The web site makes this campground look very inviting, but BEWARE! The road down into the camp is rutted and difficult. The sites are not marked out, you are not assigned a spot and it is first come first serve. People set up wherever they find space. Though our site was OK, we ended up with not one, but two tents plopped in the middle of our site and our fire ring full of cardboard garbage when we came back from a day trip. This left us no place to park our truck on the site. Being boxed in forced us to wait for them to pack up and leave Sunday afternoon before we could get our camper out. The firewood we had purchased was stolen from our site during the night. Quiet time was non-existent, as the camp was loud with drunken partiers until well after 3 AM. The bathrooms were totally filthy, no TP, and not cleaned throughout our 3 day stay. We were very disappointed and consider this the worst campground we have ever stayed at. We camped at Hidden Valley Campground in a Tent Trailer.

I would recommend this campground. The owners were very helpful and pleasant. They had lots of local information for entertainment and shopping. We were able to choose our own campsite which made it very nice. We have a son who really enjoyed the other children to play with. We felt safe letting our son play at this campground. Our area was clean as well as the entire campground. They provided a garbage drop site which was convenient. I loved the fact they provided us with tubes for a small fee, to ride down the river where we ended at the campground. That was very easy and safe for my son. We will continue to camp at this park in the future. We camped at Hidden Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hidden Valley Campground in Welch, Minnesota is located between two wonderful resources: The Canon Valley Bike Trail, and the Canon River. Unfortunately, this campground is one for families to avoid! The web site promises a tranquil stay in a picturesque setting, however the proof is in reality. Despite the 10 mph rule, there was much exhibition driving. The 11 pm quiet hour was largely ignored by the many drunk guests. There was an unleashed dog wandering around in the women's bathroom. I heard chain saws being used to presumably cut firewood, and heard fireworks being shot after quiet hours. All this despite "rules" against such activities. "Amenities" are sparse electrical hookups taken up by permanent campers, water from the bathroom sink, a playground of dilapidated equipment, and bathrooms which were poorly maintained and just plain disgusting! Between the ceaseless noise of boom-boxes blaring, the cursing, screaming, and gnashing of teeth till all hours of the night, and the filth and stench of the bathrooms, you will feel like you were literally transported to the bowels of hell!

Beautiful campground with large sites and located 1 mile from a tubing/canoeing facility and the Cannon Valley bike path. . . . BUT sites are hard to back into due to trees, many sites are not level. First come, first serve and no direction on how to get into spots. Gravel roads, which is not unusual, but high amount of traffic from seasonals going in and out makes for lots of dust. The bathrooms were awful, filthy, with no paper towels, spiders everywhere. Quiet hours are at 11:00 p.m., but not observed. Party in the campground lasted until 2 or 3:00 a.m. Dogs not leashed. Takes only cash or checks. Trash dumpster was a distance away and FULL. The playground was quite nice. I think owner is trying to fix things up, but he has a long way to go.
