Jorgen’s Hollow Campground is located forty miles southwest of Fargo, North Dakota. Click here for a map of the Jorgen’s Hollow Campground and Trails.
Jorgen’s Hollow Campground has 14 primitive campsites nestled within the oak savanna. Seven of those sites allow campers to have horses and seven sites are designated for campers without horses. Each campsite has a graveled pad, with a picnic table and fire ring. Campsites are open to anyone on a first-come, first-served basis. Potable water and vaulted toilets are available.
While at the campground, you can enjoy the area by hiking the Oak Leafor North Country National Scenic Trail, viewing wildlife, birding, identifying wildflowers, and many other activities. Trailheads are located in the campground.

.Built 3 years ago, Jorgen’s Hollow is a new campground that is in the Sheyenne Grasslands. Half the sites are for people with horses and half are for those without. During my 2 night stay, most sites were empty. If it fills up, there is a campground just down the roads a piece.
Sites are very different. Choose one in the shade or sun. Some have more space than others. There is a central hand pump for water. Vault restrooms are at each end. The North Country Trail goes right through camp. Hike (or ride your horse) it into the grasslands or the other way to join more trails.
There is no fee to camp here until the fall of 2018. We couldn’t pass up 2 free nights in a quiet and remote setting. Getting up early and out onto the trail in the cool morning let us relax as the day warmed up. A midnight walk let all the stars strut their stuff.
Thrre are horses and riders who camp here so be aware they added some noises to keep my dog interested. You might consider bringing your own water - the water from the pump has particulates in it. This is also a “pack it in, pack it out place” for now. Bring your trash out with you.
This place is a beautiful find!
