There are not a lot of good options in the Mpls metro for camping. To the south in Waterville, Sakatah Lake State Park is nice and right on a great bike trail. In nearby Fairbault, there is a nice KOA. To the east just north of Stillwater, William O'Brien State Park is really nice and wooded right on the St. Croix River. MN state parks do not have sewer or water hookups. To the west, Baker County Park has some nice sites. Hope you enjoy your visit in MN.

As far as WI campgrounds go, we are state park people. A few of our favorites in the northern part of the state are Crystal-Muskie by Minoqua, Wissota Lake just north of Eau Claire. Went to our first private campground last year, a KOA in Hayward WI. Pretty nice place, but a whole different type of camping. My daughter had a blast in the pool and water slide.

If you want a state campround close the Mpls/St Paul, look at Willow River State Park close to Hudson WI, a stones throw from Mpls. Also, I have never been here, but keep hearing good things about Lebanon Hills Regional Park, pretty close to Mall of America.

We prefer the state parks, Peninsula, Devils' Lake, Point Beach, and Governor Dodge are our favorites. Of late its been so hard getting into Peninsula State Park that we've been going to Egg Habor Campground and RV Resort. The owners, Mike and Debbie are great hosts and the park is very central to everything in Door County. One other private campground we've been to that we really like is Stoney Creek resort and Campground in Osseo. Not much to do around Osseo but the campground is excellent.

Any recommendations for northern WI, preferably close to Lake Superior or the MI border?
