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

Clean, but older state park. Short sites, many unlevel. Don't know about the 40ft access, maybe!!! Quiet, cool, shady. A ways from town, probably better suited for a weekend or longer stay rather than an overnight. For us it was close to relatives and "old" friends. Only major complaint is the dump station. Located on a less than 2 lane access road, at top of rise in a slow corner, and the hookups are on the wrong side of RV if using when leaving!! AND, no water at dump. - GLB

This park has some fishing piers and a swimming beach. They have horse camp sites also. The sites were smaller than most Minnesota State Park. The dump station was on the wrong side of the road when you dump on your way out. - PackerFanRick

This park was nearly deserted the 2 days I was here. It is only about 2 miles from I-94 and 5 miles from downtown. You have to cross a private RR crossing. The first 24 hours, there were about 8 trains, the next 24 only 2. The train horn will wake you up. If the wind is from the north you hear the traffic from the interstate. On Monday night maybe 10 shooters were there until dark. On Tuesday it isn't open.
When it is open there is a person to pay who comes in about 5 PM, if no one is here you use a drop box. There is 1 washer and dryer ($1 each). You can find a site that is level without using levelors. - mrracechaser

Pulled in and had just a little difficulty finding the self registration (its by the Managers residence) but easy self check in with numerous wide, long and grassy sites to choose from. Middle of the week and only a few other RVs onsite. 50 amp power available but you may have to search a little. Water pressure was very good and we did not use the onsite dumpstation. We would certainly stay again if traveling through the area. - run2

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

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

Wish it hadn't been rainy & cold we would have enjoyed this park a lot more. Lovely setting with ponds and plenty of trees. Sites were level & well maintained. Services easy to access. - Our-Wandering-Casa

Really nice CG, quiet and in the country. Lots of shade trees. Spacious sites, gravel and grass. We were in a pull through site which was level with good hookups. Several seasonal/permanent. Owners keep everything nice. Little lake with paddle boats. Pool and playground. Large grassy field in the back is ideal for dog walking. We would definitely stay again. - Motorhome girl

As I pulled into this Park had many concerns about what I had gotten into, but was quickly surprised. Quick friendly check in and excellent escort to site, site was long packed pea gravel and so level did not use my equipment. Large tree would not allow satellite use but OTA was fine, sewer was at the very back of the site but a very long PVC pipe was present for extension but this set up made the entrance 13" above ground. Was informed that Wifi was having problems and only available at the office. Lots of trees and grassy area for pooch as no Dog Park. Well maintained park with pool and nice play area, small store with limited supplies. Only drawback I found was there is NOTHING around this park for 10 miles in any direction. (Some folks may like this) Verizon 3 bars. - Tahoetom

Some seasonal sites on either end. We stayed in a full hookup gravel site that was nicely shaded. Park is next to the Lake right in town. Easy walk to the Park and outdoor Theater. Relaxing and quiet. There was a lot of traffic on the road right behind us. City water park is right there too. We loved Sauke Center. Plan to tour Sinclair Lewis' home. - MrBill54

Very nice campground located on a lake right in town. The site we had was small and hard to get into but we made it. Nice walking and biking paths in the area and a short walk to the American Legion for a good meal. Host took the time to show me the site before we paid and helped us get back in. - repeterson

Was a nice city campground on the edge of town. Roads are paved and the sites are grassy and pretty level. The sites are pretty close together. You will get to know the family next to you fast. The bathrooms and showers need some up dating. As long as I could get a full hook up site I will go there again. - B HANSEN

We stayed in the lower campground on Father's Day weekend. We were warned when we arrived that army worms and bugs were bad in the upper campground. We didn't have bug issue in lower section due to strong winds, but the worms were gross. We thought the campground was going to be much larger from the map view. It's a nice sized campground, but very open. The lake is viewable from every site. We were lucky that there was such a breeze as temps were close to 90 degrees. It felt like 75 with the wind. The campers on lake could not put out their awnings due to the high winds. Our friend tried to paddle board, but it was too hard. Wind completely stopped at 6 p.m. on Saturday. We are not fans of back to back campsites, but we were with a group of friends. Our hybrid bunk end was 6 feet from the neighbors slide out kitchen. Our bunk end had to be zipped up, so we didn't get cooking odors. People did start to leave on Saturday evening due to weather forecast, also a non-issue. We used the older bathrooms near the boat launch which was clean. Friends said the newer bathrooms on the other side was very nice. Most of the back row sites have fire pits close to the road. We found out that there is a swamp behind the back row sites, so they could flood or be buggy. Camped in an expandable travel trailer. We will definitely return. - brendajoro

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
