This is a very pleasant campground. Stays are limited to 14 days, so the sites are occupied by campers rather than long term residents. Roads are paved with concrete or asphalt. RV sites are gravel. The park has lots of grass and trees. It is within walking distance of several restaurants and shops. There are some great hike & bike trails adjacent to the park. We enjoyed a ten mile scenic bicycle ride from our campsite. The trail was aside the banks of the Red River. We crossed to the Minnesota side and back amidst lovely surroundings. We camped here in a Motorhome.

$30 per night was for a full hookup site. In addition, there is daily parking permit of $5 or you can purchase an annual MN state parking pass for $25, which is good for 12 consecutive months from the date of purchase. Many recreational opportunities are available in the park and surrounding areas including biking/hiking trails. The campground is located within walking distance of downtown East Grand Forks, MN and its many dining and shopping opportunities. You can also walk across the bridge into Grand Forks, ND, which offers many more shopping/dining experiences. As stated in prior reviews, spacing between sites is generous and most sites are level. While there are trees in the campground, they afford very little shade but they’ve done more plantings so shade should improve in the coming years. We received three bars of 4G LTE on our AT&T phone. There is free Wi-Fi in the campground which worked well for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Holy cow, the previous reviews are right, this place is in the middle of a city! This place was created in 1997 after a flood devastated the area. This area was a housing development. After the flood, everything was torn down and rebuilt to a State Park. What is so cool about this place is that it is within walking distance of some restaurants, movie theater, Cabela's, a place to get your hair cut, lots of things. If you don't tow a car and find yourself in this area, try to stay two nights just to "do the town." You are close to a bridge where you can walk to the North Dakota side. The hookup sites are pull-through but the sites are arranged parallel along the driving road so that someone may be in front or behind, but nobody is directly beside you. You get a lot of acreage with your site. Restrooms were clean. I had to pay $35 ($30 camping, $5 car fee) for full hookup. If you have the Minnesota Annual Pass, you don't pay the car fee. You pay the car fee even if you aren't towing a car, but they don't charge extra for a towed car. Little pricey for a state park, but cheaper than a hotel! TV reception via JACK antenna was difficult. It seemed that you got the most channels when you turned it the direction of the least blue reception lights. You get CBS, NBC, ABC, ME-TV, CW, and some good Prairie Public PBS stations. I'm surprised I couldn't get a FOX station. The park does not have Wi-Fi. I detected a "city Wi-FI" but was unable to use it from my site. Verizon JetPack, cell phone, and wireless landline all worked great. The only thing I DIDN'T like was weasling my RV down DeMers avenue to get to this park. That is a busy street! We camped here in a Motorhome.
