This campground had easy pull-thru sites. Although little close together, the sites were pretty level, had trees, and had full-hookups. We could tell that many of our neighbors were permanent residents, and after talking to a few of them learned that many of them worked the oil fields. They got up and left early in the morning, and didn’t return until the evening. The local road commission is located right behind the campground, and they drive large trucks and machinery thru the campground roads to access it. This meant loud vehicles passing very frequently, at least along the back drive that we were located on.
The campground was conveniently located across the street from the grocery store. There was a clubhouse with a common kitchen, laundry (although the dryer was out of order), couches, games, and tables. The normal rates for this campground are $20 but with Passport America we got 50% off for our one night, so for $10, I wasn’t going to complain.
Nearby Towns & Attractions
Nearby is Giant Lake Sakakawea, 15 miles North in the heart of Lewis and Clark country which is supposed to have great fishing. We saw lots of people with boats in this area.
About 20 minutes away is the Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site.
For what we needed, it was great. We were looking for a quick overnight place with full hookups that was cheap. We also needed a laundry day, and even though the dryer was out of commission the dry, hot, North Dakota wind made up for it on the clothesline.
Would not recommend staying for longer than 1 or 2 nights due to the large machinery and the distance to nearby attractions. You could find a nicer campground near the lake or the river for extended stays.
