Campground Standards

We want everyone to enjoy their time at Prairie Island Campground, so we developed some standards, a laundry list of expectations for our guests. This way, you'll know what to expect, and so will your neighbors:

  • Campers and day users, please check-in at the camp office upon entering the campground; we want to welcome you in person.  If the office is closed please check-in with our friendly camp hosts.  Their site location will be posted on the office door.
  • If you find your site just doesn’t work for you, please contact the office prior to moving to a new site.  We will work hard to find a site that speaks to your inner camper whenever possible.
  • We love youthful energy at the campground; however, if you are under 18 you must camp with a parent or guardian.  Don't worry, old people can be fun too!
  • No site alterations, or permanent structures allowed; we want you to feel at home, but not that at home.  Please feel free to communicate with management if you have ideas about the layout of your site, this way we can consider possible improvements in the future.
  • We love our trees and grass. Please, do not harm them.
  • Fish cleaning facilities are located near the boat launch; clean your fish there and not in your site. We don't like to keep the scavengers guessing.
  • Quiet Time is 10 pm until 7 am unless otherwise stated by management for special circumstances, so please be considerate of your neighbors and expect the same of them.  
  • Inverter generators are allowed only when placed in sound-proof boxes.
  • The campground must remain a safe enjoyable place for everybody.  Unsafe actions will not be tolerated in the campground and will result in you being asked to leave.  Your site will be forfeited, no refund will be offered, and you will not be allowed back.
  • We welcome well-behaved pets.  All pets must be controlled on leashes not longer than 6’ and cleaned up after immediately.  Pets must not cause a disturbance for other guests.
  • Paid campers will be held responsible for the actions of their guests, this includes pets and brothers-in-law.
  • Fireworks will not be allowed; there is an exception for fireworks that are legal in Minnesota on the evening of July 4th.  
  • Visitors will be asked to park in the day use lots after they have off-loaded heavy items.
  • Unpaid guests must leave the campground no later than 10 pm.
  • You're on vacation; enjoy, relax and drive slowly, this way everybody will be safe.
  • No ground dumping of waste water of any kind. Thanks for complying, and Mother Nature thanks you too.
  • Land stewardship is important us. Please do your part by controlling your trash and keeping your campsite clean.  Use the waste bins located by the dump station.
