The campground is on the far northeast of the State Fairgrounds. It is fenced, and gates are opened during events. It's about a half mile walk to the livestock buildings. The campground is basically a gravel lot with one-lane asphalt streets, 40' poured concrete pads on narrow sites. Parking a 40' motorhome would be very difficult for me if there weren't an empty space next to me or across the street. Our neighbor's awning was less than 4" from our slide out. With slides out on the MH, there was not enough room to park a car on the site. Bathrooms/showers are new and clean and double as a storm shelter. There is Wi-Fi in the park, but it was not turned on the week we were there. The weeds needed mowing or spraying and were 6-18" tall on our site. For a State Fairground, it's pretty nice. Too bad they crammed everything so close together and don't tend to the weeds. Trains roll through town about every 20 minutes day and night, horns blaring. There is an outdoor waterpark a half mile away.

Very good basics for $18 per night! The CG is along one side of a large municipal park that sits along US Hwy 81 on the edge of town. On one side trees and dense shrubs separate it from the riverbank. On the other side a fishing pond separates the CG from the other muni park offerings (playground, ball diamonds, etc.) The CG has long, paved, pretty level pads and 30 amp with some 50 amp. Sites are generally about 40' wide with grass. CG interior road is gravel and is wide. Muni park roads are paved and trees are trimmed so no worries with a big rig. At one end of CG is a trailhead for the Cowboy Trail (biking, walking), which is paved here for a few miles as it follows the river. Pay the iron ranger. A police car passed through the CG every few hours. It was quiet day and night, and the WiFi signal was strong. There is a truck stop for diesel across Hwy 81.

Clean, well-kept campground along the Missouri River. Asphalt roads. Sites are wide with asphalt pads, green grass, picnic table, and 30 or 50 amp electric. Not all pads are level front to back. Lewis and Clark Visitors' Center and a golf course are very nearby. A cable fence separates the road from the steep rocky bank and the water below. It's not a good place for kids to scramble on rocks. There is a spot or two for shore fishing on the water's edge.

Overall this was an OK place to stay while touring the area. Sites are well-packed gravel pads with grass lawns and picnic tables. The owners are helpful with directions through the road construction in the region. The good: easy 15 minute drive to downtown Duluth; roomy sites; warm pool; quiet setting away from the noise of city traffic and trains noise. Needs work: bathrooms and showers are due for a good cleaning; restrooms, pool area and office are looking tired.

Beautiful, well-kept park. All sites are asphalt back-ins with grassy area, picnic table and fire pit, and are amply wide. Sites are long enough to accommodate a large RV and tow or towed. Most sites appear to be level or close to it. At night the park is quiet and dark, and security patrols the place night and day. The pool was clean and warm (heated). Staff at both the RV park and the casino were friendly and helpful.

Roomy sites with picnic tables. Fire pits located in the large green space between rows. Asphalt parking pads with grass lawns. Some spots are off level but ours was fine. Lovely bike/hike paths leading around the lake and to Storybook Land. The whole complex has lovely landscaping, flowers, many newer playgrounds and benches to enjoy the views. The north campground and bathhouses are brand new this season. Downsides: Bathrooms and showers nearest us were acceptable, though they had no ventilation and were wet. Noise problems, etc., are between you and police department, as camp staff is off duty after 10 PM. Lastly, interior roads were narrow and people park their cars right along both sides of it. Long rigs have an easier time if arriving ahead of the busy weekend crowd, and if not in a hurry to leave.

This is a popular city park on Lake Kampeska, which is in the Watertown city limits. The newer camping area is very roomy and sunny, while the older area is shaded by mature trees. Interior roads are paved. Sites are grassy with fire rings and picnic tables. There is a nice playground and a good swimming beach. They also have horseshoes, sand volleyball, a basketball court, a baseball diamond and a large picnic shelter. The boat ramp is just north of the campground. They do not take reservations, so call ahead.

This is an easy, inexpensive place to camp if you're looking for no-frills. Price reflects 50 amp, water, and sewer. We were allowed to choose the site we wanted so we picked an area away from other campers. 20-30-50 amp available, as are W/E sites. Some sites are grass, some are gravel, and they come in various sizes. Interior roads are gravel and wide open. The Fairgrounds can easily be reached without driving through town. Restrooms were basic, and were clean. No playground equipment. We'll be back!

The place is huge and wasn't full, so we were allowed to park where we wanted and face whatever direction we preferred. Like others, we took up several spaces, but were charged for one. Most campers were very spread out or in small groups. It was quiet at night except for three train whistles. Security fence. Grass sites, some have shade. Gravel and paved interior roads. Dump station nearest us was clean, but wouldn't accommodate a large RV as access was tight and there was a gravel ramp on either end. It looked very clean. Showers/bathrooms were dirty with wet concrete floors. We use our RV bathroom and shower, so it wasn't an issue. A few sites have water and sewer hookups. With a motorhome, stick to the roads on the east side. Some of the driveways and crossroads in the middle and west had a dip that would have dragged our undercarriage. We cleared tree branches and overhead wires, but we were watching closely. Not a bad place to overnight if you use your own toilet and shower.
