This park is beautiful especially since it is located in a fairly large city. Here is where it gets weird because the office and campground are not near each other, but on opposite sides of a highway. Not knowing this, we pulled in the campground area, drove around and around. Finally called the office only to find out it is located on the same side of the highway as the Falls (about a mile drive to the office). I told the ranger that I found the dump station, but no potable water. In A loop non-electric it's at site so and so. In the B loop electric at site B5 to fill up. Another camper couldn't have passed me while filling up and how annoying for site 5. Now, let's talk about the bathroom. It's old, a little musty and showers a little rusty. I've seen worse. The toilets are not flush toilets on the women's side, but vault toilets. We checked them out, but used facilities in camper due to rain. All day and night the big huge noisy fans on the roof are running to keep smell down. Again, annoying. It's fall, so I didn't smell much of anything. Yes, the bathrooms need to be replaced badley. We didn't hike because it has rained non-stop for 4 days. We will definitely come back if we can get one of the 6 electric sites. Also, once the campground host leaves, A32e is the best site in the park. This State Park has so much potential if there were more electric sites and a new bathroom. It's worth a weekend trip. We camped at Minneopa Minnesota State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to the falls and bison areas. This campground is in a fairly large college town. You can find everything you need here. Potable water NOT at dump station. Fill up at spigot in campground B5. Bring 2 camp mats in case of rain. Wish we had know all this before we arrived. Have fun and keep camping.

If you want electric with a large RV forget it there are only 6 sites with electric and they are small sites. This is one of the oldest state campgrounds in the state and when it was built it was for tent camping only since no one new what an RV was. My lower score is based on the lack of modern updates. The restrooms and shower house building in my opinion should be tore down and rebuilt as the showers stalls are not wheelchair friendly. A wheelchair can not roll into the shower stall. The floor in the shower (mens side) felt like it needed a good cleaning, it felt somewhat mildewed. Our price was a non electric site and we did get lucky as the outside temp overnight was low 60's. But then again it was somewhat wet but that is part of the camping game. We camped out in a van with a bed in back. I asked for a good site for dish reception and the guy at the station pulled out his notebook with pictures of every site they had. and he suggested a site that was a perfect spot for dish network echo119. The rest of the sites didn't look real good for a signal. But the downside was this site had no electric. But since I had my inverter to run the TV and my Honda to run the air to cool of the inside of the van for and hour before shutting it down to sleep it didn't matter. The waterfalls near here is a good view of a nice looking waterfall. If the showers were updated I would stay here again but if the are not I wouldn't stay here and I would look at another place. We camped at Minneopa Minnesota State Park in a Motorhome.
