A vert shady RV park with lots of elbow room. Spacious pull-troughs. Very clean and reasonably quiet. Grassy pull-through lots can be soggy in rainy weather. Staff very friendly and helpful. Have stayed here before, and likely to return. - W Davidson

This is a lovely park. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The buildings are clean and kept up. Lots of shade, and a quiet place. Lots are strangely laid out, but usable and with good service. - W Davidson

We stayed here in a 41 foot Monaco Motorhome for 4 nights. We have relatives in Little Falls (22 miles away) which was very convenient. The owners on sight were very cordial and helpful even to cut a pine tree branch so it wouldn't rub the side of our slide. The spaces are so wide you could fit 2 campers in one site. Plenty of parking for our relatives to use. The ac, but observed owner cleaning them each morning. Hard workers and it shows. Clean park would give it a 10 out of 10. Would stay again in a heart beat! Thanks owners for a pleasant stay. - Liv'in The American Dream

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

A small, well kept park for smaller rigs. I called ahead to ask if there would be a problem with a big rig, as a previous poster had mentioned. The owners answer was that he could handle any size rig. That may be true if you don't mind a few scratchs from low hanging tree branches and putting strain on axles because of the tight turn requirements because branches are hanging down. Also, there's a very steep short incline driving into the camping area. There is only one 50 amp site, no Wi-Fi, the camp sites are right by the freeway, and the train crossing is also very close. We would not stay again. - run2

Small little park in conjunction with a 7 unit motel. Very clean. Owners are very friendly and helpful. It is a little tight for big rigs. We stayed here in a 38ft fifth wheel. The rate was for Passport America. Wi-fi is very weak and unreliable. - Davesam

WOW! This park is quite a way off the interstate but it is worth the drive. We had no issues in our 45' motorhome. The sites are huge with a picnic table and fire ring. They have lots for kids to do - pool, playground, baseball field, BMX track. Only 2 bars of Verizon here. There is a great little golf course called Double Eagle Golf & Grill that is well maintained and has great food. - BnK_RVLife

We needed a park that had long enough pull throughs for our MH and car trailer and this park is the only one that had space available for a 2 week stay in the area. Very rural but easy in and out, long fairly level grass sites with good FHU convieniently located. Busy on weekends during summer mostly younger familys and the park is very kid friendly with some fishermen but not as noisy as we had expected. Quiet during the week. Not much signage and when we called for directions they were pretty generic but GPS did guide us right to the entrance. Verizon was good and we did not use park wqi-fi. Would stay again if needing FHU for extended period of time. - run2

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

A little city park which was perfect for an overnight stop off I94. We stayed on a weekday when the ball fields were quiet. It is a first come park and there were several campers on July 3, but also some open sites. It was very quiet with a nice concrete walking trail. Our site was right on the Sauk River which was pretty. We definitely would stop again. - busyteach

This is a hidden gem if your passing along I-94 and need to stay overnight. 50 amp & Water for $15/night pay box at campground. Right along the banks of the Sauk River, river sites only have 20 or 30 amp there are 4 sites with 20, 30 & 50 amp, next to ball diamond. One pedastal for every two sites, so some utilities on opposite side of most trailers or RV's. No checkout time, no reservations, 7 night maximum stay. Nice grassy park with gravel pads, level sites. The four sites by the ball diamond are big rig accessible. No sewer hookups, but a nice dump station is available. Verizon data speed 3.34 mbps. Able to get satellite TV reception at our site. - dmkimm

On a holiday weekend when most parks are full and noisy, this little park is quiet, shady and offers a good night's sleep for weary travelers. Grass lots a little confusing to pick your place, But there was adequate space and people cooperated in their choices. What a bargain for an overnight. Be aware there is no staff, no office, no amenities other than full hook ups a picnic table, shade and a toilet. - W Davidson

Pretty little small town campsite perfect for an overnight. Drop box to pay at the washrooms, $15 gives you a modern full service campsite with electricity, water, sewer. (Cash or cheque only.) There is a nice children's playground in the same park. Town itself is a typical midwestern one with gas and groceries available within walking distance. Police station is visible from the park so we felt safe. Mature trees, nicely tended grass, all very clean. The campground is run by volunteers and any one of them driving by checks up. You must register within 4 hours of arriving. We had only one complaint, that being there is also a rest area for truck drivers nearby and there was a lot of coming and going of trucks all night long. Still for an overnight, especially when in October when so many places are closed, it was perfect. - Judy Birchland

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

I stayed here for two nights while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with a tow car. Smaller state park gifted to state by Lindbergh's family after his historic flight -- it was the family farm on the Mississippi River. Lindbergh House and Museum are across the street from the park. Two loops -- a 15 site electric loop and a 22 site primitive loop. Set up is a little weird. The water/dump station is to the right of the electric loop. If you fill up with water you have to circle around the primitive campground or by the bath house and come back down to enter the one way road into the electric loop. The problem is that from that direction the angle into the one way road was too sharp for me to make the turn and I ended up having to drive out of the park (there was no turn around loop at the front of the park) and turning around up near the city and coming back into the park. This wasn't just me -- I watched someone with a pick up and large trailer who ended up doing the same thing. There is no issue if you don't have to fill up with water first or if you have a small camper. Sites themselves are nice -- very wide gravel with dirt and separated from other sites by thick trees -- in fact the whole campground part of the park is in deep forest. There are indeed a LOT of mosquitos. The trails are wonderful -- well maintained (a few boggy areas but nothing impassable), well marked, and mostly through the forest and along the creek -- but again -- bring your insect repellent. I can't imagine the park ever feeling crowded even when full. Very quiet and secluded feeling. Verizon worked well. - SoloRed

I did a drive thru of Crow Wing and Lindbergh parks to see if I would like to stay. I have a smaller travel trailer and I don't think my TT would fit in any of the sites. Again, this campground was designed for tents, teardrops and pop ups. The sites were somewhat spread out, low on grass and high on mud after rain storm. A bonus is the campground is small, so less noise. In the city of Little Falls, so supplies are near. I will likely pass on staying here as other parks are so great. Please check out this campground for yourself as I did an eyeball assessment, which isn't fair. I will continue to watch reviews. - brendajoro

I was there for the fall color. Absolutely awesome. Very few campers, great trails to walk, quiet and peaceful. There are no annoying lights. You can hear distant trains sometimes at night but they're far enough away to be cool. A river runs behind the camp sites and bridges on the trails to cross it. Enough conveniences locally to make it fun and interesting. All in all it was a great visit - Dead Mule John
