Very nice city campground. Very quiet and a few seasonal campers. We got in here last minute on a weekend. The campground hosts were very nice and friendly. The bundles of wood for $5 are HUGE! We will stay here again when we get in the area. The sites are big, but not the most private. - PackerFanRick

We stayed here in August of 2009. This is a city-owned campground. It was a surprise to see a town of only around 1,300 people have a campground so clean, nice and having full hook-ups. The sites were large, paved and level, but a bit close together. Some were shaded, others open with lots of grass. We were in spot #12 right on the river which was nice to listen to. We got satellite TV and Verizon cell service. The park is within walking distance of town but there is not much to do. We would highly recommend this park. The only reason that I gave it a 9 is because of the closeness of the spaces. - portecmp

We stayed for just one night. Every site has full-hook ups, a picnic table and fire pits. Nice large sites. The sites along the river are quite scenic. Within walking distance to town. We would return. Great value and easy access. - tamiausland

Very nice state park. Lots of room between campsites. This park can accommodate large rigs but as mentioned you need to take care from low hanging branches. Staff is friendly. One of our favorite state parks. - sclark
Sep 2013 - $24.00
Large state park with 5 campground loops. Two loops have electric hook ups. Some campsites can accommodate large rigs, but care needs to be taken for low hanging tree branches. Restroom buildings were clean. Lots of hiking trails. Dump station and water fill have easy access. Lots of wildlife in the park. - sclark

What to say? The grounds are lovely; the facilities are great. We hated our stay.
This is now called Pathfinder Resort. It is set up for the permanent residents. We outsiders are treated like second class citizens. They are allowed to use ATV's and Golfcarts but outsiders aren't. And they race around with them at high speed day and night. There are loud parties.
They put us in a space we couldn't fit in; we went to the office to ask for help. She told us she had no idea the size of spaces or what was at each one. She didn't know and didn't care. The map they gave us was inaccurate and useless.
The entrance is not designed for RVs; there is no place for you. Cars can pull over to register; motorhomes with a tow will block everything. The residents then zip around you and give you nasty looks. It was dangerous. Visitors are treated like interloper - sfrantz

This is a very nice State Park located next to the St. Croix River. They are electric only sites. The park is very well maintained. We stayed there 2 nights. We did pop a breaker with the a/c running (one unit) and when checking the wattage, we had low wattage coming from the post. The gnats were very thick so we didn't get out too much, but both days we were there, they had activities going on. It is a very popular kayaking/canoeing destination and tour companies use the launch ramps. Plenty of shade. Nicely spaced sites. Walking trails. - jacknpeg

We really enjoyed this State Park. It has a lot of biking and hiking areas. The sites all had tall mature trees around them. Some of the sites were longer and more private than others. The camping area is quite a ways off of the main road (5 Miles). The sites were nice and level. - PackerFanRick

Among the largest parks in the state, St. Croix State Park offers recreational access to rivers and lakes. There is also an extensive network of biking and hiking trails, and an equestrian facility. Most campground guests take advantage of river-based recreation of one form or another, since the campground is remote and there are closer alternatives for other purposes. There is a concession on site that offers canoe and kayak rentals starting at about $40. There are a number of campsites that are hike-in or canoe-in only, inaccessible to RVs. The RV campground layout is similar to other state parks, only larger. There are 9 campground loops, all equipped with back-in sites. About half the sites are electric, more than are shown on official maps. To the extent I am able to determine, all of the electric sites are 30A. Though the loops are separated into three campgrounds: Riverview, Paint Rock Springs, and Old Logging Trail. They are adjacent and are similarly equipped. Wi-Fi is provided. Speeds are slow but usable. Like other Minnesota state parks, there is no water at individual sites, a policy the DNR has adopted to discourage grey water dumping. The sites themselves are grassy, of medium size, and generally have shade from tree cover. There is not much screening vegetation between sites. The sites are more closely spaced than at most other Minnesota state parks. Vehicle permits are required, $5 per day or $25 per year, for each vehicle. This being a large, heavily used facility, DNR staff are present in force during peak times, and a number of interpretive programs are offered, especially on weekends. Though we did not have any problems with overzealous enforcement, our sense overall was that compliance was expected with the many DNR policies given lip service at other parks. Bears have been an ongoing problem at this park. There have also been ongoing problems with other opportunistic wildlife, raccoons, etc. Finally, this park was part of a demonstration project in the 1940s that resulted in the construction of some unusually luxurious cabins and group facilities, which remain in place. - Jammer

Not too good, space was very tight, could use more gravel, satellite NG, even thou they said we could 'probably' get it. Seasonal next door threw garbage in bag out the door and left it there for two days before putting in dumpster. They actually stepped over the bags. Could not set the awning out even a few feet. - rose1234

The couple who runs it is very nice & helpful. The back of the property looks like permanent residents. Pull thru spots are easy to maneuver, they are all open, so neighbors can see in easily, very few trees around. Good place to rest your head. WiFi booster needed - Momma Bear 07

Nice campground with lots of space and a fire ring. Hosts were very nice and helpful. The lake is very close to CG. Also there is a golf course and supper club on the property. - Money2Burn
Aug 2015 - $1.00
First time stay. Camped under ROD. Back in site. 30 amp. Water and electric at site. Dump station near office easy to get to. Electric and water located between every other site at the front. So you would need a 25' + cord to hook up depending which site you were in. Indoor pool clean and well maintained. Very friendly tubing and kayaking company (Parduns) in Danbury (6 miles). Casino also in Danbury. ATV trails nearby. St. Croix state park about 14 miles. Judy at the front was very friendly and helpfull. Manager not so much. Wouldn't even make eye contact. - Rlachermeier

This was an overnight stay for us just an enroute stop. The state park near by could not accommodate an RV our size. Unfortunate. We pulled in to St Croix River Resort seeking a parking place our only real requirement was a spot at least somewhat level. They had a spot with water and 30 amp service for $43, a bit high we thought, they staff said they charge the same for all sites regardless of amenities. The site was off to one side segregated from the "member sites" ground was soft and was difficult to level up on. This campground is heavily used by weekend ATV enthusiasts and was a bit on the "party" side. Mosquitoes were in abundance even tho the park is some distance from the St. Croix river. We will most certainly not stay here again. - kltfaught

This place is now called St. Croix River Resort. The price reflects $0, we stayed here on ROD. Very spacious sites, each cul-de-sac has 6 sites. Ours had 50 amp power, good water pressure, and sewer. Satellite TV was a bit of a challenge, and we decided on less channels. Verizon service was OK, not great and non-existent at times. This park gets busy on the weekends, but during the week, it is very quiet and peaceful. The St. Croix River is nearby for floaters, lots of ATV trails, and plenty of lakes around. There is a nice grocery store only a few miles away in Danbury, WI...about 6 miles away (Hinkley is about 20 miles away). The pool and all facilities are well maintained. The customer service is absolutely outstanding. We had to do repairs on our RV and they went out of their way to help us. - simonsrf

Really enjoyed our stay here. The campground is very nice, excellent showers and restrooms, and the continuous casino shuttle is nice, although it is only a short distance to the casino - less than 1/2 mile, and there is a nice walking path. Casino restaurant is very good. The only problem is that when the park is quite full for special events (and almost every weekend), the WiFi slows down and is often times unavailable. Other than that little glitch, we enjoyed our stay, and will return. - Hiflyer

Price reflects mid-week rates. Prices are higher on weekends.
All interior streets, sites and patios are asphalt. During hot days, it would be suggested to use blocks under your jacks. Park is kept very clean. Shuttle buses to the casino run continuously. Wi-Fi was decent. Most trees are small enough not to interfere with satellite reception. The large bathhouse in middle of Park was very clean. - kurtk

Nice clean park. A lot of vehicles, golf carts, bikes, scooters and Shuttles running through the park. Cable TV? They shouldn't be able to advertise cable. Early morning you can get a lot of channels but by 10:30 everyday you lost them all except for 1/2 dozen that were very fuzzy. WiFi not much better. very slow and shutdown a lot. - flnomad

We had a beautiful site right on the yellow river.
Fantastic view, and enjoyable bird watching as well. Eagles follow the river!
All sites are back in. Shared pedestal for electric, so every other site would need a longer cord, etc.
Wifi is excellent. We would visit again. - Organic1

This campground is owned by the St. Croix Indian Tribe. We stayed overnight while enroute. The lady checking us in was friendly and helpful. Campers come to enjoy the ATV & hiking trail and canoe the river.
There was a free shuttle to the casino. We ate at the buffet. The price was reasonable and the food very good. We were impressed with the area and would like to return again. - CatheyE

This scenic little park on the Yellow River has good utilities, though the Wi-Fi is very weak. Sites are fairly level dirt/gravel and many are rather short. AT&T phone and data signals are functional in the area. There is a lot of shade but some sites are satellite TV friendly. We would stay here again. - never settled

We stayed last summer while our house was being worked on for a month. For our purpose it worked out, but if we were doing a normal RV trip would only stay a day or two. The surrounding area has a lot to offer and see. On highway 8 from Lindstrom to Taylor Falls is great. The campground is a field with no shade and the sites are close. The older part of the park needs some work. - Traveler II
Sep 2013 - $50.00
I was expecting more for the price. The sites are close together and have baby trees so not much shade in the newer section. We camped here with a group and they royally messed up one parties reservations so they were very far removed from the group and couldn't figure out how to fix it. It was very disappointing and sort of soured our weekend. The playground and pool are fairly far away and very old and rundown. I was told the bathrooms were decent but I didn't personally use them because we had a full hook up site. The old guy on the golf cart playing campground cop was rude and accused us of stealing a picnic table from another site, which he later found at someone else's site. They did do Halloween in Aug/Sept so the kids liked that - but it was across the campground by the seasonals so we had to drive over there with the little ones. - LoveShack
Jul 2010 - $43.00
This was a nice enough place. More than likely if you are staying here you don't intend to stay at the campground all day as there is so much to do in Taylors Falls. The sites were alright. There are many of them packed closely together like sardines. For campers there is not much shade in the pull-thru's. The pool is too small for this large of a campground. Plus the pool and campground are far away from all of the sites. The mini golf course is a joke. We planned on playing that while we stayed but decided it would be worth a couple bucks and go play at the nice place in town. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Taylors Falls planning to do stuff during the day. If you're a family planning on staying there, then you may be disappointed. - smores

Not big rig friendly. Road construction causes major confusion in signage from the east. We finally followed signs for the campground and within feet of the road closed sign turned the rig around. No signs said go to dead end and turn left. Sites regardless of length stated by phone or on website are big enough for 40 ft motorhomes. Site was so narrow with trees only 1 slide could go out due to tree trunks and limbs. I called and spoke with staff on 3 occasions that we were lost and they were very polite but really missed the opportunity to provide better directions. This is a lovely area but size of spaces, narrow roads inside campground, and extreme difficulty in finding the entrance made it an unpleasant visit. - Guinevere

This was an amazing, and fun experience. "Interstate" refers to the fact half of the park is on the Minnesota side of the St Croix river and half on the Wisconsin side. We camped on the Minnesota side. Here there are mostly electric sites (sites directly abutting the river are non-electric). Site 20 has a lovely view, but you are terribly close to Site 19. 21 has the best view but is tent-only and non-electric. Most of the sites were not level. Our site sloped a bit but I have blocks to raise front wheels and that helped. Bath house is very well maintained. There are a Ton of people here on weekends because of the marvelous hiking trails. During midweek, we had this whole park almost to ourselves. It was lovely. There are boat rides and canoe rentals nearby. Hike 1.25 mi North to the visitor center and tour the most amazing potholes! 10,000 years ago the St Croix River was one of the largest rivers in the world. At over 200' deep it carved out the river bed from igneous rock and, in doing so, created huge circular holes in the bedrock. You must see it to believe it! We drove over to the Wisconsin side of the park. They have a Northern and a Southern camping area neither of which exceeded what we had on the Minnesota side. Their entire South campground was non-electric (some lovely sites). The North campground was partial electric. Some of the best sites were right next to the bath house. Rate of $33 = $23 for camping + $5 electricity + $5 for park use permit. Good Verizon signal in the campground (and throughout the park) for both Internet data (4G) and cellular. Lots of hungry raccoons so keep your campsite clean of edibles! I'd come here again. Next time, allow more time for hiking the trail, take a boat ride on the river, and relax. - AndersonFamily

We stayed on the Wisconsin side, north campground, in spot #33. The site was fine, but a lot of traffic in front of the site as we were close to the bath house. Great hiking trails and very friendly staff. Wisconsin side offers trail to Taylors Falls, which is great for a stop at the ice cream shops. Another trail further north provided access to downtown St. Croix Falls and the Dairy Queen. As the weekend was warm, these trails were most appreciated. - Glory Bee
