Clean, but older state park. Short sites, many unlevel. Don't know about the 40ft access, maybe!!! Quiet, cool, shady. A ways from town, probably better suited for a weekend or longer stay rather than an overnight. For us it was close to relatives and "old" friends. Only major complaint is the dump station. Located on a less than 2 lane access road, at top of rise in a slow corner, and the hookups are on the wrong side of RV if using when leaving!! AND, no water at dump. - GLB

This park has some fishing piers and a swimming beach. They have horse camp sites also. The sites were smaller than most Minnesota State Park. The dump station was on the wrong side of the road when you dump on your way out. - PackerFanRick

This is a city campground comprised of both seasonal and overnight campsites. The seasonal campsites appear to have different amenities, making it difficult to answer questions about sewer, water, space, etc. The overnight campsites have electricity only. We have a 35 ft. trailer and were given a site that we could not have gotten into except for the fact that the campsite behind us was empty when we arrived, allowing us to pull through. Had this site been occupied, we would have been up a creek with no way to back into our site due to space constraints. The office closes at 5:00, so we would have been unable to request a different site at the time. We felt that $35 a night for such a cramped site with electricity only was a bit steep. We could have camped at a state park for far less money, gotten a larger site and had the same amenities. The bathrooms were clean and appeared to be new. Fishing off the dock in the marina was terrific. The playground is mediocre. I've seen better playgrounds and I've seen worse. There is a city park with tennis courts and a swim beach nearby, but these would be a long walk for most people, so plan on driving. There is also a nice paved bike path adjacent to the campground. - Jen5

This is a campground inside a shooting park. We stayed one night in a 50 amp pull thru RV site with water. No sewer but a dump station is on site. Check in is in the shooting park office but they have limited hours so there's a board outside one of the buildings with instructions and a drop box for payment. Cash or checks accepted. Sites are mostly grass and all pull thru. Most are 30 amp with a few 50 amps that are noted on the board. Check their website for any scheduled shooting events because the campsites will be full during those events. It was pretty empty during our stay. Some shooting in the late afternoon but it was quiet near dark. Sites were level and long. Very little shade. Good water pressure. Nice playground for kids. Plenty of space to walk the dogs. Next to interstate but really quiet. No lights at night so very dark. Nice park. We would stay here again. - Flippitti

Huge grass field with gravel roads and grass pull thru. Sites were huge! This was simply a place to stay for us. The price was awesome! We arrived, set up, walked the dogs, dropped the fee in the overnight drop box. We got a great night sleep and were on our way home. If you are looking for a one night stop on your way to somewhere else- this is a good place! The interstate is very close and can hear it outside, but we did not hear it inside. I would guess there are close to a hundred sites and we were one of ten. - Hoovr108

This is a GREAT stop without reservations. Only a few blocks off the Interstate but not much noise in the park. My dog loved this place as there is a huge area with grass and I rode my bike and we went up and down the rows. Since the rows were almost entirely empty that was no problem. We had very good 50amp and water hook up. Dump station at end of row. - RFCN2

This park is mostly a location for working in the local area. The manager was very nice and gave me a site but added that she wasn't sure if someone was there or not. If so, then pick an open site. Even though she didn't ask me to return and give her my location if I moved, I did anyway. They had some storms the night before and she wasn't sure if the Wi-Fi would work or not. Later in the day and this morning it seems to be working OK. The park is small with dirt/gravel sites that are small but it works for an overnight. It was quiet so I would stay here again when passing through. I selected tight turns for interior roads but that is mainly due to parking of the residents. If they were to park properly, then no big deal for the tight turns. - Jack&Wanda

Name Changed to The Lakes Area Motel & RV Park.
We stayed 1 night passing through the area.
The park is a mile or so drive from I-94 (Exit 100: 34th Ave) along a busy multiple lane road that narrows to a 2 lane road. The park was built in a little hollow so the roads & sites have slopes.
The sites are all back-ins. No P/T's! Several sites appear to be extended stay sites. The sites are different lengths. Site had enough room for opening slides. This park doesn't understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site and sewer doesn't flow up hill! Distance establishes privacy between the sites but the sites were narrow and close to each other. Only a few sites had an outside table. Some campers had a fire.
There were trees throughout the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment and your dish configuration. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels.
The park provided WiFi was good. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception.
No designated fenced pet area. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste around the park. There wasn't much space to walk dogs along the park's roads.
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.
No park brochure provided. The park is located across the street from the airport. There was aircraft activity noise late into the night.
We would not stay here again if traveling through the area. The other park in town offered the same type of hook ups with larger and level appearing sites as long as there isn't a shooting event. - bsb814

This is an unusually nice little RV park for being behind a motel. Most sites are level but a little crowded. This would be a great place for an overnight but some people stay here longer as a campground. We stayed here in a 40ft motorhome and would stay again if in the area. Call first they fill up quick in the evening. - TexL23

Peaceful atmosphere with numerous shade trees. Our gravel campsite overlooked a small pond. Courteous staff. Picnic tables. Fire rings. Full hook-up. However, the one inconvenience was Wi-Fi. You have to walk to the picnic tables in the lower campsites (closest to the office) to get a signal. Other than than it is a lovely campground. We'll definitely visit again. - 2_Alaskans

The camp sites are generously spaced and there is a lot of grassy area between the sites. We were in site A and it was very level. The lady in the office was very friendly and helpful. The only downside was that the Wi-Fi was too weak to hold the signal. We would definitely stay here again. - jconnally

Stayed here for one night on our way home from out west. The women who worked in the office were super friendly and helpful. You can tell that everyone takes pride in the place, and doing a good job. We were here on a Friday night, and it was full. I was afraid it might be noisy, as there were lots of very young kids. Thankfully it quieted right down once it got dark. It looks like alot of local families camp here, as there are plenty of activities the campground plans, as well as a small pool. It wasn't heated, so we didn't use it.
Our site was plenty long enough for our motor home and my car. We had an escort to our site, which was very nice. The campground is on a fairly busy road, so I imagine sites near the road wouldn't be very peaceful. Thankfully our site was at the very back, so it was nice and quiet.
If in the area, I would definitely return, and would recommend to others as well. - fly girl

This is a city campground. The location along the Chippewa River is very scenic. There are two hiking trails. One trail is paved and wanders past a butterfly garden. The other trail is a dirt trail and follows the river. There is a golf course and a city swimming pool on the other side of the river. Both are within walking distance. The campground has a nice playground. The city website advertises an old schoolhouse which is open to the public. I'm not sure what hours it's open. We were there on a summer weekend and it never opened. There is also a mini golf course in the campground. The mini golf course was recently renovated, but it is obvious that no one does any daily maintenance. There was a lot of debris (rocks, sand, leaves) on the "greens" which made it difficult to play. On the plus side, the golf is free. There are host campers onsite. They were very friendly and helpful. The campsites were level and many had mature shade trees. The roads are paved. There is a train track across the street. At first, we were somewhat concerned by this. Fortunately, the next crossing is a ways down the road, so the whistle was not too loud. The biggest negative was the bathroom. There is only one shower house and it's located near the entrance. The tent sites are in the back of the campground. Tent campers have a long run to the bathroom. The shower house is strange. Instead of the traditional men's and women's sides, there are four or five individual rooms. Some are designated for men and some are for women. Some of the rooms have showers and some do not. The bathrooms were very old and in need of updating, but they were clean. We would camp here again. - Jen5
