$30 per night was for a full hookup site in the upper campground. In addition, there is daily parking permit of $5 or you can purchase an annual MN state parking pass for $25, which is good for 12 consecutive months from the date of purchase. Many recreational opportunities are available in the surrounding areas including biking/hiking/cross country skiing trails. Campground is within manageable driving distances for shopping and other activities. Spacing between sites is generous and most sites are level or need only modest leveling. Sites are all in full sun in the open prairie in the upper campground. We received three bars of 4G on our AT&T phone. We camped at Lac qui Parle State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice peaceful state park. Nice lakes, trails, and other things to do. We stayed in the Lower Campground; it only has electric hookups. The signage to find the campground's the office was not marked well at all. We camped at Lac qui Parle State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Best understood as two separate facilities, the "lower campground" is part of Lac Qui Parle State Park proper while the "upper campground" is several miles away by car. The "lower campground" is typical of Minnesota state parks with tree cover, a swimming beach, group camps, a boat launch, canoe rentals, and other amenities. The sites are of moderate size, most have electrical hookups, and there is a shared water hydrant. The lower campground also includes an equestrian facility. Signage states that it is for day use only, and it was not in use during our stay. The "upper campground" was constructed in the last few years on a previously unforested area high on the valley rim above the lake. Most of these sites have full hookups including sewer and water, as well as 50A electrical service. The sites are unusually widely spaced and are deep, and are ideal for rigs of any size. However, the sites lack tree cover. There's no shade and no protection from the wind. The lake is the main attraction here with the trail system being an afterthought. Most trails run parallel to the access roads. We camped at Lac qui Parle State Park in a Travel Trailer.
