    There aren't a ton of options right in the Twin Cities for RV parks. This is a good option just north of the city and is open to all veterans, not just disabled (in fact they just renamed it this year to just "Veterans Campground". Unlike most military campgrounds, you just need a DD-214 to show any length of service or a current ID card. The nightly rate seems pretty high for this park but both the weekly and monthly rates are fair ($160/345). It is really set up for people staying all summer who have the lots rented for 5 years at a time and really put a lot of work into them including decks and landscaping. There are a handful of water/electric sites for nightly rental. Otherwise there is a tent loop with 15amp service to keep your batteries charged because it is VERY wooded (for solar) and they allow RV's to park back there. The largest RV back there was a 5th wheel, probably 35'. We parked our RV at this park for 4 months in 2014 as we were preparing to full-time. That year we were in the tent section. Although wooded, the mosquitoes were not too bad, at least that year. In June 2015, we stayed for a month in a water/electric site. Because of the expansion, there were no trees near us but sites are still well spaced to not feel cramped. They do a nice job keeping up this park. The bathhouse is brand new and kept very clean. There are a couple veteran memorials to walk though. Although on the older side, they have boats for rent for fair prices so you can at least get on the water if you want. There is a (smoky) bar with very cheap beers and you can bring your own liquor bottle to the bar and mix your own drinks as long as you buy the mixers there! There is also frisbee golf, horseshoes, a baseball field and two new playgrounds. There is a small dog park.There is a small beach area and the dogs can swim (well, they did swim) at the boat launch area. Check for notifications, all beaches on the entire lake were closed for swimming when we were there this year for swimmers itch. Everyone here is very friendly and it's a pretty quiet park during the week (we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves) but everyone comes up to their RV 'cabin' on the weekends. When visiting family in the area, we plan to stay here again.
