We camped here on a Thursday in Aug. 2009. On the positive side this place is very quiet with lots of shade and the sites are spaced nicely apart. There are a lot of trails to hike, too. On the negative side there is only 2 spots to get water and most sites were not level. It is also quite a distance to the lake. We could not get Verizon cell service or satellite TV. - portecmp

Based on a prior review here, we spent a lovely Saturday afternoon, night, and Sunday morning at Nugget Lake. First, all of the sites are lovely but only 5 of them are level enough to suitable for a motorhome larger than 34 feet. The other sites are great for a pop-up, trailer, or 5th wheel. Some of the better motorhome-capable sites are 2, 25, and 51. Sites 45 & 47 are excellent also if you don't need electricity. The lake is nice but it is a long walk, with a steep hill, from the campground. The park does have quite a bit of nice hiking in various difficulty levels. On Friday & Saturday nights between Labor Day and Memorial Day there are movies or other activities at the amphitheater. Facilities near site #50 are excellent; some of the nicest I've seen. Those near #34 are typical vault toilets. Very limited cell phone service (less than 1 bar) on Sprint & ATT - none on TMobile. Sites are cut into the forest so you'll have good trees for shade. Satellite reception might be marginal though. All sites have picnic tables and fire pits - some are multi-level (like #19). Sites can be reserved starting Jan 1st of each year. We went on a Saturday in early October and had no problem getting a nice site without reservations. I understand they are usually full during the summer months and, after being there, I understand why! Our family voted Nugget Lake is a keeper; we will likely return for another short weekend again. - AndersonFamily

Great county park! The sites were very shaded, very private. Lots of trees and greenery. Playground area for kids. In a county park, so there are hiking trails for all levels, fishing, picnic areas. Was quiet all weekend long, even though the campground was full. We would stay again. - cobragt23

Frontenac is one of the smaller state parks, built in the late 1950s. Go for the trail system, the views of Lake Pepin, the fall foliage, or recreation opportunities in surrounding cities. Sites are smaller and nearly all back-in, marginally suitable for large rigs. Restrooms and showers, though working, are badly in need of updating. Like other reviewers we had problems with the dryness of the firewood, which was exorbitantly priced at $6 for a small bundle. All sites are now reservable. The electric sites fill up on weekends. - Jammer

We pulled in on a Friday late morning and got a lovely non-reservable site in the first loop. Site itself was large, with a fire pit and solid table. Slight slope down to the road which I could accommodate with a 3" board under each front wheel on the motorhome. Good electricity (121 volts) and solid Verizon 4G coverage, and about 15 digital TV stations detected. Campground is well patrolled and there was no trouble of any kind while we were there. Lots of kids on bikes having a great time racing around (we think of them as a floor show). Some fine hiking too along the ridge of the bluffs, finding several points of interest, finding geocaches left in the neighborhood, and attending a most interesting naturalist hike were among the available activities. Only down side - Ranger station sells wood for $6/bundle (which is expensive for the area) and, when I got it to the site, I found it was not totally dry - rather the fire struggled to stay alive and was hissing/sputtering until it really hot and the moisture was driven off. We hooked up the toad in the ranger station parking lot. They were nice about that and you have a lot more space than trying to do that in the campground. We had a great long weekend at Frontenac State Park. I'd need to recommend it to others. - AndersonFamily

Our price was $22 per night for a non-electric site plus the $5 per day admission fee. This park is definitely not big rig friendly. The site are rather small and very tight to get into with rocks and trees on both sides. The hiking/bike trails are very nice. There aren't enough electric sites to accommodate a crowd on weekends. - SteveCampsTx

Camping sites in small city park overlooking Lake Pepin/Mississippi River. Don't stay here if you don't like trains - there is a double track right next to park and lots of freight trains! One block from main highway. A few shops and restaurants in town. Electrical hookup only. On a Monday evening in October, we were 1 of 3 people in campground. Very pretty view of lake/river, sunset, boats. This campground is very busy in summer, first come first served. Gravel/Grass sites. Fire ring and picnic table. - Sparky6238

Since it is very early in the camping season it was difficult to reach anyone in the office. Played phone tag with the manager. When we arrived she came driving up in her golf cart to check us in. Very friendly and seemed genuinely pleased to meet us.
After paying our fee she directed us to two different areas, back-ins or pull-through and told us to pick any empty site. Found a nice pull-through which worked for us since we only were staying for one night. Fairly level, good water pressure and great 50 amp service.
The park is rather rustic looking but has a nice playground that looks fairly new and lovely landscaping. All units in the park are neat and tidy which you rarely see in parks that have long term renters.
We would stay here again if we are in the area. - Rick & Karen

This was one of the worst campsites we have had. It started with the check-in process, where the owner checked us in but really only talked to the guy in the lawn chair shooting the breeze and not me. It continued with having to pull out on the street and coming back in to jump the curb to get back into the campground and into our "pull-thru" site. The owner walked us out there, and she told us that our neighbors had been talked with and that would be running our utilities under their camper as our site did not have any. The site was not level, even though it had gravel that could be leveled out. The seasonal campers are rude and don't respect your space, while they parked their boat in and flooded our site with water while cleaning and blocked us in with their mini-van so we could not leave. This campground does not have a view of Lake Pepin from all parts, just one small corner of seasonals. Only come to this campground if you are coming with extra vehicles and boats, because there are no rules on how to park them and manage them on site so you will be happy. - JasonW

Clean and quiet. Older bathroom/showers, but clean. Nice view of Lake Pepin. In the city for easy bike access to restaurants. On highway 61, so it was a little noisy with traffic. $9 bundle of firewood. - dakotaken

Stayed here in early October when the leaves were changing and it was beautiful. The park itself is about 4 blocks off of the Mississippi River and is just a short walk or ride away. As previous people have noted it is mainly all seasonal campers with a few spots for overnighters. Most the sites are full hookup sites. When you register you need to stop by the hotel that is just down the hill from the campground entrance. There is a train that goes though pretty regularly and sounds its horn each time. Seems as though it did not go through at night when we were there. The train is down by the river so it is about 4 blocks away. Pepin is a nice town with a few things to see and do. There is a playground that is across from the campground and behind the hotel. - PackerFanRick

We camped here for a month so the rate shown is the monthly. First, this is a campground populated almost entirely by seasonal campers. So most sites have a tow behind or 5th wheel parked on it. There are only a handful of free sites. Weekdays there are virtually no seasonals around. They arrive on the weekend, mow their site grass, put in decks or sheds, and have a good time. Nice folks but they all locals, so full timers like us are the odd man out. Regardless, Pepin and the surrounding towns are great. Lots to do and great food. Check out the Harbor View Cafe. Super. Verizon 3G (and sometimes 4G) service good but spotty. Never was able to connect with the campground WiFi. - zulu

This is a nice park on the edge of town. The interior roads and sites are gravel, sites are large and pretty level with lots of grass between. The older section has large mature shade trees, the newer section has lots of trees, but not yet large enough for shade. The restrooms/showers are modern, spacious and fairly clean. The Wi-Fi signal was very weak, but was able to connect. It appears that the vast majority of the sites are seasonal and they do not have alot of overnight spots, so i would recommend calling ahead. Everyone was very friendly, quiet and close to good restaurants. We would stay here again. - skate

Quiet, wooded sites with electric only RV hookups. We really enjoyed our stay. Quiet wooded with plenty of space between sites. There was a path through the woods to the showers and restrooms or you could take a longer way around by the road loop. Showers were free but there was a button you had to press to initiate water flow. - SSBN

This is the 2nd time we have been here and we really enjoy it. Our site had 50 amp service, no water hookups, electric only. We had a long site and they all seem to very wooded and private. Some of the sites at the beginning seem to be very step to back into them. Just follow the brown signs of I-94 and it will take you right to the campground. The campground entrance is on Dugan Road. The fire ring was not the best, but that is minor. It was quiet, wooded, and private. We really enjoyed it. - PackerFanRick

This campground is very nice with private, well-spaced sites. My site was so long, it was hard to keep the popup straight backing in. My Verizon service was very spotty. As previous post said - GPS tries to take you to the recreation area, not the campground, so follow freeway signs if you come in on Hwy 94. I hiked to an overlook and the swimming beach seemed to be quite active across the lake. Due to poor packing on my part, I did go to the town grocery store. The store was small, but had a good selection and wasn't outrageous. The campground is an easy drive from the Twin Cities. It's sort of a hidden gem that Minnesotan's don't know about. The only downside is that there isn't an office, they don't sell wood and the showers are $.25. I got really speedy the second day. The nice hosts will recommend where to buy wood up the road, but you need cash. Plan ahead for these two inconveniences. - brendajoro

We found this on Good Sam, otherwise didn't know it even existed. Had a nice stay with quite a few things in the area to see. Lots fit our 45' motorhome and vehicle well. Area was mowed but appeared to have never been trimmed around edges, under trees & shrubs or around RV hook-up areas. You have to get used to the numerous trains passing by a few blocks over all day and night. Because of family in the area we will be back. - CJWagner

This is a very nice park with great views of the bluffs. The sites are well maintained with plenty of personal space (no fencing, just open) around. - if you have a motorcycle or bicycle, this is an ideal basecamp.
We're a traveling couple with home bases in MN and SoCal and have experienced many different parks.
A few items to note:
- Trash is picked up daily, just leave at the front of your site in the morning.
- The office is a cross highway 35 in the Nelson Creamery. While your there, you should expect to spend some time sitting on the porch for some cheese, meats, wine and beer!
- Our only negative comment is the train tracks are very close to the site. They run about every 45 mins to an hour starting around 9pm. They blow their horns when running through the town and there isn't much to baffle the noise between the park and the tracks.
- Not every site has a picnic table.
- Our site (#2) was mostly level.
We would definitely stay here again in spite of the trains. - Rosenriddle

We loved this area and we loved this park. It's like camping in a big meadow underneath the scenic bluffs. The bathhouse is clean and the laundry has new high capacity machines that don't mangle your clothes. There's not an office on site so you check in at Nelson's Creamery across the street. Manager lady was wonderful and responded quickly to any questions we had. I noticed that one reviewer noted there are no trash receptacles and that's because you just place your trash outside and they pick it up. The only downside is the noise of the frequent trains, but after a few days we didn't notice them anymore. It's a puzzle to me why this place isn't filled to capacity all the time. The rate we paid reflects the monthly rate.
Note: Don't follow your GPS. Coming from Wabasha, turn right at the second street after the railroad tracks. Coming from Pepin, turn left at Top Hat Bar. - Wind blows

Camping on the river with Red Wing, MN across the river. Marina is on the river so when it floods everyone has to move out. Kind of tight with some low branches, but we fit 40 plus feet in. Good food at bar near entrance. - what next

Rv park connected with casino.. A little different configuration with blacktop and gravel. Only friendly person I have found do on this entire reservation was the gentleman that checked us in. Bring lots of cash, the slots are tight. - Butcherboy13

This was our worst campground and camping experience. Very few shaded lots as per website photos. We were on a waterfront site, all rocks, poor site, unlevel, muddy and nasty with train across the river as well as a foundry with industrial noise and lights. There is a convenient restaurant/bar outside the gate, decent food at reasonable prices. However, unless you are truly part of the River Rat culture stay anywhere else! - Beth1

We stopped here for an overnight stay. I have a large RV and truck. When I called I asked for a pull through. When we arrived they had a pull through. The Host was very friendly and walked me to the site before I pull around to the site. It looked very tight but looked doable. I made it in but was very tight for the slide out. Close to trees on both sides. There are site of various size so call and ask if they can accommodate your rig. Not a large park and there are several seasonal sites. - Eagle-Eye

We stayed with a 40' RV pulling our 16' trailer and had plenty of room even enough to drop the trailer gate to unload the bike. Some sites are smaller but when you book online it describes each site: how long it is and if it is shaded, so when you book a site with shade online, you should expect trees and no tv reception. Check with the owners if you have special requests for a certain site, they were very helpful to us! - fifthwheelcamper

This rating is miss leading, as this camp, in my mind, is for tenters and smaller trailers and 5th wheels. Sites are right next to each other, to the point that we did not have room to put out our awning. Our site had no sewer hookup, and had overhanging pine trees that swung across our roof. We were there only because it was the only campground we could find with in a fifty mile radius to spend the 4th of July weekend.
The camp for smaller units and tent campers is adequate to nice, depending on weather conditions. It rained hard while were there dumping 2 inches of water around our coach. No chance to receive satellite TV, and WiFi was iffy. They do rent canoes and tubes to float the river that runs by the camp.
The owners are very nice and helpful in all respects. My opinion on this camp is that it is for much smaller units than a 38 foot RV. That said, if you have a smaller trailer or tent camp, this would be a nice place to stay, so long as the weather holds. - Darfantin

We just used this as an overnight stop, but it was easy to tell that they are really working on fixing up the grounds. Fresh gravel on all lanes and sites, grass is in good condition and well kept. All the picnic tables were pretty new and on concrete patios. The bathroom and shower were together in each of two private rooms, with one more half bath adjacent.
Staff was very friendly and helpful in getting me checked in and to my site. Site was very level. There is not a lot of space between sites, but the sections are broken up into small areas, so there wasn't quite so much of a feeling of being over-crowded. Good water pressure, EXCELLENT Wifi, well rounded selection on the cable TV service with 70+ channels. - Wally G

This is an excellent RV park. It's small and quiet with a spotlessly clean and new spacious bathhouse. Our pull thru site number 20 was long with plenty of space for our tow truck. It was packed gravel with a concrete patio, good picnic table and fire ring. It is easy access from the US61 but no highway noise. The owner and staff are lovely and gave us lots of local information for our stay. The park is close to the lovely small town of Wabasha. Wifi was excellent as were the many cables channels. - Harris England

Owners are very proud of their new bath and shower facilities - very well done. This is a small place with only a couple of permanent units. We ended up in the office basement with everyone in the park during a tornado warning. They made sure everyone in the park was accounted for. Owners had lots of local information handouts. - suerover
