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.

Potential for 5 stars

This place is lovely. It would be especially nice if you had kids to entertain. There is plenty to do here. Bathrooms are clean. We had three small issues. The first issue could have been a big problem but because the park was pretty empty it wasn’t. The very friendly lady that made our reservation got my name, phone number, date of arrival and price all wrong! Perhaps she has dyslexia? It all worked out because the park wasn’t full but if you book here check all the details a few times. The wi-fi password was given to us but we kept getting the error message that the word-fi was unavailable. The only other thing that was annoying was at 5 am I thought someone was mowing the lawn. Turned out be someone was driving around the park in a vehicle that sounded like a lawnmower. It wasn’t a very big vehicle and it had yellow lights on it. Maybe some kind of city vehicle? No more sleep after that. Oh well we got an early start out of there because it woke us up.

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.

Community and county campground

This is an “event” campground clearly designed for the convenience of county fair attendees, as it is wedged conveniently right in between the Kittson County Fairgrounds and the Warren City Park. However, the location and quality of the campground would make it pretty good for family camping at non-Fair times as well. There are lots of sites with hookups for RVs, though they are pretty close together. Tenting sites would be less crowded. The campground is right adjacent to a Fair arena and stables, so easy to stay close to your horse or whatever at rodeo time or Fair time. But also smack dab next to the beautiful Warren City Park, which is treed and shady, and is complete with nice swimming pool, beautiful playgrounds, well kept picnic shelters, an enjoyable disk golf course, etc. The town is nice and has several options for shopping, supplies, meals and more. I wouldnt necessarily come here as a destination vacation, but if coming to town for an event it is a great place to stay

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.

Nice midway point between Fargo and Grand Forks

Loved the full hookup sites. No firepot or staff on-site

Nice Quiet Campground

Great campground for a quiet weekend trip. We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The majority of the sites are seasonal but there are a handful of nightly sites and a few tent sites. The host was very helpful and friendly and does a great job maintaining the grounds. The bathroom and shower facilities are top notch! There is a small swimming beach and nice fishing pier. The lake itself is nice sized and holds pike, panfish and walleyes. There is a large picnic shelter and a small playground for kids. The city of Fosston is a short drive for anything you might need! Fosston is a small but thriving community with nice shops, good eats and a neat movie theater.

A side note: I highly recommend this park in the Fall when the leaves are turning. Just the short drive through the woods from the highway is worth the trip!

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…
