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:

  • Quiet Time is 10 pm until 7 am.  

  • Respect your neighbors.  Keep the noise within your rented site.  Inverter generators are allowed only when quiet or placed in sound-proof boxes.

  • Two tents, or one camper and one tent, allowed per site.  Eight (8) guests maximum per site.  Walk-in tent sites maximum of 4 people.

  • Park campers perpendicular to the river, 3’ off the road and site boundaries, including slide-outs.

  • Drive slowly, so kids will be safe.

  • Firewood must be purchased at the Camp Store and cannot be brought in.

  • Youth under-18 must camp with a parent or guardian.
