I went to the SE end of the lake, so never saw the NW sites. From Bismarck ND, almost the entire drive is paved if you stay on ND-25; my Garmin told me to take gravel roads part of the way. The gravel roads only saved ~ 6.2 miles. I didn't stay overnight because of the lake flies. I didn't have adequate (well, any) bug defenses, as I was sleeping in the back of my pickup (visiting a friend in the hospital in Bismarck). This was a huge mistake; I will absolutely be back someday with of course bug dope. There is background noise from the power plant, but it didn't bother me at all.

There is dispersed camping on the east side of the lake at the south end and dispersed camping on the west side of the lake at the north end. The Minnkota Power Coop is on the lake. The roads are packed dirt and gravel. It might be muddy if it rains. It was dry while we were there. Spots aren’t designated with a sign, just find a spot that fits you. Some spots are more secluded than others. Some spots have fire rings. Porta potties at the boat ramps at each side. You cannot drive completely around the lake due to the Power Plant. Access is off of Hwy 25.
