9 Parks near Wahkon, Minnesota
Jul 2008 - $10.00
This was a nice relaxing park (RPI) and we enjoyed our stay. We were allowed to pick a site, so we walked around and selected a nice treed site that was a back-in but very wide streets and wide lots made for easy backing. Good 50 amp power and good, not great, water pressure. Several channels into park from lake but many reeds in water. Good pool area and even had Saturday night entertainment that was free and enjoyable. Nice to see so many people there with kids and everyone having fun. Park has boat and trailer storage in center of park which detracts somewhat from it being a 5 Star resort. Many park models and seasonal sites. Several "older" trailers and open storage on lots detracted from 5 star rating also. I needed RV repair and called the service that the office recommended, and said worked weekends also, but they never called back. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would stay again if in the area... - retditto

This is one of the 2 AOR parks in Minnesota. It's a huge private membership park with permanent sites/park models, but they do have 12 sites for AOR. We were offered a site "in the wooded area" or one of their permanent sites that happened to be vacant. We took that one for it's "clear view of the southern sky". It was paved, and the satellite reception was fine. Their map shows 2 AOR sites on the lake, but we weren't offered those. The park was nearly deserted, as it was end-of-season. Cute towns nearby of Wahkon and Isle with touristy shops open on weekends. Good grocery store in Isle. Did not use restrooms or showers, pool was closed of course. They do shut the water off for the winter when it gets colder, but we lucked out. - barbilou

This is a beautiful campground with large sites. There are plenty of trees, for both shade and privacy. There are some good hiking trails and a public boat launch onto the Rum River. As with most Minnesota state parks, the bathrooms were clean, the rangers were friendly and extremely knowledge and the park was very well cared for. This park can be a destination on its own, or makes a great base camp for activities on Mille Lacs lake. - stpauligirl123

Have stayed at Father Hennepin Lakeview CG many times over the last 10 years, and have noticed a marked decrease in rules enforcement the last few years, with this year being the worst. Only supposed to have one vehicle per campsite, almost everyone had more than one, plus a boat/trailer. Boats only supposed to be parked in a certain lot, but instead they took up all of the overflow parking in the cg the entire time. Most drivers go through the campground at a very high rate of speed: both campers going around the loops, and boaters going to the in-camp boat launch (there are other launches in the park). There was dog waste all over. There was garbage all over. Dogs are not supposed to be on the beach and yet there were many there every time we visited it. We like this cg very much, but are sad to see it slipping down into a low-class place. I did talk to the ranger in the office a bit, not sure what good it did, but hopefully the park management will make an effort to get this park back to where it used to be. It might take a few years before we want to go back. - minn camping family

Great park with two different campgrounds in it. We chose Maple Grove Campground with no electrical hook-ups. This campground was well spaced out and tons of trees. The kids enjoyed biking around the trails and biking to the bathrooms. The "hidden" paths were their favorite. Used the beach and fishing pier. Too windy for catching fish, but still fun. Did the Hiking Club, geocaching in the park, and saw the albino deer. Very pet friendly. Camped with three other families, very quiet park. Would visit again. - agnesattic

This is a C2C club membership resort and we actually stayed free. The campground is located right on the Soo Line South Trail which makes it easy for getting right on the trail! It appears the campground has only been around a couple seasons. Showers and bathrooms were clean. Good water pressure and hot water never ran out, a huge plus when you come in dirty from trail riding all day! Has a small game area in lobby, where you can also buy snacks. I would say the only thing this place is lacking is shade and a pool. - A hitch and hop

We have stayed with South Isle Family Campground for the last 5-6 years and have never had a bad experience. There are activities for the kids, hiking trails, Geocaching galore very close and a friendly atmosphere. The bathrooms are very well maintained (important when you tent)! They have an outdoor pool and well manicured grounds. The staff are always friendly and helpful. - 3lilbugs

If you have kids, they will love it here. Train rides, warm pool and nice owners. This is a campground that recycles everything, which is great. Will go back for sure. - bunny102

Very nice laidback capmground. Mostly for seasonals. Nice grassy sites that saved us because it rained quite a bit. Small playground that the kids lost interest in fast. Very nice owners and would recommend this place for a quick get away for a relaxing weekend. We will go back. - bunny102

Campground has changed owners and is now Woodsong Campground. This is primarily a seasonal campground, but they do have a few nightly sites. The owners were incredibly nice. There is a pool, playground and rec hall with games such as ping pong for the kids. Beautiful lodge that serves food (snacks and such). - dansophem

Nice campground with room for big rigs. The park now has a dump station. Hosts and other staff are friendly. Remember to bring bug repellent. Lots of mosquitos. Clean showers and restrooms. - sclark

Lovely wooded Minnesota park! We enjoyed seeing several deer including twin fawn. Good sleep is available here with no traffic or train noise. The bathrooms were very new and clean but unheated so we didn't brave the showers. We'd definitely return to Kathio State Park! - pocabe

One of the larger State Parks in MN. Friendly park staff. Lots of room between sites. More room between non electric sites. Clean shower house. Road is well maintained. No problem for big rigs. Lots of wildlife. Only thing missing is a dump station. - jack

Thought I'd add a recent review.
As others said, very well run, clean, etc . I highly recommend it. A great bargain because of the amenities (full hookups, etc) with Passport America.
We asked for and got a site with shade that is also pull through.
Free wifi, but Verizon /AT&T both come in well.
There's a heated pool/hot tub/small snack bar. - RoadVenture

This RV park is actually in Malmo about 18 miles south of Aitkin. We can't say enough about the owners of this campground. We were there during a storm and they were amazingly efficient at taking care of all the storm problems. The grounds were well taken care of, the permanent sites were very nice, the RV sites were large. I highly recommend this RV park. We stayed there a week and would go back in a heart beat. - mkfore

Really loved this campground. VERY clean and pretty. Great place for young children. Two pools, two playgrounds and a Dirt bike track. Lots of seasonals, but you would not guess because all the campers look really new. Very friendly owners also. Big sites and pretty level. Will definitely be back. - bunny102

We requested a site facing the lake with a nightly rate of $46.00 for water and electric only versus $42.00. In addition, there are other extra daily costs of $5.00 for use of any of the following items: dump station, boat launch, a dock space. We launched our boat once, but did not use a dock space, but were charged for it.
We felt the $46.00 nightly rate, without full hook-up, should include use of the dump station, as well as access to the boat launch, and temporary tie up somewhere without charge, since Turtle Lake is part of their campground, and advertised as such. We felt this was excessive, and had not encountered it before at any other campgrounds across the states.
Also, it said pets welcome, but the cost was $3.00 per day/per pet - again, we felt this was excessive; we had two small dogs (approx. 20 lbs. each).
Otherwise, the campground was very nice, staff very accommodating, grounds were kept nice, and sites were nicely spaced and laid out. Mosquitoes were horrible and mean. - Travelor

Nice little campground, some sites seem small and close together. There is a small store but it is close too the end of the season so the stock was low. The showers are clean but need some minor repairs. Everyone one was friendly and the owners seem to have things under control. It is family and pet friendly, plenty for the kids to do. We will stay here again. - B HANSEN
