You have options for camping at three different campgrounds in Scott County. All three are privately owned:
Fish Lake Acres Campground (Prior Lake)
On the shores of Fish Lake, Fish Lake Acres Campground is large, with 140 sites ranging from primitive to full hookups. Activities include swimming, boating and fishing. Boat rental is available at the campground, too, although it looks like fishing boats, not canoes or kayaks.
Fish Lake Acres offers weekly, monthly and seasonal sites if you’re an RVer or just want extended time away from home.
Minneapolis Southwest KOA (Jordan)
Minneapolis Southwest KOA offers 114 tent and RV sites plus six Kamper Kabins. They have an indoor swimming pool, mini-golf, bike rentals, wi-fi and free Saturday night hayrides. Their season is from late April through early October.
Town & Country RV Park and Campground (Savage)
Town & Country Campground offers 80+ tent and RV campsites by the night, the weekend, the week or the month. There’s a swimming pool, game room, showers and laundry facilities on-site.
Town & Country is very family-oriented with kids’ crafts, family activities and community bonfires scheduled throughout the summer months. A 1.25 miles nature walk to nearby starts there, too.
This is one of the few local campgrounds that offers winter camping, too!
