Wow. Where do I start. This is a resort with cabins and campsites. They claim 5 transient sites but there are more. There are at least 30 sites with most of them occupied by seasonals. Each site either a concrete patio or a wood deck. Some have both. The decks come right up to your bottom step. Need to get used to that last step that disappears with the deck. Restrooms and showers are spacious and clean. It does not matter if you spend $1,000.00 a week for a cabin or $250.00 for a campsite, you are treated as an equal. Campsite delivery of firewood, ice etc. makes you feel like you belong. Great (small) beach for the kids with a water slide and trampoline. Very pet friendly. Dogs are allowed everywhere, even on all rental boats. This is a resort for fishing. After all, it is on Leech Lake. If you get a brochure, it it outdated. There is no snack shop or sandwich shop. They offer frozen pizza and ice cream bars. The only negative I can say is the sewer hook-ups are a little awkward on some sites. Mine was way too high out of the ground. I went to the office to mention it and a camp employee nearly beat me back to my site to cut the PVC down so my hose pitched correctly. There were other sites where the hook-up was at the ground and still above the RV's outlet. I would highly recommend Acorn Hill to anyone. We will be back. - Wydglide

This is a resort that caters mostly to people who want to fish. As it is on Leech lake. However, it is a great place for families that are not going to take the boat out also. They say they only have 5 RV sites, but we saw people coming and going all 3 days we were here, into other sites. So that was rather confusing. Now what a awesome place to be. Our kids (7 and 8) are still raving about it. Nice (but on the small side) beach with a big water slide going into the lake and a water trampoline, free kayaks and ducks that will come and eat bread out of your hand. Now when it gets too hot on the beach, they have a awesome indoor pool and hot tub, with attached arcade and exercise room. Only negative about this place is the biting flies, they didn't bother us too bad but they loved feasting on our dog. We had to put her in the camper a lot. And they staff is pretty laid back and get to stuff when they get to it. Our garbage can from the previous people wasn't picked up till a day after we arrived. So we woke up and had to pick up shredded garbage from the raccoons the night before. But all the positives totally outweigh the couple negatives about Acorn Hill. We will go back for sure. - bunny102

This is a very picturesque place to camp or take your RV. Huge red and white pines along with big oak trees are everywhere. It is a huge complex with 95% of the units being seasonal. Had nice marina/dock system. Roads were paved, common areas were clean, and it certainly had curb appeal. There was no beach to swim, and the pool was average (was closed two of the four days we were there). This wouldn't be a place I'd bring kids.
They gouged you for almost anything they could except for bags of ice ($2 for 10 pound bag). Firewood was pricey and they short-changed us on the amount of wood. Luckily we snuck in some lumber which helped get our fires started. They charged $5 extra for each person if your group was more than two, so it was over $50 a night. We rented a pontoon ($100 for 4 hours). Nice 24 ft pontoon on the big lake. OK lodge-nothing fancy. Clean bathrooms and hot showers were a plus!
The customer service was good on the surface but a pain in the "you know what" when it was all over. Staff was courteous for the most part-nicest employee was the young man delivering firewood each night! The business side was maddening. I had to give them my CC number the day before to "reserve" the site. My dad was then going to pay for all 3 nights once we got there. When it was time to check out, the staff inside said the 1st night had to be charged to me while the last two nights charged to my dad-they didn't know how to take a charge off my CC. No big deal I guess. My dad and I made a "deal" and we then parted ways. 1 hour later as I'm driving home, the same lady calls me and says I "tried to leave with out paying my due balance." She said I hadn't paid for the first night. I told her I'd given her my credit card number when I reserved the site-AND-that she also told my dad the first night had already been charged. So I had to regive my CC #. I check my emailed receipt and see I was charged an extra $32 for a tent - a tent we NEVER SET UP! UGH! Won't be coming back! - vumpire

What a pretty spot on Leech Lake! We could see the lake from our site and it was an easy walk down to the docks. We were lucky to have cool weather and no bugs, so we could sit out on the dock for an hour in the evening and watch the boaters and Sea-Doos. We never even used any bug spray! It was in the high 70's and lovely.
We arrived in time for the 4th of July golf cart parade, which was a hoot to watch! This park has a number of permanent RV's placed on foundations and it is clear that many people spend most of their summers here. Very family friendly atmosphere. It is near a golf course, so lots of golf carts. Nice lodge to hang out in overlooking the lake. I think they also served food. It was a little noisy at night, mostly due to 4th celebrations and some fire works--one drunk guy singing. But I think that was unusual. Sites are close together and campground is very full during the 4th. But it was comfortable and had a very friendly feel to it. - Rhonda A

Passport America price was $14.50. Very nicely landscaped lot next to hotel/restaurant, but also right next to the highway/main street. Utilities very good. Sites are level and all are approximately 50 foot pull-through. No office on site. Transactions done via phone according to the owner who just happened to be on site this particular day. - Full-Time Roamers

We stayed here two weekday nights. All sites are FHU with good cable TV (60+ channels) and Wi-Fi. The previous reviews are all pretty much on the nose concerning this park: gravel lot with grass and a cement patio between the sites; flowers and lamppost at each site. I found the lamppost to be a negative as it was too bright at night and forced me to use added shading for the bedroom windows. As noted, you can use the bathroom and shower in the motel pool area. While here is no laundry in the park or motel, there is a laundromat in town. In addition to being able to walk to all the shops, stores, and restaurants in town there is a very nice lakeside city park (beach, tennis and basketball courts, boat launching area, picnic areas, etc.) at the other end of town. This park is about 1/2 a mile from the RV park. - Jerry S

This is a great little park right at the edge of downtown. You can walk to downtown in several minutes. We ended up staying here since the park we were supposed to stay for a week wanted us to stay in the worst site they had. So glad we saw this park on the way. It is next door to AmericInn and you can use their swimming pool, hot tub, and showers if you want. There are no restrooms in the RV park, but we use ours in the trailer anyway. This place is perfect if you don't need all the so called amenities that the so called 'resorts' in the area have which they charge a ridiculous fee for. This park is exactly what we look for when we are traveling. Water pressure is great and voltage is good. We would definitely stay here again. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is they have gravel streets and sites, but they are level. They have a small concrete patio, shrubs, and flowers at each site. They also have a small street light at each site. - zrxh14

Lovely campground on Leech Lake. This is a Chippewa National Forest Campground. Sites are roomy and spacious. It is very shady. It is close to Walker, MN and the bicycle trails. The bathrooms were not cleaned regularly or well. The more important problem is very low voltage. We spoke with the Forest Service people and it is old wiring and at the "end of the line". Weekends were the worst. We would NOT stay here again for that reason. - ouachita princess

There are lots of trees in this campground, so not much sun gets through in the daytime and you won’t get reception on your satellite TV. The sites on the outside of the campground loops are large, but the inner loop sites are a bit cramped. Also, if there is a lot of rain, several of the sites on the outside loop become flooded. The campground is on Leech Lake and there are two mooring harbors for boats, so if you are staying several days, there is no need to take your boat out of the water every night. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount. - Bobbi1948

Great Forest Service Park on a point in Leech Lake. Very shady sites which help cut down on wind coming across the lake. Some sites have beach access and some are on water front. Small campground with a boat launch and has two small harbors where you can tie up your boat. The campground roads are paved and the perfect size for kids to ride bikes and enjoy themselves. The sites were well spaced and most of them were very private. - wildcat63

We really enjoyed our 4-night stay here. They have some pull-throughs and a LOT of space in between sites. We didn't use the restrooms, showers or laundry but the grounds are very well maintained. Our site was level with gravel and our Verizon signal was good. We checked their Wifi signal and it was the best we've ever seen at a campground. As we were getting ready to leave we discovered one of our coach's tires was low and they had a heavy-duty compressor which they let us use. The staff was really friendly and helpful. - Sheena123

Nice well kept Park. We like this park and have stayed here before. We like it because it is located on the Heartland Bike Trail providing a nice 4 mile morning ride to Walker for coffee. Pool was closed after Labor Day weekend. Price was $39.00/night which is their fall rate. Extra $5.00 for our dog. - repeterson

This park purportedly accepts Good Sam and Passport America. Their website indicates you can only use Passport for 2 nights but the Passport website says Sun-Thurs and does not mention a limit. When we checked in, I indicated that we had Good Sam and Passport America. We stayed 2 weekend and 2 week nights. The woman brushed aside the Passport America and said it would be better to use Good Sam as it would apply to all nights. I took for granted that she was doing the right thing. As it turns out it would have been to our benefit to use the Passport, and I suspect she knew that. My bad for not saying something at the time but I tend to trust people. IMHO a bad business model. The interior roads are packed dirt with a bit of gravel. Most of the sites here are seasonal with about 19 sites for overnight campers. The seasonal sites are all very well kept and are quite spacious. The overnight sites are not that wide but are very long with half packed dirt/little gravel and half a hard plastic form filled with small pebbles. They appear to have some washout issues when it rains. You will track dirt around in your vehicles! The sites lean back and toward the driver's side. Even though the sites are long it's a bit of an effort to get level with larger RVs. The utilities worked okay although the breaker tripped when we ran all three A/Cs at the same time. There is quite a lot of rust in the water that was apparent even with filters. There is some grass and small trees between the sites but they are pretty close and there is no privacy. Each site has a picnic table and firepit. There is a nice pool and various games like volleyball and shuffleboard. Directv satellite worked fine. Verizon had 4g with 3 bars. We were able to get on their WII FI with our extender; however, it would go down for no apparent reason several times a day for an hour or more. There is some noise from 371 but it's very quiet at night. We camped here in a motorhome and probably would not return. - Free

It is a beautiful campground, but poorly managed. We made reservations 1 week in advance for two sites, when we arrived one was taken and the manager wasn't available and didn't answer phone or return call. Ended up paying at city hall. The Wood Tick Theater is about 10 blocks away and provides a great variety show. - jhilley

This is a lovely lakeside campground located just west of the town of Akeley MN with clearly marked signage off highway 34. Nearly all are waterfront sites with 30 amp power, water, table, and fire ring. Dump station at entrance. Clean & quiet, no road noise or trains. People are fishing in the spring fed Lake Crow Wing 11. Friendly staff. - meanderingman

Park sits adjacent to the motel with a couple well-kept permanent mobiles in between. In a field at the edge of a grove of pine and spruce trees. We are parked pretty close kind of in a chain around the trees but no one is in the other campers. One is parked beside us with our doors facing each other. Full hook ups however.... Not much info on their website so I called ahead and the owner told us it is 30 amp. We got here, started setting up and realized it's only a regular house plugin. To her credit she did call around to about 10 places for us to find an adapter. Got one about 10 miles away and it's been working fine. The moral of that story is make sure you have an adapter with you!
There's a lumber yard across the highway with some noise from trucks and beeping during the day. They close around 5 pm.
Bullwinkle's Bar & Grill within walking distance. Less than a mile into town with several shops and restaurants. Beautiful area and a cute town that looks like it has a lot going on.
No extra amenities but it's all we need. Just a place to park with hookups for a fair price. Got here on Thursday and plan to stay the weekend before moving on. We would stay here again. - Meesha

Very friendly staff, allowed us to leave our popup while we visited friends nearby the day of our checkout and we picked it up on the way home. Showers went from pleasant to scorching hot, then to freezing cold. There was a very neat lagoon that we camped right by, but the beach was not much. It was quiet, not a lot of campers, which was good as there was only one men and one women's restroom, and two shower stalls. There was a very clean port-a-biff available. Got to hear loons throughout the day and night. - shaker_77

Very nice resort. Friendly staff and nice store. Enjoyed the on site restaurant. Full marina with rentals. Sites are pretty large and easy pull-thus. Not very private though and lots of kids. Play areas for the kids. Nicely paved roads. - amlarson

Stoney Point has a very high number of seasonal sites, most of which appear to have been occupied for many years. Also has a number of rental cabins for those without an RV/Park Model trailer. All sites were in excellent condition, and maintained to a very high level. Resort features a double canal/harbor with boat docking/rental available.
Huge beach with swim area filled with giant inflatables for kids.
This was after Labor Day, so resort was at low eb. With the huge number of sites, it may be a different story on busy summer weekends.
Staff were all pleasant and accommodating, although disorganized and some untrained. They were more used to dealing with customers that were already familiar, as there was little information shared at check-in. We had to figure out on our own by walking around where the bathrooms were, laundry, that there was a pretty decent restaurant on property, etc. Store is primarily a heavily stocked gift shop Only beverages available. Only a mile or two from a full grocery, so this is not a big issue.
We rented a premium site located on the main small canal. Gravel, with an old concrete "patio" pad. Sites are old, so have gone out of level over the years. Site was back-in, and took a fair bit of backing and filling to get into.
No cable TV - only local limited over the air. Free Wi-Fi limited to the main building. $25 per week fee for slow campground Wi-Fi.
Many extra charges - pet fee, docking fee, boat launch fee, extra tent fee, etc.
Overall, good to very good facility, but potentially crowded, that seems overpriced for the RV'er/Camper. OK for a night or two. For longer stays, better to choose a real cabin resort for only a bit more, and leave the RV at home, or use the very nearby Forest Service campgrounds, if you can get by with limited/no hookups. - Flapper

A lot of seasonal and full time units. Nice beach. Lots of kids, fires and bugs. Beautiful sunsets. We stayed here 13 years ago and boy has this place changed. We were put in the middle of the resort and there was a lot of traffic and again, lots of kids. - Butcherboy13
