State Parks that we have been at that I would recommend are William O'Brien, Sibley and Lake Shetek. One we have frequent in Wisconsin that we like is Willow River which is just northwest of Hudson a few miles.
Campsite reservations - State parks: Minnesota DNR

One popular private campground that has everything for the kids is Kieslers in Waseca.

You should have taken a trip to the Minneapolis Convention Center this weekend for the RV & Camping Show. Lots of representation from campgrounds there.
Funny you say that..... We bought our camper there lol. Just to busy looking at all our options to spend any time looking at site lol

Lake Byllesby in Canon Falls is one we enjoy.
If you want to travel a few miles north of St. Cloud, our favorite campground is Two Rivers Campground. They are the most expensive place we got to, but the sites are very large and the many things to do for the kids.

Two Rivers Campground & Tubing

Near the Twin Cities, we also enjoy going to Rice Creek Chain of Lakes.

I do recommend Grand Marais City campground, pricing fairly good, Lake Superior shoreline, easy walk to downtown Grand Marais and Artist Point. We select a campsite further back from lake and our site has considerable privacy and shade (water and electric). Closer to lake sites are really jammed together with little shade. We'll be there in July over the same time the Art Festival goes on in Grand Marais, site 78, anyone around then stop in and say hi, we'll be there for a week...

While I have a "short" fifth wheel, it still has at times been "interesting" to get into state park sites that should have fit. Take their notes about the pad length seriously, and use the total length of your TT and TV. Harder is getting an idea of the surrounding conditions. I've been in places where the site is big enough, but it is a narrow one lane road past the site, and close to the opposite edge is a wall of brush. Making turning and backing, as I said, "interesting". Check out the surrounding sites, as well as pictures at Campsite Photos, Camping Pictures, and Campground Reviews - campsitephotos.com to get an idea of what it may be like, and pick accordingly.

One private place we were at for almost two weeks was Stoney Point Resort, up north on Cass Lake. Minnesota Family Resort - Camping, RV Park and Cabins on Cass Lake, MN - Stony Point Resort
Well kept place. Huge swimming beach. It is mostly seasonal, but there are a relatively high number of by-the-day sites. All are pretty spacious. Good restaurant on premise. Right next to miles of paved bike trails. Easy access to several state parks and recreation areas. About an hour or so to Itasca State Park (where the Mississippi starts). 1/2 hour to Bemidji. Boat rentals available for fishing on Cass Lake. Premium sites even have their own docks!
