This recreation area is part of Sakakawea Lake
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.
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!
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!!
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!
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!
