Very nice quiet park. Most sites were occupied but we still had some privacy in our site. Many families with children but not noisey. Restrooms and showers were clean and in good condition. Showers had hot water! There is no phone or internet in this park...nice way to get off the grid and enjoy nature. - N8MD

If you enjoy lush, wooded and private campsites, you'll enjoy this. We went for 3 days and took my mom in an RV. We hiked on some very nice trails and learned so much about the restoration of the natural habitat including grasses and wild flowers from the very nice and knowledgeable camp host. He was amazing and took us through the restored fields and pointed out all the beautiful flowers that were blooming and how they collect the seeds to sow. The park is very blessed to have this man as he is a volunteer and passionate about this beautiful park. He is willing and happy to teach. - Terry Hunsaid

We had a wonderful time here. Could have been less rain and himidity, but that's the way it goes. The roads are great for bike riding and running. The trails to the river are a little overgrown and not disability supportive. The host was terrific!
The raccoons are quite used to people and all garbarge and food needs to be put away at night. - octothorp

This was a womdeful stay, way off the beaten path. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The store was handy. We enjoyed visiting with our neighbors and took advantage of their farmhouse worship service. This was our first visit to Minnesota and we met some wonderful ambassadors. Great internet service. The campground is an a peaceful valley with a nearby stream. It was child, horse and dog friendly. - MEJ

It was awesome. Loved sitting by the stream, the quiet, the owners are awesome. Only things missing were showers and laundry but that goes with most places. We will definitely be back and be telling our friends. LOVE IT. - Fern Salzwedel

We were looking for somewhere to stay after touring the Mystery Caves and this place was great. Lots of grass, 30 amp electrical, very nice people, family friendly, and quiet. I think some sites have water and sewer but ours didn't and that was fine. - DonHov

Decent for Fairgrounds Camping. Water, electric, dump station, wifi. No other amenities. No attendant, place money in mailbox. - Legends Of America

No reservations, first come, first served. Closed 7/19-24 for the Fair. One 50 amp next to building and six 30 amp. Water available. Dump. Two sites under trees. Relatively quiet except for a 5:30 am wake up as the local bus starts and runs for a half hour before leaving with the park and ride folks. Dogs loved the place as there are lots of critters around. An ace in the hole for us since we didn't have any reservations for the 4th weekend and everyplace was full. Nice bike/walking trail goes by CG. - bilmo

Knowing that this park isn't your typical holiday family getaway, we chose this for our Friday before Labor Day stop. See my 7/15 review for a more detailed description of this park. Fortunately, we were able to get a level, FHU, pull through, satellite friendly site for just Friday night. The bath facilities were clean. This is a nice, well kept park that doesn't have any recreational amenities to draw families. - Jerry S

The campground is clean and well maintained. Easy access to I-90. Fairly quiet for good sleeping. The sites are pretty tight as well as some of the roads. Sites are gravel. Many of the roads are gravel, some are paved. Wifi was ineffective. Verizon very good. Good for an overnight or two. - RoadtripImages dot com

This is a very nice park, located close enough to highway to be convenient, but not noisy. No amenities but is great if you are there for medical or just to check out Rochester. Easy in and out, and nice sized sites. Very well kept. Would stay here anytime in the area. - JudynJoe

We stayed here one night as we traveled through Minnesota. It's a pretty park with lots of trees and grass. The park is kind of cut in half by the road. The office building and some of the RV sites are on the right side of the road as you come down the street, and the pool and other camping sites are on the left inside of a fence. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. Terrific people! We had a medical emergency and one of them drove us to the hospital so we wouldn't have to pay for a taxi. My daughter loved the pool and the playground. There were several large balls and other pool toys available for the kids to play with. We camped there in a motorhome. - RVfamof3

NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY. Trees caught the top of our rig when we checked in, but we made it and they said they would trim them. It rained over night the site flooded with water, and the next day when leaving the trees damaged our rig. We struggled to get out of the campground and they never once offered to help. The management acted as if it were our fault and took no responsibility in maintaining the trees. My guess is they sell the walnuts and didn't want to lose any by trimming them. Unfortunately, now they will have an insurance claim because it. Nice place but I was very disappointed in the management and their lack customer service. Our experience in the midwest has been so good - I hate this put a damper on it. - Wigglelock

We stayed here on our way home. The campground is easy to get to and yet far enough off the interstate to avoid all the traffic noise. We had a back in site, but the site behind us was open so the host just had us drive through. We didn't even bother to unhook our tv, so we would be ready to leave in the morning a little faster. The main office and showers are across the street from most of the camping sites. It is an odd configuration, but the street is a quiet residential street with no real traffic on it. - User3641

(Price is an estimate) The park as a whole was nice. The Old Barn itself was neat, and it had a nice restaurant inside (although not cheap). Our site was right beside the full-timers on the front row, and maneuvering to back the travel trailer was pretty tight. If we had arrived later and there would have been other tow vehicles parked, it would have been very difficult. The space was clean, but not very level front to back; one end of out trailer was very high in the air. There was a fire ring, but we weren't able to use it due to how close it was to the back of our camper; we didn't want any embers to get on the awning. The staff was very pleasant, and the park was clean. Nearby Lanesboro was very nice with a lot of neat things to do. - joshnichols84

A very pretty location, with the huge barn, now converted into restaurant/bar/resort offices at the top of a bluff overlooking the surrounding river valleys. We camped during early season, so were one of the few people there. Resort has covered pool (didn't use), 18 hole golf course, limited access to on property trout stream, located right on the regional bike trail. Campsites are terraced in the hillside going down to river. Large to very large grass sites - lots of space to spread out. Most are very flat and level. Road signs to sites non-existent. May be difficult to very difficult to back into sites when CG is very full, due to single lane roads. Only weak cell service at the Barn bluff, and in highest loop - "A". No service anywhere else in campground. No WiFi at all. TV antenna picked up 13 channels, however. Trash at one end of CG, which can be a very long trek from some sites (no site pickup). 50% seasonal campers, but all very, very well maintained. 2 Day minimum stay (3 on Holidays) required. Restroom/Bath houses old cinderblock, in need of updating, but clean and functional. Coin operated showers. - Flapper

We camped here with some friends. I guarantee none of us will be back.
1) The roads to the campsites are narrow with a lot of hills. We had a lot of trouble backing into our site due to the huge incline right in front of our site, the narrow road where the edges are washed out, and trees on the site. The highlight of our stay was a resort staff person came out to help guide us out the backside of our site onto the narrow road without plunging (and I mean plunging) over the huge hill on the other side of it after getting stuck in the mud as we tried to center our camper. We couldn't fit our trailer and tow vehicle on the site. Fire pits are located under the trees.
2) Our friends were on the site next to us, and their sewer and electric were right where they're supposed to be, but their water hookup was with ours, and they had to run a hose under their trailer and across their site to get to it. It was really a hassle not to trip over it.
3) There is a bar/restaurant. It is small and busy. The food is mediocre and expensive for what you get. I ordered chips and salsa/cheese - jarred salsa and canned cheese that you get at a ballpark, and I paid around $8 for it. The waitress was crabby, unfriendly and had very little patience for indecisive people.
There is very little for older kids to do here. There is a playground, but it is small and geared toward small children. There is an indoor pool, which is open after Labor Day, but really nothing else unless you golf. There was a huge tournament going on the weekend we stayed and couldn't get on the course, and they have no driving range. The oddest part of this "resort" was there is no camp store, and you actually check in for camping at the bar.
There are lots of campsites, but only 3 inconveniently located near bathrooms/showers. I never made it to them as they were all too far to walk to - luckily we have a full bathroom in our rig.
We won't be back. - TT Mom

Very robust park... LOTS of amenities. Unfortunately, when one just wants a place to stay overnight, and not keep the kids occupied on a family vacation, one doesn't care about all the amenities, nor the $50+ nightly charge. It's a very clean park and the office staff is very friendly. The park is very clean, many sites have cable. Wifi is pretty much only available at the office. - Gator67

Lets start with the positives: the kids enjoyed the jumping pillow and the water slides. Negatives: the pool was about a quarter the size it should be for a park this size. My wife and I could not sit while our kids were in the pool. The sites were very small our awning was almost touching the awning of the camper beside us and as we tried to sit around our fire pit we were actually sitting in the neighbors campsite. The "lakes" were small and had so many campers packed around them that you can't get to them to fish or even see them on a walk. The biggest disappointment was the tubing river. It is a creek. You can't tube. Even if you could they had used it as a dump. Someone dumped old construction waste in the creek bed. - Twinbluebird

Some of the best, kindest and hardest working owners/staff we've ever seen. Improvements appear to always be happening to this park. Brand new main lodge. New cabins were just being finished while we were here. And they were just putting the finishing touches on their "premium" sites, which feature narrow pond-side back-in sites on class 5 and uniquely curved concrete patio slabs. Sites at south end of park are nicely shaded and appear to be good for small groups, if you choose. Conveniently located right off I-90, but little highway noise detectable. Pool and water-slide area is nice, but way too small to handle demand on most days. Good mix of seasonal, temporary and cabins. While shade is abundant on most sites, sites are very narrow. Sites with sewer hookup are also rare and resort does not appear to offer honey-wagon service. Polite, family-oriented atmosphere with bikes and carts scurrying about. Never any noise at night. Everything is a very short walk away. Center of park features a nice pond with fountain and paddle boats, where kids try their hand at panfish and the occasional turtle. There is no beach. If the water is high enough, you can take a short float down the creek that surrounds the park. If you're bringing kids, be sure to pack light tackle, small nets, bikes and maybe even rubber boots. Bike trails attach to park. Themed weekends and other activities are listed in their website. As with most campgrounds these days, you can NOT bring in your own firewood. Jellystone Austin charges what we think is a steep $5 for a bundle of wood. - jorn

Sylvan Park Campground is part of River View Campground. River view is directly across the street from Sylvan. At River View, there are no restrooms, and only 2 portapotty's in poor condition. The road into Sylvan is torn up to replace a sewage line into the elementary school which shares the same parking lot as Sylvan's campground and city park. Neither campground had a host, and we were in desperate need to assistance when on the first night camped there, a major tree limb fell on our 5th wheel. The old restroom at the Sylvan Park was poorly kept and unclean. No showers. - mitig8er

This park is in town and close to everything the town offers. They do not take reservations and they fill up fast on weekends. During the week the bathrooms are kept acceptably clean, but on weekends it doesn't appear that they are maintained; sinks and countertops were dirty. Will stay here again for the convenience. - Camping Luvr

We found this to be a very nice campground. Only about 1 block from the heart of the downtown district, so we walked or biked to our activities. The campground is part of a city park. The main campground road was paved, the sites are gravel and most seemed to be level. It was quiet and friendly. No reservations taken, first come first serve. Restrooms were not as modern or clean as we would have liked, although the 2nd set of restrooms/showers at the community center were much cleaner and more modern; they are located at the park entrance. Farmers market at the park on Saturday, and several Amish vendors all day Fri/Sat, so we had lots of fresh veggies and bakery items. We would stay here again. - skate
