We camped here on a Thursday in Aug. 2009. On the positive side this place is very quiet with lots of shade and the sites are spaced nicely apart. There are a lot of trails to hike, too. On the negative side there is only 2 spots to get water and most sites were not level. It is also quite a distance to the lake. We could not get Verizon cell service or satellite TV. - portecmp

Based on a prior review here, we spent a lovely Saturday afternoon, night, and Sunday morning at Nugget Lake. First, all of the sites are lovely but only 5 of them are level enough to suitable for a motorhome larger than 34 feet. The other sites are great for a pop-up, trailer, or 5th wheel. Some of the better motorhome-capable sites are 2, 25, and 51. Sites 45 & 47 are excellent also if you don't need electricity. The lake is nice but it is a long walk, with a steep hill, from the campground. The park does have quite a bit of nice hiking in various difficulty levels. On Friday & Saturday nights between Labor Day and Memorial Day there are movies or other activities at the amphitheater. Facilities near site #50 are excellent; some of the nicest I've seen. Those near #34 are typical vault toilets. Very limited cell phone service (less than 1 bar) on Sprint & ATT - none on TMobile. Sites are cut into the forest so you'll have good trees for shade. Satellite reception might be marginal though. All sites have picnic tables and fire pits - some are multi-level (like #19). Sites can be reserved starting Jan 1st of each year. We went on a Saturday in early October and had no problem getting a nice site without reservations. I understand they are usually full during the summer months and, after being there, I understand why! Our family voted Nugget Lake is a keeper; we will likely return for another short weekend again. - AndersonFamily

Great county park! The sites were very shaded, very private. Lots of trees and greenery. Playground area for kids. In a county park, so there are hiking trails for all levels, fishing, picnic areas. Was quiet all weekend long, even though the campground was full. We would stay again. - cobragt23

Well maintained park. Restrooms were newer and clean. Only about 25 sites with electric. 20/30 amp. More tent camping. Water spicket on each loop. Lots deep, but tricky to maneuver into. Almost all pads were sloped from side to side. Scenic. - Mike from Bama

Frontenac is one of the smaller state parks, built in the late 1950s. Go for the trail system, the views of Lake Pepin, the fall foliage, or recreation opportunities in surrounding cities. Sites are smaller and nearly all back-in, marginally suitable for large rigs. Restrooms and showers, though working, are badly in need of updating. Like other reviewers we had problems with the dryness of the firewood, which was exorbitantly priced at $6 for a small bundle. All sites are now reservable. The electric sites fill up on weekends. - Jammer

We pulled in on a Friday late morning and got a lovely non-reservable site in the first loop. Site itself was large, with a fire pit and solid table. Slight slope down to the road which I could accommodate with a 3" board under each front wheel on the motorhome. Good electricity (121 volts) and solid Verizon 4G coverage, and about 15 digital TV stations detected. Campground is well patrolled and there was no trouble of any kind while we were there. Lots of kids on bikes having a great time racing around (we think of them as a floor show). Some fine hiking too along the ridge of the bluffs, finding several points of interest, finding geocaches left in the neighborhood, and attending a most interesting naturalist hike were among the available activities. Only down side - Ranger station sells wood for $6/bundle (which is expensive for the area) and, when I got it to the site, I found it was not totally dry - rather the fire struggled to stay alive and was hissing/sputtering until it really hot and the moisture was driven off. We hooked up the toad in the ranger station parking lot. They were nice about that and you have a lot more space than trying to do that in the campground. We had a great long weekend at Frontenac State Park. I'd need to recommend it to others. - AndersonFamily

Camping sites in small city park overlooking Lake Pepin/Mississippi River. Don't stay here if you don't like trains - there is a double track right next to park and lots of freight trains! One block from main highway. A few shops and restaurants in town. Electrical hookup only. On a Monday evening in October, we were 1 of 3 people in campground. Very pretty view of lake/river, sunset, boats. This campground is very busy in summer, first come first served. Gravel/Grass sites. Fire ring and picnic table. - Sparky6238

Park has 10 RV sites with electric and water. There also is a dump station. Tent sites also are available. The City pool is located in this Park and charges a nominal fee to use. - anmsw

We spent 4 days here. We stayed here because it was the end of the Chippewa River Bike Trail which also meets the Cedar River trail so it was a good place to do so. Campsites are close together and are all back in, but lots of room to do so. Check out the historical museum and see the original court rooms. Read about the gunfight in 1881 and learn about the paddle wheels on the Chippewa. Unless you are just traveling through or intent on biking, this might not be the place for you. - stetwood

We had pretty good view of Lake Pepin from our space, not all spots have this so we were happy for that. Some long term units have killed the grass with rugs, which is too bad for the next renter. Location was good for us and I'd stay again. - brovst

New perk this year... fantastic wi-fi right at the site! Excellent speeeds, no interruptions all day long. Cash only park. Sites vary. Some near the front (near Hwy 61) are very spacious. Some of the sites are sloped a bit - not level front to back. Sites can be a bit noisy with the road. However, we love this park as it is basically right in town. There are views and easy access to Lake Pepin right across the street. Many restaurants and a butcher shop within walking distance. We will stay again. - bradfeldt

Not a lot of choice in town, so this was pretty much it. Cash only at the park. Our site was right next to Hwy 61 across the road from the Lake House Restaurant and Lake Pepin, just a short walk to town. Lake City itself is a very nice town. The campground amenities were sparse with campsites very close together. However, it served our purposes and we would stay here again. - bradfeldt

Stayed here in early October when the leaves were changing and it was beautiful. The park itself is about 4 blocks off of the Mississippi River and is just a short walk or ride away. As previous people have noted it is mainly all seasonal campers with a few spots for overnighters. Most the sites are full hookup sites. When you register you need to stop by the hotel that is just down the hill from the campground entrance. There is a train that goes though pretty regularly and sounds its horn each time. Seems as though it did not go through at night when we were there. The train is down by the river so it is about 4 blocks away. Pepin is a nice town with a few things to see and do. There is a playground that is across from the campground and behind the hotel. - PackerFanRick

We camped here for a month so the rate shown is the monthly. First, this is a campground populated almost entirely by seasonal campers. So most sites have a tow behind or 5th wheel parked on it. There are only a handful of free sites. Weekdays there are virtually no seasonals around. They arrive on the weekend, mow their site grass, put in decks or sheds, and have a good time. Nice folks but they all locals, so full timers like us are the odd man out. Regardless, Pepin and the surrounding towns are great. Lots to do and great food. Check out the Harbor View Cafe. Super. Verizon 3G (and sometimes 4G) service good but spotty. Never was able to connect with the campground WiFi. - zulu

This is a nice park on the edge of town. The interior roads and sites are gravel, sites are large and pretty level with lots of grass between. The older section has large mature shade trees, the newer section has lots of trees, but not yet large enough for shade. The restrooms/showers are modern, spacious and fairly clean. The Wi-Fi signal was very weak, but was able to connect. It appears that the vast majority of the sites are seasonal and they do not have alot of overnight spots, so i would recommend calling ahead. Everyone was very friendly, quiet and close to good restaurants. We would stay here again. - skate

This COE campground appears to be older and needs some upgrades. Most of the sites are uneven and sloped which makes leveling a challenge. The heavily wooded campground is 10 miles from the Eau de Galle reservoir day use area. The day use area is really nice, open and well kept and it would have been great if the campground was located in that area. The dump station is a large hole with no receptacle to adapt to your sewer hose. This is a weekend family campground where kids can play in the woods and enjoy a campsite fire but it would be a nicer place if some much needed maintenance was done. - Budmobile

We stayed in a 40' Class A, site 38 in the North loop. Rate reflects 50% discount. Overall very nice, typical COE heavily wooded park, but campsites are not near water. Some of it's pretty tight; know how to drive if you have a big rig. Roads in were easy. About half the sites are pretty level and half on a slope, as the cg is built on a ridge. If you have a long rig, check when making a reservation. Very quiet, busy on weekend but almost empty during the week. Facilities acceptably clean. Showers use button, but no coins needed. Inexpensive firewood right outside park. Good cellular data with Verizon, acceptable with AT&T and T-Mobile. 20+ TV channels from Twin Cities. Most fireflies I have ever seen. Recommended. - Gannet

We camped in the overflow equestrian site, which is a wide open field. There are fire grates and 2 portable toilets. The toilets were very old, broken, filthy and overfilled. The main campground seemed very nice but our experience was not. - gilb488

We found this on Good Sam, otherwise didn't know it even existed. Had a nice stay with quite a few things in the area to see. Lots fit our 45' motorhome and vehicle well. Area was mowed but appeared to have never been trimmed around edges, under trees & shrubs or around RV hook-up areas. You have to get used to the numerous trains passing by a few blocks over all day and night. Because of family in the area we will be back. - CJWagner

This is a very nice park with great views of the bluffs. The sites are well maintained with plenty of personal space (no fencing, just open) around. - if you have a motorcycle or bicycle, this is an ideal basecamp.
We're a traveling couple with home bases in MN and SoCal and have experienced many different parks.
A few items to note:
- Trash is picked up daily, just leave at the front of your site in the morning.
- The office is a cross highway 35 in the Nelson Creamery. While your there, you should expect to spend some time sitting on the porch for some cheese, meats, wine and beer!
- Our only negative comment is the train tracks are very close to the site. They run about every 45 mins to an hour starting around 9pm. They blow their horns when running through the town and there isn't much to baffle the noise between the park and the tracks.
- Not every site has a picnic table.
- Our site (#2) was mostly level.
We would definitely stay here again in spite of the trains. - Rosenriddle
Jul 2016 - $18.00
We loved this area and we loved this park. It's like camping in a big meadow underneath the scenic bluffs. The bathhouse is clean and the laundry has new high capacity machines that don't mangle your clothes. There's not an office on site so you check in at Nelson's Creamery across the street. Manager lady was wonderful and responded quickly to any questions we had. I noticed that one reviewer noted there are no trash receptacles and that's because you just place your trash outside and they pick it up. The only downside is the noise of the frequent trains, but after a few days we didn't notice them anymore. It's a puzzle to me why this place isn't filled to capacity all the time. The rate we paid reflects the monthly rate.
Note: Don't follow your GPS. Coming from Wabasha, turn right at the second street after the railroad tracks. Coming from Pepin, turn left at Top Hat Bar. - Wind blows

Camping on the river with Red Wing, MN across the river. Marina is on the river so when it floods everyone has to move out. Kind of tight with some low branches, but we fit 40 plus feet in. Good food at bar near entrance. - what next

Rv park connected with casino.. A little different configuration with blacktop and gravel. Only friendly person I have found do on this entire reservation was the gentleman that checked us in. Bring lots of cash, the slots are tight. - Butcherboy13
May 2015 - $30.00
This was our worst campground and camping experience. Very few shaded lots as per website photos. We were on a waterfront site, all rocks, poor site, unlevel, muddy and nasty with train across the river as well as a foundry with industrial noise and lights. There is a convenient restaurant/bar outside the gate, decent food at reasonable prices. However, unless you are truly part of the River Rat culture stay anywhere else! - Beth1
