Collinwood Regional Park, Cokato, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2005 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Extremely lovely small county park CG. Spotless bathrooms with showers set up as separate rooms with locking doors - Nice! Huge sites. A few pull-thrus, but most were back-ins. All nice and level. Some trees for the big rigs to watch out for, but nothing too bad. Water hookups were rather comical though. Not at each site, so everyone was running hoses with Y connectors off the spigots throughout the CG. Hoses snaking everywhere! Management seemed ok with it, very relaxed atmosphere. Just wood (delivered), ice and I think ice cream at the office. Grocery store 3 miles away in Cokato. Small picturesque lake to swim and fish in. Fills up fast in the summer! Great relaxing place! We camped at Collinwood Regional Park in a Tent Trailer.

Sibley State Park, New London, Minnesota

Date of Stay: May, 2005 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Lovely location about 2 hours west of Minneapolis. Sites vary but most were large and level with plenty of space between sites, even a few pull through's that would accommodate big rigs (just be careful of some low branches here and there). Of course this is a state park, so no paving, just packed dirt/gravel. The Lakeview CG was right next to beach area with gorgeous views of Lake Andrew. Probably very busy and noisy in the height of summer! Oak Ridge CG was closed when we were here so can't give any opinions but I'm pretty sure that one does not have any electric sites. Bathrooms were very clean and showers were free. Personnel were friendly and even stopped by our site to make sure we had everything we needed. One new thing with MN state parks this year is that you can reserve specific sites online - nice! Sibley is one of the more popular state park CG's and for good reason. Only real down side is that a fairly busy county road runs adjacent to the Lakeside CG. Nothing too loud and it was very quiet at night so this is being pretty picky! We recommend this park highly but don't go without a reservation! We camped at Sibley State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Land-O-Pines Family Campground, Covington, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2003 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We liked this place although there were a few problems. Lots of soft spots which would be a problem in wet weather (sites are basically just on the grass). Bathhouses were located by the seasonals, none by the overnight section! Bathhouses were OK, basically clean, but could use some serious updating. Great activities, pretty location on a small river with sandy banks. Rentals were very iffy looking- not sure I'd want to rent an old run-down school bus or old popup! Seasonals were a mixed bag, some in good repair, many needed to clean up their place. Would go back just for the activities and nice location alone. We camped at Land-O-Pines Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Hidden Oaks Family Campground, Hammond, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2003 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This review is somewhat difficult because some things about this CG were great: planned activities, entertainment, beautiful white sand river to wade in, lovely live oak shade trees, plenty of room for kids to run and play. These areas would rate a 9/10. Other areas were not so good: bathrooms that were clean but always crowded and in desperate need of updating, uneven muddy dirt roads, some unlevel sites, poorly marked sites, outdated electrical service to sites. These issues would rate a 2/3, so overall my rating is 7. I would go back here. The seasonals were kept up nicely, the staff were friendly for the most part. They just need to pump some more money back into the CG and refurbish it a bit. Definitely more a family type place, not an "RV resort". They have a fun website that is kept fairly current with the events they sponsor. We camped at Hidden Oaks Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.
