We stayed here over a weekend in July at a premium campsite. The site was very spacious yet kind of buggy. It was really grassy, not many trees and almost felt like we were just camping in a field. It was also very far from facilities. There are no sewers on any sites in the whole campground though which is somewhat inconvenient, however you can pay a fee of $10 to have someone come to your site and dump for you. If you don't, just be prepared to have to wait in line for about 30 mins to 1 hour to dump when you leave.

They do have a lot of amenities available, tubing (costs $ to rent a tube and take the shuttle), swimming pool (really small), skate park, music hall, etc.

If you do decide to tube I would like to mention that the exit out of the river is very difficult to get out of, it's at a slope and extremely slippery and muddy. Just have to beware if you are elderly or pregnant, you will have trouble getting out. Even my teenage daughter almost slipped and fell.

Even at the more spacious sites I felt that it was still a little noisy, we had some younger people next to us on each side that were up running around drunk after quiet hour, but the staff showed up not long after and reminded them to keep it down which was nice. I should also mention I used the restroom one time and noticed it definitely was not maintained and the toilets were dirty and clogged. The showers looked okay though.

I overall feel like the place was a little overpriced for what you get, especially since there isn't sewer available on your site. $55 for the site itself which includes 2 people, but then you have to add another $2-$4 for each additional person on top of that. I don't think we plan to come back to this campground anytime soon. We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I had stayed here over 35 years ago, it's much larger now but still very nice. The service is wonderful and the campground is beautiful. The sites along the river are gorgeous. The only complaint I would have is the firepits are dug into the ground and flood when there is rain. We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is situated in scenic valley along the Zumbro River. This is a campground, not an RV park and that is an important distinction. We stayed in a waterfront premium site with 50 amp electric and water. The sites are extremely large and all grass. There are no RV pads but it allows you to position your unit any way you wish. Our site required leveling blocks, and many of the sites will, depending on how you wish to position your rig. My only complaint with our site is there were several dead trees that posed a hazard. They appeared to have been dead for sometime and there is really no excuse why they were not taken down. There was plenty of activities to keep the kids happy. They enjoyed the pool and on site skate park and climbing wall (additional fee required). There is a new office building with rest rooms and showers. We didn't use the showers, but the bathrooms were modern and clean. This was an enjoyable camping experience and we will definitely come back.

We recently went on our week long family vacation to this campground. We were originally scheduled to stay at Site#81, but when we got there we didn't realize it was way down in the valley. So we asked the check in person (who was extremely nice) if there were any open sites up on the hill (where the pool area was). He circled a few on the map and after driving around and looking at the open sites, choose site#414 - a nice corner spot. We liked this campground and plan on coming back here next year again -- we would highly recommend it. The only down fall I guess would have to be the Internet. Before we left for vacation I emailed the campground and asked if they had Internet and I got a reply back "yes". When we got settled and got on our computers we realized we had to pay for our internet usage (a little over $17 for the week) not a bad price, but it would have been nice to know before we arrived We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

This was the most disgusting camping experience we have ever had. The bathrooms were disgusting and after the first day we refused to even use them. Our campsite basically flooded and became a muddy disaster. We will never camp here again! We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We had a lot of fun at this campground. Sites are big but some are fairly unlevel. Grounds are clean and many activities are available. Pool is small but is clean and heated. Tubing on the river was also enjoyable. Store is fairly well stocked and staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, a good experience and we will be back.

This was a nice campground. Some sites were a little far from the restrooms and showers. Was a little difficult to find our site due to the multiple roads. We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for 3 days over Father's Day weekend However, the campground had it's plus and minuses. They had alot of activities for the kids. Swiming pool was small but adequate. They had bags and washer tournaments. The minature golf course was a joke, but they had a nice driving range. The kids enjoyed ceramics with Laura and made some nice Father's day gifts. They also had Arts and Crafts for kids. We rented a tube and floated down the Zumbro River (in a pouring rain). Saw a lot of wild life including 2 tiny fawns. Our site was not near the river and we could not find a public access or beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They had afternoon movies for the kids, karaoke on Friday night and live music on Saturday night. There was always something to do and keep you entertained. Very quiet wooded sites with lots of trees. The Bad. The bathrooms were horrible. Toilets stopped up, showers a mess. My wife refused to use them. I waited until I got home to shower. She used the RV even we were nearly full on the gray tank. Fire rings were small but did what we needed them to do. The sites were all grass and when we stayed it had rained. We had a hard time leveling the RV. I had blocks but they sank in the ground. We fell off the jacks once but finally got it stable. All in all we liked 90% of it. We may go back but not sure. We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground. lots of things to do..nice swimming pool but smaller in size, tubing on the river was a blast. It does have some nice hills getting in and out of the campground but not really a problem at all. Most sites are large in size. Kids age 8 and 4 had a great time. No sites with sewer but its only $5 for the honey cart to do all the work for you. Best $5 I have spent in a long time. Will go back!! We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The hilly, gravel entrance road to the campground was a bit of a nuisance. The campground is very spread out. We also were at the bottom of the park near the river which was a very long walk (although we usually drove) to the main buildings and pool area. Pool is small but clean. Only went in one porta-potty but it was amazingly spotless and nice smelling. We had tons of room on our site with a scenic view. Loved the tubing. However they won't let you walk to their river entrance without paying a fee which we didn't want to do at $10 for 5 people. We ended up renting a couple of tubes, putting in right at our site and getting out in Zumbro Falls where we had parked our truck. The beach/river access areas for the campground are not easily found. Also it would be easy to miss the end point for the campground's tubing stop area. The campground owner was always available and very friendly. I don't know if we'll go back or not. There are many RV parks a lot better and many worse. We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Absolutely beautiful campground. Many things to do..nice swimming pool, tubing for the river, nice driving range. Mini Golf could use some improvement. There are many very nice, large, shady sites here, however because we didn't book very far in advance so we ended up with a site which was full sun and at the far end of the campground. It was quite a hike up a hill to get to the office and other amenities. This campground had more of a "party" atmosphere than we enjoy. Otherwise we would have rated it higher.

The campground was really pretty along the river. Our site was spacious and shady. They had tubing and swimming. The staff was really nice and friendly. The downside is you have to travel several miles up and down a hilly dirt road that washes out quickly when it rains. We got out right as the rain started but a few hours later heard that people were trapped as the roads were washed out. We will definitely return but check the weather first.

Great facilities at the site, no sewer hookups, but they have a reasonably priced service to empty your tanks ($5 according to the guide). Deluxe sites are huge, standard sites have plenty of elbow room. Lots of hills coming into the campground, and between the game room / riverside sites. Couldn't tube due to high water on the river, but looked like a lot of fun. We will go here again!! We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice family friendly campground. There is tubing down the Zumbro river for $8 per person each day. The only draw back, there are no full hookups and only one shower room (3 stalls each men/women) for this large campground. I guess sewers are a problem being so close to the river. The sites are adequate with shade, picnic table, and fire ring. We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Staff is friendly and the store and game room are adequate size for the campground size. Tubing and other activities help keep kids busy and a variety of different site locations, shade options and site sizes make this a nice campground. Bathrooms can be difficult to access as the main bathroom is at the bottom of the bluff and can be a hike if you are on the top of the bluff. Many times a vehicle was the best way to go to get back and forth to the bathrooms and peak times, (morning and night), can be very crowded in the restrooms. Surprisingly the campground was almost completely mosquito free! We camped at Bluff Valley Campground in a Tent Trailer.
