secluded county park on the river

This park has been closed on and off during the time of the pandemic. When open, it is a hidden gem for rustic camping in terms of setting and location, deep in the woods and right on a bend on the river. The campsites  are well spaced and shaded, and the tenting area is particularly spacious. There is an official boat access to the river for fishing, but it seems to have sustained some flood damage during recent storms, and it is pretty steep, so it might not be the easiest for boats and trailers until repaired.  I am giving this campground a 3 because though the wooded setting is so appealing, warranted a 4 or even 5,  I will say that campground overall was a bit run down, the outhouse facilities left a bit to be desired, better maintanence is needed, and one the the main group picnic shelters seemed a bit rickety.  Another reviewer mentioned bugs, this is not a problem in fall when we were there, and the campground is well above the river so maybe not a problem in drier times in summer, but I can imagine that after times of rain there would be alot of muddy puddle areas along shore that might be mosquito heaven

Nice municipal campground in a rose garden

This is a very nice municipal campground run by the city of Mayville. It is located adjacent to the Rainbow Rose garden and sculpture park, and opposite the large beautiful Island Park which has myriad recreational opportunities (see link here: https://www.mayvilleportland.com/things-to-do/parks-recreation/)

The campsites themselves are fairly small and open and close together , but the grounds are well kept and the proximity to the beautiful city park is a real plus. Note that you need to call Jeremy, the parks officer, to make a reservation, and you usually need to leave a voice message and he will call back to help you make arrangments. The number to call is 701-430-7177.  This is a convenient and pleasant location to camp if visiting Mayville.

Basic but serviceable campsite in town park

This is a small town park in a very small town, and it happens to have a few campsites. Basic but adequate, nothing special, a place to stay if in the area, such as attending a 4H event or ball tournament or other local event

simple tenting in town park

This camp ground is not so much a campground as it is a city park which has a section where tenting is allowed. There are bathrooms available, and a lovely sheltered  grassy spot to set up tents, and a place to grill and get water  at the picnic shelter, but in terms of other camping amenities there really arent any, so in similar conditions I might give a 3-star rating. However,  I am giving this camping spot a 4-star rating simply because it is located within a really sweet little town park that is beautifully kept, lovely grounds, nice playground and ballfields nearby, picnic shelter, pretty gardens and a very unique educational community  orchard that features a whole variety of different grapes, berries, apples, and more. (see link here: http://www.arthurnd.us/orchard/

This would be a nice place for a scout troup or youth group to have an overnight, or for a family reunion to set up. There are no RV sites or anything like hookups or anything like that, just tenting. You need to call the city office on a weekday to make reservations.

 It is also located by the trailhead of the North Cass Pass Bike Trail which goes north to Hunter, ND see link here:  https://www.traillink.com/trail/northern-cass-pass/  so this might be a good place to camp if you want to do a weekend bike trip.

Good place for newbie

I would have giving this place a 3 star as there isn't much to see here except the fair grounds when there is something going on, however this is a good place to do a practice run for newbies. It is only a few miles from Outlet Recreation also which can be handy if you need something from an RV dealer.

Not the best

First off there really aren't very many spots for a camper and from what I've seen for such a nice and semi large park and at least half of the are on a steep incline.

Clean, cute and well located

This was an overnight while on a cross country trip. Even though the site is close to highway, it felt like we were in a more isolated campsite. The campsite was clean and shady. There is a swimming pool (closed for season) that looked like a nice place with a sandy bottom. There was a playground and some walking trails. I would stay here again. Bathrooms very clean.

Convenient, clean, and nice

The north campground loop is more RV-oriented, while the smaller south loop attracts the tents. The sites are fairly close together but those on the outside of the south loop have some vegetation to separate them so they feel reasonably private. Nice bathroom facilities, including an outdoor dishwashing sink, perfect for the COVID year. Several nice hiking opportunities leaving directly from the campground. This was one of the buggier campgrounds we experienced during our August trip, though. In all, a nice campground but nothing so special that you need to go far out of your way for it.

Great little campsite

This is a very well kept camping area. The sites are nicely situated. We stayed in the tent are (#39) and were very private from our right and left neighbors but others are directly across from us. The bathhouse is newer and extremely clean. Yes, the mosquitos are plentiful but it is because the woods and river which also make this place nice. Our only complaint was the nearby train traffic that came through all night. Definitely would use this as a stopover again.

It's In A Small Town, Perfect For A Night

I was driving this way and I needed a place to stay overnight. I found this campground on Google, and added to Dyrt. It's in a small town called Fosston.

Nothing special about this, it's not a place to stay for multiple nights but it's great for an overnight.

There is a self-check-in, electric hookups and there is a dumpsite and water at the end of the campground. The price in 2020 September is $5 for a tent and $16 for RVs. 

It's quiet enough but you will hear road noise. 

I don't use public showers or toilettes but there was one.

AT&T and T-mobile reception both slow but manageable.
