We have stayed here many times over the years. This park has steadily improved from poor to very good over these years. The owners have worked hard to change it from dirt and gravel to good shade and grass sites. A quiet and level place to stay. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

The pull-through sites are nicer than most of the back-ins, but take what you can get. Fairmont, MN is nearby for shopping and recreation.

Passing through on our way to Yellowstone we found this gem RV Park late on a Saturday night. The owners were friendly and the property is extremely well maintained and offers generous gravelled sites with grassy areas, trees and picnic tables. Our stay was quiet and we would definitely recommend this Park. Auf Wiedersehen! We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground except for one thing on our particular site...low tree branches that punctured a hole in our roof! 50 amp, sewer, great water pressure, shade and enough over the air tv channels. Good interior gravel roads and fairly quiet. We heard one train in the afternoon and none at night. Easy on and off I-90 and decent free wifi. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is immaculate. The owner is friendly and is always working on something around the park. The site was easy in-easy out. The owner directed us to our site and made sure we knew where everything was. The wifi was good. There were some trees but satellite was accessible. The utilities were convenient. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our stay here. The camp hostess was very friendly and helpful....even guided us to our site. The sites are long and level, and the utilities worked very well. Depending on your site, you may or may not get satellite, due to the trees. Good Verizon signal. It is very convenient to I-90, but there is no road noise to speak of. Highly recommend.

What a pleasant surprise! Clean, well kept & quiet RV park. We were on our way home & ran into some nasty weather so we were a "late arrival". Called and even though park office was closed the camp hostess met us, checked us in & aided us to our site. Within minutes, we were checked in, parked & hooked up and cooking dinner. Our hostess was even kind enough to open a can of beans as we forget to pack a can opener. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is a great value, and even at full price rewards a visit with a quiet, relaxing stay. Long, level pull thru sites under large trees with lots of grass - the perfect place for a recliner, a good book, and a nap. The owners were friendly and helpful, and are quick to provide assistance. No cable TV and few open areas for a satellite, but ample OTA TV. Good, solid WiFi, and Verizon cell/data were excellent. Some train noise in the early evening, but quiet at night. Not a lot to do in the area, but perfect for a relaxing stay. We'll visit again. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

Watch for the turn into the park - it comes before the park and there is only one way in/out.

This park is a great value, even at full price . We stayed with Passport America. Long, level pull-through sites under large trees with full hookups and lots of grass . Satellite TV is easy set up. Good, solid WiFi, and Verizon cell/data is good. The owners were friendly and helpful, and are quick to provide assistance. Not a lot to do in the area, but perfect for a relaxing stay.

We have stopped here five or six times over the years. On our first stop we were negatively impressed. But these people have really made a nice park here. It is quiet, clean - they have obviously worked hard to clean and repair. It is greatly improved. We highly recommend it. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

On 6-week RV trip and used this as a for-the-night stop. Had everything one would want for a stop-over, but seemed to lack amenities we would want as a place to spend several days. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park for one night & it was perfectly adequate for that. You can't beat the price with the Passport America discount. The site was level. The park was in good condition even with all the rain the area had. We were able to get Satellite & over the air signal. The sewer hook up was too far back to bother with for one night. We would stay here again if we were passing through the area. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

Great little park for an overnight stay. Rate reflects Passport America. Most of the sites are seasonal but there are a few full hook up level pull throughs for transients. Easy access on and off the freeway. Shaded sites which were welcome in the the 95 degree weather. Clean facilities. Will stay here again.

Very nice & well Icampground. We had a pull thru site so we didn't have to unhook, it was gravel and level. Several fulltimers & local workers but not a problem. The owners were very helpful, easy on/off of I-90. Unfortunately the wifi was out when we were there. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

We found this to be an adequate bare-bones park for an overnight stay that was very reasonably priced. We had a very long and level pull-through. Friendly staff. Large open field for our dog. Free Wi-Fi was strong and fast enough. Easy access from I-90. Recommended. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport America. What a little gem this is if you like small quiet parks. We stopped here just for an overnighter. There isn’t much else around so we didn’t even unhitch. The manager was very welcoming and took us personally to our site which was a long and wide, level pull-through with a shade tree that didn’t interfere with our slides, grass and a nice picnic table and fire ring. We had our choice of 30 or 50 amp and the water pressure was perfect. The Wi-Fi worked just fine. It was so quiet and peaceful there with big trees and lots of grass. There was even an area in the back where I was able to let my dog run off leash a bit. I would definitely return. This park is a favorite! We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
