Ambush Park Campground Professional Review and Guide

"This city park doesn’t offer a full nature experience, although it is on the Chippewa River, but it does have some unusual recreational opportunities in or adjacent to the park. There’s a mini golf course on- site and the original Benson schoolhouse, now a historic building. The park itself is historic, as it’s the site of the 1838 Chippewa ambush of the Sioux.

Right across the river is the Benson Aquatic Center, with pools and waterslides, and the Benson Golf Club, an 18-hole course. There are paved trails from the campground out along the river. Campsites are reasonably spaced with trees, and most are close to the river. Pets are not allowed."
