300 N Rum River Dr., Princeton, MN, 55371

Located in Princeton, Minnesota, the main feature of Riverside Park is the camping! The campground has 8 back-in sites with both 30 amp and 50 amp power that support water hookups (sewer not available). There are three primitive tent camping sites available with no hookups or electric for those seeking something a little more different. In 2018, a new shower/restroom building was constructed which our visitors can use as they please! Riverside Park features amenities such as picnic shelter and tables, barbecues, playground equipment and an all-purpose sports field. The park is located on the Scenic Rum River featuring a canoe and kayak launch. While you're here feel free to drop a line and do some fishing! The swim area is located at the north end of the park. Across the river from the campground there is a dog park for your favorite pet to enjoy the scenery leash free. If you are seeking some weekend fun, we now feature canoeing and kayaking all summer long! Whether its for a short and or long term stay, we hope to see you soon!

Nice small little campground. It is right in town so you do get some traffic noise. But pretty peaceful at night. Nice spot for launching kayaks or canoe.

Very nice park. Campground host was wonderful. He kept the bathrooms spotless, I think one day he cleaned them 3 times. Very friendly and helpful. Great spot, within walking distance to entire city. Nice trails across the river.

Clean, quiet, peaceful! Park was recently renovated and it shows. Walking distance to coffee and ice cream. Would be 5-star, but no dump station on site. Closest dump is Marathon gas station about 1.5 miles away

Park clean, well maintained. Expectable amount of noise for an rv site adjacent to the main drag. Ran into an issue with water quality Saturday evening into Sunday- called parks staff Monday morning, they were very responsive and said they would look into the matter right away.

What a nice park and community! The campground was very clean. There are bathrooms with a shower. The playground is awesome. There are rope swings for jumping in the river on a hot day. Each campsite has a nice fire ring and picnic table. Be sure to get your picture on the giant chair on the hill! No dump station here, but there is one at the Marathon gas station, free with fuel fill otherwise $10. There is also a fantastic dog park across the river. My dog loved it! It has lots of room, garbage can and bags for poo, and even a water fountain for tall people, short people, and dogs. We'll be back to this campground next summer!

It was a great place for the first time ever using our new camp trailer. You are so close to everything that if you needed you were right there.

Very clean. Nice big sites but little to no shade. The park was excellent and the access to the Rum River is top notch. Saw a bonus rope swing but the weather was to cold for the kids to swim. Don’t forgot to take a family photo in the big chair on the Hill!!

When we arrived the rental kayaks/canoes were in my reserved spot. Friday night there was a kids birthday party at one of the campsites with the parents screaming at thier kids all evening. The bathrooms were filthy and not cleaned until late Monday morning.

Campground Response

Andrea, We want to apologize for the inconvenience of the canoes in your space upon arrival. As I'm sure you noticed we are currently making improvements to the park and the construction crew must have moved the trailer out of their way and into the campground space. We also apologize for the birthday party. We are working on improving our processes and would like to offer a free weekend at our campground if you would be interested either this year or next summer when all improvements are complete and processes are improved. Please feel free to email me at shillesheim@princetonmn.org for more information. Kind regards, Stephanie

The lot itself was acceptable, recently mowed. What was not pleasant was the amount of people there. It is a city park, so it was very busy. Bad part is, there was a bunch of locals coming through clearly intoxicated. On guy we observes was actively intoxicated, and appeared to be a predator, watching young girls swimming, and tossing his beer bottles in the trees. The bathrooms were cleaned daily, but in no time, they were a mess again. Never did see any law enforcement come through. If they had a presense, maybe the excessive alcohol use wouldn't be such an issue. It's a pity...it is a nice park.

Traveling through the area and paid $35 to reserve a site with electric because it was in the 90's and needed air conditioning. Was a waste of money because we did not stay. Reservation stated the site was 55' which it was not, there was nothing marking the site as reserved, there was food and garbage on the ground, there were tents set up that appeared to have been there quite awhile, the grounds were not well maintained and I did not see any type of lighting for security. We did not feel comfortable staying at this park and moved on down the road.
