Booking was on line, on arrival you self check in. No gate keeper, look for your site. The paperwork is stuck onto the pole marking the site number. If you arrive without a reservation, find any site without a reservation and move into the site. A couple of signs at the entrance would have been helpful showing the camping area. There is a map at the ranger station which did help after getting out of the rig to study it. Dirt roads surround the campground and the roads are easy to navigate. Some sites are tree covered and some open if satellite service is required. Our site had 20, 30 and 50 amp service and water, those without electric are marked. Picnic tables are new, each site has a fire pit. We never saw a ranger, but I did see a city pickup drive through once. I found the campground to be comfortable and would return if in the area. We stayed for two days. - Nautilus

A must-stay for the price! You're surrounded by a mix of conifers and deciduous trees in this peaceful campground. Two picnic shelters, a brand new bathhouse, a nice playground, a great beach a mile away, and many places to visit just a short drive away. You'll love staying here! - vumpire

This campground is owned by the city of Menagha, MN and is right on the south edge of town. Nice campground with lots of potential, underlining potential! Sites are spacious but many are unusable for a trailer like ours until they do some tree trimming. Even the trees on the roads need trimming. A mess around the fire pit and it was full of ashes. Also, someone had cleaned fish on our picnic table. They are in the process of building a new bath house and it looks to be a very nice one. Playground in park and a public swimming beach 1/4 mile away. Dump station in park has a $5 fee. - repeterson

The CG itself is quite nice with lots of trees, kind of like camping in the woods. Several seasonals and some of the sites were quite nice. Unfortunately we were in a newer section. Extremely unlevel for our 38 ft MH. First site was totally unworkable, moved to different site and our jacks sunk 4 inches into the sandy ground despite blocks and pads. Then steps hit the ground in the front of the coach. Had to buy a sheet of plywood and cut into 4 sections for the jacks. Was still unlevel. Young guy at office was sympathetic but unable to help. Noisy over the weekend. Decent hookups. No WiFi at our site. Would not stay again n this section. - Motorhome girl

Excellent place for camping and being close to the town amenities. Friendly personal, very clean. I like all the trees. Parking was easy even with the trees all over. I don't get the review about TV or Internet. There is 1 channel from the antenna. Who cares! If you are camping and want more channels, bring your satellite dish. And why do you want Internet? You are camping and in a campground. Not a hotel. FYI my phone was 4g the whole time of my stay in the grounds. I didn't do any exploring as my visit was related to being in town. But my stay at Big Pines was Excellent !!!! - Dalejr88

Pretty setting but quite a walk to get to river. No TV and terrible internet. If you complain about internet, you may be asked to leave. - Sunshine Larson

This is a small campground with no showers. The reason I rate it a seven is because of it's location. It is located in the town of Dorset and on the Heartland bike trail. Dorset is a small tourist town with several small shops and restaurants that are open only during the summer. All are within walking distance from the campground. Best to stay during the week because the restaurants are very busy on the weekends. The bike trail is paved and offers you access to literally hundreds of miles of Minnesota bike trails. We make this trip at least twice a summer. - repeterson

Park sits adjacent to the motel with a couple well-kept permanent mobiles in between. In a field at the edge of a grove of pine and spruce trees. We are parked pretty close kind of in a chain around the trees but no one is in the other campers. One is parked beside us with our doors facing each other. Full hook ups however.... Not much info on their website so I called ahead and the owner told us it is 30 amp. We got here, started setting up and realized it's only a regular house plugin. To her credit she did call around to about 10 places for us to find an adapter. Got one about 10 miles away and it's been working fine. The moral of that story is make sure you have an adapter with you!
There's a lumber yard across the highway with some noise from trucks and beeping during the day. They close around 5 pm.
Bullwinkle's Bar & Grill within walking distance. Less than a mile into town with several shops and restaurants. Beautiful area and a cute town that looks like it has a lot going on.
No extra amenities but it's all we need. Just a place to park with hookups for a fair price. Got here on Thursday and plan to stay the weekend before moving on. We would stay here again. - Meesha

We called at the last minute and they were able to get us a spot. What an amazing resort, everything from a pool to a beach. The sites are level and the interior roads and sites are gravel. There is game room for the kids. Restrooms and showers are immaculately clean, along with clean washers and dryers. Wifi is among the best we've experienced in our travels. They also offer pontoon boats, canoes and kayaks for rent. There is quite a few seasonal/permanent trailers that are kept very clean and tidy. Would we stay here again? Heck yeah, one of our new favourite spots. - Fun finders

We arrived with concerns about the park. They were unfounded. The owners were wonderful. They were completely accommodating. They parked our two units side to side with plenty of room for the toads. They let us use an open site to park our boat and the electric to charge the batteries. The office is open till 10 pm for ice cream. Lots of activities for kids and adults in a beautiful settting on a beautiful lake. New boat ramp, nice fish cleaning house. We are coming back next year. - Gdk491

In reading some past reviews I was somewhat skeptical until we arrived. BUT this park has it all with a staff that goes over and above to assist you. Besides the beautiful lake, they have an exceptionally clean shower/bath/laundry facility, multiple games for both kids and adults, AND they have a main office/store with many supplies- not to mention delicious ice cream and pizza!. It is a fun and active place with many children that is very well maintained. We will return!! - Sam and LeeAnn

It was off season and there were mainly seasonal campers in this park. Nice waterfront and a very clean and tidy place. I would imagine there would be a lot of activity for families during the summer. - PF Churchill

About 10 miles north of Park Rapids. Nice road to park, easy entrance. Water, sewer and electric worked fine. Parked on grass right at entrance across from storage. Mostly seasonal campers and it appears they only have 2 spaces for transient RVs. Gravel/Dirt interior roads. Fire pit and picnic table. Nice swimming pool. We would stay here again, good value. - Gladabout

Never again! We were told that we had a nice site. HA! We required 5 boards to level our camper on one side. 1 step out our door we encountered a stump. Fine sand/dirt ground cover would make for a HUGE mess if it rained. They ask for payment in advance for your entire stay (should have been a clue), non-refundable. Had we not already paid, we would NOT have stayed here. Couldn't find any sites in the entire park that we would have actually enjoyed using. The pool, showers, lodge, petting zoo, game barn and pavilion were all very nice. HOWEVER - if you are a weekender - don't bother. The sites that you are required to use are not worth the efforts. If you are "down by the lake" they don't tell you that it's a LONG walk uphill to the pool area. If it rained down there - the mud would be awful. Drive the extra 15 miles north and camp at Itasca State Park. - User2083

The Akeley City Park is very primitive but beautiful since it's located on 11th Crow Wing Lake. The sites vary in size and many of the sites require extra leveling procedures. The roads are dirt and can be very pot hole ridden especially in the spring. There are two restrooms which have showers but they only accommodate 1 person at a time. To my observation, there is no security, though it is possible that the town police do drive through at night.
I reserved a campsite in March (reservation for the season to start May 1, 2019) and was required to put down a $250 deposit. We arrived May 19th, 2019 and tried to park my RV on the site on May 20th, 2019. The site was so muddy that it was impossible to park or level the RV and I was mired in mud up to my hubcaps. Since more rain was in the forecast and I was traveling with two cats, as were my friends, I had to find a place to plug in the RV. I ended up having to pay $400 for 2 weeks until I could find another less expensive option. Now the City of Akeley refuses to give me back my deposit! At the Akeley City Counsel meeting on 06/12/2019 the audience was told that if you make a deposit to reserve a campsite (required) and when you arrive, the site is uninhabitable due to "an act of nature" (too muddy to park, tree falls, etc.) they get to keep your non-refundable (which isn't mentioned if you make the reservation over the phone) deposit! Do not make a reservation at this campground unless you are totally willing to lose your deposit even if the site reserved is uninhabitable. - katsuey

We stopped in for one night. We had a great site over looking the Lake, #16. The sites are not really pull throughs, they are driven in's. You park parallel to the road, long ways. The only problem we had was the circle at the end of the road was a bit small to turn around. - plp1280

We camped here to visit family; we were bummed about not having a campfire but the layout of the campground and park were great! Lots of green grass and neat trails - should have taken advantage of it more. Kids thought the showers could've been cleaner (concrete and tile) however there were 2-area showers, one for showering and one for dressing, with locked stall doors, which I appreciate. Bring your mosquito repellent! - SillyP605

We stayed 4 days. The creek and green disc golf area were wide open and fun to run in with two yellow labs. They also found the creek. If I had criticism it would be the laundry was not updated or very clean (the machines). The contact for the city and the camp host were very friendly and easy to work with. I would stay here again. - godoit

This is a city owned park. It is east of town and easy to find being right off US-10. The roads are paved and there is grass and trees in many sites. A more open site is best for satellite TV. There is no Wi-Fi. There are sites large enough for big rig pull thru. There is 50 amp full hookup sites. We were here a week visiting friends and it was a quiet camp, except for occasional trains across the highway. The camp is part of a large city park and very small zoo with Bison. Good place for walking. I would mark it higher except there is lack of Wi-Fi and swimming pool, etc. We would stay here again. - nmmotorhome
