“A quiet place to spend a few days”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2016

Overall Rating

While I don't think of this as a destination park, it was a great place to spend a few days while traveling through ND and MN. The small, shady campground is surrounded by meadows and borders the Buffalo River. There's a nice network of trails, but after two days we had walked them all. The swimming "pool" (which is actually a large hole that river water is pumped into), wasn't open because they needed to hire lifeguards. In short - not a lot to do at or around the campground.

At the time of our stay, there were only ever 2-3 other campers in the campground, which meant it was very quiet and peaceful. Didn't use the showers, but they looked serviceable,if not a little old.

This seemed the best option in proximity to Fargo, ND. Spaces are fairly tight for a state park in my opinion. This is a seasonal park as far as I can tell, meaning that during winter months when I was there, there were no services except for electric. When I was there the campground only had a few campers so site distance was not an issue. Its a decent option to explore Fargo, ND and other surrounding areas but surely will not make my list as a top Minnesota State Park.
