Less than one hour drive from the Twin Cities, a cute little park that's perfect for an overnight getaway. Decent dirt trails through the woods, but not lengthy. A few miles perhaps. A wonderful paved bike trail that runs along the lake, but it doesn't loop in the park, it's just a section of a much longer trail that cut's through the park. Nice sites that are well spaced out with trees and vegetation for privacy plus a really friendly park staff. Nearby town has all the essentials if you forget anything. More trails or longer trips would be nice, but it's excellent for what it is.

I stayed here one night in April 2017 in a small travel trailer. Great park, good trails, totally worth a visit.

The campground has four loops and most of the sites do NOT have electric hookups. Electric sites end with an "e" and are in the middle loops toward the center area. I stayed at __e, which had working and properly wired 30A power. It was a horizontally/width level site but a slight incline to reverse. Good privacy.

You can hear highway traffic from the campground, which would be worse toward sites 40, 41, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, which practically back up right up to the highway. However, there is very, very little traffic after dark.

Note that the campground has more loops than on the map view on Google Maps, be sure to check satellite view. I’ve also uploaded Streetview 360° images from a few spots around the campground and along the trails. The park map says they close a gate at the entrance at 10pm, but I don't know if this is true.

Cell service in April 2017:
AT&T: 5 bars LTE, 57ms ping, 4.59mbps down, 12.17mbps up
Verizon: 2 bars LTE, 30ms ping, 15.31mbps down, 3.97mbps up
T-Mobile: 2 bars LTE

As with all Minnesota State Parks, you need a daily or annual permit, and sites can be reserved online, even same-day. Reservations that begin today do not incur an additional reservation fee, but if you reserve tomorrow or later, there is an added fee.
