River View Campground is a friendly, fun getaway for family and friends or to meet new friends!  Relax in the large heated swimming pool or gather around the sweet aroma of an evening campfire. Our central location to Minneapolis, Iowa, Mankato and Rochester make it a perfect spot to circle the wagons. Some enjoy throwing a line in the Straight River which flows through the campground or even launch a kayak or canoe. River View also offers many planned weekend events for our guests to partake in. In addition, there are several attractions in Owatonna such as the RAD Zoo (Reptile and Amphibian Discovery), Historic buildings tours, State School Orphanage tours, Village of Yesteryear, Steele County Free FAIR,  miles of biking trails, and of course a visit to Cabela’s! We are located 10 minutes south of the Medford Outlet Center and 45 minutes south of the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN for shopping fun.
