tenants who leave their RV here all season. We arrived on a Saturday and our reserved spot was the last site left in the park. By Sunday evening, the park was like a ghost town. All the seasonal people went home (their RVs were still here). But it did make for a nice and quiet four days for us. And of course this is Minnesota in the summer time, so bring plenty of mosquito repellent. While I wish there were more options for parks in this area, I would stay certainly stay here again. - littleapple

We have stayed here in the past and loved it. This time only 9 spaces available for overnight stays as they have let permanent seasonal takeover 95% of the park (and the best spots). Assigned 2 different spots and both times it was already occupied but finally got settled in an unlevel spot. Wish there were more options available in the immediate area. - Travelingfriends

This is a very nice, quiet campground with large, green grassy sites. You have to drive through the lower campground to get to the office, which is a little confusing. All of the sites in the upper campground are seasonal, as well as several in the lower campground. There are only small trees on the sites which wouldn't provide much shade. We couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work. There is a pool, game room, large playground, volleyball court, and horseshoes. The restrooms/showers attached to the main lodge building are finished nicely and are clean, but were not well maintained, as at least one was out of toilet paper. The showers in the adjacent building are large but still bare concrete. All showers require quarters to operate. I would have given this campground a ten if they didn't charge you to use the showers after you've already paid to camp there, and if the Wi-Fi worked. - Juniper94

What a find! Speak we arrived in this county park for just a one night stay and wish we had known how unique it was to plan at least a week. The campers were very much campers and were enjoying the out-of-doors at the family atmosphere here. A mixture of tense and RVs and very happy families. The sides could easily hold big rigs and were spacious. They included electric hook up for an additional charge and 10 sites had water all have picnic tablesand fire rings. Because the park is small it makes heading to the beach easy. If you have a boat there is a boat launch on site. With so many people out on the water fishing, tubing, and waterskiing. Many locals come this way so reservations would be needed in advance especially for weekend stays. We would certainly return here if the opportunity arises. We highly recommend this location for families, seniors, and anybody wants a little bit of tranquility. There is a dump station on site as there are no sewer connections at the campsite. - John-Jean
