This is a wonderful park located on Mississippi River. We felt like it was a State Park-nice level sites, clean park, friendly staff & neighbors, very peaceful. I'm very proud of the military support I seen displayed at this campground. I'd stay here again & recommend to others. - AAvila

The park is nice with real friendly campers. I only stayed two nights and six different people stopped by to visit. The deck on the riverbank was nice to sit at and watch the boat traffic. Our site had a raised deck with a picnic table. - Hobbes

Pull thru site on level concrete. Camped here for 7 days. Plenty big for our 39' fifth wheel and truck. Mixed in with permanent sites but not an issue. Park is well maintained and clean. Our site was about 100 yards from the Mississippi River. Nice deck on the water. Did not use bathrooms or showers. Wifi weak. Trash pick up at site. Monticello is a nice town. Everything you need close by. I would stay here again. Owner very friendly and guided us to our site. - Clockdoctor

Not bad for a quick getaway.....It did appear that many if not most people at the campgrounds were year round residents, some VERY sketchy looking sites. Overall, it suited our needs. - Matt Klein

We found this place on our GPS and needed a place to stop for one night. The office is an old travel trailer outside, what was, the camp office. We found out that the owners couldn't get permits renewed for some unknown reason so the office and associated amenities was mothballed. It looks like this park was really nice at one time but not now. It is really run down with mostly permanent residents. Our site was right in front with 30 amp and no sewer. It was OK to plug in for the night but not much else. It looks like the 30 amp was protected by fuses, not breakers in the pedestal. We didn't look around much and if this park has restrooms and showers, they were probably disgusting. If you are looking for a safe place to hook for one night and plan to stay in your rig, this would be an OK park, otherwise for the price, there are better places to stay. We were told there was a dump station but we didn't need it. Our site was right in front of the office and the free WiFi was decent with one bar. - sprinter55

Old, poorly maintained park. Roads are dirt as are the spaces. Many longterm residents and many motorcycles and 4 wheelers. Some grass but thin. Too much bird crap everywhere to enjoy being outside. Peafowl and guineas everywhere and they are really noisy especially when about 10 of them gather under you rig and start their screeching at 6 am. WiFi is non-existent. Manager said it was working in her mother-in-law's house but I stood under the antenna and had zero signal. This was true for the 2 days we were in the park. - PDDeen

Very clean and well maintained. A lot of rules that are enforced. No access to trails or other activities. No pool. Won't stay here again. - MarkandLaura

This is a very peaceful location. The owners are great. We were driving through Minnesota and needed a place for the night. They were very accommodating and the site was great. It is a campground with many retired campers and they really do not have kids at the campground. It was so relaxing and clean that we may make a trip back just to relax sometime. We really appreciated the hospitality - Cudpal

RiversEdge RV Park is a quiet seasonal RV campground in Becker MN. With many large wooded lots located on the Elk River near St. Cloud and the Twin Cites. Me and my family enjoyed the peace and quiet very much. - RiversEdge

We stayed in the overflow along a golf course with water and electric. It was very green everywhere, but a nearby railroad had many loud trains and train whistles, especially while we were attempting to sleep. This is an Airstream only park, though we saw a motorhome of a different brand also. it was a busy weekend and the overflow was on grass and quite level, so we were glad to find it. I don't know what they have with full hookups since most of it seems to be sites owned by Airstream owners. Overall it met our needs for the night except for the trains. - AirstreamGene

What a find! Speak we arrived in this county park for just a one night stay and wish we had known how unique it was to plan at least a week. The campers were very much campers and were enjoying the out-of-doors at the family atmosphere here. A mixture of tense and RVs and very happy families. The sides could easily hold big rigs and were spacious. They included electric hook up for an additional charge and 10 sites had water all have picnic tablesand fire rings. Because the park is small it makes heading to the beach easy. If you have a boat there is a boat launch on site. With so many people out on the water fishing, tubing, and waterskiing. Many locals come this way so reservations would be needed in advance especially for weekend stays. We would certainly return here if the opportunity arises. We highly recommend this location for families, seniors, and anybody wants a little bit of tranquility. There is a dump station on site as there are no sewer connections at the campsite. - John-Jean

Very nice, family friendly campground. The prices is right. Lots of shade and there are several sights with paved pads and lots of grass, not all are this way but some are. Pet friendly. Very clean restrooms and showers. Nice large beach great for swimming. Nice playground. Easy boat docking area and large dock for fishing. Nice fishing lake. Would recommend. - babytygger

Nice family park, little winding road to the park but easy to find. Quick friendly check-in no escort to site, site was narrow but acquitted, gravel and a bit difficult to level, lots of grass. Lots of children all over the park, lots of activities for the kids, slides, swings, pool, miniature gold, basket ball and big wheel rentals. No wifi and no cable TV but OTA was fair. - Tahoetom

I give this campground a 7 because the roads are hard to navigate. The trees have grown up and that makes access to some sites difficult. The campground has plenty of activities for children. The pool is entire campground is booked solid oneeekends. Weekdays are not full. There is a neighborhood of seasonal/permanent RVs but they are set back from the transient campers. Access is good, except in the park. Very little exists right outside the park. One must drive for 15 minutes to get great amenities. WiFi is good, satellite is not. I would not return here because I am 40' plus a tow. - 12858

An overnight stop. All utilities used and all worked well. - Sewmom

The sites are sandy with grass & very shady. We were in a 40' motor home & although the site was barely long enough for our rig, there was adequate space alongside it to park our towed vehicle. I would give a higher rating if pads were stabilized gravel or paved. Our site was spacious. We were able to shoot our roof top satellite through the trees for TV reception. The bathrooms are immaculate and the staff are very friendly & helpful. Our Verizon had 2 bars. - Biker2

Stayed here a few weeks ago. It started off with an awful smell in the office upon checking in. Things did not get much better. The place is very run down. It is overloaded with seasonals that are run down, and there is junk everywhere. They need to cut back the branches of most trees to prevent trees scratching your camper. Site was level. People party all night here. We will not be back. - jejmjj5

What is with all the terrible reviews? It also appears many of the reviews are for another campground in the area because AJ Acres doesn't even have a pool. I wouldn't believe what you are reading on here because it seems many of the reviews are not for this campground but rather a different campground in Clearwater. For some clarification, YES this campground has dirt roads, when it is dry they can be dusty and when it rains they can be a bit muddy, but you are camping-if you want tar and concrete camp in your backyard. No pool but a large beach. It is camping you will encounter dirt and bugs. You don't want it get a hotel. This is a great place to camp but be prepared to CAMP!!! They have amenities so it isn't like you are roughing it. Water, electric, fully stocked store, beach, bait, fishing pier, shower houses, swing sets, etc. Not first class like a resort but great for a family weekend out of the city to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. We camped here several times a year and keep coming back. - campit

We decided not to stay here once we had a conversation with the lady at the front desk. We stopped in at about 8PM just looking for a place to park and sleep and be on our way by 8AM the next morning. The individual was very rude and really didn't want us to stay. It was if it was to much work and when she gave me the price for 7 people she had the nerve to say you might as well stay at a hotel because it will be cheaper. From the outside things looked nice but if that is how people in Minnesota treat people passing through, - Cudpal

This would be a decent $12 park.
The park has a nice playground and riverside - which is open to the public/city.
The sites are 90 degree turns with a pretty narrow asphalt road. The road has sunken near the restroom (septic system?) They had dumped a bunch of big river rock to compensate.
We had a 40 rig and arrived at night, and in the rain. There was a lot of standing water. I was worried that we were going to get stuck if we had to drive in the grass. I found one site that had an angle to it, but we had to drive over the sunken part of the road. My husband said "I'll just gun it!" and we made it.
Sites are electric only with posts with 20 and 30 amp stuck every-other site. Presumably shared?
There was a dropbox with self-registration. $25 a night. Price increases after 14 days. I never saw a ranger.
There was a water spigot in the center of campground. A pick up truck came and filled 2- 55 gallon drums.
NO DUMP STATION!
Bathroom was a running water toilet and sink only, no showers. Dusty, low quality. - mmette00

A place to stop. Fairly private. Not very handy for bigger rigs, our 30 ft 5ver used every bit of the roads and needed grass to finish the turns. Some trees need pruning. - stetwood

This is a large regional park I would give an 8 rating to. I would give a 6 rating to the RV sites, but we only paid $26 per night. The park is in a lovely setting in a deciduous forest. There is a lot of grass under the trees, a lake, and miles of paved walking trails. All the staff were friendly. The outer loop around the campground loops is paved. The campground loops and sites are dirt. They do get muddy when it rains. Sites are comfortably spaced. Four loops do not have hookups. Three loops have 30 amp electric. Two loops have 50/3o electric. The electric sites are electric only. There are no water hookups at any of the sites. There is an RV water fill station shortly after you enter the campground. There are water spigots throughout the campground where you can fill jugs. There is a dump station. There is occasional train noise, but it's not bad. There is road noise from the county road outside the park. You'll notice it, but it didn't bother us. We were too early for lake activities. In season they rent several types of boats and paddle boards. Site D12 was up a hill. The following are level 30 amp electric sites that are better: D1, D8, B29, B31. - Neil and JoAnn

Stayed here Thursday - Monday in early September in a 40' motorhome. Beautiful spacious park. Our site was level, but not all of them are, so double-check. Would have given the park 5 stars if they had water at the site. We kayaked on Lake Independence and Lake Spurzem. Hiked and biked the extensive trail system. Golfed at nearby county-owned Baker National Park which was in excellent condition. Park was nearly full Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. Practically had it to ourselves Thursday and Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon. Would definitely return and recommend to others. Fall colors here would be awesome. - HansonMN

The Bathrooms and shower rooms were kept very clean and showers were great...the area to do dishes was a nice addition... the area to park your car in, without being on grass was very small..and gravel pad for trailer uneven. Too bad other campers can be such pigs and leave such a mess..saw where the caretakers had a lot of clean up. - kaths
