This is a primitive campground five miles into the north unit of Theodore Roosevelt NP. The closest city, Watford, is fifteen miles. There are normally 50 pull-through sites but due to the flood, 25 sites were closed for repairs. At the entrance to the campground is a dump and water fill station. The bathroom with flush toilets is open during summer season. Most of the sites are large with surrounding trees and bushes. There is a picnic table and pedestal grille at each site. We were unable to get telephone reception with Verizon. There is an emergency phone line at the camp office. There are several nature trails nearby. We would have stayed more than 2 nights but the bugs and no a/c made it less. desirable. We would love to return at a milder time of year. The cost reflects senior pass discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A jewel in the NPS campgrounds if you are self contained. Buffalo & deer are right in the campground, neat. It is a beautiful park, enjoyed our visit and wish we had stayed a week. One night is not enough for this park. We enjoyed it very much and will return one day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
GPS N47.59393 W103.33521 Very nice dry camping. Golden age rate. Watch out for Buffalo in the campground. I liked the North unit of TR park better than the South unit, but others may disagree. TR park is more scenic than SD Badlands NP. More color. See all three if you can. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a wonderful place to camp. Many of the sites were fine for our 40 foot coach. It's a small campground and quiet most of the time. This campground probably gets less use than the one in the South Unit. The campground host was very proactive and made it a point to keep the rules enforced. This makes for a very enjoyable stay! The cell phone and air card didn't work here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A super Nat. PK. campground. Generators are permitted at certain hours. Many deer and buffalo in the campground and park. There is a water fill and dump station. Verizon cell was weak. This is a come back park. Rate was with golden Age Pass. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We got satellite TV but had no Verizon cell or broadband for our computer. The comfort station was old but clean. As one of the other reviews stated, there was construction on the road inside the park and it was very dusty and they closed off some of it for 2 days, so check with the Visitor's Center first. The sites are very spacious and nicely paved and level. We also were greeted by 2 huge bison as we checked in! And the next morning we woke up to 8 more including 2 babies that were grazing all around our motor home which was quite cool. This is a great DRY camping spot. The only reason we gave it an 8 was there were very few water spigots to get water. We enjoyed this campground and would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camp fee reflects Golden Age discount. We were greeted at the entrance station by about 20 Bison who took their time crossing the road. The Park Service is repairing the road inside the park and it was VERY dusty. Our intent was to stay here one night to tour the north T.R. National Park, which we did. We selected a nice site in Juniper that was level and had some shade from a Cottonwood. Had satellite reception buy no cell phone/air card. (We did have cell phone reception outside the campground). Great scenery inside the campground, and very quiet during day and night. We did not have to have A/C during our stay. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All sites appeared level and large enough for our 30 ft class A and the road was easy to navigate and in good condition. No hook-ups, no showers and simple bathrooms. We liked the quiet, peaceful, wooded nature of most of the sites. We would recommend staying here for a night or two while visiting the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Upon entering, you have to find your own site and self register. The sites are small and mostly made up of oil workers and families. There are only about 10 sites available for RV's, the rest being tents. The site was absolutely level, with no grass, and very small. The signs say the park is patrolled by Watford City Police, but we never saw that being done. We never felt unsafe, though. This park served our purpose of visiting both units of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, but the south unit was about 80 miles away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The previous reviews are accurate but they didn't mention that the electrical section is on a small paved parking lot with RVs parked very close together. The attendant is not always there so if you just have a motor home with no car, you cannot leave without likely losing your site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been here at this park since it opened on April 10. The park supervisor is a very respectable and polite man. The park is kept very clean and also now has a camp host on site to help you with all questions. They are very family and pet friendly. They are doing many improvements to this park which will make it an even more wonderful place to stay. The playgrounds are great. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice community park that includes a small campground/RV park. Disc golf, playground, horseshoe pits are available in the park. A paved walking/biking trail leads right into the park. There are no sewer hook-ups, but there is a sanitary dump station on site. This was a great place for a night or two with close proximity to Teddy Roosevelt Nat'l Park North Unit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the heart of the Bakkan oil basin. Most residents are long term residents. This park has successfully stayed open the several winters. For self contained rigs only. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I am sorry to say I would never return to the campground again. The owner was very unfriendly. She yelled at me to help park the trailer when my husband does not expect me to. He is great at it alone. Told me if I was going to be in her park, I had to work. She knew we had the dog but threw us out 3 days later because of our dog, which did nothing. She also told us she had people that would pay her more for the spot. I wish it would have been better, because it is a nice looking park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly owner, helpful pointing out points of interests and local businesses. Very large lots with choice of shade or satellite friendly. Can walk to stores and diners with city street in front and farm in back. Lot's to see and do on day trips, prompting me to stop every summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly owner. Grassy sites with a few small trees. No cable and no TV off the antenna. Need satellite if staying here any length of time. Tons of mosquitos, the owner doesn't spray for them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was the most unpleasant experience that we have ever had while traveling around the country. The campground itself was clean but the sites were uneven. The owner shut the water off almost every night without warning, around 7pm and would knock on your door very early in the morning to give you instructions on what she wanted you to do for the day. There were very few people staying in the park at the time we were there and we felt as if we were being watched all the time. We even found the owner wandering around our camper in the evening, but we have no idea why? We will not stay there again, and would not recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a no frills campground perfectly suited for a day or two. No bathrooms, showers, or laundry but long pull-thru sites with easy access and very friendly people. Park is grassy and quiet but many sites slope from right to left a bit. We stayed a couple of nights while visiting the north unit of T. Roosevelt National Park and sitting out some thunderstorms and strong winds. It was perfect for that and we'd stay again under similar circumstances. Passport America park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
