Just wanted to do a brief mini-review on this campground, as we just got back a couple hours ago from a weekend there (our first time). There are three loops in this campground: The South loop is what I would call the 'main' loop. This is essentially an RV park, where huge RVs were crammed in nearly as close as a Wal-Mart parking lot. There didn't appear to be much tree cover here at all, it seemed very oopen. This was the only loop in the park that had full hookups, so if you demand that, that's where you'll be. The campground office and 'store' are here. This loop also supposedly offered Wi-Fi. The 'North' loop is the 'primitive' loop with no hookups, and is just off the main loop. This is basically set up for tent camping, with long, narrow sites carved into a heavily wooded area. Depending on your site, you might have a moderately long hike to the bathrooms, and some of them were just porta-johns. The sites did have a very primitive, woodsy feel which we liked. You might possibly be able to pick up Wi-Fi from the South loop here but I didn't test that. The 'East' loop is a completely separate loop not quite a quarter mile east of the other two loops, up a somewhat steep hill. I don't know the history of this campground but I would not be surprised if this loop was added at some later point in the park's history. This loop has a ring of sites around a central bath house and playground area. It offers 30A electrical service at every site, but no other hookups or Wi-fi. Ordinarily I would choose to save the few bucks a night and go completely off the grid, but looking at the satellite pics of the sites, it just seemed that the East loop was much better laid out, so we chose a site there. This was a very good decision, and I would HIGHLY recommend people choose this loop if possible... it's basically designed for popups, HTTs, and other small travel trailers, although we saw quite a few tents there too. Although there wasn't water hook-ups, there were numerous water fill points around the loop. One was right across from our site, so we simply pulled up,l filled the tank, and backed in upon arrival. Although virtually every site around us was filled, these sites were highly private... We really could only see one other trailer or tent from our site, due to trees, brush, and site design. Basically the whole loop had a "I'm up in the north woods camping" feel to it, even though it's smack in the middle of a bustling suburb minutes from the Mall of America. As noted, the bath house building was in the middle of the loop, and numerous wooded paths made it a convenient short walk from any site. Due to the wooded nature, you couldn't see this building from any site, again lending to the feeling of boondocking. There was also a decent sized playground right next to the bath house building and was popular with kids including ours. Depending on your site, you were either quite wooded, or quite open (and surrounded by brush... ours had raspberry bushes among other things, complete with ripe berries). Some sites backed into an open area near the playground where you could have set up lawn games, etc. Ours did not, and was too small for some yard games, although we did squeeze in an area to alternately play cornhole and ladder golf, and went to the bath house area to play bocce. One of this park's strengths is also a weakness... it's huge, supposedly 2000 acres. This means you're not going to just walk to the different sections of the park. At various places it offers mountain biking trails, swimming beaches, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and much, much more, but a lot of that is a several-mile drive away. There are plenty of hiking paths, but other than the mountain biking area (which was closed due to the unusually wet summer we're having) this park is not set up for biking at all. We tried a few hiking trails but they were kind of miserable with the mud and mosquitoes... not the park's fault, blame the weather. It would be nice if they would add some paved (or at least limestone) bike trails, but I read that this was in the master plan and the local population strongly opposed it. Today my plan was to pack up and get out (a fiasco happened, see my last post), and drive to a couple other areas in the park to do some stuff. First we went to an area that supposedly had a nice large playground and picnic pavilion. We got there, and it was jam-packed due to a private party. We found an out-of-the-way table to picnic at across the street from the main area, then let the kids play on the playground for awhile... we almost had to pry them away. Then we headed a few miles east toward the main visitors center... and it was pandemonium. Parking lots jam packed, and from what we could tell, ZERO parking for vehicles with trailers. I pulled in one lot that did have a handful of doubled center spaces, but no 'pairs' that I could pull through were free, and then I found out the whole thing just dead-ended. Uhm, so here I was about 50 yards down a parking aisle, with the pup, and cars behind me, and not enough room to turn around. So my wife got out, had to explain to about 4-5 cars that we had to back out, and thus they had to clear the way. Embarassing, and terrible parking lot design. And I'm still new at pup-ing so backing for 50 yards in front of lots of people wasn't too fun lol. But all in all we loved the experience. We'll definitely be back, it's just a short drive from home. The east loop is a real gem of a place.
