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.
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.
This is a pretty good spot. When we were there in June the campground was having a Halloween celebration and my daughter loved it. There’s good trails to walk and it’s generally quiet. Sites aren’t very private, but the people were nice. It seemed to be more of a “locals” campground.
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.
Wifi is at the visitors center, there’s almost 20 miles of trails to walk on and the scenery at night is beautiful! Sodbuster Days, Halloween in June and Christmas in July is a must. Also the historical building in the area is a cool thing to see!
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.
Very green park with alot of history, including a preserved farm about early white settlers. We met some people who were staying here with their horses - how fun! Wide open green spaces, lovely. We didn’t explore much of the park unfortunately. We really wished we had rented a canoe or kayak (from the park) but it was a holiday weekend so they were all gone by the time we sauntered out of the tent near noon.
Yay: basic cafe, easy canoeing, nature center, educational, easy hikes.
Nay: campsites are not private or shady, only a few are next to the water.
Surprise: the camp staff were especially great with lots of stories to entertain the preschooler and grandma!
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.
