10 RV Parks near Brandon, Minnesota

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

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

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

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

This is an older motel (re-named several times) at some time they added the RV sites in an inner and outer loop. Not sure anything is level, we sure were not. IMHO not worth the $$, but there is nothing else in the area with FHU. Pets welcome, no dog area, but plenty of grass in the middle (this floods with rains). OTA TV. We stayed here to visit family in the area, if there is a next time I will look harder at other options. - Sergent Major

Sites could use some leveling, but CG is clean. Price is very good. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Wifi is very usable. This is not a 'resort' CG, but if you want somewhere to stay while going out and about, it's great. For the best satellite and wifi reception, get an inner spot. - Walt Bennett

This park is mostly a location for working in the local area. The manager was very nice and gave me a site but added that she wasn't sure if someone was there or not. If so, then pick an open site. Even though she didn't ask me to return and give her my location if I moved, I did anyway. They had some storms the night before and she wasn't sure if the Wi-Fi would work or not. Later in the day and this morning it seems to be working OK. The park is small with dirt/gravel sites that are small but it works for an overnight. It was quiet so I would stay here again when passing through. I selected tight turns for interior roads but that is mainly due to parking of the residents. If they were to park properly, then no big deal for the tight turns. - Jack&Wanda

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

This park office opens at 2:00 so if you get there earlier, just look at the board and pick a spot. Once the office opens just stop in and pay. It's a very laid back place with lots of grass. Our site was easy to level in and the utility post was well located. It was not busy at all while we were there. All pull thru sites. The 50 amp sites seem to be at the end of the rows toward the office. Dump station is located near the entrance and they charge $4. We stayed here in a 42'MH towing. Would definitely stay here again, very peaceful. Walmart etc nearby. - User3025

While visiting friends and needing RV repairs we used this park which has only about 10 really level sites. It is an RV park within a popular shooting range but there was very little shooting of clay pigeons while we were there - mostly between 4 to 9 pm. Our site was level with 50 amp and water but we did not use any dump station although it was on the property. - Birdieman

This park is also a trap shooting park. It is about 1/4 mile from I-94, making it convenient traveling through Minnesota. We called ahead & were told no reservations needed. They have over 140 hook-ups with water and electric. There is no sewer but the dump station is located by the exit. It was quiet and though one could here traffic on the interstate it was not loud or annoying. The park is located about 5 - 10 minutes from town. It is a great place for one to two nights. It has a friendly, laid back atmosphere. There were not many campers when we were there, but if it was full, we could not have our awnings extend on our slides. The sites are definitely close for big rigs. - Kelsidy

The rate I listed does not include the extra $5.00 per dog we were charged. This campground is quiet and clean, but for the money charged, I would expect the grass sites to be concrete, or at least gravel, and be more level. The office is rarely manned and most everything is handled on the "honor" system. The utilities worked well but the sewer inlet was a bit high which might cause some to have a bit of a problem. Overall, this campground was easily accessed, and the internal roads were wide enough for the biggest rigs, although we kicked up a lot of dust as we drove through. - glenstmary

I spent three nights at Lazy Days Campground. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Since I was there on weekdays, I had the pull-through section to myself. The seasonal campers were in back-ins in separate rows. The pull-through sites are mostly on grass but are quite spacious and level. The hookups worked very well and were well located. The campground is extremely well maintained. It is clearly going to get even better over time. There are many trees that are currently only 10-20' tall. There is a very attractive pool area, as well as lots of things for children to do. The campground is not near any major highway so it was very quiet at night. I would recommend this campground, especially if you have kids. - Phil G

This is our third stay at this RV park in the last 3 years and it's our first time saying for two weeks. The young couple who own/run this RV Park are very energetic and friendly. The sites are very wide, spacious and grassy. We get about 10 TV channels including the 3 major networks. It's very quiet and peaceful on weekdays and busier on weekends. The pool is large and very well maintained. On weekends the staff give the children rides in a train around the park, there are mini-hayrides, a short dirt BMX bicycle track, volleyball, a large playground, basketball court and open grassy areas. An RV washing service is available on-site. We will be back again. - Roving RVer

This is a city campground comprised of both seasonal and overnight campsites. The seasonal campsites appear to have different amenities, making it difficult to answer questions about sewer, water, space, etc. The overnight campsites have electricity only. We have a 35 ft. trailer and were given a site that we could not have gotten into except for the fact that the campsite behind us was empty when we arrived, allowing us to pull through. Had this site been occupied, we would have been up a creek with no way to back into our site due to space constraints. The office closes at 5:00, so we would have been unable to request a different site at the time. We felt that $35 a night for such a cramped site with electricity only was a bit steep. We could have camped at a state park for far less money, gotten a larger site and had the same amenities. The bathrooms were clean and appeared to be new. Fishing off the dock in the marina was terrific. The playground is mediocre. I've seen better playgrounds and I've seen worse. There is a city park with tennis courts and a swim beach nearby, but these would be a long walk for most people, so plan on driving. There is also a nice paved bike path adjacent to the campground. - Jen5
