Very open but when you get to your spots they are nice and private. Really cool thing is when you want to have adult time the bar/restaurant is not far and you can all take a walk there and do that for the night if you want. Easy access to the water as well
This is a great campground that is well maintained. Elbow woods, sanish, and van hook loops all have 30/50 amp and water for campers, there is also a primitive loop. Elbow woods is more spaced out and has great views of the lake. Group spots here are fun but you need to book the day they come available to reserve or you will miss out!
While there were very few tent sites available, we had our choice of sites as we were the only tent campers. Bathrooms were great, the trails around the lake were great and the food at the marina was OK. This park is surrounded by beautiful lakes and fields of wheat. Shower was great.
Every year I head up to ND and make sure a camping trip to Lake Sakakawea is on the agenda. I always stay in the primitive no hook up section. It is nicely mowed (if you stay more than 3 days in a row there is a good chance they will mow around your site) and they also spray for bugs. Each site has a picnic table as well as a fire pit. There is good off-shore fishing as well as a swim beach with a bathroom. Nearby is a marina and store.
Great campground located right on Lake Sakakawea. Nearly every site has easy access to the water. Two boat ramps located at the campground and great shore access for fishing. Campground is primitive with vault toilets. Note that camp host does not accept registrations, all campers need to register through the Recreation.gov website.
This is a beautiful campground with friendly people. The modern sites are well maintained and showers and bathrooms are clean. There is a lot to do here and within short driving distance. Primitive sites are also very nice but the generator rule (off after 8:00 p.m.) is ridiculous. It is sweltering hot (thank goodness for nice breezes) and people are up playing and having fun until 11:00 p.m. It would be near perfect if generator use was more reasonable.
Absolutley love this campground! (Note this is the primitive section.) Primitive campsites are very spacious and most having sections of shade during the entire day. Clean and well kept primative toilets. Beach is amazing with little bay area that is calm even on windy days for the kayaker or paddleboarder. Boat dock with ample parking. A must stay for the water enthusiasts!
The campsites are spacious. There are few great hikes that are kid friendly. There is a swimming beach (quite rocky, but large) and there is usually another beach with red rocks (lots have leaf fossils!) that you can get to pending the water level. There is a nice marina if you bring a boat.
So we decided to do some camping in North Dakota the last week of november into decmeber. It was cold and we got caught in a snow storm. We survived it was ridiculous and hard core if i do say so myself. We did have a fishing tent with a wood stove..Because it was winter there were no amenities. But in the summer it would be a pretty sweet campground. But in the winter there was no one here and we got set up for the cold. I love camping in the winter but this was pushing our luck a little bit
I've been camping at this campground since I was a kid, and it's always been wonderful. It has something for everyone. A boat marina, a swimming beach, tent-only sites, primitive grounds, water and electrical sites, hiking trails, playgrounds, clean shower facilities and flushing toilets! Not to mention the outstanding views of Lake Sakakawea!
Bicycling along the Northern Tier, we stopped to spend the night in the Granville city park. The pipes froze over winter in the bathroom and were still not fixed. The mayor and plumber worked on fixing it well into the night. There was an outhouse available for us until they fixed the plumbing. At least they had a backup for us or it coud have been tough. The mosquitos were quite lively but they seemed to like the shade better than the sun. It was worth it to stay in the sun a little more to evade those pesky biters.
I am loving the way these small towns make their parks available to camp in. Most people in town will stop and talk with you. These are great opportunities that shouldn't be passed up.
This is a very well kept campground with clean bathrooms and showers, well maintained tent, camper, and RV sites, and excellent mountain biking and hiking trails. It also has lake front camping sites for both tents and campers. There are multiple swimming beaches on property, playgrounds, an ice cream and general store, and boat rentals available. Very enjoyable camping experience.
