Alexander Ramsey Park, Redwood Falls, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here during the week, and there were plenty of sites available. The park roads are curvy and fun to drive on a scooter, however a little hard to maneuver with a large rig. It's best to come in from the north entrance. The sites are adequately spaced and pretty level, with the sites at the edge of the campground having a decent view of the river. There is very sketchy phone service in the area, no satellite reception at all. This is a great park if you like to hike. $1.9 million worth of concrete trails were just installed this month. Overall, it's a nice quiet campground in a quiet town. We camped at Alexander Ramsey Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The park has more than adequate trails, freshly concreted. The falls are within the park. There's a small zoo with bison. I lost count of the number of playgrounds for the kids. Eight miles out of town is Jackpot Junction casino. Redwood Falls is pretty quiet, but there are lots of big stores if you need anything.

Albert Lea / Austin KOA, Hayward, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a typical KOA with standard amenities...pool, store, laundry, ice cream social, etc. The facilities were clean and in working order, but nothing special. The men's restroom had been newly remodeled, and I would guess the women's restroom is next. The location is carved out of a cornfield, 7 miles from the nearest town. It is right off of I90 and attracted overnighters on their way to Mt. Rushmore. We stayed for 3 nights and didn't find much to do in Albert Lea or Austin, especially not in the middle of the week. The younger staff members could have been a little more friendlier, but all were accommodating. Our site was on the end of a row, spacious and shady. However, the area needed some rain, so it was pretty dusty. I wouldn't recommend this campground for a multi night stay. We camped at Albert Lea / Austin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Land of Memories Campground, Mankato, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stay here occasionally as it's close to home and the nearby state park is always booked. This is a quiet city park with wide open spaces for frisbee golf and soccer tournaments. Peaceful in general. The sites are very large and grassy with sites in the newest section almost too large. The newer the section, the fewer the trees. The bathrooms require a pass code to use, which is okay as there are a number of non-campers using the area for kayaking on the river. We camped at Land of Memories Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Oak Park Kampground, Garfield, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Nice, clean park convenient to the freeway. We had a drive-thru level lot with full hookups. There were nature trails and peddle boats to use. Nicely stocked camp store. The staff was very friendly and accommodating when their WiFi was down for a short time. Didn't even know there was WiFi available. The nights were quiet and relaxing. Although we didn't have children along, they included us in a Halloween themed weekend, featuring trick or treating and a haunted hayride. The new owners work hard to make sure any young campers are occupied with crafts and activities, and that's every weekend. Great place! We'll be back next season, with our grandchildren in tow. We camped at Oak Park Kampground in a Travel Trailer.

Collinwood Regional Park, Cokato, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for the weekend with two children and our dog. Although the campground and beach were clean and the sites were spacious, the managers were very rude to us and to our kids. No matter how many times we moved our vehicles, they were constantly around to make us get off the grass. We had one tire on the grass! We were told to put our dog on a leash, when their own dog was not on a leash, nor were two dogs on leashes of people I suspect to be seasonal campers. My daughter went to the camp store for ice cream, but was turned away although it was only a few minutes after the store closing. The door was still open. The manager was sitting at the cash register. Really? You couldn't take the 75 cents? Disappointing stay and a beautiful park. We camped at Collinwood Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.
