I stopped writing reviews for a long time. Now I only write one, when the campground is a must stop and see. Well that is what we have here, must stop and see if your in the area. It is a great Rec campground, free wifi, free firewood, and free laundry. We where lucky enough to get to visit with the Post Commander and the Post SGM, soon to be CSGM. The Post is great, two gyms, older equipment, but still good stuff. There is so much to see and do in this area of MN, we had no idea. We picked Camp Ripley because of the previous post, they where right. Go out of your way and visit Ripley, stay a couple of days or a week. This is what camping is all about, plus the Commander has a great fish fry. Hats off to Camp Ripley, we will be back.

I stopped writing reviews, because I learned that what people thought was bad for them might be good to me. With that said, this is the 74th military campground we have visited. This is the best run campground of the 74. They want your stay here to be a great one. They don't care about your rank, officer and enlisted get treated the same, as it should be. If your in the area, visit this campground. This campground is Awesome.

Great place, if your headed to Seward stay here. We didn't stay at the Air Force campground and glad we didn't. There is no choice between the two. You can walk to the docks, downtown, and the local Safeway from here. They have free wifi, bar and grill, and a staff that goes out of their way to help you. The only issue, they do not have pull-throughs. The staff working the desk ask you if you want a pull-through, say no. Trust me on this one.

They don't have full hook ups, but this campground is better than Fort Rich. You have to pay for your laundry, but that's okay. The sites are big, and easy to back into. Dump station is free, Fort Rich charges you. It is only half mile from the BX/Commissary. The campground is just laid out the way it should be. The only knock, is some of the full timers have junk all over their campsites. Is it to much to ask someone to keep it clean? Maybe that is just one of my issues with campgrounds.

This is a campground, that in some places looks like a trailer park. There are some full timers here. It shows trust me. Yes they have free laundry, which seems to make people happy. Pull-throughs are not as great as some may think. I have a 34' 5th wheel, I ended up backing the unit into the pull-through. The camp host are great, although they have three of them. The size of the park only needs two at the most. It is a good park, but not great. They really need to clean it up.

This is our second time staying at Base Lake Campground. They have made some improvements and more are scheduled. They are replacing the 30 amp site that have gravel, and pouring cement. Before next year the gravel pull throughs and back-ins are to be upgraded with pavement. They painted the bathrooms, installed new doors, and replace all the smaller trash cans in the RV park. The lake is open for fishing, and the wifi still works great. Bud the camp host is back, and working just as hard as last year. He really makes this campground better.

This is our second visit to this campground. Everything is up and running, and it is a nice place to stay for a week or two. Bath house is clean, but I think it is a little pricey on the washers/dryers. The also have increased the daily/Monthly rate as of 1 Apr. This is still a good campground, and the best place to cross over the Mississippi River.

They just opened the rest of the new campground as we where leaving. It is okay, they could have done a better job. Make sure when you head to the campground that you turn left when you see the Camping Sign. It is across the street from the PX, but it is 1/2 mile from the PX. Many people get confused thinking the campground is right next to the PX, it's not. They still didn't have the washers/dryers hooked up. No cable, no wifi, not a lot at the campground. It is $20.00 a night, and you pay in full when you make your reservation. I think it is a little over priced.

This is our fourth time visiting Maxwell Campground. They have really improved it with new sites in the last year. Rick the Campground Manager does a good job. He has a lot on his plate, but he is making it work. The upgraded the wifi and it works faster. The new bath house is clean, and the washer/dryers are big and cheap to use. We enjoy staying here when passing through the state. As stated before use the Day street gate to go to the campground. Do not use the Commercial gate.

My ratings are low for this campground. This campground can do so much more to improve. The best thing going for this campground is the camp host. We took some damage to our 5th wheel when we left Albany. After arriving at Robbins, I asked the Camp Host if there was someone local that made site calls. She hooked me up with a great tech. He fixed my unit, and at a cost that is less than I would have paid at a dealership. The camp host even met him at the front gate for me. That is service. The down side to the campground. Looks like a trailer park. To many full timers, and they don't care how their sites look. The laundry room needed to be cleaned. The lock to the laundry room is almost impossible to open. Then need to fix it, they know it is a problem. The office is only open from 1000 - 1400, Mon - Fri. The roads in the campground need to be fixed. There is orange cones in place where the big ruts in the road are. The problem, there is no way to avoid the ruts when you leave. MWR needs to spend some quality time at the park.

We loved this little campground. Large sites, lot of space between each site. Joe the man that maintains the campground does a great job. Best looking campground I have ever visited. There are still only 8 sites, three are taken by full time DOD workers. We spent time talking to one, and received some good information. They are tearing down the old base housing, but they are going to leave one house for the campground. They are to convert it to a community center/laundry room for the campground. He said it should be finished early next year. The BX is closed for renovation, will reopen next March. Commissary is small, but great prices. If your in the area stop by.

This is our second time staying at Holbrook Pond Rec Area. They have improved the Rec Area a lot in the last couple of years. Laundry is still free, bath house is still clean, and the camp host friendly. Word is Hunter Army Air Field is building a new campground that will open early next year. When it opens, Holbrook Pond is suppose to close to be upgraded. This information was given to us by the lady that works in the office. We had no problem getting a satellite signal, but AT&T cell phone did not work. I recommend making reservation for this campground. We where put on a waiting list, and got in when someone canceled. We will return, and look forward to the upgrades.

This is a tough one to write. The problem with this campground is the people that have been homesteading there forever. One has three dogs that never stop barking, and they don't care. Site #3, the one we pulled into, almost finished setting up and learned the power didn't work. The office had a work order in to fix it, would have been nice to know when we called before we arrived. There is no wifi, cable, and only one washer/dryer. The bathrooms could have been cleaner, but not to bad. We talked to one person, and he said he stops by once a month, and the same people had been there for 2 years. It didn't have the look of a famcamp that had homesteaders. I would say this is a campground you only use as a stop over. I would only stay here two days.

Great little campground, we were very happy with the sites. It is $15.00 a night, but worth the money. There is no wifi or commissary on station. Very small installation, but nice gym, chapel, and class six. There is a Food Lion 2 miles out the front gate. Just a great view from your campsite. I think this would be a great place in the spring or fall. If your in the area stop by, you will be glad you did.

This could be a great campground, it needs some work. It took them two days to fix a water leak at our campsite. Make sure you're careful when you leave the campground and turn onto NC 210. We banged up our sewer house holder and the backend of our 5th wheel. The bathrooms where nice, big, and clean. With your access card it is only $10.00 for full hook ups, $8.00 for 20 amp/water. The staff is friendly and helpful, and you can build a fire everynight.
