    We’re already planning our next trip. This is our first family camping trip with our son so we were looking for something clean, quiet, near the area attractions, and in general family friendly. The staff was super helpful, pool was just cold enough after a hot day at Interstate Park, and it was less expensive than other campgrounds I’ve camped at. They had a few items in the store (fire wood, lighter fluid, cups, ice etc) and the upcharge was very minimal. $5.50 for firewood, when it’s $5 in town, but they delivered it right to my campsite and I didn’t have to drive for it. Other places I’ve been charge $7-8 for a bundle due to “convenience”.For all the other things we ran out of (we decided to stay an extra night) we just asked for directions to the nearest grocery store and the girls in the office gave us super easy to follow directions. The pool is great, kids liked the mini golf, and for a weekend it seemed pretty quiet to me. Not the usual “21+ crowd” which is GREAT if you have kids. The bathrooms and showers were CLEAN, I saw staff cleaning them 3 times in two days. There was security, but I’m not sure why LOL…..Fire rings were perfect for a small fire, we had plenty of room for a tent, a canopy, a car, picnic table, our own grill, etc….it’s a campground, I wasn’t expecting my own acreage :)True, the tent area is in a field like setting, but we were given the option of a shadier spot (more mosquitoes, its the WOODS people) so we picked the field and put up a canopy. The ONLY thing I didn’t like was the basketball court so close to the site path, but there were people playing all the time and I don’t think me worrying about it is worth reducing a star.Clean, quiet, nice staff, close to everything………….hoping there’s open spots for a weekend coming up!Also, I didn’t see any OBVIOUSLY dangerous branches, and based on a prior review I checked. I wouldn’t leave anything under trees if I knew a storm was coming, it’s MN, trees fall over, branches break in storms. You go to the country for woods…..can’t be mad at the owners if a storm knocks down a branch, unless you don’t have insurance and want to blame someone……but then again, that’s just my opinion.

    Very conflicting reviews but then I have learnt that it’s impossible to please all ! Our first visit coming up shortly to this camp and trust all will go well so one star for now and hopefully I can report back with a five ? Must say the booking bit was pleasant and straight down the line without the frills.

    Campers Beware of Potentially Dangerous Tree Conditions! I’m writing to warn others of the dangers to property and life in the mature tree-covered area in the campground area behind Wildwood RV Park & Campground’s office in Shafer, MN. (Never thought it could happen to us…heck, never thought of it – period. Now we are more aware.)We were tenting in the mature tree-covered area behind Wildwood’s office. Near midnight it stormed and 2 large oak branches fell, crushing our E-Z Up Canopy – with my husband underneath! (I was in our tent next to the canopy.) Luckily my husband heard the sound of limbs splitting and was crouching down just as the limbs fell! Also, if it wasn’t for our pickup parked beside our canopy and tent to break the fall, my husband would have been seriously hurt or worse. It took a forklift to get the limbs off our truck. There is more to this incident regarding the caretaker and owner but I’m not getting into that. We just want others to be aware of what happened to us and that it could happen to you.The next day, after a sleepless night, we saw a number of trees that were unsafe (some had rot/decay from the base of the trunk going up a number of feet). We told the caretaker and owner our concerns of the tree conditions and potential danger to other campers, and showed them some of the trees, so they definitely know about them (though the caretaker said “I don’t look at the trees, I just cut the grass”.) I believe a property owner has a duty to inspect their property regularly in order to identify dangerous conditions and either fix them or post warnings. Hopefully, the owners will take care of the bad trees as soon as possible before a similar incident or worse happens. Limbs and trees can fall at any time, not just during storms.

    We love this campground. We have stayed there annually over the last 7 or 8 years and have enjoyed both the group campsite area when we’ve had many people with us and also the secluded campsites in the far back of the campground. My kids love to swim in the pool, play games in the office, play mini golf and play in the playground. Not sure about the earlier comment about the heated pool. The kids have never complained about the pool being cold. Also, it’s a great location for a quick, easy camping trip from the cities with so much to do in the beautiful Taylors Falls/St. Croix Falls area.

    the other reviewer that called this place the “camper graveyard” could not be more right! the fire pit is tiny less than 24″. the “secuirty” driving around in the golf carts is laughable at best, but more annoying than anything. on the bright side the bathrooms were clean, and there was a ton of kids. they are trying, I will give them that but it was our first and last time going there.
