Dakota Meadows RV Park Review – Prior Lake, MN

Dakota Meadows RV Park Review Header

Since our family lives in the southwest Minneapolis area, we stay at Dakota Meadows RV Park at the Mystic Lake Casino in Shakopee, Minnesota. Claimed as the Twin Cities premier RV Park, it is literally steps away from blackjack tables, slots and entertainment venues. It is also near Minneapolis’ Mall of America, Valley Fair, Cleary Lake Regional Park as well as many other fun things to do in the area.

However, our review may not be what you expect. Remember, we all have different journeys, likes and dislikes, perspectives and expectations.

Destination: 2019 New England Summer Seafood Festivals

One of our favorite things to do when we lived up in New England was watching the lobster and fishing boats return to port with their fresh catch. The smell of the ocean breeze coupled with thoughts of a good lobster boil on a summer evening just couldn’t be matched. With that, summer was the perfect time to check out the New England summer seafood festivals where crustaceans and sea creatures are the stars of the show…and our dinner plates! Summer, in my opinion, is the best time to visit the North Atlantic coast.

How and Where to Enjoy Dark Sky Camping

Today, as a nomadic RVer, I still look to the sky the same way as I did those three decades prior. My eyes are drawn up to the heavens above. I still get a sense of exhilaration when I see the Milky Way and points out some constellations. But the only way to get a good view of it is when we’re camping or parked in a dark sky location or dark sky community.

But, we didn’t end up alone…
