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
Kinda cool that there's a campground just plopped in the middle of a city park. Nice that it's a quick walk to playground, trails (and the pumpkin patch/corn maze in the fall!)
FHU, but very tight sites. Clean campground, nice people running it.
This is a nice campground, I’m sure it would be more enjoyable in the warmer seasons. Has everything you need to have a pleasurable stay except for laundry facilities. Full hook ups for the RV’er, tent camping, boat ramp with docks, playgrounds, restrooms with showers, personal garbage can picked up weekly, friendly staff, fire rings and bbq grills. All this comes with beautiful views that over look the reservoir and best of all open year around. For the cold weather campers the shower floors are heated! Can’t believe I got all this for $500 month plus $35 vehicle fee.
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.
Had a great time here!! Had two pull in spots next to each other (met Gma & Gpa there) &, therefore, had a huge yard for the kids to play in!! Lots of spots - some more in the open & others more secluded. A bit of a walk to the beach from the west loop, but not bad. Beach was nice - sand, sectioned off swim area, & concessions were open.
We did not stay here camping, but drove over from Turtle River state park (no swim beach there). The beach was great - nice sand, grass area, & nice water!
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.
