We decided to stay at Buffalo River State Park while attending WMSTR (Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion). We wanted to have electricity and not have to be concerned with keeping our batteries charged to run the refrigerator while at the show. When we called ahead to get reservations the campground was full because of the show at Rollag, and because it was labor day weekend, but they had some spots that were non-reservable so by arriving early on Thursday we were one of the first to claim an open site.
We spent long fun days at Rollag and were glad to have a quiet little piece of the long grass prairie to return to at the end of the day. The girls had fun playing with a very large and plump green caterpillar they discovered on a tree. The Buffalo River meandered around behind the campground, and provided a nice place to splash for a couple of hours. The ground squirrels and garter snakes gave them something to chase around too. This is a nice place to stop for a while, and is definitely on our list of places to stay during the show in the future.
