Minn. Park Convenient for Twin Cities Camper
East of Waseca, Minn., across from Clear Lake on old Hwy. 14 is Kiesler’s Campgrounds, established more than 40 years ago by Kal and Barbara Kiesler.
They began their business in 1972 and opened the next year with 100 campsites. Now, 4 years later, Steve and Belinda Kiesler are in another summer season — 1,500 campers on 340 camping sites on 80 acres including wetlands, from the Waseca County News.
Steve Kiesler said half of their campers still come from the Twin Cities, with 30% from southern Minnesota and the rest from Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and other states. Customers coming from Minneapolis and St. Paul tell him they don’t have to fight the traffic going to campsites in northern Minnesota to get to the Waseca site. They tell him “it’s a no-brainer” to head south instead.
