Was 15 to tent camp  nice park  your away from the rv in your own slice of grass nice bathroom with shower's had no bug's at all was foggy and mist over in the am from the water

Best of both worlds

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

Nice place

Great campground. If you have a chance head into garrison and do some shopping on their main street. They have some great shops there. The park is wonderful and the sites are roomy.

One of our favorite places to camp!

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!

Great park on Lake Sakakawea

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.

Love the primitive camp area!

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.

Gorgeous , peaceful little slice of the Dakota’s

This is my favorite campground in North Dakota ! Always clean and neat. The waters are beautiful. National fish hatchery nearby, along with the Garrison dam. Breath taking views from the Elbowwoods loop!

Beautiful views!

The sites are well spaced, some with beautiful views of the lake. Great breezes from the water. There is a marina with a fish cleaning station and a store. Loved this campground!!

Quiet, primitive campground with large campsites

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.

Clean, we'll maintained, and convenient.

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.

Tranquil

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!

Spacious Sites, Several Hikes, and Gorgeous Lake Views

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.

Wow was it cold...and snowy

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

Cheers!

Clean, Quiet Facilities

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!

Granville City Park

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.

Fort Stevenson State Park, ND

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.
