Great Place!

We stayed here overnight on a long journey & were very impressed with the friendly and clean environment! Nice shrubbery and trees throughout, a pool during the summer season, dog park, and playground. Will definitely be staying here again.

Open & not very busy in late October

Passing through ND in late October and needed a place to stay and this campground worked out well. The folks were accommodating. They don’t take credit cards though. The campground was clean and RV sites graveled and level. The water was turned off due to the recent freezing weather. The associated bar and grill were filled with locals. Bison herd and western novelist Louis L’Amour birthplace near by.

It’s Fall in ND!

Perfect fall getaway! We stayed on a Sunday to Monday, prior to a college visit with our son. No crowd, and had the campground and fall leaves all to ourselves. Sites are for the most part a nice distance from each other and many have asphalt pads. Bathrooms were clean and suitable.

Shaded and quiet

Stayed a night here on a Wednesday and there were only 5 other people. Host said it was going to be full over the weekend. It was very quiet for us. Lots of shade trees. It is not technically “lakeside” but about a half mile walk across the highway to get to the lake. It is well kept. Playground was nice and our kiddos loved it. Would stay here again!

Beautiful Riverfront

Stayed for free, but I really dont think it was supposed to be based on the county website… oops lol but the sheriff that passed by my tent paid us no mind. The sounds of the river were great, but ruined by the sounds of the vehicles going further south to the fishing and boat docks. About 1am is when the vehicles going by stopped until about 7am so that wasn't too fun. I would stay here again, but not in the middle of summer in a tent. It didn't get cold enough to sleep until 2am

It’s a great place to stop

Perfect little in town camping.

Great campground!

We stayed at General Sibley campground on our family vacation in 2018. Large campground & we were pretty much in our own area. Frisbee golf course & playground. Nice first stop on our journey!

Great campground!

This campground was a great stopping place on our way West! We stayed on a weekday and we practically had the place to ourselves. We tented which has its own area. There were pit toilets near our site and they were very clean and well maintained. The sites were spacious, grassy and shaded by big cottonwood trees. We definitely recommend this beautiful park!

Nice next to the river spot

Has electric and primitive both priced decent has nice tree coverage and is next to the river and has some spot where you can go in the river at

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.
