Well maintained park with concrete patio, picnic table and fire ring. Pull through site had level gravel and nice grass between sites. Only issue I had was the utilities are in the very back which wasn't a problem for my water and electric but too far for my 15' waste water hose (I didn't have my second one with me) as my drain port is in the middle of my 40' fifth wheel. We camped at Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. Owner have updated the park extensively. Lots of gravel on roads and sites, concrete patio and picnic table. Nice new bathrooms and laundry room. Only one washer and dryer (looks new), $5.00 to wash and dry, but they are a good size. It looks like they are getting ready to put In a new building probably a clubhouse. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice campground. Located on the edge of town and walking distance to downtown. Also, a paved bike path runs right next to the park entrance. The interior roads and sites are gravel, but level and in good condition. Lots of space between the sites, lots of grass and many with shade. Very well groomed and in great condition. A new section is now open and this has a new bathroom and shower facility. WiFi signal was strong. Very quiet and safe. We did hear the train that is about 1 mile away, but didn't bother us (in fact i kind of like the sound of a train in the night). We would stay here again. We camped at Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park) in a Motorhome.

This campground is undergoing a lot of improvements, including a campground bath house that is brand new and very nice. It was unbelievably quiet, resulting in a great night's sleep. We drove through a number of other campgrounds in the area; none compare to Big River Resort. It is a great launching point for many attractions, including Lark Toys, Pearl Button Antiques, and all the beauty that Wabasha has to offer. The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful, giving us maps and coupons good for many of the local businesses. We will definitely return. We camped at Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely landscaped hotel parking lot. The sites are paved, level and long back-in sites. When we went there the city was tearing up the roads. There was no real road in or out. We drove down the unpaved road to enter the RV park. When we left, we had to exit via a paved bike path, not more than a wide sidewalk really and drive over the corner of a private homeowner's lawn. Not fun in a 35' RV. A bigger RV with toad came through as well, so it's doable, but not fun. The facilities are very clean. Nice laundry. Good Wi-Fi. Lots of TV stations. Walking distance to the quaint town of Wabasha. We enjoyed the farmer's market. I thought the owner should have been more clear about the condition of the roads when we called before arriving. We are ambivalent about returning. If the roadwork was finished maybe. If not, no way. We camped at Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park) in a Motorhome.

This is a very clean small RV park along with a hotel. Big sites with grass and a nice picnic table. Hostess is very friendly. They do recycle glass and aluminum. It was very quiet. Unfortunately, when we stayed virtually every road in town was under construction. If you call the hostess, they will give you directions around it. This park was close to Pepin, Wi. the birthplace of Laura Ingalls Wilder. There is an Eagle Sanctuary in Wabasha that is well worth the trip. We also visited a unique toy store and stone carver.

We had a great time here. The staff were great and the park is small but clean and neat, with all the amenities. Wi-Fi was great and cable worked fine. It was a great place to visit area attractions. We saw the Laura Ingalls Museum in Pepin, LARK Toys in Kellogg. The National Eagle Center in town was great and we even took a day and drove up to Redwing. Great little town! Lake Pepin is beautiful! Loved the place! We camped at Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park) in a Motorhome.

We loved this park! Easy access from the highway, paved drive and hard packed gravel pads. Some sites may require a little jockeying to back in. The grounds are nicely landscaped and neat as a pin, likewise for the bath and laundry. A great paved biking, walk/hiking trail just across the road. The owner informed me that he is planning to add 15 new pull-thru sites in the near future. Wabasha and the Lake Pepin area is great place to visit. Drive the loop around Lake Pepin to explore some of the old river towns along the Mississippi. Many great shops, restaurants’ and the National Eagle Center in Wabasha.

We stayed here on a Friday in mid-September in a FHU, back-in site with 70+ channel cable TV and free WI-FI that worked well for us. The are only 14 RV sites and maybe 20 motel rooms. Most of the sites are wide, level, gravel back-ins and all have cable TV and WI-FI. A few sites have trees which may block roof satellites. Although there are a some pull-through sites, two of them appear (they are nice trailers on cement blocks) to be occupied by long term residents. Not all the back-in sites are long enough to hold a large RV and some would be very difficult to back into for a large motorhome or a 5th wheel. There is a 2 machine laundry. The dryer did not work well - just barely dry enough after two $1.25 drying cycles. The bathroom noted in a previous review is nice but just one single, unisex bathroom. You enter an ante-room with a bench and there is another door to the bathroom with the toilet, sink, and shower. This could be a problem if there are any popups or tenters in the park. There are no recreational (pool, playground, etc.) amenities, so there is nothing for kids. Nice enough park but a bit expensive for what is offered. We camped at Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park) in a Motorhome.

The campground is adjacent to the Wabasha Motel. The roads are blacktopped and the pads are crushed limestone. Most sites have a concrete patio and picnic table. The campgrounds are well maintained. The medium sized trees don’t cause any problems. Any size rig can be accommodated. This is a great place to stay, but it’s too expensive.

This is a very nice RV park on the south edge of town, along with a motel. Paved entrance road and parking lot. The interior RV roads and sites are gravel, level, lots of space between. Very well maintained, lots of trees, landscaping and lots of grass area between the sites. Very friendly place, great restaurants in town, paved bike trail next to the park. Wi-Fi works great. The restroom/showers are large, modern and super clean, they are in fact new this year. We would definitely stay here again.
