Lake Byllesby Campground
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stayed in our 5th wheel for a few days. We had a back-in site right on the lake. Very pretty spot. Very well maintained campground. Clean bathrooms & courteous workers. If in the area, we would certainly stay here again. The only reason I did not rate as Excellent is because of lack of sewer hookups at the sites - my understanding is they can't because of how close they are to the lake. I would prefer the close water over the sewer, but my personal rating system for campgrounds requires full hookups to consider an excellent rating.

My friend and I rented an Electric/water site and popped a tent on it. Overall this place is great. The bathrooms are very nice and VERY clean. The people that work there are great. We had a campfire until about 11:30pm and had no problems. Lots of dogs but hardly ever heard them. The beach and walking trails are gorgeous! I love this campsite and will return if we ever go that way again. Heard there is VERY good wine tasting nearby, will have to check that out next time!

Campground rules are 2 pages. No tarps under tents/no hard alcohol/quit time at dusk/on and on and on and on and on.

Facilities are nice, but you can't do anything. It is REALLY annoying that the little lakes and parks sheriff drives by at least every 20 minutes. They are more of a danger to kids that other vehicles because they drive by so often.

Our group spent over $1000 there, rented the shelter, followed every rule they had and ended up getting a "parking on the grass" ticket when we were unloading a truck full of stuff by the shelter. Ummm...the parking lot is probably 50 yards away and they don't even have garbage cans at the shelter...you have to bring your own!!!!!!!!!! $160 for rental and you bring your own garbage cans and have to haul them 50 yards.

The grass is dead anyway, not sure why they care.

The satellite toilets look like they have not been pumped for 4 weeks. The main facilities are nice, but you don't want to walk up there every time you have to go to the bathroom.

Will NEVER EVER return.

If you want to go with kids, walk a mile, not have a campfire, go to bed at 8 p.m. and sleep until 8 a.m. This is the place for you!

Had a great time all the campers were nice, the campground is spotless, and the employees were great, bathrooms are spotlesss and the showers are free. It is a county operated campground so it is well patrolled by the county sheriff. It is on the lake shore so there is no full hookups you get water and electric at the sites and they do have a dump station that is easy to get in and out of. Had a great time and will be back again and again. matter a fact I have already reserved my spot for there closing weekend in October they fill up fast so you better make a reservation.

I hesitate to even do a review on this park because I don't want it to be less available for us! This park is pristine and surrounded by lake and it has a large, sandy beach. All of the RV sites are lake front or view with full hook ups. The bathrooms and grounds are immaculate. There are paths and trails all over and it is only a short distance to Cannon Falls and the trails there. Its closeness to the metro area is also such a plus. At sunset campers get their cameras out to take pictures. The only complaint I have is that they allow two units on a site and they allow tents on the RV shoreline. A tent next to us set up right on the lake and it completely blocked our view. Campers need to be polite and considerate of their neighbors. Reservations are definitely recommended. It fills up fast!

Room Tip: Make sure you make campground reservations at the Dakota County Regional Park website.
