2 Parks near Rochester, Minnesota
Jul 2015 - $35.00
We stayed here a week while having tests at Mayo Clinic. Absolutely the perfect place to stay. Only about 10-15 minutes from the clinic and a $5 round trip shuttle is available if desired. We had a tow vehicle so we opted to drive and utilize the $25 weekly Mayo parking pass but otherwise it is $12/day. We had a back-in basic site (Site 52) which was gravel but level both side to side and front to back. Site was plenty sufficient for slides and awning. In the Basic site area, the trees were very young which provided for good satellite access. Our site was near the front of the park and the road noise from a major artery some have noted was no problem. There are two laundry rooms, one with 2 washers and dryers and the main one with 4 washers and dryers. Both very clean and cost $1.50 wash and 40 min dry. They are very accommodating for Mayo patients. You don't even designate your length of stay. Just check in and the site is yours until you check out and you pay for the length of stay. Lady in the office is a jewel. Definitely would stay here again whether going to Mayo or just visiting the area. - ojnark

I was surprised when I realized that it had been 8 years since we have stayed here. We stayed here on weekday night in early July and the park was maybe 60% full. The park has more than doubled in the number of sites since our last stay and has a newer building with a modern laundry, bathrooms, and a rally room. The original office building where you register also has a small laundry and bathroom facilities. The older section of the park is fairly heavily treed and half back-in and half pull-through sites. The newer section is open (good for satellite reception) with both back-in and pull-through sites. I believe all sites are level, gravel, full hookups with decent length and width. We were in the newer section and the Internet worked well for us. As others have noted, many of the customers and most of the numerous extended stay customers are here for the Mayo Clinic. While we were they occupied most of the old section sites. There is nothing (pool, playground, etc.) here for kids. The park no longer provides cable TV. Long term customers can make arrangements with Comcast to get service. I thought $42 a night was a bit expensive for a park with no pool or cable. - Jerry S

This is my first visit in this park. We were in town for surgery at St Mary's hospital. The sites are a little close and some road noise but otherwise we were impressed. The park was nicely laid out with mature trees and picnic tables. There is a nice little dog walk and two laundry rooms. The office lady couldn't of been more helpful. We are new to Mayo Clinic and she gave us great info about the clinic including the floors we needed to go. I hope the owners know what a gem she is. If was much appreciated that she took the time to help us. - bank manager 1997

Pros - park is extremely well kept, staff member personally guided us to our site as well as backed us in. The store seemed to be stocked very well and was just across the street from the sites. When purchasing firewood ($7/bundle), staff member delivered wood to site. Pool, small playground, small leash-free dog area and three disc golf baskets are available for recreation.
Cons - not very private, all sites are very close together, no trees or anything to maintain any privacy. Campground is very close to the highway, so there is a lot of highway noise throughout the day. Staff seemed slightly abrasive. No hiking trails available.
Overall - pretty good spot if needing a place to stay overnight, perhaps when passing through. Would not recommend if staying for more than one night, or if you really want some privacy. - joshnichols84

We found this to be a very clean and well maintained park. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. Has a very well stocked campground store. The laundry room has new machines and is clean and well furnished. We will stay here again when passing through this area. - JohnMc

Average for us. Seemed cramped. Good for overnight only. Worth driving off Interstate for no traffic noise. - Oregon91
