I have more than one inquiry about a good camp ground that would be close to the Mall of America. Personally, I try to keep my Wife out of that place!!
Seriously though, it is quite an experience for anyone who hasn't been there. The Minneapolis Metro area doesn't have many campgrounds, at least nice ones. There are a lot of parks and (cultural) things to do, and the climate is very nice (three months of the year anyway).
I have not visited this campground but know where it is and it is in a nice area and about 20 minutes to the Mall. 30 if traffic is bad. It is a little spendy, but you won't notice the price by the time your spouse is done at the MOM anyway.
I live nearbye and would sure like to lunch with anyone that visits. (Bring shotgun for mosquitos) (12 guage preferably)
(That's Minnesota sporting clays)!!
