"Not for the great outdoors, but as a landing place."

It's a casino, so don't expect to sit outside by the fire and gaze at the stars. It's essentially just a parking with full hookups. But it's already level, full hookups and affordable. Good place to stay when going to a concert or staying in the... Read more

"It’s a place to stay"

This place is pretty run down and in need of work. It’s a place to park your rig and sleep, not to camp. No fire pits, no picnic table. In a sketchy part of town. The people who were working there was very kind and helpful. Never felt unsafe.

"Quiet, close to everything"

Good location, sites were all pull-through, which made things easy since we got there kind of late. The site was decent sized. The people working here were friendly. This place is mostly geared towards adults; there is no pool or playground for... Read more

"Nice, friendly, close"

Nicest office I've ever seen, it was like a log cabin on the inside! People were very friendly, walked us to our site and helped guide the husband into the spot. We had a nice site right on along the river. The tent campers next to us set up a... Read more

We have family with a seasonal site here and they wanted us to come for a visit. When I called for reservations they were a bit rude at first until I name dropped the uncle we were visiting and then they were friendly. The campground could use... Read more

"Gorgeous, great location, stupid cheap"

This is a great campground. It's close to everything, on the bike trails, on the lake and it's so cheap! We stayed in a site with full hookup so we didn't have a great view of the lake, but just a short walk in any direction will get you to a... Read more

"What a weird set up"

Apparently, their sewer hookups are Y shaped, so every other site is essentially backward. That means, you walk out your door and you see your neighbor sitting out their door. Fun if you're camping with friends, weird if your neighbor is a... Read more

"Waterfront site and spacious"

Kudos to Prairie Island for having the best campground website ever! The sites are surprisingly big! We backed into our site, assuming a typical site size, there was enough room for another camper between us and the neighbor - so the neighbor... Read more

"Near the city while still feels tucked away"

Great place to stay if you want to be near the Rochester area. There is enough nature to feel like you're out in the woods rather than so close to town. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Other campers were very friendly. We met both a... Read more

"Good location, some sites have amazing views"

Loved being so close to Lake Superior and nearby walking trails. Walking distance to most things to do in town; the coffee shop/diner and the brewery. Site was set up weird. Sewer connection was nearly too close to the road to reach, water... Read more
