4 Star Rating   October 28th, 2019   New Loop added
A few years ago a third section was opened. Like the other 2 loops the sites are large and private with trees between sites. The original 2 sections are Gunn Point( sites1-76), and Lime Kiln (101-186). The new section is Holmes Bay (sites201-278).

New Campsite Review Added for Bon Echo Provincial Park, Ontario - Campsite 167
3 Star Rating   September 22nd, 2019   Good view with some drawbacks.
-The walk to the site from parking/outhouse is 3-5 minutes or so.
-The walk is up and down some hills that may make carrying coolers and other hand held items harder, especially downhill.
-The campsite is not flat other than the two areas designated for tents.
-Good view, good fishing spot.

We have a 35` trailer and while the site is big enough, the angle and position of the site made it hard to get a trailer that big into the site. Its not as private as some of the other sites, but has good shade.

Pretty little site with a nice big tree in it, but it was a close thing getting my 17’ casita travel trailer in and out! A better tent site than RV. There are prettier sites but it was a nice spot for the weekend.

New Campground Review Added for Wolf Run State Park, Ohio
2 Star Rating   September 11th, 2019   Wolf Run State park is in great need of maintenance & updating.
Wolf Run St Pk has very shallow open unlevel sites, no privacy. Sites were clean. Cherry Trail was nice. Other trails were overgrown and ended abruptly, encountered ticks in the high grasses on the unmaintained lake trail. The outhouses are the worst I`ve seen in 50+ years of camping. No lids on toilets, no doors to outhouse & there seems to be absolutely no treatment of excrement in pits, therefore flies & bugs are unbearable. The smell extends far into the campground. Horrendous! There is a port-a-potty at the picnic ground that is a highly recommended alternative and well worth the drive.The Ohio State Parks pamphlet & Wolf Creek pamphlet indicate a Nature Center. I asked the woman in the park entrance booth & she said it was a brown building just up the road. When I told her I looked but couldn`t locate it, she then offered up that it is no longer open. I found the broken down building that was a bit larger than an outhouse, a disappointment as I go to parks with nature centers for my grand kids. When reserving a site on Reserve America there were many sites with no pictures or specs on shade & site length. That should have been a red flag. I gave a 2-star rating only because the lake is beautiful & I imagine excellent for boaters. I would not return to this campground.

New Campsite Review Added for Wild River State Park, Minnesota - Campsite 80
4 Star Rating   August 25th, 2019   Double Campsite
This site is a double campsite. It worked well for 2 tents, though we positioned the tents next to each other instead of opposite sides of the site. There is a close water spigot and a path conveniently provides a short walk to restrooms w/showers. The pit toilet is nearby as well due to a path across the road. Only downfall with the site is the lack of grass.

New Campsite Review Added for Minneopa State Park, Minnesota - Campsite A30
3 Star Rating   August 25th, 2019   Close to restrooms. Pretty good shade.
There is far less grass than the pictures. Shade was sufficient except for when the sun was high. Restrooms are close but didn`t feel they were noisy. Not much privacy due to a path that runs between A30 and A32.

New Campground Review Added for Nerstrand Big Woods State Park, Minnesota
3 Star Rating   August 24th, 2019   Older park, but nice
Heavily wooded. Sites are close together with some just feet behind you. We were shocked that there is water hookup at this state park. In heard of I’m MN. Small waterfall, steep trek down. Many sites not level or damp (non-electric). Non-electeic offers more privacy. Bathrooms were nice and clean.

New Campsite Review Added for George H. Crosby Manitou State Park, Minnesota - Campsite 14
5 Star Rating   August 9th, 2019   Secluded, Very Nice
Took the kids for a trial backpacking run. IMHO, this state park is great for a starter backpacking trip, trails are well marked, easy hike in and out, they even put in stairs and rebar supported boards, trails are very well maintained. Tent pads are flat and fairly level. It`s backpacking utopia.

Site 14 is 8-15 minutes down the river from site 13, depending on how fast you are and how heavy your pack is. Also, site 14 is a good 1-2 minutes off the trail, very secluded. You could pitch 3 to 4 tent and it`s right on the river. I passed sites 3-13 and thought site 14 was the best of the lot, mainly due to being secluded.

There`s a toilet a little up from the camp (there`s a pole marker for it).
And I do mean just a toilet, not in an outhouse, it`s a pit toilet on a platform in the open. At least it`s a private site.

The site has some log benches and a nice grill pit, very shaded.

Also of note, the Manitou river was brown when we went early August, the water filtered brown (apple juice colored, with some soapy looking bubbles). I was a little concerned, but what are you going to do, we drank it filtered. I didn`t see any signs, "Don`t drink the water!". After we left, I called the state park to ensure it was safe, they said it was safe to drink (Iron, sediment, dead plants...etc). We didn`t get sick. Just calling this out from someone from out west where the water is clear.

Also, I think the quickest way to sites 11-16 is to take Yellow Birch, to Cedar Ridge, to Matt Willis, then hike the river trail. Cedar Ridge is much easier to hike than taking Yellow Birch all the way to the river trail. The river trail has a lot of ups and downs, steam crossings over logs, it`s much slower than the relatively flat Cedar Ridge trail. With this route, it took us roughly 1.5 hours to get to from the parking lot.

Site 14, Highly recommended as a starter trip. Seasoned backpackers may want a little for challenge.

4 Star Rating   August 9th, 2019   Nice Site, Close to Trail
This site is right on the river, 2 pads. The entrance is south, you walk for 2 minutes south, only to find it`s 25 feet off the trail. So why did they not put the entrance to the closest part of the trail?

It`s a beautiful site though, we did not stay, but passed it going to site 14, which is another 8-15 minutes south.

Site 1 and 3 have been cleared to build new bathroom which is supposed to be ready in 2020. Should be a huge improvement.

New Campsite Review Added for Temperance River State Park, Minnesota - Campsite 32
5 Star Rating   August 1st, 2019   Wonderful, private, nice view
We stayed late July for three nights. Reserved it two months in advance; both campgrounds were full every night. The showers were open, to our pleasant surprise. This is the middle site of three cart-in sites. This and 33 are very private, large sites. 31 only gets viewed by the folk in 32 and 33, so it`s pretty private too, and I felt it had slightly better views. 32 mysteriously has gravel for a tent bed; 31 and 33 had fresh wood chips. The campground is meticulously maintained otherwise, and this site offered amazing views and a great experience. Mosquitoes...well...it`s MN. This is a tent only site.
