Primitive Site 88

My girls and I had a great day and night at TRSP. Tons of trails for biking and hiking. Some of the biking was too hilly for my 7 year old though. Our campsite was #88 which was a great spot. Nice and secluded along the river. I didn’t bring a cart though so we had to wall back and forth from the parking lot since it isn’t a full drive in site. There weren’t any carts available to bring your stuff to your site. I will know better next time. Very quiet overall but you could hear traffic at night on Hwy 2. There is also perfect trees for hanging your hammock. Will love to come back this winter for snowshoeing for sure and again for camping!

out of the way nice

Had to ask to find but nice little out of the way spot had alittle gravel road to get back to it not bad seemed well token care of  the site manager was very nice.

Hikers Paradise!

Such a well maintained park! There are so many trails to explore. Great shelters all over the park as well as rental cabins.

Customer Service!!

Family owned campground and they make you fell like family also. They come around every evening with firewood for sale and inform you of any inclement weather. Water, electric and showers. They do have kyak and tubing with rentals for both. River tubing is fantastic there. Small store on property. Very well kept property. A must camp destination.

Very Nice Campground

This is an in the city campground that is clean and well maintained. Showers are free and seem to last forever on one push of the button. It’s walking distance close to restaurants, a movie theater and other stores/shops. It’s also set along the Greater Grand Forks greenway with miles of paved bike/walking/jogging paths on both sides of the river. Sites are pretty large and open some more shaded than others but it really seems to be used most by larger motor homes, 5th wheels and travel trailers. If you are a tenter you can camp but you are not going to be out in the secluded woods , you will see your fellow campers and their rigs. The campground is quiet for an in city campground and there is some car/road noise but it’s more like white background noise that really did not intrude on our 3 night stay. If you want a nice campground to spend a few day this is a great spot, if you need privacy and seclusion and miles of wide open wilderness pass it by. Oh and for the kids and young at heart there ice cream truck that travels through a couple times a day/evening…

An Oasis in a Wasteland

This campground is gorgeous, and they have plenty of hiking trails all around the park. It is reasonably priced to camp here, and it is never crowded!

Beautiful State Park

Turtle River State park has beautiful mature ash trees for a nice shady camp spot. There are numerous sites with water and electricity with central location shower houses. The camp sites are large, level and secluded.There are lovely wide trails for biking and hiking and a river runs through the park. There are also walk-in sites, cabins and open tenting sites.

Urban Camping

Nice facilities but very little privacy and shade. Very large playground and pool over the hill from campground as well as many smaller playgrounds throughout the park. HC Trail takes you through town and through a cool tunnel.

Fab HC Trail in July!

Park is on the smaller side compared to other state parks but was great with a very nice beach. Scenic prairie trail with tons of wild life to watch like butterflies, frogs, chipmunks, grasshoppers, and caterpillars. Wild Raspberries grow along the trail as well.
