Urban RV Park

This the most urban state park campground in MN. It’s within East Grand Forks. Not quiet and felt like a town of RVs. Great amenities and coffee nearby, not wild.

An RV camping experience, unless you're walking

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.

Campground with a history

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.

Small town campground near Hwy 2

This is another typical small town campground located within a city park. The park has large shade trees, playground and picnic shelter, and shares ball fields with the adjacent school. It is clearly a nice outdoor community gathering space that also has an area where camping is allowed. The “campground” includes a horseshoe drive along which a few RV’s could park, but there are no hookups. There is an adjacent grassy tenting area that is very nice for tents, but be advised that the only “facilities” are a portapotty, albeit a clean and new one! This is of course would be a good place for a scout group overnight or a family reunion campout, but is not a vacation destination campground. If you are on a roadtrip travelling somewhere on Hwy 2 this would be a safe, clean, quiet spot to stop overnight, being convenient to highway access but far enough away not to hear road noise all night. The leafy setting is peaceful too, and you can get gas and supplies in town

Adequate city park campground

This is a small campground in the city park in the village of MacIntosh. The city park itself is well manicured and well maintained, with community ball fields and picnic areas and playground. It is clearly a much loved community gathering place. The campground within it, though well maintained, has some drawbacks. The area is very open, with few trees and really no shade. It is also located immediately adjacent to Highway 2, a busy 4-lane highway with truck noise, and risky for kids or pets if they wandered away from the campsite. There are basic hookups for RVs if desired, and a dump station with non-potable water. At present time, due to the Covid pandemic, the bathroom facilities are closed for the duration. There is a gas station adjacent to the park that has public facilities. This would not be a destination campground unless you were coming to McIntosh for a family reunion or other town event. It might also be a quick and easy overnight place to camp if you are travelling some en route somewhere else via Hwy 2.

Worth checking out; bring bug spray

Nice little campgrounds. Our favorite part was checking out the Old Mill & settler’s cabin. Unfortunately, the bridge & swimming pond were closed. Electric & water hook ups on the inner loop. LOTS of mosquitos when we visited - bring bug spray & extra bug spray! Great little self serve firewood spot in the campsite. Kept clean. Trails were neat, but we spent minimal time on them due to the bugs. Playground is a swing set.

Great beach

No electricity, restrooms are very basic. Camping has limited capacity but they do keep them very clean.

Great Lake but it can get quite busy at the campground

We camp here every year. We enjoy trout fishing and swimming. The lake is a spring fed lake so the water is pretty cold. I usually float on a air mattress. This campsite can get pretty busy and some parent don’t supervise their kids very closely. Management does enforce quiet hours and no ATVs are allowed. Most campsites are up the hill and can be quite a walk to the lake. There’s security during the busy season. Electric and water hook ups are available. Management is very friendly.

Very Nice Campground

This is an in the city campground that is clean and well maintained. Showers are free and seem to last forever on one push of the button. It’s walking distance close to restaurants, a movie theater and other stores/shops. It’s also set along the Greater Grand Forks greenway with miles of paved bike/walking/jogging paths on both sides of the river. Sites are pretty large and open some more shaded than others but it really seems to be used most by larger motor homes, 5th wheels and travel trailers. If you are a tenter you can camp but you are not going to be out in the secluded woods , you will see your fellow campers and their rigs. The campground is quiet for an in city campground and there is some car/road noise but it’s more like white background noise that really did not intrude on our 3 night stay. If you want a nice campground to spend a few day this is a great spot, if you need privacy and seclusion and miles of wide open wilderness pass it by. Oh and for the kids and young at heart there ice cream truck that travels through a couple times a day/evening…

long lake

It's a pretty place to stay at for the clear lake is beautiful when the sun hits it and the wildlife is everywhere
