As others have noted, easy access off I-94, road noise is there, sites close together, trees might block satellite access but ours was ok in site 3, sites are "side by side" so you see your neighbors entry and not their sewer hook up, they have wifi and it worked ok, no cable tv. Site 3 is perfectly level. - rncordy

We stayed one night and would return. The views of fields and lakes are picturesque! Very little interstate noise. We slept well and are light sleepers. Hookups are fine. Sites close. - sp123

We spent one night. The site is beautiful, and convenient, right off the interstate highway. But that meant you could hear the traffic all night. We tried to call ahead to two other locations, both of which were full. Both recommended this site, midway between them. We were quite pleased with the result. - TexPaul

Our group had four sites right on the lake plus two tent sites near the beach. The lake sites were a good size and the view was phenomenal. The drawbacks were the ground was all dirt and there are a lot of large oak trees which make it very challenging to back in to some of the sites. The groundskeeper told us that next year he plans to take out some of the problematic trees and put down grass seed in that area. The beach area tent sites aren't really marked as to their boundaries but they are spread apart quite far so they are huge and on lush green grass. There's also many trees in that area and an awesome view of the lake as well. The beach is nice soft sand. There is a floating raft in the lake that the kids loved playing on. There was a wagon ride for the kids in the evening. There is fishing off the dock or you can rent boats, canoes, kayaks, etc. The campground is mostly seasonals. They said they have close to 30 overnight spots, but we only found 16 or so, and half of those are in a large open area with no lake and no trees. This was one of our favorite locations for our family camp out and we had multiple requests from our group to return here. - Juniper94

27 E-W sites and 2 full hookups on lake shore. On an excellent fishing lake with many permanents. Very well maintained, neat park with some monster pull thrus with E-W only. Just two full hookup back in sites. Friendly check in and manager lives on site. Very quiet with good access. A little off the beaten path but I would stay here again. - run2

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. - AlexandriaMNRV

My review is from the perspective of a big rig (45'MH). First the good. Quiet location, not heavily used (on our weekday stay), easily navigable for large rigs, cheap, and contrary to what the campground info says, there are a couple of 50 amp sites. Now the bad. Site are close together, not a lot of gravel for heavy rigs (so if wet, be careful), utilities not conveniently located, not very clean (lots of dog excrement in our site), no dump station, limited shade sites. - Selectively Unemployed

This campground has great potential. Good views of Pebble Lake and lots of wide open spaces. There is a separate area for tents and RVs. All sites can accommodate any size RV. The town of Fergus Falls is about 3 miles away. The main road into the campground and all of the sites are on packed gravel. All sites are back-in. None of the sites are level, some worse then others. The electrical box is shared between two sites. Within each utility box there are one 30-amp and four 20-amp outlets. The water spigots on most sites are located way in the back. You would probably need at least 50 feet of hose to reach the faucet. There are only two vault toilets for the entire campground. These toilets were probably designated for the bike trail head (Central Lakes Bike Trail). Wi-Fi, cable, showers, and a dump station are not available in this campground. Only one interior street light was working. The fee box is located at the entrance to the campground – no camp host on duty. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. No reservations so it’s first come – first served. It was very quiet at night. We would definitely come back here if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot rig. - adsaxs

On Thursday before Labor Day we were looking for somewhere to stay over the long weekend and found this park on RV Park Reviews. We called and were told that the park is first-come, first-served and that it was unlikely to be full on a weekday. We arrived mid-afternoon and picked site 8, probably the best site of the 14 electric sites, with good shade. By Friday evening, the electric sites were all taken. As good luck would have it, the other camper using the shared power pedestal only used a 20 amp connection, so we could use the 30 amp connection. The park is located right on the 55 mile Central Lakes paved rail-trail so that was convenient for us on our bikes. Also, the annual steam threshers' reunion at Rollag was only 50 miles away and is definitely worth a day or more. Electric sites are mostly back in. Although a big rig could fit in here, there may not be room for it plus a towed on the site. We saw a newspaper article indicating that the city will likely improve the park with proper restrooms (instead of pit privies), improved electrical service, and a dump station (none here now). We'd definitely stay here again due to the good bicycling opportunities. - Jay Rutherford

Beautiful place to end a travel day. Oaks for shade, green grass and a pond with paddle boat boats. Well over a mile from freeway so no noise. Full servicesite, good distance from neighbors, level with at least 50 tv channels over the air. Excellent Veeizon service with wifi available in office. We ordered pizza from menu in office and it was delivered to rv in 10 minutes. - kim-sue13

The site was large enough and grassy. However, the roads in the campground were saturated and mushy with very little gravel. When leaving, work camper stated to just keep going to main road to prevent getting stuck. - ajoy922

They prefer you arrive after 3:00 but accommodated an earlier arrival. Our friends received the Passport America rate but we did not go change ours to that. A delightful place to stay. Very nice people that run it. Our rooftop satellite and Verizon wifi worked well. The management told us of an impending storm and possible tornado and to keep our weather radio on. They told us where to go if it happened. Luckily it was only wind and rain. We would stay here again. - rolling homeless

We stayed at site 149 in the Lower Campground. The Lower Campground is on the lake, and it is a gem. The boat launch is right next to the lower campground. If you have a boat you can beach it right at the lower campground.
This campground has both electric and non-electric sites, and are back-in sites. The sites all book up fast during the summer, especially the electric ones. You are only supposed to be able to book the sites one year in advance. Some folks have found a way to manipulate the reservation system by changing their dates after they make reservations. Point is, plan very early.
This park is one of the nicer ones in the state, and is within 9 miles of Alexandria, which will have all supplies necessary. A pretty well stocked convenience & liquor store (with propane) is only a mile a half away too.
The upper campground contains a mix of fairly open and nicely wooded sites, so make sure you know what you're reserving if you have a preference. The upper campground is not on the lake itself, but the boat launch is only about 1/3 mile away. Both campgrounds have hookups and nice showers & restrooms. There is also a dump station at the park.
The ranger station also has ice, firewood, and a few basics. Do not bring outside firewood into the park as it is banned. There is also a swimming beach, hiking trails, fish cleaning station, and dump site within the park.
If there is one drawback here, the extra parking gets tight when the campground is full. All in all, Lake Carlos is a really nice state park, just plan your summer stay early. - Nthernlgts

This was a very popular state park. Seemed like every slot was full. The site was clean and well laid out. We only stayed for one night but truly enjoyed this campground. We arrived late and the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly even though it was time for them to go home. - CO_Clarks

This park is a real gem, especially if you can get a lakefront site in the lower campground (reserve early). Well-kept, shady, spacious sites, though not too long, as with most state parks. Anything over 40 feet and we wouldn't have got our car on the site, though there was parking close. Sites are electric only (30 amp) or no hookups. Docks and ramp close, looked like fishing was good, though I don't fish. Nice hiking trails through the park - you can start right at the campground. Highway is fairly close, but it gets quiet at night. Good Verizon voice and internet service, despite being well out of town. - JA1800
