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

I spent three nights at Lazy Days Campground. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Since I was there on weekdays, I had the pull-through section to myself. The seasonal campers were in back-ins in separate rows. The pull-through sites are mostly on grass but are quite spacious and level. The hookups worked very well and were well located. The campground is extremely well maintained. It is clearly going to get even better over time. There are many trees that are currently only 10-20' tall. There is a very attractive pool area, as well as lots of things for children to do. The campground is not near any major highway so it was very quiet at night. I would recommend this campground, especially if you have kids. - Phil G

This is our third stay at this RV park in the last 3 years and it's our first time saying for two weeks. The young couple who own/run this RV Park are very energetic and friendly. The sites are very wide, spacious and grassy. We get about 10 TV channels including the 3 major networks. It's very quiet and peaceful on weekdays and busier on weekends. The pool is large and very well maintained. On weekends the staff give the children rides in a train around the park, there are mini-hayrides, a short dirt BMX bicycle track, volleyball, a large playground, basketball court and open grassy areas. An RV washing service is available on-site. We will be back again. - Roving RVer

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

This park is a real gem, especially if you can get a lakefront site in the lower campground (reserve early). Well-kept, shady, spacious sites, though not too long, as with most state parks. Anything over 40 feet and we wouldn't have got our car on the site, though there was parking close. Sites are electric only (30 amp) or no hookups. Docks and ramp close, looked like fishing was good, though I don't fish. Nice hiking trails through the park - you can start right at the campground. Highway is fairly close, but it gets quiet at night. Good Verizon voice and internet service, despite being well out of town. - JA1800

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 recently rented an RV Lot for the season and have been very pleased with the resort. It's well-maintained and has a private beach, marina, shower house and fish cleaning house. We also received a dock slip with the rental and plan to use the lake all summer. Overall it's a very nice RV park. - AlexandriaMNRV

A darling little RV park out in the country, about 5 miles off I 94. Family run park with super nice staff. Maybe a tiny bit tight for us big rigs, but unhook and enjoy some real Minnesota nice! You'll be glad you did! - John K

Beautiful place to end a travel day. Oaks for shade, green grass and a pond with paddle boat boats. Well over a mile from freeway so no noise. Full servicesite, good distance from neighbors, level with at least 50 tv channels over the air. Excellent Veeizon service with wifi available in office. We ordered pizza from menu in office and it was delivered to rv in 10 minutes. - kim-sue13

The site was large enough and grassy. However, the roads in the campground were saturated and mushy with very little gravel. When leaving, work camper stated to just keep going to main road to prevent getting stuck. - ajoy922

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

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

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

While visiting friends and needing RV repairs we used this park which has only about 10 really level sites. It is an RV park within a popular shooting range but there was very little shooting of clay pigeons while we were there - mostly between 4 to 9 pm. Our site was level with 50 amp and water but we did not use any dump station although it was on the property. - Birdieman

This park is also a trap shooting park. It is about 1/4 mile from I-94, making it convenient traveling through Minnesota. We called ahead & were told no reservations needed. They have over 140 hook-ups with water and electric. There is no sewer but the dump station is located by the exit. It was quiet and though one could here traffic on the interstate it was not loud or annoying. The park is located about 5 - 10 minutes from town. It is a great place for one to two nights. It has a friendly, laid back atmosphere. There were not many campers when we were there, but if it was full, we could not have our awnings extend on our slides. The sites are definitely close for big rigs. - Kelsidy
