Overall Rating

This is a lovely rustic campground with fantastic privacy between most sites. This campground is probably most popular with anglers and hunters, as it has a boat launch right on the Rainy River (which borders Canada), but it does have a few trails as well. All of the trails are easily accomplished in a couple hours, but you won't find any amazing views. I'd recommend walking down to the river and doing the loop around the rock outcrop. You can also climb on top of the rocks for some better views.

The state park's website advises no fifth wheels or large RVs beyond the picnic area, and there is a sign advising against heavy trailers. I had no problem in my SUV and 20' 5,000-pound trailer with a WD hitch. There is one turn in particular that is a little steep as it curves, but if you go slow and hug the side, you'll be fine, I think. But larger trailers or class A RVs: absolutely not, go somewhere else. Backing up can be difficult in a few sites, but there were only a few people here, so I was easily able to pick a spot with an easy back-in. Most of the sites have grass elevated tent pads.

No electric except for two sites (not sure which). Great AT&T and Verizon LTE coverage. Very clean. Trash bins weirdly at every single site. No reservations accepted: you pay with an envelope (cash, check, or card number accepted). There are loud trains all night long, but I slept through most of them.
