Pelican Point Landing and Campground is located on the west shore of picturesque Jamestown Reservoir. This lake provides opportunities for all types of water activities in a native prairie setting.
Jamestown Reservoir offers numerous recreational opportunities. Water enthusiasts can enjoy boating, water skiing, canoeing, fishing and swimming. This family-friendly area also has playground equipment, sand volleyball, a fishing pier and covered picnic shelters.
Pelican Point campground has 56 RV sites all with electrical and water hook-ups. Some sites also have sewer hook-ups. There are four sites with concrete pads and parking for visitors with accessibility needs. Picnic tables and campfire rings are available at all sites. In addition to the RV sites, there are many primitive tent locations as well as four sleeping cabins.
Pit toilets are located throughout the campground. The bathhouse has flush toilets and shower facilities. A fish cleaning station is available. Two covered shelters can be used for group activities.
The full-service concession building offers home-cooked meals, snacks, fuel, ice, bait, firewood, "off-sale" beer and other supplies. Visitors can enjoy a meal indoors or outside on the patio. The building also has public restrooms.
Facing the shoreline of Jamestown Reservoir, the campground is nestled in woody draws which are a unique feature of the North Dakota landscape and support naturally growing trees and shrubs. The woody draws meld into grasslands of the North American Plains providing habitat for many wildlife species.
A short drive is all it takes to access other recreation opportunities. Hikers and mountain bikers will find over 28 miles of trails. There is a 2-mile long paved multi-use path, Little Britches Fishing Pond and an OWLS trail at the south end of Jamestown Reservoir.
The City of Jamestown is just 6 miles away and offers restaurants, movie theaters, tourist attractions and shopping.

Have to give this a low review from the experience we had while staying the night of July 6th. It was a full campground and might of been nice with the exception of several groups staying at the campground. Teens staying up till 3pm being loud and racing around on a golf cart. Intoxicated adults taking lap after lap around the campground in the back of a pickup yelling and swearing at campers that didn't wave back to them. Another group in the campground setting off fireworks until midnight. Zero attempts by camp host to quiet these individuals. Our group of Scouts were besides themselves and have no desire to ever camp in North Dakota again. Other wise this might have been a nice place to stay.
Quiet place with very friendly staff. Don’t forget the great eats from the Dak.
Not far from the wildlife refuge and highway 94. Very simple campground, really only fishing here. This was a simple stayover for us and it worked for that…I wouldn’t recommend it as a destination unless you want to fish all day.
Yay: full bait house and cafe, swimming (not the best swimming ever), cabin options too.
Nay: it’s deep in farm country so doesn’t feel as much like a park, small sites
Surprise: the sunrise over the lake made this memorable. No idea what "Toad Suck Ferry Pool" means lol.
