We had reserved a pull through site a few days prior. Upon arrival, someone else was in our spot and we were given a non-pull through spot. Not only did the host not offer an apology, he was rude. We had to ask for the price difference to be refunded as the host did not offer. Laundry facility was nice but very expensive. Our site was very private but utility connections needed some work. Power box was full of spider webs. Some trash was in the fire ring and we had to clean it up. We did like that recycling was available and close. The porch was incredibly slippery when it started raining. We both nearly fell. Campground was OK overall, however, the poor customer service guarantees that we will not camp here again. We camped at Sawmill Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is out in the country and away from any towns. It is located on a tar road across from a golf course. The folks checking me in were helpful. They assigned me a spot and it was supposed to be vacant, but the people hadn't left. I was assigned another spot and that worked just fine. The next day I was credited money back because the site I had was a back in rather than a pull thru. I stayed here in a motorhome and would stay again if in the area.. We camped at Sawmill Campground in a Motorhome.

The owner wasn't there when we arrived, luckily our team leader had called him and got our site number. It rained for a week solid and then we were under water, they have serious drainage problems. Laundry was nice and clean, two of each. Wash was $2.25 and dry was $1.50. Excellent golf course just across the road. Very quiet and no frills park. We camped at Sawmill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great golf across the road at North Links. Papa George's is a fantastic place to get a perfect meal, a little on the high side on prices but worth every penny!!

Sites are too narrow and mushy for motorhomes. Steps of RV got stuck on wooden platform. He had to drag wooden patio platform away from coach with a bobcat to free the steps which got stuck. I had 10 inches space on the sewer side of coach and 4 inches on the door side when parked. The owner actually complained that we were "cutting into his coffee time and that I could not drive my coach and that I was accident waiting to happen". I them told him that this was our 2nd large motorhome and had made several trips to west coast without problems. The sewer drain provided no drop in height to allow for drainage. We left with near full tanks because of this. He told me that I needed to contact the county who required a 4 inch height for drains. A visual check at near by sites indicated that some sewer caps were the height of ours while others were maybe 10 - 12 inches. His customer service was horrible and I told him so. We camped at Sawmill Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Mankato area RV parks are few, until we found Sawmill Campground. It is located immediately northwest of Mankato in North Mankato, just off of Hwy 14 at the Rockford Road exit and east a couple of miles on County Rd 41. The campground consists of mostly full hookup pull-through sites and a few back-in full hookup sites. The owner lives on site and is super friendly. He is also adding some back in water/electric sites. The sites are nicely spaced apart and are rock with grass surrounding. The area around the campground is all open farm ground, so no city traffic. It is in a rural setting across from the North Links Golf Course, so not a lot of traffic, but still close enough to town. Verizon signal is strong, local TV channels are strong and free WiFi. Rates are scaled for 30 amp or 50 amp and are totally reasonable. Give them a call when you are looking for a nice campground in the Mankato area. We camped at Sawmill Campground in a Truck Camper.
