Enjoyed our stay

This is a campground with electrical poles, and grills to BBQ. It was a nice spot and we enjoyed being there. But I was a little confused by the fact that in the BW description it says there are no reservations accepted, and that it is first come, first served. I made the request to stay through the site and got a response that said I was the first to request it for that day. And when we arrived, there were only a couple of other sites used, so it all worked out, but since there is no “on site” check-in, I wonder if a few more people had happened to pull in and the spots were all full, I don’t think there would have been anything I could do?
You should also be aware that Exeland is a dead zone for cell service, so if that is a problem for you, you should be aware. I had been given a number to call if I had any questions, but, without service, I could not have made the call if I needed to.
Someone mentioned the train whistles......I did hear them, but they did not wake me up.

Great campground

Nice campground. Clean and quiet. Electric hook-up for 50 amp, 30 amp, or 110. Water for drinking. Bathrooms are clean. Very nice place!

Small town Park, with water and electricity

The park was nice and well maintained. You can't really reserve a spot, it's first come first serve. Not sure BDW is the place to list a spot like this. I prefer the BDW way of knowing FOR SURE you have a reservation with someone.

There would be a risk in summer time that the 5 spots here would be taken and you would be left figuring something else out. (Paid park 15 minutes North in Radisson)

We pulled in post labor day, and so the place was empty. Water was supposed to be off and power off (we were warned). Water was actually on (one spigot by the bath house), and power poles unlocked. We used solar and generator, so never checked to see if the power was on.

There is a heavily used train track less than a half mile from the park and the trains run 24 hours. Still, not to bad or extremely loud, but if you're a light sleeper, it could be an issue.

I'm not complaining, it was FREE and worked out for us. We would stay here again for a night or two.

The town of Exeland is right around the corner, population about 200. They have a gas station and few other stores.

Sue’s Host location

What a gem!! Easy to find, easy to access. Only used the electric and the shade of a large tree. Three of the 5 sites were occupied while we were there. We used this as a base to visit the surrounding towns and villages. Had a great breakfast at Brenda’s in Exeland. Will request this quiet stopover when next in the area.

Nice Overnight

Hosts confirmed quickly and gave great directions and instructions. The park is a nice place for an overnight stay. It is safe and comfortable.

Excellent spot

I stayed two days and it was great. It is a used park so there will be people there during the day but it was good. There is a playground, basketball court, restrooms, picnic tables, fire pits, water and electric upon request. There is also a lot of water near this location to fish or do whatever else. I arrived at the location then sent a message letting Sue know I was there. The electric was locked the first night but was unlocked the second. It was raining pretty good the second day I was there so I didn't really use the hook-up but there is 50, 30 and standard outlet. Really a wonderful place and so cool they let you stay. Also, if you have kids, this location would be perfect! Thank you!
