Beautiful park, very convenient to Twin Cities. Quiet with a great bike trail running through it. The only negative was the mosquitoes, so will come back in the spring or fall next time. We camped at Sakatah Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We visited Sakatah State Park on out motorhome. Our site was back in and turned out to be very tight but we were able to make it in. We enjoyed the visit to this generally quiet campground. This park has an incredible biking trail. We hiked a trail along the lake and found it a bit overgrown and therefore narrow. It's very family friendly and the park rangers provided outstanding customer service. We camped at Sakatah Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite parks. It is rather tight in spots, but if you can get in it is nice, quiet, rustic and private. The site I had was a larger site. It had enough room to get in and out and the overall site was very spacious. The park host stopped by to talk and was very nice and friendly. I would certainly try and get back here again. They have a nice biking trail and many walking and hiking trails and it is just off the lake. We camped at Sakatah Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I drove through all the loops to see what the campground is like but did not stay overnight because all sites were full. We did spend the day at a picnic site. Sakatah Lake state park has two main attractions: the state trail that passes through the park, and the upper and lower Sakatah lakes which adjoin the park. The campground area has full tree cover and mature understory vegetation screening the sites from each other. Sites are short and narrow with boulders and trees limiting turning space. Many if not most spaces cannot accommodate slide outs. The campground appears to have been laid out primarily with tent camping in mind. Most sites have a flat, level area for a tent adjacent to a parking area that is sloped. The site-by-site parking pad lengths on the park reservations web page appear to be accurate if not optimistic and include all usable space between the road and major obstructions like trees. Rigs exceeding these lengths just won't fit at all. Due to the heavy vegetation and standing water there are bugs. Despite its drawbacks, the campground is usually full on weekends during the camping season. We camped at Sakatah Lake State Park in a Truck Camper.

We loved this park for its private, small camp sites perfect for tenters and small RVs. It is right on the Sakatah Bicycle Trail it also has some bicycling camping areas. It is not really suitable for big rigs as the turnarounds are tight and sites are kind of small. The Rangers and park assistants are very helpful and friendly. The lake after June will probably get very green from the farm fertilizer cooking up the algae. Boaters should try Elysian down State Route 60. It is a big lake and cleaner. We camped at Sakatah Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.

There are 4 loops, total of 62 sites. 48 non-electric and 14 electric. All sites are wooded and are shady. Some sites tend to be sloped side-to-side. People with big RV's or slides may have trouble as most sites are narrow with boulders lining the spur. Sites are primarily dirt, no grass. During summer months there are tons of mosquitos as there is a lot of areas within the park that has standing water. This park tends to be very busy as it is close to the Minneapolis/St. Paul cities. You also do hear traffic morning, noon and night as it is next to a highway. We camped at Sakatah Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We drove through the campground, but did not stay. The campsites are very tight with many of the driveways sloping front/back and side/side. It would be very hard to level a Class A. Most sites could not accommodate a full sized motorhome. The sites were carved out of a forest - many sites had so many trees opening slides could be problematic. However, for tent camping or popup camping, these issues would not present problems. Tent/popups might not mind the narrow roads with tall trees and boulders lining the road edge. We had a picnic down by the water - which was very nice (lots of mosquitos of course). Nice fishing dock for the kids (but the water was pretty opaque). Campground does have a dump station. We camped at Sakatah Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
