We stayed 8 nights for hockey camp at LSSU. The sites are very close but we had a 6 other campers in our "group" so being close was nice. We were near the playground, do not let the photo on the campground map fool you, it's old!! Metal slide, old merry-go-round and swings. The grass around park was very long... More

Our 3rd stay here will take place in August. We enjoy the park and the views are terrific with many freighters passing close by the park area. The staff is very friendly, helpful and knowledgable of the area. You should stay here to experience great views. Campsites are nice but they do lack shade.

Just checked in campground. Very poor lay out. Fire pits are not even close to lots. At least 25' away.do not recommend this place to anyone. Grass around fire pit is not even cut. At least 10" high. Not many trees or grass

We have stayed here in the past (approx. 2 yrs ago) and it was very nice. We now are downsizing and have a tent and the place was not mowed, we were offered a site that was "under water". Was told that there was a municipal campgrounds down the road. They acted like we were not welcome at all and... More

Even though there were few amenities, The fact that we could park our RV facing the St. Mary's River, was simply amazing. We All enjoyed seeing the freightliners coming through. The office also provided us with a fact sheet on the boats and the different horn signals. Great price too!

Aune Osborn is located on the St. Mary's River and makes for great freighter watching. And you won't have to wait long to see a freighter either. They pass through the Soo Locks on a regular basis (the Soo Locks are busier than the Panama Canal). It is very interesting to watch as the ships navigate the river, and they... More

Because Aune Osborn is relatively new, the trees aren't large and it has a bit of a parking lot look. However, the showers and laundry look new and were well kept. The gal at the registration desk was super nice. We had a site on the water and loved seeing the freighters go by.

Convenient location, with amply sized lots even for big rigs. Pads are grass & gravel and are quite level. Some low areas are slow to drain after a deluge. Water, electric & WiFi in most sites. Like I said, it's all about the view.

We have enjoyed staying here the past several years. Lots are nice and spacious. Watching the freighters cruise up and down river is enjoyable. Could spend hours watching them. Prices are reasonable and staff is friendly. Restrooms are well maintained. Location is convenient to casino and downtown area.
