Nice campground. Quiet. Bathroom there was vandalized so is locked up from 10:00pm to 7:00 am. Unsure if police roam through or not. Bathroom was clean but very dark inside especially shower area. Wood River edges campground so it is pretty. Site had asphalt pad surrounded by grass. Level and easy to back into. We came here to see Crex Meadows- beautiful! Their visitor center is run by volunteers so is not open on weekends unless there is a special event. - Wi Gal

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

Beautifully clean and within walking distance to downtown. If you are visiting Crex Meadows Wildlife Area, this is a great place to stay. Fall in Grantsburg is awesome with thousands of sandhill cranes, migrating hawks and ducks, friendly townspeople and good restaurants. Close to the twin cities too: only 75 minutes to Minneapolis. - KZspree

The park overall is beautiful. It has a nice mixture of woods and prairie, and of course lots of walking trails near and along the St. Croix river. The campground, like most state park campgrounds, is not so friendly to modern day RVs. We have a 29' travel trailer. The campground is densely wooded, so we had a hard time backing into our site with trees all along the road. Once in our site we found we had to make a decision; do we want the awning out on a rainy weekend, or do we want the kitchenette slide-out out? There was a tree just a couple of feet from the front side of the camper so we wouldn't have been able to open the awning. We pulled ahead as far as we could and were able to get the awning out, but then the power box was directly behind our slide-out. The sites are very secluded from your neighbors. Very few sites have any grass. Most are dirt and are quite small, so if you want to play any yard games you'll have to drive to the picnic area. - Juniper94

Nice campground with friendly staff. Easy access for big rigs. Park has 2 pull-through sites in the non-electric loop. 50 amp sites are available. Dump station has very easy access. Lots of hiking trails. Lots of wildlife viewing. Clean restrooms / showers. - sclark

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

As stated in previous reviews, this is a membership park. The resort is very large with most of it being developed into private leased / owned lots. These have park models placed on the lots and are used by the owners on week ends and holidays. The guest sites are on grass with electric and water. The guests must use the dump station. The facilities are in great shape with the pool being the main attraction and is crowded on week ends. The previous reviewer is correct about the use of golf carts, ATV, and motorcycles. The resort has a driving class for 12+ year old children and then they are allowed to drive in the resort. As a result week ends is like living in the middle of a drag strip. Water pressure and electric were strong. I found the guest sites were on the most part easy to maneuver into. They have two shower and toilet facilities which are kept clean and serviced. As mentioned there are flies and other flying pests to contend within the morning and evening. The front office attendant appeared to be lost when I asked normal RVing questions. It appears that they cater mainly to the owners and potential buyers. - A hitch and hop

For the most part I concur with the previous reviewer. Very clean well maintained grounds. However, the participation in RPI seems to be an after-thought to raise some extra money. The park emphasis is plainly on seasonal site owners. Although the "guest" sites are roomy pull-throughs, they are heavily wooded making satellite TV reception impossible. An over-the-air scan produced no watchable channels. The description of an RV unfriendly entrance is accurate. You must also put down a $10 deposit for a gate key fob as you need it to both exit and enter the park after normal business hours (e.g., there is no key pad on the gate). No WIFI was available. The mosquitoes were present day and night (kind of expected in Minnesota). Apart from the negatives, the sites have good 50 amp electric service and the price is right for an overnight stay. - rjohnso3a

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

We loved our stay here. The park is huge. Our site was just big enough for our MH, but had lots of trees and some shade. We felt pretty private and away from other campers. The staff are wonderful. Lots of walking paths. We will definitely be back, hopefully sooner that later. - jejmjj5

Excellent fall weather and a great time to camp. Campgrounds resemble a parking lot with sites packed so tight there is little or no privacy. However the crowds are minimal in late fall and the bugs are gone. The water is turned off except at main lodge where there are heated restrooms but no showers. So glad to have this park open all year long. Trails are great for long hikes and the rivers and bluffs offer great views. Lots to explore. Don't miss the fire tower and Kettle river high banks. - loopy1954

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

Lots of rules but no enforcement. This place fills up on the weekends with party goers. Smokey campfires are encouraged, burning trash is acceptable as are rugs, parking on the grass, barking dogs, fireworks and staying outside late. None of these are "allowed" but nobody is there to enforce them. Pretty quiet on the weekdays. Friendly staff. Some of the lots got very wet with no drainage during storms. Cater to seasonal campers. Rates were very high for what was provided. We have no plans to go back. - GOTTOYS

No boat or canoe rentals. Hard to fish on docks because of seasonal pontoon boats take up all space. Sites are too close together but are full hook up. No planned events for families with kids except bingo while we were there. - Rjpruden

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

As previously noted, this is a membership resort and most of the activity is on weekends (Friday & Sat) as campers come in for a 2 day, 2 night free sales promotion. The sites near the entrance are a mixture of cabins and RV sites used by the resident workers. Most of the rest of the resort is on grass and used by tent campers. Power was good, did not fluctuate. Not all sites have sewer. You will need an extra hose and the water hook ups are shared and are located at the front of the site.
Sunday afternoon most of the park is vacated by the campers. The social activities are primarily to entertain the children while the parents attend a sales presentation.
Besides river activities and ATV riding, there is not much happening at the Resort. No planned activities during the two weeks we were there except for those to entertain kids. It is very quiet. Best time to come is Monday through Thursday when the Resort is almost empty.
Bring your bug spray as the Deer Flies are very bad if you venture out of the sites and the smoke from your fire. - A hitch and hop

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

If you arrive before 2PM and do not wish to pay the $10 early check-in fee, you can leave, or sit in the parking lot until 2pm. We decided to pay the $10, and it was reflected on the receipt. What burned me, and I didn't find out until I got my bank statement, they charged me twice for the early check-in. When I called them to contest the charge, they referred me to my receipt.
The campsite we had was difficult to back into as there was a campsite marker light on one side and a trash can on the other. The hook-ups were centered on the site for easy access, included water, electric, sewer and cable tv. Leveling wasn't a problem - JBu

A convenient place to stay when passing through the area, with trips to the casino and restaurant/bars an added bonus. Good access roads, but the sites are mainly back-ins ... not sure how they are assigned, ours provided no additional space for our towed car, others were longer. Over the years, we have seen the trees encroach across part of the roadway, needs some caution when entering or exiting to avoid damaging the vehicle. Good satellite and internet access. Great value! - NCrog

The sites are blacktop with a concrete pad, picnic table and fire ring. There is a large pool. This RV park is one of the nicest, well maintained park I have been to. There are garbage cans through out the parks which are emptied daily. The grass and trees are well maintIned. There is adequate space between sites. All sites are full hook up back in sites. The park is gated. There is a shuttle bus that comes around every 20 minutes to take you to the casino. We enjoyed the park so much we stayed a week. The rates are alittle higher on Friday and Saturday. There are alot of people from Minnesota that come here on the weekend. We noticed many people are there for the summer but all areas maintained. No junk around. - Bosshoss

Being honest, I'm not sure about the high marks this campground gets. Roads and sites are gravel and dirt causing concern for a heavy RV after some rain. The roads are a bit tight so I cannot say this facility is Big Rig friendly; Be Careful!. Wifi is very weak at the time of our visit, so weak that I used my Hot Spot. So what can I say? For $22 per night it's a bargain in this part of the country but for those with smaller RV's. No credit cards! Come with cash or check only. Compared to other Casino CG's this one ranks low. Our stay was early in the season. Perhaps the facility will get better as the season gets more fully underway. - Beech35p

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

When we got here on a Thursday, the park was about 1/4 full. But by Friday night the place was packed with the weekend crowd and by Sunday afternoon was again 1/4 full. And they all had lots of kids. This park is really geared towards little kids with games and activities hosted by the park. The pool was way too crowded to go into. The sites are the side-by-side type with a shared utilities in between. The WIFI was touch and go. Bathrooms are clean. I did not like that they charge an extra $5 for a dog even though they do not have a dog park, but they do have several locations of clean up bags. - akeller156

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

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

Nice State Park Campground. We arrived about 6:30 PM on a Tuesday and the staff was about to close the office for the day. They were very helpful with maps and directions to the site we had reserved online. The site was not level but we were able to level with our blocks. The road (loop) was tight in a couple places for our truck and 32' trailer, but was manageable. The park was only about 10 to 15% occupied and was fairly quite. It is close to the highway and traffic noise is present but it did quite down after dark. - N8MD

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
