17 RV Parks near Rushford, Minnesota
Sep 2018 - $27.00
This is an old mobile home park converted to rv lots. The lots are large , so easy to get a larger rv into. I found a lot that had satellite view, most lots have mature shade trees. The old gravel pad from mobile home is not exactly where you want to park but just move over to what works. I did not want to get a 40,000 lb mh to far off in grass so I had to use an extension on my electric cord. The electric was a good clean 50 amp, only a couple of lots had 30 amp so have an adapter if needed. Had a strong Verizon signal , the tower is just up at top of bluff. The town is just a short walk and has several places to eat. The bike trail that runs through this area is right along side park. The manager walked out and helped everyone I saw come in. I plan on going back and spending more time in this area. The owner of park should invest in some gravel so rv pad is alongside sewer and water and extended back so electric is within reach. - what next

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend. Everywhere was full so we opted for here. We had a pull thru all grass and mud, but not long enough to park our truck. We had to park the truck on the side. Most of the park is full time folks with one small area for folks like us. It did have a nice general store and the staff was friendly and the store had the only WiFi. No WiFi or cell service in the park. Due to the holiday, the park was packed with families and lots and lots of children. It rained a lot which made it muddy. There are two small towns nearby (10 miles). Not one of my favorite parks. - Tom-Sandy

Older reviews sum it up. Just wanted to add best suited to smaller and medium rvs. We did fit 43 feet in midweek. Entrance narrow, roads narrow but trees are well trimmed. Owner helpful , had a full service 50 amp spot. Couldn't get Satalite from our spot phone service 1 bar for Verizon. Lots are grass we had the only gravel spot 107.
Every rv park in this area is for smaller rigs. Check out Rushford for converted mobile home park. - what next

This is a very pretty campground. The office personnel were nice and friendly. It is not set up for a big rig coach. Leveling was difficult and bugs were very bad. The campground was extremely crowded with multiple tents and pop-ups on each site. It is a great place for children and family gatherings, but not for big rigs. The roads are very narrow for maneuvering. - larriin

We've stayed here before. The park is right on the Root River. Things you can do: fishing on a really good trout river. Tubing, kayaking, etc. - Cory S

Very nice park next to a river and cliffs with eagles flying! Probably our only complaints were no cell or wifi service. Local channels on antenna and Dish service ok (missing some channels). It was quite a way off of interstate 90, but really a nice place with beautiful scenery. - rcf

This is the 3rd year we stayed in May for the MSRA (Minnesota Street Rod Association).
Our group had 104 RVs for this year's spring camp out. We were the first ones to stay on a site that was just added. Could not be any better. Very nice lawn. Well cared for park, very clean and well maintained. No mosquitoes!!! - northern boy

Please note that the Bridge on Highway 250 between Lanesboro and this campground is closed as of June 2016. The area is a river valley with bluffs, and the decor was an additional 15-to miles. Plan accordingly if you are planning to visit in the summer of 2016. The bike/pedestrian bridge to Lanesboro is open.
The campground was nice. There were a large number of seasonal campers and still an abundance of sites that were available for reservations or drop in. We camped Sunday through Tuesday and there were several sites available.
The proximity to Lanesboro is great, maybe 1/3 mile. The Root River Bike Trail crosses the driveway into the campground. This is a great place to stay if you plan on bicycling the trail.
As other reviewers indicate, the owner is very hands off and laid back.
We plan on returning in the near future. - Jim Kruzitski

This campground was fine. Not great, but also not bad.
Great location on the Root River walking distance from downtown Lanesboro. Bike path also runs right along the edge of the campground. There are tubing and kayak rentals on site. No mosquitos, even though there had been quite a bit of rain. There is a nice playground area for kids.
Sites were long and narrow. Grassy part was well maintained. On our visit, the campground was not full so we had plenty of room between us and our "neighbors". I imagine that it would be quite tight if the campground got filled up.
THE NOT SO GREAT: You could not easily see the river from the sites even though we had a "river side site". Vegetation is thick. There were a few paths down a steep bank to get to the river, but nothing you would want to send your children to check out unattended. The bathrooms are basic campground bathrooms. Pay showers-bring quarters! (.50 for 5 minutes, 20 seconds of water), It did seemed to be cleaned out each day. There are a lot of people who camp here with big rigs so the bathrooms, for us and tenters, were not very busy at all which was nice.
The Owner, John (I believe he is the owner, or at least the guy that runs the place) is very "hand's off" You won't have to worry about him talking your ear off for sure. In fact you might find yourself looking for him or longing for more information like "Where do I check in?, When should I pay you?, Where should I pay you?, What spot can I take for a campsite?" I made our reservations in March for our June trip and all he took was my name, no phone number, or credit card, nor did he assign a specific site at that time. Very casual. For some people this might be good, but for me I'd prefer assurance that I was going to get a site!
Overall, I felt this place lacked charm, even the name! -Nothing was terrible. - Camping-with-Kids

This long and narrow park follows the banks of the Root River. The campsites are laid out along the river and in the center between the driveways. Signage is nearly non-existant consisting of a little sign on the mailbox opposite the entrance of the park. Google navigation takes you to the center of town: right highway but wrong location. Just head north and follow Highway 250 over a narrow bridge and take the first driveway to the right. They have one good size office/bathroom building with bathrooms that are clean. Showers are $.50 for 5 minutes. The grassy campsites are laid out along the river and in the center between the park's gravel roads with the permanent sites beginning after the park office. I did not see sites with sewer for short term guests. Many sites (particularly along the river) offer shade but you may need quite a bit of hose and electric wire to make use of it. There is more than adequate room between units for slide outs and awnings. Units can be placed anywhere on the grass lots. The lots are generally near level but uneven so RV's need to be placed carefully to be level. Firewood is available. Tubes, kayaks and canoes can apparently be rented (though I am not sure how.) The proprietor lives on the second level of the restroom building. There is no sign for the office so I had to ask to find out where to check in. The proprietor didn't remember my calling, but told me to pick a site. He wrote nothing down so probably doesn't remember who I am. We have been here for two nights so I still don't know how I check out, etc. He was nice enough but I am baffled by how laid back this all is. The proprietor is the only employee I have seen, but everything seems to work and the place is in decent repair so I guess it is working. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. Sites along the river are back in but it looks like the sites in the center could be pull through. The Highway 250 campground is located in a rural setting at a distance from highways (rural with minimal traffic), etc., so it is generally quiet. Seasonally, if you are near the river you will hear tubers going by on the river. I understand that the campground can be crowded on weekends so noise from other campers might be an issue but during our July midweek stay it has been wonderfully peaceful. This campground is located between the gorgeous paved Root River Bike Trail which provides easy access to the delightful town of Lanesboro and the Root River. In addition to the great restaurants, shops and biking and river outfitters, Lanesboro is home to the wonderful Commonweal Theatre which offers professional theatre for much of the year. We would definitely stay here again. - StillBill

Sylvan Park Campground is part of River View Campground. River view is directly across the street from Sylvan. At River View, there are no restrooms, and only 2 portapotty's in poor condition. The road into Sylvan is torn up to replace a sewage line into the elementary school which shares the same parking lot as Sylvan's campground and city park. Neither campground had a host, and we were in desperate need to assistance when on the first night camped there, a major tree limb fell on our 5th wheel. The old restroom at the Sylvan Park was poorly kept and unclean. No showers. - mitig8er

This park is in town and close to everything the town offers. They do not take reservations and they fill up fast on weekends. During the week the bathrooms are kept acceptably clean, but on weekends it doesn't appear that they are maintained; sinks and countertops were dirty. Will stay here again for the convenience. - Camping Luvr

We found this to be a very nice campground. Only about 1 block from the heart of the downtown district, so we walked or biked to our activities. The campground is part of a city park. The main campground road was paved, the sites are gravel and most seemed to be level. It was quiet and friendly. No reservations taken, first come first serve. Restrooms were not as modern or clean as we would have liked, although the 2nd set of restrooms/showers at the community center were much cleaner and more modern; they are located at the park entrance. Farmers market at the park on Saturday, and several Amish vendors all day Fri/Sat, so we had lots of fresh veggies and bakery items. We would stay here again. - skate

Sites are very tight, our 32' camper barely fit and was hard to back in. Otherwise this state park is really nice and rustic. Beautiful stream with huge trout that I could see with my eyes. Nice hiking trails along stream. Dump station available. - Bjb1775
Jun 2017 - $35.00
Very small sites, no privacy, sites are close to each other, we could see(and hear) campers 7-8 sites away. We barely had room to back our 21' travel trailer and Ford F-150 into the site. Back half of site was not level and was very wet, like camping in a swamp. - Lakekab

A rustic campground accessed by driving through (REALLY!) a trout stream. Vegetation screens most of electric sites from each other; hillsides and/or intermittent water are behind all sites so very private in that direction. Variety of hiking trails (flat and steep) are accessed from campground road. Park is in midst of hills and valleys. Coldwater stream environment means virtually no mosquitoes, but gnats, yes. No cellphone reception in park. Birding and kids discovery kits available for free from park office. Probably great birding in Spring. Picnic and playground area is down the road from the campground, making it quieter at the campground. On printed and online campsite maps, tick marks on map are not indicative of pad length; ask park office for this info. Park brochure cites potential for flash flooding after heavy rain. It rained 3 inches when we were there; water and debris on road in low spots, but not a big problem. - Susi Nehls

We came here because it was listed in the coast To coast magazine as one of their best resorts. Not sure how it received that distinction. To get to park you must drive a twisting and turning dirt road. There isn't any phone service, antenna TV is impossible, satellite TV is a maybe and their WIFI doesn't work. They advertise a pool and hot tub, the hot was closed our entire visit and the pool was shut down one day too. When we asked about the the hot tub and pool being closed we were treated very rudely by Judy who was in the office. They had just reopened from a flood where people had to be evacuated. There is a work camper that does rounds on his bicycle, while speaking with him, the flooding is a common occurrence anytime it rains. For this reason we will not stay again. The trees are pretty overgrown on the shade sites, I had to keep ducking under then while tending my fire pit. - Travelgypsy

We've stayed at this campground many times, and each time is just as enjoyable as the last. Our site was level and spacious with full hook-ups. Cell phone reception is difficult at best, and their Wi-Fi is improving. We will stay here again, for sure. - JBu

Great utilities, 50 amp power was good, water and sewer was good, satellite was good but some sites on the south side of the park may have trouble with tree blockage. Flat terrain, walking good. All gravel roads including 1.3 mile road to park. Very busy on weekends but only 1/3 filled during the week. Good outdoor pool, super friendly staff, recycling bins available near office. We paid zero dollars using our Resorts of Distinction membership. This was our first time here but we will DEFINITELY be coming back many times in the future. - lajuene

Large campground with plenty of spots for over night camping. Sites are large and grassy. Campground is tiered. The lower part appears to be newer with smaller trees. Bar and restaurant on site. Friendly staff. The only drawback I found was they have pay showers. - Juniper94

Beautiful, clean, quiet location on the Root River Bike Trail. Park has a covered pool which can be closed in during cooler weather. Very nice pub with good food. Convenient to Preston and Lanesboro. Golf. Hostel style accommodations for overflow. Very nice park with friendly staff all the way around. - Todd Fogelberg
Sep 2018 - $35.00
We attended a rally. Very nice restaurant on site. A bit dusty and the entrance road was a mess. The last 100 feet were very narrow and no way could two vehicles traveling in opposite directions make it through. Cell reception is poor or non existent for ATT. Verizon was better. No WiFi except at the Barn. OTA TV channels were hard to come by too. - Karen Fredrickson
Oct 2005 - $15.00
No hookups. New, clean restrooms/showers. Nice trails & look out sites. Very nice fall colors in October. Requires $7/day or $25/year vehicle permit. Off the beaten path for very quiet private camping. Folage shielded sites for privacy. - dakotaken

This was a repeat stay for me to celebrate the 4th of July and reconnect will dear friends. I love this place!! It feels like home and everyone like family. Spent 6 years on a permanent site myself at another campground. I never felt welcomed like I do here. The pool was sparkling clean and very refreshing after a hot, humid day. The restrooms and laundry were also clean, organized and comfortable. I'll be back next year!!! - Waff

We have stayed here many times over the past 4 years. I was shocked at the recent review that gave them 1 star. Granted in May when the leaves on the trees have not yet come in, the train is a little loud on the one end of the campground, but it isn't that bad. Bathrooms are by far the cleanest ones I have been in. The pool is always clean and they are very attentive to cleanliness. There is one porta-potty by the large cabin that is cleaner than most peoples bathroom at home. Great seasonal and super nice owners. Small, clean and family orientated campground. - Robyn M H

Very friendly campground owners/ hosts. Nice older campground with tight spaces and lots of trees. Tough to get satellite to work but I did find a spot to make it happen. Sites are mainly parking on the grass but easy to navigate and utilities are placed right. Has playground for the kids. They do many park activities like Bingo etc. Small store and friendly people. Would stay again if in the area. - Johnny xxxxx
