  • We stayed here Memorial weekend with our 11 year old grandson. Our campsite #141 was perfect. It was huge and very private. There are a lot of hiking trails which we took advantage of a few of them. T...  more »

  • I have been coming to this park for years and have always had a great experience. The park has a little something to do for everyone from BIKE riding, kayak and canoeing, hiking, Horseback riding, walking or just plain hanging out by the fire. The park has a lot of wildlife and things to see if your lucky you may even see a rare glimpse​ of a bear. Its a peaceful place even with nice showers and actually hot water. The park staff has always been friendly and helpful.
  • Many amenities within the park. Being located on the St. Croix is great for the river enthusiasts, and close to many local attractions is great for a rainy day!! Fun for everyone.
  • Non-private camping at its worst. Staff nice and helpful, but limited by layout and poor planning. We stayed at the empty horse camp (with no water) rather than suffer neighbors close enough to overhear a whispered conversation. Mosquitos were no surprise, but ticks turned out to be a major issue, which was not anticipated. Been camping in MN for over 20 years, never experienced blood suckers like this... No bush-wacking expedition and barely any hiking (partly due to discovery of tick madness), but even still a total of 13 ticks found over two days! Yes, long pants, wool socks and deet applied regularly, all to no avail. Tick just pulled after leaving is pictured, but I'm probably going to bomb my car tomorrow to make sure no stowaways made it. If you dare to camp here, make sure ticks are top-of-mind.
  • Lots of fun things to do here. The programs they offer kids are a lot of fun. Great trails for hiking, access to the river, nice swimming areas, bathrooms were always clean.
  • Lots of facility issues. Lack of water in majority of the park made it difficult with the only drinkable water 1.5 miles away from camp sites.
