The Jackson, Minnesota KOA makes the perfect place to rest for a night or more. Right in the heart of southern Minnesota, halfway between Chicago and Mount Rushmore.

Nestled halfway between Chicago and Mount Rushmore and only a half day's drive to the Badlands or Wisconsin Dells, the Jackson, MN KOA Journey is a great place to stay for the night or a few days. With easy access to I-90, it's a breeze to get you back on the road. We have a site for every kind of camper; choose a tent area with a grill, a one or two room Camping Cabin, or a long, level Pull-Thru RV Site. Enjoy your favorite treat from our camp store as you check into your site. The beautiful laundry room is open 24 hours and offers a clean, bright space for all your laundry needs. The large pavilion has lots of space for events, family games, great conversations and hosts some of our campground activities! You'll find that our beautiful pool, bean bag toss, and playground are fun for the whole family. For our camping guests who love to fish, our KOA is close to great fishing and water-skiing lakes! The Jackson Motorplex, golf course, and restaurants are an added bonus to our location. Of course, we can't forget about our furry friends, so be sure to check out our KampK9. Free Wi-Fi that is dependable and fast is offered to all guests.
