Imagine camping in a drive-in movie theatre, this is it. Several long rows of power supply boxes all in a straight line. Best check-in ever. He took my $18 and said "go wherever you want". No name, address, license plate number, nothing. That was great. Restrooms were clean and showers spacious. Has laundry and RV dump. It is what the name says, a trap and skeet shooting range. The Interstate is off in the distance (the shooters were aiming at them, not you the camper) and the traffic noise was audible. Just think of it as 'white noise". No shade as it is wide-open. Being Labor Day weekend and only two other campers were there. Cool! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is fine for an overnight stay. There was Wi-Fi but no cable. We did get satellite signal and antenna reception. I certainly was surprised to see a sign by the lagoon that warned of alligators. I thought it was a joke - so I Googled it. There have been alligators in the area. People get them as babies and throw them out when they get bigger. One was found frozen in March. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly and helpful staff. We wanted a pull through, but since they only had 1, it wasn't a big deal for us, so we took a back in site. They are spacious and well taken care of. We even got to see some guests play volleyball. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is an interesting park that is located adjacent to a motel. We had called asking for a pull-through site: they only have one! The motel clerk came outside (in her bare feet), told us we had to leave the park, go back out on the highway and turn into the business area behind them, then drive in between two buildings on a dirt road and we'd be in the site. Literally, the pull-through site is located ON the dirt road at the back side of the campground. We only used it as an overnight stop, but I was a bit worried that someone would come down that dirt road in the middle of the night and run into the back of our Toad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Seemed like young staff running the place. They let us park wherever we wanted. This park is a Good Sam park but not listed in the book. We stayed here 2 years ago, as we visit friends here. Easy to get to from the interstate. Lots of grass with crushed rock pads for the RV's. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not too many choices in Alexandria. This RV Park is affiliated with the adjacent Motel. There are NO bathrooms or showers for campers. Share laundry room with motel. Interior road is dirt, messy after rain. Site sandy gravel, grass,picnic table and fire pit at sites. Wi-Fi not working. Good satellite and Verizon air card reception, no Sprint service. Seems as though the RV Park was a weak afterthought for the motel owners. Good retail area nearby. Quiet at night. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed one night in this small park on our way through the area. It is on the side of a motel. We visited friends so really used the park as a place to sleep. There are not a lot of amenities, if that is what you are looking for. We found the lady owner very friendly. Gravel spaces were fairly level but the grass was not well groomed. The town has lots of shopping and, of course, tons of fishing. We will stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is really a second thought by the motel owners. They put down some class 5 and dug the hookups to call it a campground. The pro is that you can get a reservation. We camped on a busy August weekend and only 4 sites were full, 51 were empty. One major drawback is there is no showers or bathrooms anywhere. We arrived late at night and we needed a restroom. The owners would not allow us to use a bathroom anywhere. We had to wait to setup camp. Would not even let us use an empty hotel room. If you don't have your own bathroom don't bother. If you don't need the hookups there were more campers overnight at the Wal-Mart 3 blocks away. The Wal-Mart has a restroom you can use also. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We got a nice lake front site that let the kids play in the lake while we could see them from the trailer. The park has nice sites with grass between and alot of trees to provide shade. The park has some great hiking/running/biking trails as well. It looks like you can rent canoes at the boat launch area. The bathrooms had adequate facilities for the size of campground it was. The showers were fairly clean and worked well. We had good Verizon 4G service here. Alexandria is only a few minutes away if you need services or for shopping. Only complaint is the parking fee parks in Minnesota seem to like to charge. If they are going to charge it, make it part of the daily fee vs. having it separate. The price we listed included the daily fee for our tow vehicle. We had a nice relaxing time and definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in the tent portion of the park and the sites were very large and well shaded. Bathrooms and showers weren't the cleanest I've ever seen, but they weren't horrible either. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Another great great state park. No fishing dock, but plenty of places to fish. Good staff and nice campsite, very friendly people and dog friendly. We will camp here again, not too far from home. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fine State Park and a good destination. Campsites 109 to 124 in the Lower Campground face the lake, have great views, and get the fresh lake breeze. Other sites are very nice too. Nice hiking (ask the Rangers for the coordinates of the Eagle's Nest - they will even loan you a GPS so you can find it). Very clean facilities while we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful campground that's divided into an upper area and a lower area. Both campground areas are nice and very few sites are without shade. Great staff. The campground is located in a beautiful area of the state and there is a lot to see and do in the area. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Upper Campground has more shade and is more "private". The electric sites in the upper campground are not private, but the tent sites seemed very secluded. For the most part it was a nice, clean park. Its always very popular! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We recently rented an RV Lot for the season and have been very pleased with the resort. It's well-maintained and has a private beach, marina, shower house and fish cleaning house. We also received a dock slip with the rental and plan to use the lake all summer. Overall it's a very nice RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
