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.

Quiet shady campground

We camped here on a weekday and had the whole place to ourselves. Quiet (other than distant freeway noise) well maintained, accommodating camp host. I imagine on weekend this place might be crowded with 50+ sites somewhat close together so might avoid… but was great on a Wed. Lots of trees and green space. Has water and electrical hook ups.

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!

It’s a great place to stop

Perfect little in town camping.

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.

Nice, quiet, clean and cheap

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.

Great spot for an overnight stay or more.

Nice big pull thru spots. Close to I 94, but the traffic noise isn’t too bad.

Friendly campground

Great little campground with friendly Rangers. We have stayed here on hunting trips for 3 years now and it’s great every time. The cabins are awesome and very adorable.

Nice well kept campground

It was raining when we arrived so access road muddy! They add added some sand on areas and we had 4 wheel drive! Owner very friendly, stayed an extra day to rest on our across country trip to West Yellowstone!

Very cool little town

Small, quiet town. Primitive camping for free in nice city park, with a super cool, very old bar right up the street. Great cafe in town too. Full RV hookups behind Fire Dept for a fee. Park is on edge of town, so it’s very private even though it’s in town.
