  1. Donna Higginbotham says:

    $45 a night for dry camping!!!!!! (That includes the $7 registration fee, AND $7 per car per night fee.) Wayyyyy overpriced. Our site was a nightmare to get into with a small 25 foot camper. The brush is way overgrown, and our site was not on an angle, so it made it hard with all the brush and trees to turn to get into. It should be made a tent only site. We did take one of the paths and that was nice. The vault toilets were clean but they stunk terribly!!!!
    The road in was muddy gravel and washboard. Our site was also a muddy mess.
    Shame on Minnesota for way overpricing!! Shame on me for paying it!!!!!
    No internet and TV reception. No showers….. NOTHING!
    We couldn’t wait to leave!
    Worst state park we have EVER been too!
