Average county park 45 min west of the Twin Cities. Stay one weekend. Was very quite and relaxing. Has nice dump station that we use frequenly coming home from other places. Place is always full on weekends. Has beach, but personally would not go in. Has walking trails, Large grassy sites. Not the cleanest campsites, but been to worse. Very few amenities, but families seem to enjoy it anyway. Only 1/2 of the site have electric.
Beautiful park. Plenty of hiking trails for a long weekend. Fall colors wonderful. Rest rooms and Showers are what one expects at a State Park, but been in much worse. Will stay in the "tent" areas next time, as it was much quieter and even more scenic. Good vegetation cover between sites even in October in the Semi-modern. Wild Turkeys, coyotes and other critters add to the ambiance.
Reserved a week based on website and recommendation here - stayed one night. Sites are very narrow, dirt, and directly below a highway. The constant whirling of tires was depressing. The rest of the resort is across the road. We were told by the owner the week before the amenities would be available. When we got there, everything was closed for the winter. We had to keep the air on to drown out the highway noise to sleep. Although the lake is 3 feet from the picnic table, the view is of cabins across the bay.
One of the cleanest campgrounds we stayed last year. Owners understand service and keep an eye on things. We really enjoyed our stay. Although no swimming beach, the pool seemed adequate for kids. The reason not a 10 is because it is popular with families - we tend to like a little more privacy. However we are going there again next year with friends who have children.
