“Great hiking, quiet campground”

Reviewed Aug 13, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a lovely state park with lots of hiking, and the campground was pretty nice. Lots of picnic areas in the park, too. A lot of the RV sites are hit-or-miss on quality – some have great privacy, others you can see people across the road or trails come up next to your site. If it's not busy and there's no chance of it filling up, I think it's worth checking out the campground before selecting a site. 30A electric worked fine. I drove around the non-electric loop, and there are some fantastic sites with great shade and good privacy there.

No highways anywhere nearby, so it's very quiet and very dark here.

The reservation system lists the maximum rig length for each spot - it varies by site.

There is no cell service at the campground on Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile. However, with an external window-mounted antenna on my hotspot, I was able to get one bar of AT&T LTE at about 1mbps down/0.08mbps up from the campground. Casual browsing and emails were fine on that, but uploads/sending photos was very slow or failed. I did notice Verizon LTE came in on some hikes, including while walking around the Forestville historic area (which is well worth a visit). And once you exit the park and go back up in elevation, service is fine.

“No Mystery here, the park is a nice Minnesota SP”

Reviewed May 11, 2015

Overall Rating

I didn't have reservations and was able to get a walk-in site (September 2014). Site 52 was a nice, big site and it probably helped that the campground wasn't full.

Some decent hiking trails close to the campground.

People come here to see the Mystery Cave but I missed it this trip.

NO Cell or Internet at campground
