  • Nice area to walk with the kids and let them play. They are still under construction but its still nice. The lake is beautiful and there are lots of areas to sit or have a picnic.  more »
  • new walking trail with workout stations is excellent. Enjoyable quiet camping also available, both primitive and hookups.  more »
  • The exercise trail with the workout and playground equipment along the route is such a good idea. It is exercising with a view.  more »

  • Great getaway close to home! Clean nice campsites and quite peaceful place to relax!
  • We just checked it out, lake is still frozen. We will be back to fish and camp!
  • Too bad! Beautiful location overlooking Patterson Lake; wonderful day use area next to campground (paved hiking trail, disc golf, multiple play-scapes & exercise stations) BUT... busy rail tracks only 100 yards from campsites ( train about every 45 minutes) & then ATV area next to park (listen to roaring ATV all afternoon). Bathrooms pathetic! Appeared hadn't been cleaned thoroughly in a couple weeks (dirty walls, dirt in corners, hair in shower drains, cobwebs cover ceiling & light fixtures. As I said, too bad; someone (groups?) have put a lot of $ ' thought into this park but overlooked key elements; and now appearing neglected.
  • Very lovely but you can't swim in there
  • Camp grounds were clean with water and electric. Easy back in. Site was level. I would use again if in Dickerson ND.
