Rochester / Marion KOA

Rochester/Marion KOA is the perfect country quiet setting campground with no planes or trains!

Sit by your campfire and enjoy the beautiful, peaceful country setting. Enjoy your morning coffee, as you plan your next day's journey to one of the many biking and hiking trails, Amish area and Bluff Country. Maybe a game of golf at one of the many golf courses in the area is what you are looking for? We are a short 10 min drive to all of your shopping needs, maybe even the Mall of America!

We are the perfect place for your vacation away from the city! Our lush, green grass feels great underfoot, while playing a round of Frisbee golf, game of badminton, or volleyball while the children play in the playground.

Or perhaps a dip in the pool is the therapy you need. For groups, we provide a meeting room that is air conditioned and heated. We are where fond memories are made, laughter is heard and friends are found.

Local Area

Amish

The Harmony area is home to Minnesota's largest Amish settlements. Over 100 Old Order Amish families live in the countryside near Harmony. The group is known as the “Harmony-Canton Amish.” “Old Order” indicates that they are very private people, and use only limited technology in their homes and businesses.The Amish of Harmony began their move to this area in 1974 and have grown to over 1,000 people with ten church districts and ten one-room schools. Another Old Order Amish group has recently begun settling in nearby Granger, Minnesota.The Amish primarily make their living through farming, construction and by making and selling crafts. Baskets, furniture, jams, rugs, quilts, baked goods and cashew crunch are among the items available for sale in local businesses and at farmers markets, Amish homes and roadside stands.

Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic legacy began with Dr. William Worrall Mayo. Dr. W.W. Mayo came to America from England in 1846, and initially settled in Le Sueur, Minnesota. When he was appointed examining surgeon of the Union Army draft enrollment board for the southern half of Minnesota, he originally left his family behind in Le Sueur, MN to report to the board's headquarters in Rochester. Dr. W.W. Mayo decided he liked the town and moved his family to Rochester in 1864. Dr. Mayo was 44 years old when he settled in Rochester with his wife Louise; his three daughters; and his first son, William James. The Mayo's second son, Charles, was born in 1865, right at the end of the Civil War.

Hike or bring your horse to ride the ridge tops and stream valleys. Observe interesting geologic features along the way including sinkholes and dramatic Big Spring. In the fall, don't miss the bold colors of the forest. Winter invites visitors to ski or snowmobile the Bluff Country.
