This is a clean RV/trailer court. It is run by an old but friendly owner. Many locals live in the park. It is a quiet area at the edge of town. - dewdew

Friendly owner on site. This is an older park, so sites are small and tight, our 43ft motorhome barely fit. But the people next to us with a smaller coach were just fine. Water was fine, we had 30A and no sewer or WiFi. But it was convenient for our purposes, and it is a good place for an overnight stay. If we ever get back in this area we'll stay here again. - jOHNONTHEROAD

We were treated very badly here by staff, ranger and campground patrons. A hostile, racist, redneck environment in this campground and in the local towns. Outsiders are not welcome here. Loud music past dark . Trash was left on my campsite from previous campers. When I complained it took many excuses and several days before they did anything about it. Very dissatisfied with my weeklong stay. This park needs to be inundated with diverse people to change the status quo. They say the ranger and "hosts" are always available but they are no where to be found! - whitewater

Park is deceptive in describing pull thru's. Our site 41, is actually two separate back in sites with a common drive. Not acceptable. If you reserve online check to be sure what you are getting. Lots are very close to each other. Site surface is gravel and dirt. There is a fire ring and picnic table. - Sands51

The hotel is still being built although the noise didn't bother us that much. Depending what street you come down to enter this marina, you may miss the check-in sign. It's across the street from the actual marina in an industrial building. Do not come here if you don't have a good working water regulator. The man checking us in warned us their psi is 125! Even with a regulator and the water only opened very slightly, our shower began dripping at one point. It is an excellent location for a wonderful walk along the water front and to some great restaurants across the bridge but it has its issues. - WinnebagoTraveler

Check-in: Efficient and curt. Told us we needed a pressure regulator as the water in the park was about 120 psi. Location: Terrific. Walking distance to downtown. Site: The RV park was essentially an asphalt parking lot where a few RV spaces had been added to the back of the lot. The site was not quite long enough to hold our 40' motorhome. The fact that it was a little longer than the site did not seem to bother anyone. Each site had a picnic table beside the coach area. The site itself needed to be cleaned as there was a layer of sand on everything that got tracked in the coach. I did not see anyone doing any kind of work in the RV park during the three days we were there. Hookups: 50 amp power worked well. Sewer worked well. Water had to have a pressure regulator. WIFI: Worked OK, but not great. Cable TV: None. However, the OTA reception with our antenna was great. Got HD picture quality on all network channels. Laundry: None Additional: There is a hotel being constructed adjacent to the RV park causing congestion and mud. - Phaeton Joe

The other reviews are accurate, this place is about location. However, during our stay, they were erecting a hotel *within about 100 feet* of this RV parking lot. There are muddy potholes as you pull in. The parking lot is slightly muddy as well and my brother slipped and fell when directing me in. You will wake up every morning around 7 am to the sounds of "beep, beep, beep, beep" in your ear. You will hear pounding and hammering all day. That is why I rated it pretty low. However, once the hotel is done RV'ers will have access to the laundry and shower facilities as well as a restaurant all located inside the hotel. Currently the RV area has a portable shower/toilet combo on wheels hooked up to some water. I saw some folks pull in at 11 pm in a truck and go in and use them, hmmmm. Bottom line, had I known the construction mess was so bad, we would have stayed elsewhere. However, when it's all complete, we will come back and stay here again. And I'll probably rate it higher. It's within walking distance to everything you want to see here. - rvlostyet

The park itself isn't that bad, and it's very close to downtown Duluth, which is nice. The inner roads of the grounds are easy to navigate, but we were packed in pretty tightly. There were a lot of campers on the property. We did have an issue with our water pressure at one point, and we aren't completely sure if it was due to too many people on one line, or if it was just a fluke for about 30 minutes or so. It was, as is the case with many things, almost immediately after we asked if there was a problem that our pressure was reasonable again. - joshnichols84

We stayed 3 nights in a pull through site #7, which was level, under some trees. The office staff was very friendly and nice! The pull through sites are closer to each other than the back in sites. Some of the back in sites were not level. It had rained before we arrived, and while we were camped at Indian Point Campground. There is not much gravel in the campsites, and no gravel or paved interior roads. As a result, it was extremely muddy in the sites and on the interior roads. Our truck was a muddy mess! The park sits next to the St. Louis River, and there is a walking path by the river. There is also a 24-mile biking paved path just outside of the park that we enjoyed with our bicycles. - Lindy White

Our site was lovely!!!! Sites are pretty close together and sporadically placed. Site was pretty level. Had great cell phone reception (Verizon). Very nice and quiet campground. The bathrooms and showers needed some work. They have a nice walking trail that leads to a dock, however, the dock was broken. Staff were all very friendly. I would stay here again, but will look for something different first. - jejmjj5

We called about availability and got their "after hours - (4:30)" recording stating there was lots of availabilities. Being new to this area and unfamiliar w/the park, we did not realize the closeness of things! Trying to get the big rig in with a tow was a bit tricky and we had no idea of where if any there were any 50 amp sites so we just used a 30 amp converter. The site was not level - our front tires way off ground so decided not to even put slides out or level. We would not try and get in there again with a big rig. The park would be great for smaller size campers though! - Foxes

While we thoroghly enjoyed the park itself we were horrified to discover ticks on us and our dog. From merely walking through the campground, on the road, we all found ticks when we returned to our trailer. The park is beautiful and serene but I can never stay there again because of the ticks. It was unbelievable. - TravellinTam

The best thing this place has going for it is its location and natural setting in the woods. Beyond that, it needs some work. We enjoyed having a quick drive to Duluth and other area attractions. We also enjoyed sitting at our site among the trees and usually only hearing wildlife, although occasionally you could hear the distant hum of I-35. The facilities themselves are in need of upgrades and care. First, the utilities for most sites are on the wrong side of the camper, forcing you to run your electric and water across the site and underneath the camper. Several sites are unlevel and in some cases too close to their neighbors (while others enjoyed a lot of separation.) Be sure to know the layout of your site before booking as some are so close together that they are really only meant for group camping with one camper backed in, one pulled in. Even more sites were so small that only a tent would fit, let alone your car- and I'm not referring to the walk-in sites either! It's almost as though the sites were put anywhere space could be found and without the needs of campers in mind. There are bright streetlights that are left on 24-7 (so much for being "green") and are annoying at night when you're trying to watch the stars. Some of the lights are burned out (lack of maintenance) which was fortunate for us since one was right at the front of our site. The front office was hardly ever open so if you need firewood or other basic supplies, expect to go in town. The dump station was difficult to use because the road was lower than the drain; I had to constantly raise my sewer hose up and down in order to empty the tanks. Our biggest disappointment was with the bathrooms. They were clearly NOT cleaned on a regular basis as we observed the same trash (whiskers, toothpaste, hair) in the sinks and showers for several days before they were cleaned. The shower curtains themselves were stained with black mold. There was no hand soap or any way to dry your hands. We watched the cleaning lady one day sweep out the restrooms (not mop) while her car was running, so that shows you how much attention was paid to maintaining the bathrooms. Overall we were disappointed. This place could be so much more if it was maintained better and some of the sites were reworked. It's really a shame because if they did make the improvements, it would be one of the nicest places around in a beautiful part of our country. Too bad. - Fdwt994

This park is off the beaten path and can be somewhat difficult to find. Our GPS was leading us to it until we discovered that a bridge was being worked on and would delay our travel over 2 hours. An alternate route required a much longer trip through road construction, but with little choice, given the time of day we chose the alternate route. As it turned out, this was fortuitous as we discovered that the bridge had insufficient clearance for our MH.
As an earlier review noted, only cash is accepted. Checks may be honored, however it would be best to clear this before arrival. The interior roads have some tight turns which may make it difficult for larger rigs to negotiate.
This is a mostly seasonal park with a few transient sites that is literally on the river's edge. The seasonal people were friendly and helpful and the units were well kept.
Most of the transient sites were 50 amp full hook up. Although there is no cable, ample OTA television channels were available and ATT cell service was good.
Our site was a back-in site that was just long enough for our 33 ft. MH. Our traveling companions were in the same size MH with a TOAD and were in a pull-through site that wasn't quite large enough to leave the TOAD connected. - Lakewood90

This is a seasonal campground with about 8 sites available for short term campers. 6 are pull-through and other 2 are back-in sites. The interior road and all of the sites were on packed dirt and gravel. All sites have full hookup with 20/30 amp service. The electrical voltage is OK, hovering around 120. All of the utilities were up front so you might need a long electrical cord to reach the utility box. The sites were relatively level but the trees need trimming. You might have to maneuver around the trees to get into your site. There was one washer ($1.25) and one dryer ($1.00). The one bathroom and shower was located within the laundry room. The campground did not have Wi-Fi or cable. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. The seasonal residents and campground host were extremely friendly. It was very quiet at night. The road from I-35 to the campground (Commonwealth Road) is extremely pot-holed. There are few amenities on Commonwealth Road. Follow the signs to Boy Scout Landing station, and then turn left from the boat launch area to the campground. We would return to this campground if we were in the area. Our rig is 32' long. - adsaxs

What this c/g lacks in amenities, it makes up for in hospitality. We were the only transients there and were made to feel like family. The site was large, but only had 30amps. There is a boat launch and a small laundry - one machine each. Coffee and baked goods every morning. Good fishing. - dotr

It was jammed full on a weekend in mid August. Portable toilets were often without toilet paper and need emptying due to so many campers. Seems overpriced for the situation. $43 for a pop up seems high for what you get. Not sure we would use it again. - Dave54

We spent 3 nights at Buffalo Valley while visiting the Duluth area. It is a sports complex with 3 baseball diamonds, volleyball courts, and horseshoe pits. There is a bar and restaurant onsite, which is good because the campground is about 10 miles from downtown Duluth. There are no nearby restaurants to grocery stores that we saw. They have 3 camping loops. The loop of about 20 sites behind the bar/restaurant with full hookup and was dominated by seasonal rentals. There is a loop on the hill that is wooded with water and electric hookups--both back in and pull through sites along with a few tent only sites. We stayed in this loop, and our site was relatively level. Down the hill is the Bison/Buffalo loop. Most of these sites are full sun. After a day and a half of rain, this area had some standing water when we pulled in. The only bathhouse is near the bar/restaurant. It is relatively new and immaculately clean. There are portajons sprinkled throughout the campground. There were no sewer hookups in two of the loops, but there is a mobile dump service on site. There is also a dump station. The manager goes out of his way to ensure you are happy. We stayed during the week, but it sounds like they are very busy on the weekends with ball tournaments and other events. Planning on holding a rally for our RV club here next year. Manager can arrange transportation into Duluth for those who do not tow a vehicle. Best choice of area campgrounds from my perspective for such an event. - RagTopDay

Buffalo Valley is about 10 miles from downtown Duluth, but has easy access to I-35, so was ideally located for day trips up the North Shore. BV's RV sites, utilities, roadways, dump station, grounds, restroom & shower building were all well maintained. Note - the showers cost 50 cents for 5 minutes, so bring plenty of quarters with you (also, the motion-detector lights don't come on until after you've entered into the building.) The staff was friendly and accommodating. We were originally assigned RV site #27, but it had rained heavily and this site had low areas with standing water. I called manager; he said we could move to any open site, so I chose #30 which was high and dry with lots of shade. It was a bit of a walk over to BV's restroom/shower building, but several kybos (toilets) are placed all around the CG, which I found were kept cleaner than most. There is a Buffalo campground and a Bison campground (also referred to as the Back- 40). Both have the same site numbers; so it can be confusing. A large number of construction workers were staying in Bison. Buffalo's sites are mostly shady where Bison has very little shade. Part of BV's complex also contains their Buffalo House Restaurant, three ball diamonds, a horseshoe area, basketball and volleyball courts, access to bike trails. - OTR-again

State parks require annual permit or day pass. Rustic camping with some "modern" pit toilets. Central water faucets around the park. No electric, no water at camp sites, no dump station or sewer available. This park is absolutely gorgeous with rapids, water falls, flowing over ancient granite rock ridges. Play in the water or fish in the river, hike the marked trails with points of interest. Mostly private campsites with trees and bush between sites. Love this park and connecting with nature here. It is a "mystic" place to be one with nature. Camped here many times. Always a rejuvinating experience.
Our travel trailer is 24 foot long and that is about the max length for most of the sites. There are a couple of sites that have a longer angled back in that could hold a bigger rig. But many sites are only big enough for your vehicle and a tent or pop up camper.
The day use area is busy on nice weekends because you can wade in the river and climb the water falls and rapids. Take your time to explore the trails and follow the river up and down both sides. Many hidden spots that are treasures of nature. - Macmasterson

I'd be hard pressed to ever give a state park a poor rating. For Jay Cooke, this is despite the fairly dreadful bath building (noted in other reviews). However, I wouldn't be surprised to see it replaced in the next year or two. We had received notification that the campground might be closed for updates this year, but later that was canceled. Hopefully it means it's coming soon as those bathrooms are beyond redemption. The park makes up for that, though. The campground has some sites that are scenic in and of themselves with many white pines. The park also offers a multitude of activities to keep you busy. The willard munger bike trail access is one of them (the spur trail to ride up the bike trail will have you panting, but it's a thrill to ride back down when you return! Just don't accidentally take out a hiker in your enthusiasm!). There are many hiking trails through the park. Don't just go to the swinging bridge - keep going!! The Carlton Trail is really fun one that keeps you close to the river for quite a ways. Although it's not recommended, there is an area where people like to get in the river closer to Carlton but still in the park. There are limited campsites for larger trailers or RVs. Especially ones with electric hookup. You have to really plan in advance to get one of those if you need the space. With that said, site #1 is both easy and on the larger side. We enjoyed that site a lot. There are some non-electric sites that will fit larger setups but beware that some loops offer tight turns and might not be navigable. There are signs about this and it may be noted when making reservations. The dump station hose to use for rinsing out the gray/black water leaked at the top and didn't work at all. Very frustrating in the moment. So, yes, the campground definitely needs work, but the location and activities still make this an awesome destination. (Some ticks and mosquitoes - deet effective) - MNJessieJ

We visited this park on Sunday through Thursday. It was completely full almost every night. Reservations are strongly recommended even for non-electric and hike-in sites. The park office is fairly new and staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
There were programs to attend at the River Inn interpretive center during the week. We enjoyed hiking along the river, at the Thomson Dam and Oldenburg Point overlook. There are wonderful biking paths too. The swinging bridge and massive rock formations are the main attraction at this park.
The bathrooms are in horrible condition due to age. The seats are loose and sliding around. Also, you can't get out of the stall without brushing up against the toilet because the door opening is too close. The bathrooms are cleaned often, but they still smelled. They have clearly seen better days. The showers were a little better, however hot water was scarce. We had very cool water until someone flushed and then we would get warm water.
Sites here seem to be better suited for pop-ups and tents. They are a bit short for those with big rigs. We camped in a 25 foot travel trailer and had to park our vehicle sideways. Phone service is spotty, but WiFi is available near the office. We were able to use WiFi in the parking lot and benches around the office. Bathrooms aside, this is a great park for camping and recreation. - brendajoro

We had a wonderful time at Jay Cooke State Park. The weather couldn't have been better and the bugs were at a minimum. This year the park is celebrating it's 100-year anniversary, so fun things are planned throughout the year. The swinging bridge, rock formation, woods and hiking are always great at this park. I emailed the park directly because there is an issue with opening the pictures of the sites. I ended up with a completely sunny site next to the bathroom (#48 ). Also, the bathrooms are very old and outdated. They were kept clean, however, there is not a stall for a disabled person to fit in a wheelchair, only railings. We were close to the new office, so we ended up going across the road to use the new facilities. Much to my surprise, the new Park manager emailed me back promptly to let me know the bathrooms are at the top of their list for repair or upgrade. She also said they will look into making site 48 a non-reservable site because it's so small and open. Actually, the first 3 sites used to get a lot of road noise, but since hwy. 23 is closed 1.5 miles down the road they are just wonderful. We stayed in a popup. - brendajoro
