This park needs some serious work. Spaces designated for RVs are fairly haphazard. We plugged into an electric box that already had at least one RV plugged in with other cords coming out besides. Spaces very close to each other with very little room for parking a vehicle. Woke up every morning at 5:30 a.m. to the neighbor talking loudly/yelling to her (five--yes, FIVE!!) pitbulls while allowing them to relieve themselves behind our motor home and never once cleaning up after them. Bathrooms were scary--not private at all. Shower curtains hide the stalls with no doors on the bathrooms themselves. My husband went in the first morning to find the stalls in the men's bathroom covered in vomit. Park itself is in the great neighborhood of St. Anthony but inside the park is a different story. Very run down. Manager nice and does what he can but owners should hire more help! A few rules regarding age of units and pet restrictions would clean up this park in a hurry. Ridiculously overpriced considering we couldn't use the facilities at all. We only used the park for sleeping--didn't use bathrooms, laundry, etc. - desertrat74

Approximately 60% of the spaces are fulltime, low income residents. Though the majority are nice people, there are a few unsavory characters. The manager is a "Jack of all trades". He is a wonderful, caring person...but stretched between this and 2 other sites. Access to the site was acceptable. the original site they put us in did not allow us to extend our awning as we were literally 4 feet from campers on either side. We moved to another site, that allowed use of the awning and was approximately 20' from the unit next store.
We chose this facility because of its proximity to downtown Minneapolis and the fact that the public transportation stopped right outside the park. (We do not tow, so access to public transportation in an urban environment is a real plus. That and reliable, accessible power and water were the only positives! - Ncw

Many permanents, which creates noise in the AM when they leave for work. Some units have a bit of junk around them. The park office closes mid-afternoon and after that the manager must be called. He apparently has another full-time job but is very helpful and cooperative. Utilities were good. This is not a destination resort but should serve very well for a day or week or more. This is a very urban setting for a park but it is close to the center of town. We felt quite safe here and would definitely stay here again because of it's central location. - gene a

Nice Municipal Park. Quiet, among the trees. We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower, plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site. So our critique is focused in that area. Best part of this campground was the large roomy tree shaded sites and the vegetation green space between each one giving you plenty of privacy. Each had picnic table on cement pad and a fire ring with gravel pad for your RV, plus ample room for tents on the grass. Our site 11 was close to restroom/shower/laundry building although laundry was closed due to vandalism. Relatively new cement block building with typical public municipality layout. Shower stalls were roomy with cement bench on each end, but only had 1 wall hook above the bench to hang clothes or towels, had to lay other items on the bench. Same for communal sink area, only an air dryer provided but no wall hooks, shelving, or paper towel to clean up after use. As result sinks were constantly messy and dirty even though maintenance cleaned them in early morning. No air movement or ventilation inside of building and after a shower it became extremely stuffy (see my photos). A small playground is adjacent to the restroom/shower building. All roadways and site pads are compacted gravel - and in walking distance to the lake for water activities. Bring mosquito /bug spray - lots of those pesky critters in the park. - dido

Nice County Park with all the amenities. Great place for kids. Big sites fairly secluded. Easy drive into the cities. - GOTTOYS

This is a great park. Gravel sites, picnic tables, fire pits and grills. Sites are large and semi private. They have back in and pull thrus. Great for biking and walking. Big rigs are not a problem. - gmbmailbox

In addition to the nightly rate, there is an $8 reservation fee, and you will need a vehicle permit ($5 daily or $25 annually). The nice thing about the annual permit is it's good at all Anoka county, Washington county and Carver county parks. When you choose your site on the online reservation system you are able to view an image of the site. We had a great site, large and grassy, but there are a lot of sites that are narrow or mostly dirt. The sites are mostly private with lots of trees and bushes in between them. There are a few sites grouped together that would be good for a group of up to four units plus an additional tent on each site, however, it appeared to be a long walk to the restroom from those sites. There are a lot of trails and a nice playground. - Juniper94

This is a real gem of a park less than 30 minutes north of the Twin Cities. The sites are among the most generously spaced we've encountered, with lots of trees and foliage between. There are also some sites that are grouped together with less foliage between, suitable for a group with 2, 3 or 4 RVs. Most sites have water and electricity, and a large picnic table and fire pit were in all the sites. We felt that the price/night was very reasonable compared to campgrounds with similar amenities (power/water), and we saw many sites that would be big rig friendly (we were in a 32' TT).
Surrounding the park is a nice system of trails (both paved and mowed grass) for hiking and biking. The city of Coon Rapids is very close by (5 minute drive) if you need a store or other such amenities. Bunker Hills Regional Park (which houses the campground) also features houses riding stables, a disc golf course, a regular golf course, an archery range, and Bunker Beach water park. The park was quiet and well maintained and we enjoyed it so much that we have already booked to return here in a few weeks.
Of note, you do have to purchase either a day or annual park pass for Anoka County ($5/day or $25/year) in addition to your camp site fee, but we have found this to be common with state and county parks. - Canadian in Minnesota

Very nice, quiet campground. Lots of shade. Very friendly attendants. Stayed one night. Would definitely stay again. Very concurrent to Minneapolis and St Paul. - SCFKansas

We really liked our campsite across from the donkeys, llamas, goats and peacock! We had plenty of room on this end site and no problem to get satellite reception. Other campsites appeared a bit haphazard in arrangement and some were crammed together. There were also some nice sites surrounding Ham Lake. The entrance in is long, wooded and very narrow with a couple turnouts if two RV's meet. (Seems a tree or two could be removed) We were both a little concerned about where we were headed and were pleasantly surprised at the campground. While some of the signs and picnic tables could use some sprucing up, everything was clean and well kept up. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have mowed walking areas through the woods and fields and a small playground for the kids. We did not use the dump station, it appeared to be difficult to get to and would block vehicles when using it. It is NOT a resort but a very comfortable, older style, friendly mom and pop type operation. They were recently bought out by a resort operation so things may be modernized a bit. - NanciRV

This park is old and new. Full hook up, 50 amp sites in the office area are filthy, overgrown and in the trees. Lots of shade but very hard to back in to some. Three to four rigs need to hook up to same water outlet. Wifi non-existent at our site. Great at office. Rest room and shower are old, calcified fixtures, and in need of total remodel. - Rsunde

Competent and friendly office staff.
Poor roads-don't have a clue of how to maintain.
Many sites not level- there is no excuse in this day of slideouts. Some power posts and sewer connections poorly located.
Could use some updates which I understand they will be doing. - Nick2

We were gone from the site most of the time. The park is drop dead gorgeous. Ample spacing between sites. If you can handle moving your fireplace wood in a wheel barrow that would be good (they don't appear to deliver to your site). You can fill your water tank with potable water at the pump out area. - Cory S

This is one of the few RV parks on the east side of Minneapolis/St. Paul and it is convenient to the Minnesota State Capitol Museum and other museums. Sites are wide, long, unlevel and expensive ($7 more a day for the toad without an Iowa State Parks pass). While we were there our site (14) and two other sites had reoccurring low voltage on one phase of the electric service. (It was hot, in the 90's but the CG was less than 30% occupied when we were there.) The park is large and lovely; Verizon service was good and there were some OTA television channels but we will not stay there again. - Mom_of_Two

The park itself is fine. The problem with it is they do not allow pets in the campground. There are dogs walking along the trails but I was not suppose to have my cat inside my RV. I constantly this unacceptable and will not return. - Smokinghawk49

Check-in went well. After separating the toad from the MH we were guided to our site. I received directions to Costco from the lady at the desk after setting up on the site. Our site had electric and water but no sewer hookup. Unfortunately, the RV park is being sold to be replaced by condominiums. - Toby's dad

This is a very old KOA park with a name changed and it is closing soon to be developed into condo's. The owners are very rude and demanding. They claim to be big rig friendly, but the only long sites they have do not have sewer. All other sites require you disconnect you toad as the sites are too short and sewer connection is in the wrong place. Wifi is only available in the office. We wish we hadn't stayed, but had already paid. Read the rest of the reviews and don't stay here. - Jersey1580

Big rig friendly with level sites. Laundry and showers were good. Wifi was only available at the office/shower building but was very fast. No dog park but large grassy field that was great for walking dog. Too bad this great campground is closing at the end of the season. - Fulltimersrv

So here is the thing...it was a few days before the 4th of July weekend and we needed a place to park the rig and set up a tent that was near St. Paul and East Bethel. After searching EVERYWHERE for the telephone number for this place, we gave up and decided to drive up. There was a number on a sign at the entrance (I will try to get this from my buddy and post later) which we used to call the owner. The owner was an older lady who came right out from down the road in a Kabota type vehicle and was very nice. The park was by a huge lake with what seemed to be 100 plus trailers and motorhomes...most definitely looked permanent to semi permanent and some looked to be there for the weekend. The only spots they had available were in a grassy area with no facilities whatsoever other than water faucets were could walk to and a pit toilet within reasonable walking distance. The cost of 35 per night seemed very unreasonable with no hookups and we felt we were taken somewhat advantage of since no other campers stayed in our area for the entire weekend. We also had to move tree limbs manually each day to enter and exit our area. The owner lady was very hard working and we were grateful to have the spot after all was said and done. - CaliDiscGolf

This KOA was very nice. They had the standard KOA type amenities with a playground, pool, and mini golf. The sites were nice, spacious, and plenty of green. - Angie B

Nice park. Our site (electric & water) sloped from rear to front, but did not prevent leveling. We needed an outside step for comfortable access to the door. Park was well kept. We would have preferred a full hookup site, but not many available. Overall, a nice park; not many options in the area. - LeslieGary

There are very few campgrounds providing access to the Twin Cities. (The maps and receipts list this as in Maple Grove, not Rogers.) This was a fine park, quite busy, but nice sites. - TexPaul

The only reason we didn't give it a 10 is because the road coming in is difficult if there is another camper coming the opposite way. We booked 5 nights, but our site #39 blocked our satellite. The hosts were very helpful in locating us to another site for the remaining 4 nights. The park is well maintained, grassy spots to walk the dog, good wifi reception, especially closer to the office. Our first site had our picnic table at the back, which we weren't crazy about. The next site, it was next to us. There is a spot for hooking and unhooking when you first come in. We had FHU, but there is a dump site. They have great recycling bins, giving you bags to do so, even so far as composting, which we were happy about. Level spots on hard packed gravel and quiet. - dorcol

Price does not include the reservation fee of $8.50 plus any taxes and fees. Asked for 2 days and was told I would have to move for the second day, no problem, right? The reservation was added to the second day fees because it was a different site. It had to be a separate reservation so extra fees. This park does not honor any discounts including Military as per the county commissioners. Very disappointed with the policies regarding reservations and any discounts. The office staff were unable or empowered to use common sense in the running of the park. - boomerlee

Probably the nicest municipal campground in which I've ever stayed. It's in the suburbs of the Twin Cities, but as soon as you enter the park you feel like you're in the woods. We spent 6 nights in back-in site #27. There are a few pull-through sites, but the back-in sites are nicer. Check-in was easy, but you do have to wind your way through the park to get to the office. Campground hosts are polite but sticklers for rules. Roads are paved and navigable, but the roundabout near the entrance is awkward, and the two-way entrance road is a bit windy and narrow for big rigs. If you are towing 4 down, recommend not trying to arrive early - if you meet a departing rig on the entrance road you may not be able to get by. Sites are gravel and level. Fire rings are at the rear of the site, but well away from the neighboring rig. Plenty of grass everywhere for the dogs, but no enclosed dog park. Hookups were convenient, sewer was threaded, and water quality and pressure were good. Although there are trees, we were able to get all three western arc Dish satellites with our rooftop antenna. Verizon signal was good. Our OTA antenna found 30+ stations in HD. WiFI is excellent. Other reviewers have mentioned mosquitos, but I didn't find them bad at all. Very convenient to reach the city, and bike trails are everywhere in the area. Very nice municipal golf course less than 2 miles away. All in all, the layout and the setting was awesome. We loved this campground and look forward to returning. It is popular, so reservations are highly recommended. - mtmsf

The campground was wonderful. Private and heavily wooded. A few of the sites are a bit hilly and difficult to back into with a long motorhome but doable. Seems that the Savanna side seems newer and sites are a bit more spaced apart than the Riverside camping area. Fabulous campground but the showers are in serious need of ventilation, painting and deep cleaning- preferably with bleach! Black mold and looks like green algae growing on the walls in the showers. - NanciRV

We love this place. Camp there every year. Lake Alice is a great place to swim and the trails are just perfect for new bikers. You can feed the sunnies in the swim area too and our grandkids love that. - Mobes

We stayed for one night in mid-April, a very early start with the early warm weather this spring. Because the trees have not yet leafed out, the park seemed sparse and there was little to no privacy between the sites. It would be better once the leaves come out. Even so, the sites in the Riverway Campground (the one close to the St. Croix river) were all quite close together. Our site was very level and most of the sites looked fairly level. The pit toilets were open and were adequate, but water was not yet on and the plumbed facilities were not open at all - nor was the dumping station so beware if you camp before they open or after they close for the season (and use the pit toilets unless you know where to find a dump station). The proximity to the river was very nice, although it was not much visible from the camp sites. There is a nice but very flat walk path along the river. Great for kids or anyone with limited mobility (not paved for wheelchairs).It is mostly around wetlands and open prairie land so easy/flat but some of the trails are a bit more hilly. The views there are lovely but not awe-inspiring. You will see some beavers' lodges. In that area there is also a lake with a large swimming beach and a large fishing pier. There is ample group camping and group picnic areas so it's very flexible space and useful for any kind of group (suggest checking on reservations). MN is going to all reservations for campsites as of 2016 so don't count on any walk-in sites being available - always reserve online or call ahead for last-minute visits. - MNroadie
