Overall Rating

22 for no power seems a little extreme, but the park is awesome! I loved seeing the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi River. Such an insignificant start!! They have about a 17 mile bicycle path which goes right next to it. It does go on a road at one point but there was hardly any traffic. The ride was beautiful. All those tall Red ... more

“Excellent early spring experience”

Reviewed May 15, 2017

Overall Rating

We were too early for the flush toilets and showers which open about May 15. The sites are on several loops served by an asphalt drive. Most sites are angled to the loop road and come with a picn... more

“Too big of campground area for me”

Reviewed Oct 20, 2015

Overall Rating

I stayed at the Pine Ridge Campground of this park. It is a very big campground and I wasn't in love with it. Could be due to the rain.
