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

For the price and convince, this spot can't be beat. There are no reservations, so it sometimes fills up. All the sites are great, and offer full hookups. Some have concrete pads for the rig, as well as the patio. The bathroom and shower are very basic. We will stay 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

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

This was a nice clean park, the staff was very friendly and helpful. It has a nice pool nearby that was not open yet. The golf course and ball fields were nice. They have playground equipment in 2 different areas of the park and they are both nice. One of the sets of playground equipment is much newer than the other. The park has 28 sites, 24 of which have full hookups. The downside is that this park should not have that many sites. It is way to small for that many sites. For us the single most important part of a camping site is space and location. We did not have a very good location, and there certainly was not much space between camping sites. This would probably be one we should have went to during the week instead of on the weekend when they were full. I don't think we will be back as there is many more in the area for us to explore. - PackerFanRick

We have stopped here five or six times over the years. On our first stop we were negatively impressed. But these people have really made a nice park here. It is quiet, clean - they have obviously worked hard to clean and repair. It is greatly improved. We highly recommend it. - W Davidson

This park is a great value, even at full price . We stayed with Passport America. Long, level pull-through sites under large trees with full hookups and lots of grass . Satellite TV is easy set up. Good, solid WiFi, and Verizon cell/data is good. The owners were friendly and helpful, and are quick to provide assistance. Not a lot to do in the area, but perfect for a relaxing stay. - gafidler

This park is a great value, and even at full price rewards a visit with a quiet, relaxing stay. Long, level pull thru sites under large trees with lots of grass - the perfect place for a recliner, a good book, and a nap. The owners were friendly and helpful, and are quick to provide assistance. No cable TV and few open areas for a satellite, but ample OTA TV. Good, solid WiFi, and Verizon cell/data were excellent. Some train noise in the early evening, but quiet at night. Not a lot to do in the area, but perfect for a relaxing stay. We'll visit again. - Meanderman

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

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

Flandrau is a nice campground right in town, but quiet and wooded enough that you would never know. There are several nice trails, some that parallel the river, some that climb hills for great views. The sand-bottom chlorinated swimming pool and playground are favorites of our kids. My only cons on this campground is it's relatively small and only about half of the sites have electric, so they fill up quickly, sometimes months in advance. Also, the swimming pool is a favorite of locals, too, and gets pretty crowded at times. - minn camping family

Well maintained by state and good selection between electric, non-electric and primitive sites. A bit crowded on weekends, however more open on weekdays. Sites are a bit close together, however that is offset by how well maintained the park is. Restrooms and showers very nice. Campground is in town, so close to activities. - marker82

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
