We have been impressed by how much effort my home town has put into making this small campground a great value for the traveling and visiting public. Since there are so few, let me list the CONS first: 1. No reservations. First come, first served. Since we were coming all the way from KS I sent a relative an extra night's payment and they filled out the paperwork and parked one of their vehicles in a spot for us. We feel it was a legit move as we paid for the spot for three nights. 2. No WIFI, No Cable. PROS: 1. It is on the lake! Our windshield and side windows had a great view of the peaceful vista. 2. It had all the necessary services - Good water pressure, choice of 20/30/50 amp 120v which was phased correctly and steady, sewer (what can you say about sewer? It worked). 3. Had a half dozen free airwave channels. 4. Lot's to do within walking distance Community Pool. Fishing Dock. Boat Launch Ramp. Short walk around end of lake to huge city park with volley ball pits, playground equipment, picnic shelters and tables. 5. Did I mention? It is right on the lake! Okay. I moved to Kansas and I miss Minnesota's 10,000 lakes. - HunkyDoryKS

Really nice campground. Many sites are paved. Good over-the-air tv signal and 4-5 bars on horizon. Restrooms were not clean when we arrived, but we complained and they corrected the problem. Would definitely stay here again. - herbee

Each year this campground gets better and better. Still no reservations, only a honor system type box (and daily checks by city staff or so we're told). All spots have a concrete slab and patio, and good solid power / water. Each site also has sewer, making for quite a deal. We'll surely camp here again! - flippet

Great Campground - Plenty of space!
Pulled into this newer campground on a weekend stay in the area. It's fairly new, so all the hookups and facilities still have that "New" feel to them.
There are several play areas for the kids, which were very welcome, and each spot has plenty of "elbow" room from your neighbors.
As was previously said, campfire wood is available on site, and the owners are around to help with anything needed.
Since this is a new campground there is not a lot of shade by the sites yet. I'm sure in a couple years when the tree's take off this will be a lot better, but for now, you'll need to use the awning.
Overall it was a great experience and I'm sure we'll be back. - flippet

This is a very quiet and peaceful campground located on a good fishing lake with a dock, seating and a paddle boat. The owners are on site and very friendly and accommodating. Firewood is available and a bargain. It was very windy 2 or the 4 days we were there, we were on the top of the campground and we were rockin' and rollin'.
For all you quilters or seamstresses they have a very nice club house with several large rooms and 2 ping pong tables. They opened it up for me so I could do some cutting. An awesome facility. You could probably "hog"one room and lock it every night and your stuff would be safe. - chris and jerry

Dirt/gravel/grassy sites and it had recently rained a lot so some sites were very muddy. Some were under water due to flooding. One entrance was closed. There is a camp host on site at the entrance. He told us to park wherever we wanted so we chose a spot backed up to the beautiful golf course. The site was long enough for our 32' plus the truck so we didn't have to unhook. AT&T phones worked great. Park WiFi showed up under connections but it was secured so only being there one night I didn't ask if we could use it. Got plenty of antenna TV channels. Water pressure was the best we've had in months.
Ball park nearby with a game going on but still managed to be peaceful. We were told by neighbors there is a very good Mexican restaurant close by but it was closed because of the flooding. Watona Park was a very pleasant experience. We were there on a Wednesday night and there were only 3 other campers. Some sites were partially/mostly shaded. We would stay there again. - Meesha

We were here on a Saturday evening (after Labor Day) and there were lots of sites available. We have stayed here once before. Although the sites are back-to-back we were able to pull into a pull through space with no one on either side of us. The power is good and the water pressure was just right. The sewer hookup is funky because you unscrew a large plastic tree for the easiest way to empty your holding tanks.
The access roads are black top. This campground is next to a park and golf course; both emptied as the sun went down.
It is self registration so you will need cash or a check. - skigramp

Other than some slight traffic noise from a distance, and an occasional train horn, this campground was very quiet. The sites are narrow but long, grassy, and partially or mostly shaded. They will let you park your camper anywhere on the site that you want to; you're only limited by the length of your electric cord or water hose if you're hooking up. There is a golf course, softball field, soccer field, horse shoe pits, volleyball courts, and a city pool with a water slide. You do have to pay $4 per person to use the pool. The restrooms were well maintained. The only thing we found odd about this campground is the layout. The sites are set up so that you will have the back of your camper to the back of one neighbors camper, but your door facing the door of the other neighbors camper. There is also only one fire pit between the two campers whose doors are facing each other. We camped in a large group of family and friends, so this wasn't a problem, but if you're camping alone it could be awkward. - Juniper94

Right by the lake. Washboard road leads to the park. No water connection, although there is a place to fill up. No sewer connection, but there is a dump station. There is electricity. We picked up some tv stations using our antenna. Campsites are on the grass and the sites aren't well defined. That being said, it's a pleasant place to stay by the lake, quiet and easy southbound access to the highway. No close services, restaurants or grocery stores. Cost was reasonable at $25. - jkp99b

This is a no-frills campground. The sites are grass, and have water and 30 A electric. There is a dump station on the facility. This is right next to the lake but I would not call this lakeside camping, since there is a dirt road between the sites and the lake, and the lake has docks and other areas that people go fishing from.
The camp host has wood and ice available for purchase at a reasonable cost. The sign said $15 for the site but he asked for $20 and I didn't argue Maybe there was some fine print and I wasn't going to stand on principle over $5.
Shower and restroom were clean enough, though could use a coat of paint. Water was warm and strong. Almost no one was here in Mid-August and they do not take reservations. - zDale

This is a very nice campground except for one thing on our particular site...low tree branches that punctured a hole in our roof! 50 amp, sewer, great water pressure, shade and enough over the air tv channels. Good interior gravel roads and fairly quiet. We heard one train in the afternoon and none at night. Easy on and off I-90 and decent free wifi. - Ginny H

Passing through on our way to Yellowstone we found this gem RV Park late on a Saturday night. The owners were friendly and the property is extremely well maintained and offers generous gravelled sites with grassy areas, trees and picnic tables. Our stay was quiet and we would definitely recommend this Park. Auf Wiedersehen! - Sigrid Green

We have stayed here many times over the years. This park has steadily improved from poor to very good over these years. The owners have worked hard to change it from dirt and gravel to good shade and grass sites. A quiet and level place to stay. - W Davidson

This is a city park on the edge of Sleepy Eye lake. There are no water nor electric hookups. The sites are reasonably level and have easy access, and are very large. There are satellite toilets available, and there is a toilet in the nearby pavilion. This is a good overnight park. I would stay here again. - bones1941

We stopped for one night on our way west. We were able to stay hooked up, as our site was pretty level. The campsites are roomy, but not very private. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The dump station is quite "rustic" and gets muddy after a rain. - viddsk

We were looking for a campground in the area to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We camped here on a weeknight in August.
This is a pleasant campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites are a reasonable size, spread across a large field. There are trees for shade and not much privacy. There are electric and rustic sites. There is a dump station.
There's no wifi. There's good ATT and Verizon cell coverage. - dsvt

Great state park. We stayed here over the July 4th weekend, and even though it was very busy, it didn't seem that way. Very quiet during the quiet time. The main campground has paved roads and two different sides, one electric and on non-electric. The sites had gravel pads and all appeared fairly level, ours was almost perfect. Lots of space between each site, but no foliage between. There are lots of nice trees shading most sites. There is a rustic campground more for smaller trailers and tents a bit further down the campground road. The bathrooms are newer and have private shower rooms. Wood was $6.00 for a good sized bundle of hardwood, a good value. Very nice hiking trails. The sand beach chlorine pool is great, what a unique way to design a pool! The "Old Dam Trail" exits the park and ends up at the Schell Brewery. - tslarson

Restroom was dirty! Access to many sites is not easy, particularly in a large rig. Be careful not to park in one of the sites the host said are "Sand Traps", that is, if you can find the host. 30A electric and well water with lots of minerals. Pets are allowed to roam so watch where you step. Dump available, but bring your own hose. It was quiet and shaded. $10 rate was with Passport America. - JCMDT

Wonderful campground! They also double as a county fair location, so no camping during county fair. We stayed for 9 days and 2 of my kids cried when we left. Fishing & Tubing on the river. Game room for kids (needs serious updating though, but my 6 year olds couldn't of cared less). Two playgrounds, horseshoe pits, walking trails along river, bingo Saturday nights. We will go back again and again. Owner and his wife are one in a million. Cons: At least a 15 minute drive to nearest town with a grocery store. - jen_hornaman
