About

State Park

Named for Captain Duncan Graham, one of the first known settlers in the area, Grahams Island is located in North Dakota’s Devils Lake. Located approximately 100 miles west of Grand Forks, this is the state’s largest natural lake—yet its shoreline and surface area constantly change due to its being in a closed drainage basin. The island is accessible via a bridge from the north; the state park is located a couple miles from the bridge, on the southeast point of the island. The park provides a year-round recreation destination for every kind of outdoor enthusiast, but fishing and water play are the most popular. Many just come to Grahams Island to kick back and enjoy a taste of “Island Life.”

With more than 150 campsites available, Grahams Island has an option for every type of camper. Spacious pull-through sites provide partial and full hookups for RV and trailer campers, primitive sites offer wooded seclusion for tent campers, and numerous group sites can accommodate large parties. The park even offers a few partially-furnished cabins. Campsites are equipped with picnic tables and fire rings, and the campground features drinking water, flush and vault toilets, showers, picnic shelters, playgrounds, dog park, and sports courts. Dogs are welcome, but must remain leashed unless in designated areas. Camping is available year-round, however some facilities may be closed during the winter season; sites are $17–$30/night; cabins $60/night; reservations accepted.

Large and fairly shallow, Devils Lake is a hotspot for fishing, including some of the state’s best ice fishing. The park hosts several regional and national fishing tournaments, but casting for walleye, perch, white bass, and northern pike is a year-round activity. Fishing services in the park include a bait shop, boat launch, marine gas pump, and fish cleaning station. Other lake activities include paddling, sailing or relaxing at the swim beach. During the summer season, 2 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails are available for exploring the islands local woods, and in winter, 3 miles of cross-country ski trails are groomed for winter swooshing.

Lovey

Open year round. Per Ranger Water is available year round on sites 1-6, but won’t show up on website. Sites by online reservation only. Arrived about 8pm. Maybe 6 other campers, mostly fishermen. Beautiful place, lovely campgrounds. Electric only at this time. Pit toilets. No water. All sites are spacious and level with gravel pad and grassy lawn. Lots of pull through sites. One night only for us. $42.00 4-27-24

Nice Campground in Devils Lake Area

This is a nice State campground in the Devils Lake Area. It has wooded and semi private sites in the primitive tent area. One part of the camper trailer area can be fairly wide open. Great place to launch your boat, fish station to clean your catch and nice swim area and playground for the kids. Devils Lake area itself can be somewhat of a boring area unless you love fishing

Well kept park

Stayed one night, 10/16/22 on a road trip. Not as close to the 2 as I expected but it wasn’t a bad drive, even at dark. It was a 7$ fee to enter, and a separate online transaction for a campsite and they charged a processing fee. But seeing as many campsites are closed in October we were just happy to be there. Very large campsite. Driving around all the campsites had reserved tags hung on them, but online they were available and there were no people in any of the sites? We stayed in the Primitive camp, down to the water and off to the left. The camp was a little confusing to negotiate at night, but after a couple of missed roads we found a spot. Fire pit and picnic table. There seemed to be plenty of trees for wind protection and privacy. There was a fenced in DOG PARK, which was AWESOME! Lots of amenities for the in season camper, we still had access to the vault toilets, and water was available up by the camp store but we only knew that because we waited until the morning and asked the person running the camp store.

A super tidy, private place

Howard campground has giant, shaded, very private spots. We could barely see our neighbors. Our site had pasture land behind all the trees, and the sunsets were amazing.

We loved the dog park and mowed trails. Most of the park was immaculate. From the mowing of the grass to the cleaning of the shower house.

Our only 2 gripes were that 1) there are no dumpsters in Howard campground. You have to drive/walk your trash out to the dump station. And 2) the deep toilets weren’t cleaned. Poop appeared on the floor the second day of our stay. That poop remained for the entire week. Toilet paper was replenished and trashes were dumped, but the poop remained.

Busy, Friendly, Accomodating

We were originally going to spend two nights at Grahams, but we enjoyed the island vibe and decided to add two additional nights to our stay. The park was full, but managed to place us in a few different sites! We were totally fine with packing up the camper and moving around, it gave us more experience and reason to work on our communication and process. There was a large influx of fisherman and a large boat ramp. We wanted to swim, but stuck with walking in the water as the swim area was busy with the sun shine.

Beautiful park with boating access and beach

Well kept park. We stayed in the Ziebach campground. It has trees, water and electricity. There is another campground with full h/u but no shade and costs more. There is also fully shaded primitive tent camping on the water. There is a sanitary dump and small store. Great shower house. Very clean and quiet. Many boaters there is a ramp there.

Fisherman’s Paradise

If you enjoy fishing, this is the place for you. The park is located on Devil’s Lake which is a fisherman’s paradise regardless of time of year. The park office resembles more of a fishing store than it does a park office, and the fish cleaning area was always full with people and their catch from that day. We stayed in a very private site (primitive site 64) right next to the lake. There were plenty of trees for shade and we felt secluded even though the campground was full. There are more open areas which seemed popular with the RV crowd- 3 separate campgrounds full. There is a boat launch as well. The walk to the bathroom was a little far from our site, but the larger bathrooms near the more popular RV areas were clean and had showers.

neat park

wonderful little stay for a wedding weekend at the campground event center. camped in primitive spot and we're pleasantly surprised by the large size of our spot. easy to pick a more private, or communal spot as you prefer. bath houses are kept clean and are rather nice. dog park is nothing more than a little fenced off piece of ground, but gets the job done and allows for off leash time. the event center is really nice with kitchen, bathrooms, outdoor seating, and playground. lots to do at this lake campground. staff was very helpful and accommodating with the event and camping.

there was smoke blown from the wild fires during our visit. made for some interesting sunrises and sunsets.

Fish fish fish

This park is on an island in the middle of a beautiful huge lake. You just drive out over a bridge, very pretty. If you don’t want to camp you can use it just to launch your boat for a day of fishing or use their very easy hiking trails. Close to the reservation and various Native American cultural areas.

Yay: shady trees, huge sites, some sites are fairly private, really clean.

Nay: kinda in the middle of nowhere, some sites are extremely open and sunny, not great for swimming.

Surprise: There can be flooding. In the winter I believe they have cross-country skiing?
