This was our third visit to this park. Sites vary from level to very uneven. Lakeside campground is mostly open but right by the lake, Oak Ridge generally more private and more quiet.
Cell coverage (AT&T) is mostly good, but you may run into dead spots because of uneven terrain.

Great State Park
Above average state park with lots to do including hiking up to Mt Tom and climbing up the observation tower, fishing Lake Andrew, kayaking, and the swimming beach. LAKEVIEW campground is nice and close to the beach, but sites are more crowded. Although site 16e is fairly large and private. Most sites are 30amp electric, no water. Clean, hot showers. Rangers make lots of patrols.

The site we picked wasn’t very level but the walking trails were great and the beach was under construction but it was to cold to swim away. Quite and clean. Nice park would definitely come back

This park has it all! Clean lake, loons, lots of trees, great hiking, large beach, great fishing, awesome visitor center with many programs. There's a small camp store on the beach that sells treats & merchandise along with boat, canoe & kayak rentals. Lakeview Campground is hilly with shady sites that are not private with an older but clean bathhouse, reserve early the sites closest to the lake go fast. Oakridge Campground is more private, many sites cut out of the forest, with newer bathhouse, and camping cabins nearby. There's a LONG bike trail nearby in New London with cute shops, grocery & gas.

Our area "go-to" park.
Mike's review was accurate, but I'll add that it's only the Lakeside campground that is tight. The Oakridge campground has much larger sites, done with electric, some more primitive. It's a short bike, hike or ride to beach, but way more private.
Big beautiful, hilly oak Forest area with horse, biking and hiking trails. All types of MN fish. <10 min from neat town of New London.

Nice park with large oak trees. The beach and swimming area are very nice as well as a foot washing station to wash the sand off your feet. There is a fishing pier as well as canoe and Kayak rental. There are paved trails for biking. Water at the Ranger station. A bundle of wood is $5.50 and ice is $2 for a 5lb bag. Sites are pretty close to each other.
