I am basing this review strictly on a drive-thru or preview of the campground. Agreed that the sites are uneven, muddy after a rain, the electric sites are close together and somewhat small. Very shady, so I'm guessing after the rain, mosquitoes would be terrible. Easy access to the highway. My eyeball impression is that this park was designed for tents, teardrops and pop ups. There is a cool non-electric wagon wheel set up that would be fun if you were camping with a group of people. Ranger at check in was very nice. I'm not crossing off this campground from my list because there seems to be interesting things to do and explore. Maybe a day trip. I'm rating a 6 as I didn't see everything. Campground a is a 4. We camped at Crow Wing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Every kind of store you need in the city of Brainerd. Please check out the campground if you are in the area. It might be better when it's dried out.

This review is based on having used the campground as well. The park and campground are great - if I could, I'd rate 9 for the park itself and 5 for the campground; reason being, MANY of the sites are way too far from being level. I never camp anywhere that stabilizer jacks aren't needed (those are to level your camper, if you're not an RVer) - but site #3 was absolutely ridiculous. We weren't able to switch because all the other electric sites were booked as well. As I walked the campground I saw that many of the sites were also pretty far from level. Not the end of the world for the others I'm sure, but DO NOT stay on site 3 if you've got a trailer of any kind. We camped at Crow Wing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

AVOID SITE #3

The hiking trails and historic sites are fantastic - I loved learning about the bustling town that once existed here, although you have to use your imagination for most of it since only one original structure still remains. It's still a very interesting walk though a usually-forgotten part of history. Some of the views of the Mississippi are breathtaking. I also found the park rangers to be extremely friendly and helpful, which is always appreciated.

The staff was very pleasant and not intrusive at all but made loops through the campground frequently. One major thing to note is the proximity to Camp Ripley - they were doing drills day & night so be warned if you don't enjoy the sound of guns shooting or explosions at 3am it might not be the best place for you to camp. Otherwise the campground is nice & shaded. The showers are HOT so be careful. Also not good water pressure at fill/dump station. We camped at Crow Wing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have dogs and want to go swimming head up 371 to North Long Lake - park in the Geological Marker lot and walk through some unkept grass/weeds but great for wading & swimming! This area used to be nice and mowed back in the 80s & 90s sad it isn't kept up but still a great spot to be on the lake for the day

Park has many nice hiking trails through the woods and along the Mississippi river. Not much to see of the old town of Crow Wing. Park is linked up to the Paul Bunyan Trail. Great paved bike riding trail through the woods. Can canoe in the Mississippi, although current was a bit strong when we were here. Campground was quiet, we had a nice area behind our site between the other sites that allowed plenty of space for the kids to run and play. Only a few sites to handle larger RVs; tents or pop-up trailers would do really well. We camped at Crow Wing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park seemed nice but we only saw it from the windows of the truck and camper as the mosquitoes were absolutely horrible. Luckily we weren't planning to hang around the camper much during our 2 day stay. We toured the Brainerd lakes area and kept our campground time to a minumum due to the mosquitoes. We camped at Crow Wing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
