We just finished a weekend of camping at Mont du Lac RV Resort just outside of Duluth, MN. It's technically located in Superior, Wisconsin, but you get to it on Highway 23 through Minnesota. Here's our experience at the pretty new campground, and a couple of things you should know.

First off, I'm going to mention that it is a bit pricier than other campgrounds, but it also has a lot to offer. We got a premium RV site and for us it was $69 a night. In the peak summer months they are about $99 for a night for the weekend.. The premium sites feature a large concrete level pad along with 50 AMP service and water and sewer. Each site also has a fire ring with cooking grate. They are really nice sites and it's wonderful not having to worry about leveling your camper.

With the price of your camping you also get access to the Big Kahuna water park. It's a medium sized pond with a nice beach. In the middle of the pond is a giant floating slide/play area. We were camping in mid-may and it wasn't open yet, but we are excited to go back with the kids when summer is in full swing and let them burn some energy out there.

There also is a nice new playground that kids love. It's pretty close to the RV sites so we were able to keep an eye on the kids from our campfire. Mont Du Lac has a lot of other fun things to do too like disc golf, archery, mountain biking an other things. There's even tubing in the summer as well.

We ate twice at the Base Lodge that's at the foot of the ski hill. Both meals were pretty good, and I'll have to say that the wings I had for lunch may be some of the best I've ever had. Very tasty.

In all, the weekend was a lot of fun, and we will definitely be going back to Mont Du Lac. Even though we were early in the year and not everything was quite opened up, there still was plenty to keep us entertained. I'm looking forward to a fun, warm, summer weekend at the RV resort in the future. 

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
