With the new campground hosts, the grass is kept short, the bathrooms and showers are modern and extremely well kept, and the cement RV pads are literally swept prior to your arrival. The campground is literally on the Mississippi River. When it is raining, there is a huge pavilion with a fire pit in the middle so you can still chill outside around a fire and/ or cook. This place really is a great kept secret. The security (it is a national guard base with unarmed private security guards) do their rounds frequently but never bother anyone. The camp hosts are the ones who may tell a loud party to quiet down. But they are so folksy that they do not offend. Great people. If you are hungry, they have a little PX on the main base area and outside the main gate are two bar and grills. The bar and grill named "Main Gate" has very inexpensive food and if you show your campground pass, they give you two for one beers. And the beer is always $2.00 a glass. If you get bored, you can go into the little towns around the area. The town right out of the gate is Little Falls which has the former home of Charles Lindbergh. This campground has both tent camping and full electric/ water RV sites for $17 a night. Free firewood as well.
