  • A beautiful small campground to stay in. Great view of Patterson Lake. Most sites have some privacy from bushes. Like most camp sites, there is a train nearby (in this case behind the sites) which run regularly. Very quiet. Water pressure could be much better so we reported that on June 20. Only $26 per night for campers. Close to downtown Dickinson. Highly recommend. Kudos to Tobin and Lisa at the front office from us 2 Floridians-always polite and accommodating. P.S. I have tried 3x to post photos here but they will not work. It might be the slow wifi service where I'm at in Montana now since my Sprint service and Hot Spot will not work in ND & MT. I've maxed out my 100 MB of roaming for the month of June so sorry no pics then. (Sprint does not care to accommodate those of us who travel far, frequently, or out of the country.) THANK YOU!!
  • Very nice place to go! Pavilion area is a good place to have a BBQ. Lots of picnic tables, a small BBQ to use, and a playground for the kids. Boat launch is close by. Good place to do some fishing as well. There is a small fee to enter the recreation area. $2 for a car. There is a nice campground for RV's as well.
