Repeatedly oversold and overcrowded :(

We have relatives just north of town, and have driven through the park several times this year with intent to stay. Each and every time we've stopped, it was sold out. That's nice to see in this economy, except the campground was always over crowed with trailers and RVs, many parked so close to each other their slideouts and awnings darn near touch, couldn't tell where one spot ended and next began. Says 90 spots, we counted upwards of 200 campers and RVs set up on multiple visits.

The (offsite but nearby) dump station is nice and clean, but hard to navigate to since it's on the wrong side of a two-way road; you wind up making a tight/sharp 120-degree left turn against traffic at a Y intersection after turning your rig around in a nearby parking lot. Definitely something the city should redesign for safety.

Based on our observations of several visits, we don't recommend this campground. :( Nor the dump station unless you have a smaller rig.

A little gem in the rough.

The campground is tucked away in Land Of Memories park, just off US Hwy 169 at the confluence of the Minnesota and Blue Earth Rivers. This year, the city added a new, RV-friendlier section with wide, paved pads and 50 amp hook ups.

Staff is friendly and very helpful. Leashed pets welcome, no wifi or cable TV (can get some local stations off-air).

Amenities: Only a handful of water spigots around the park. (If you need to hook up a hose to fill your fresh water tank, the staff recommends using a Y-splitter so others can still get water if they need to.) Secured, clean bathrooms and showers are available for camper use. Picnic shelter and playground in campground area. A hiking trail follows the river, and a public access boat ramp is available for those interested in boating or fishing. Frisbee golf, soccer and softball fields on park grounds.

Dump station: None on site this year (temporarily closed, they are relocating it to the new (RV) section) but the city has a public/free dump station located about 3 miles north on Hwy 169, and there is a privately-owned/pay-to-dump station at an RV dealer about 2 miles south on Hwy 169.

Rates: sites without electricity $14 per day; sites with 20 amp electricity $17 per day; RV sites with 30 amps $20 per day; RV sites with 50 amps $25 per day. (Note that rates are based on power available at your site, not what you actually hook up to.)

Firewood: $4/large bundle, delivered and stacked at your site. (Please help keep the Emerald Ash Borer in check by not transporting firewood!)
