“Pretty park marred by traffic and train noise”

Reviewed Jun 08, 2016

Overall Rating

As noted previously, the campground has some pretty spots along the Mississippi but the first time a Frieghtliner train sounds like it is coming through your campsite, it's not great. My visit started off with a picnic table covered with sand - mot sure who checked site last.

Power is strong and there is room for some big rigs. There are two showers way down by the entrance but no washrooms. It's an ok spot for a day or two - especially if you get the pass discount.

Google directions had it on the other side of road.

“BINGO! A winner COE c/g near Grand Rapids, MN on the Mississippi River below Pokegama Dam”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2015

Overall Rating

This COE Recreational Area is off Minnesota's main E/W highway, Route #2 (only negative) a few miles west of Grand Rapids. A beautiful day park just below the dam on the River and connected to the RV park with a beautiful setting. Well spaced sites are staggered so there's lots of privacy and all have River views. 30 and 50 amp electric with dump station and water available.

This place is a winner and it has room for big rigs. From the looks of tags on the site posts, most people here use it as a destination or decide to stay longer once here.

The highway is noisey, but most of us are use to that and accept it if there is a view and first class campsites. You get that here.
