This is a small village campground that will host 4 RVs with hookups, and probably several tents. Reservations are not taken; if you show up and a space is available you can take it, then drop payment at the town board office. You can stop there on a nightly bassis, or rent by the month. The odd thing is, it is actually several blocks away from the actual village park where you would have to go for facilities like bathroom, which you would have to do if you were tenting or have a camper without a bathroom. Although the city park is beautiful once you get there--ballpark, nice picnic areas, great group shelter, good playground, big shady trees, and more-- walking over there for bathrooms is a bit much to have to do. Also, unfortuantely, the location of the campsites (which is at the corner of 1st St and Railroad St) is, yes you guessed it, not your quiet restful location. So, the campsites are at 1st St and Railroad Ave, and the main park is at the corner of 1st St and Dakota Ave, which is inconvenient, but the walk into town for shops and cafes is very easy. No one was camping there when I visited so it is hard to say who might frequent it, but perhaps snowbirds who are from this area might find this a decent arrangement for temporary summer seasonal camping, but probably not a destination campground for a family vacation
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.
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
I needed to scout what Turtle River looked like before I pull my travel trailer there in Spring. Here is what I found.
Nice flat pull through campgrounds. Easy electrical outlets with breakers. Water outlets are off for winter. Plenty of bathrooms Septic is drive through may be tricky to get in with large trailer. Gas stations are about 5 miles east of park. With Subway and Dairy Queen. Lots of big trees, cleared enough for campers, but watch for widow makers. Nice and playful dog park. Cabins are basic and look warn. Park Manager going to fix up next year. As all state parks, under staffed. 2020 was record high for campers in park. Beautiful however the lake in entrance will not be seen in campgrounds. Nice flat spaces for tent camping. Very clean. Well groomed. Fire pits BBQs everywhere. Plenty of places to explore. Lots of trails. Friendly staff. Dogs aloud in park as long as on lease except in the dog park of course. Lots of wildlife during certain times of year. No dangerous wildlife or reptiles. Fishing aloud certain time of year. No hunting = good Firewood at main entrance. No snack machines seen?
Very nice place all in all to visit for a week or weekend.
If you're looking for somewhere to park a big RV, this campground is modern, convenient, and nicely-equipped. There's no privacy or nature to be had, though. It's a grassy plain with straight rows of pull-throughs.
However, there are a handful of walk-in sites off to the side that looked quite nice. That's definitely the way to go if you'd like to pitch a tent and have a little peace and quiet.
Stayed here on our family vacation to various state parks in ND. Although, this was a nice place, it was the bottom in our list of places we visited. No swim beach - we ended up going over to Larimore Dam rec area, which was awesome!! Had some geocaches, but TONS of poison ivy!!!! Even had sprouts if it in our mowed campsite! We were careful & nobody got it. Had a scavenger hunt while we were there, which was a nice way to explore a bit. Nice trails.
Talk about a nice hideaway! We found this site Googling free campsites. It is not free it is $15 a night with full hookups! 50amps! My wife and I were so happy to find this place tucked away in the town of Hendrum, MN.
I only took away a star since the facilities are closed and the mosquitos are vicious! There is only room for about 3-4 campers so call in advance for a spot! It is well worth it!
This campground used to be houses before flooding so the roads are paved campsites are pretty open mostly all pull through sites. Walk in campsites on the red river give amazing views and seclusion just a short walk away. Campground is also right downtown East Grand Forks for easy access for any supplies.
This would be an interesting park for birders, and as some other reviewers have said it is like an oasis in the prairie, a forested enclave. The interpretive staff at the visitors center are enthusiastic, the river is good for fishing, and there are a lot of trails. It is a good get-away for folks who live in the Grand Forks area. Unfortunately, we were there on an event weekend—“Halloween in July” which meant the campsites were jam packed for the weekend with people eager to be costumed ghouls and do various tricks and treats. RVs were jam packed in, as were the tent sites, and even the hike-in campsites seemed crowded. It was also very buggy which is probably to be expected in a lowland with wetlands. One great appeal was a really great dog park! One if the nicest I’ve seen, and surprising that there would be one in a state park. For fans of winter recreation, this is apparently a hotspot for skiing and snowshoeing, and I can see coming back for that. But probably not for camping in the summer, possibly in the fall when less buggy and less crowded
