Beautiful large park ringed with camping

We stopped here on the drive through the northern states. Every city park is different and this one is great. There is a really big picnic area. All around the outside edge are campsites. There is water and electric(for higher amp plugs). The restroom is simple but it has a shower- so unexpected! 

A high school baseball team was stranded here for a bit. Their bus overheated. At least the town put together a wonderful place to relax while they wait for another ride. 

For only $15 the nights stay was perfect. It is a bit warm today but some shade helps. 

Note: Sunday evening is lawn mowing day. We bunched up our camp and they came as close as they could. It’s nice to see this so well maintained.

Fisherman’s Paradise

If you enjoy fishing, this is the place for you. The park is located on Devil’s Lake which is a fisherman’s paradise regardless of time of year. The park office resembles more of a fishing store than it does a park office, and the fish cleaning area was always full with people and their catch from that day. We stayed in a very private site (primitive site 64) right next to the lake. There were plenty of trees for shade and we felt secluded even though the campground was full. There are more open areas which seemed popular with the RV crowd- 3 separate campgrounds full. There is a boat launch as well. The walk to the bathroom was a little far from our site, but the larger bathrooms near the more popular RV areas were clean and had showers.

Nice, quiet, clean and cheap

Stopped at this campground on our way across the state.  It was a great place to be for the night.  It was just far enough away from the I-94 and the railroad tracks that we got a quiet night sleep.  Bathrooms were clean, lots of picnic tables although they are in the park, not right next to the campsite.  Hookups available and a great playground for the kids.  Only $15 for the night which includes water and electric.

Stayed two nights at a primitive camp site very nice place

This campground is very clean. Thanks to the wardens for letting us know about storms in our area and where we go for shelter. Really enjoyed our stay

Great spot for an overnight stay or more.

Nice big pull thru spots. Close to I 94, but the traffic noise isn’t too bad.

Awesome fishing

Nice flat tenting area with plenty of shade and plenty of views. It was a blast there

Nice well kept campground

It was raining when we arrived so access road muddy! They add added some sand on areas and we had 4 wheel drive! Owner very friendly, stayed an extra day to rest on our across country trip to West Yellowstone!

Very cool little town

Small, quiet town. Primitive camping for free in nice city park, with a super cool, very old bar right up the street. Great cafe in town too. Full RV hookups behind Fire Dept for a fee. Park is on edge of town, so it’s very private even though it’s in town.

Clean park near city swimming pool.

It is well kept. Has a playground and a walking bridge to the swimming pool. Fishing in river. Comfort station. 701-947-2461

This site is run by the city. No option for that.

neat park

wonderful little stay for a wedding weekend at the campground event center. camped in primitive spot and we're pleasantly surprised by the large size of our spot. easy to pick a more private, or communal spot as you prefer. bath houses are kept clean and are rather nice. dog park is nothing more than a little fenced off piece of ground, but gets the job done and allows for off leash time. the event center is really nice with kitchen, bathrooms, outdoor seating, and playground. lots to do at this lake campground. staff was very helpful and accommodating with the event and camping.

there was smoke blown from the wild fires during our visit. made for some interesting sunrises and sunsets.

Super Clean with an Older Crowd

Maticulatly cared for campground, safe, friendly, a nice place to rest, small but pretty walking trail that the kids can bike. Mosquitoes in August.

Poorly behaved campers

Have to give this a low review from the experience we had while staying the night of July 6th. It was a full campground and might of been nice with the exception of several groups staying at the campground. Teens staying up till 3pm being loud and racing around on a golf cart. Intoxicated adults taking lap after lap around the campground in the back of a pickup yelling and swearing at campers that didn't wave back to them. Another group in the campground setting off fireworks until midnight. Zero attempts by camp host to quiet these individuals. Our group of Scouts were besides themselves and have no desire to ever camp in North Dakota again. Other wise this might have been a nice place to stay.

Quiet and Clean!!

Quiet place with very friendly staff. Don’t forget the great eats from the Dak.

Lake life and amenities galore

This resort only has about 16 reservable campsites and several cabins. The rest of the resort contains a massive hotel and many seasonal campsites. The sites are pretty close together which is handy if you are camping with a group, but less than ideal if you are on your own. Excellent restrooms with showers. There is a bar/restaurant and convenience store on site. If you are into lake life this is the place for you as it is conveniently located on Devils Lake which contains great fishing and lots of areas to explore. The resort contains two swimming beaches if you’d rather stay on shore. Overall, I highly recommend.

Simple site in farmland

Not far from the wildlife refuge and highway 94. Very simple campground, really only fishing here. This was a simple stayover for us and it worked for that…I wouldn’t recommend it as a destination unless you want to fish all day.

Yay: full bait house and cafe, swimming (not the best swimming ever), cabin options too.

Nay: it’s deep in farm country so doesn’t feel as much like a park, small sites

Surprise: the sunrise over the lake made this memorable. No idea what "Toad Suck Ferry Pool" means lol.

Fish fish fish

This park is on an island in the middle of a beautiful huge lake. You just drive out over a bridge, very pretty. If you don’t want to camp you can use it just to launch your boat for a day of fishing or use their very easy hiking trails. Close to the reservation and various Native American cultural areas.

Yay: shady trees, huge sites, some sites are fairly private, really clean.

Nay: kinda in the middle of nowhere, some sites are extremely open and sunny, not great for swimming.

Surprise: There can be flooding. In the winter I believe they have cross-country skiing?

Jamestown reservoir campground

We spent 43 days here last summer. Well kept campground. Hosts are the nicest people you will meet and extremely helpful. You will have to change sites every 14 days if you are going to be staying a long time. Book early as it is a popular area. Full bathroom with showers. Hosts keep it clean but unfortunately some people are pigs.
