7 Parks near Arvilla, North Dakota
Sep 2016 - $30.00
Quiet area about 25 minutes from Grand Forks. Most sites in South Loop are wooded and large level pull through sites. There is an abundance of poison ivy and mosquitoes so plan to spray. Water and electricity worked well. Good antenna pick up. Verizon with cell and data service. Minimal Sprint. This area worked well for overnight stop. - bbmidwife

Nice state park just off US 2. Easy in and easy out. Stayed in September so park was not full making it quite and private. Friendly staff. Pull through sites with electric and water hookups. Could seem crowded in peak times as sites were close together. Nice clean bathrooms. Call ahead to ensure space is available. - JABMPM

Despite a couple of negatives, we really did like this campground. The price is decent although you have to purchase a separate daily or yearly pass for the car. It is a pretty park with lots of trees. And quite a few of them could use a good trim. There are low hanging branches and tight corners. We found that taking the second entrance into the campground is a shorter distance and hence you avoid some of the trees. The first entrance involves much dodging. The loops are narrow and tight and bi-directional. It was pretty vacant when we were there so we didn't have an issue playing chicken with other RVs. The sites are placed vertically with the entrance/exit leading right into the next site. The sites are gravel/dirt and pretty darn level. There are not many sites suitable for very large RVs. Oddly, you can hear some traffic noise but it's not bad. Due to trees, we could not get satellite. Verizon was 4g with 2 bars. The camp host was very informative and warned of bad weather and spraying for mosquitoes (they can be quite vicious at times!). The bathrooms are utilitarian, but functional and very clean. The park itself is well cared for and beautiful. There are lots of picnic areas and playgrounds. Biking is available on the road as well as off road on some fun trails that are maintained. We also got to see a mink! We camped here in a 45 foot motorhome and would stay here again. - Free

The sites are positively huge! Easy in and out. Friendly. We stayed 4 nights. Arboretum to walk to. Clean as a whistle. - vikspiks

Daily rates are $20, weekly rate is $100. Nice and convenable campground right off of Hwy. 2 The campground is ran by the State Park Dept. The lake isn't as big as expected with a lot of surface algae growth which made it hard to fish from the bank. If you had a boat, it would be perfect. The mosquitoes where bad which kept us in our camper a lot. If the wind was blowing it kept them down. The 9 hole golf course within 1/4 of a mile was well kept with really nice greens and reasonable rates. The city of Larimore has a small grocery store, two local restaurants and two gas stations. The town people were really friendly. We were there during "Larimore Days" which allowed us to really visit with the locals. A short drive to Grand Forks Air Force Base (10 miles) and Grand Forks is a 30 mile trip where you will find all the "Big City" stores and restaurants. - K. Flooyd

This park has very good wide, paved access, 2 miles off US 2. The sites are HUGE, 40x70 is what they advertise, but we easily fit our heavy-duty truck, 38' 5th wheel & Jeep. The feature the previous reviewer didn't like is one we particularly liked -- you turn into the narrow, 1-way gravel road at your section of the park, then pull into your completely grassed site. There are posts at the end of the sites, which could be a problem with narrower, shorter sites, but there is plenty of room to swing in. When you leave, you drive over the grass back to the loop road & go out. If you get a lot of rain, I can see that it might be difficult to get out. There is a fire ring at every site. Not every site has sewer hookups. Although there are a lot of seasonal campers, their sites are kept very neat & clean, especially considering there is not a list of rules handed out at the office that you get at most campgrounds. The people at the office do not "patrol" like at some campgrounds, either. Very quiet. A lake for fishing & swimming easily reached by bike. Bike trail runs directly in front of campground. Besides the lake, there really isn't anything for kids to do -- no pool, game room, etc. There are a couple basketball courts by the office. There is also an outdoor arboretum next door with many walking & bike trails. We will definitely visit again! - straw

Big nice park, but nothing much around. There is a golf course right beside the park that is reasonable. Most of the park is seasonal residents and some of them are very crabby. Nice place to stay a few days though. - mary mcmoo

Large campground located in on an artificial lake. Very casual staff, was checked in by a friendly maintenance person. Large grassy sites. Great area for walking or biking. - dandd
Jun 2010 - $20.00
Sites are large and in the grass. This appears to be a popular area with locals, so the weekends may be busy. Mid-week it was fine. There are some seasonal units that are kept up nicely. Swimming is available at the dam. There is a playground in the woods and a baseball field. There were lots of mosquitoes. - CowgirlCreations

One of the best parks we have used. It is out of the way; about 12 miles west of Grand Forks. Enter through the Cargo gate; the pass office is there in case all of your party does not have military IDs. However this gate was closed when we left on a Saturday morning and we used the main gate to leave. Sites are widely spaced. Grass had been recently mowed and the mosquitos were not too bad; with repellant they did not bother. Very little aircraft noise for an AF base. Exchange and Commissary are adequate for a small base.
Only down side was the very odd location of utility hookups. Took every inch of our sewer line and water hose. No cable or wifi. Picked up a number of over-the-air channels. - Bojangles

We stayed 5 days. We called Outdoor Rec to make sure there was available space and chose our site first before checking in. They don't assign sites anyway and we were never asked where we were parked. Grass was ankle high. The mosquitoes were constantly swarming and biting due to recent rains and tall grass. They cut the grass two days after our arrival and fogged the mosquitoes. It kept the swarms down for a couple days. There are 21 full hookup back in sites but at least 2 of them had broken utilities. Campground didn't fill up during our stay; there were always 2-3 sites empty (excluding the ones with broken utilities). There are a couple homesteaders. No playground or dog park altho there's a really nice playground and dog park in a nearby housing area. Bathhouse was clean. Laundry room was convenient and cheap. We never got WiFi to connect. Nice water pressure. Utilities are way in the back. Nice quiet campground. Mosquitoes were just really bad when we were there late July. BX and commissary are nearby. BX is closed on Sundays.
If you enter the main gate on a weekday, the guard will make you go back and enter thru the Cargo Gate. You can enter thru the main gate on weekends only. No reservations. Sites are not assigned. - Flippitti

This was a great campground. Only issue was no pull thrus. The sites were level and spacious. The wiFi was not working when we were there because they were changing providers. All the utilities worked great but they were located in back of sites (just a bit awkward). Quiet stay. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Great place. - hug448844

Park is very open with good, level lots, clean restrooms and laundry. However, the highway noise is bothersome for sleeping. - cmclark

Accessible by gravel service road next to the major highway. Could hear traffic, but not constant. Friendly staff however, laundry facilities closed at 7:00 pm. Neighboring lots are nearby. Site surface is gravel and grass and offers some shade. No other amenities but a clean place to stay for the night. - GerryB

Access to this campground is found just before the entrance to Flying J. The paved road turns into a gravel road and the campground entrance is found about 1/4 mile down the gravel road. Sites are gravel with some grass between you and your neighbor. While the sites are not close together, turning out of your site means keeping a careful eye on the trees and other people's vehicles as it is tight (we have a 32' motorhome). Our nightly rate included water, electric, and sewer. - JC06

Nice campground situated in East Grand Forks but very spacious and lots of shade. Wife and I stayed 1 night on our US-2 trip to WA. Walking distance close to shopping, restaurants, movies, etc but yet you have that "out-of-the-way" feeling because of the location along the river. Good wifi, friendly campground host and nice sites. I would definitely stay here again. - tlonkey

This one is hard to rate because it is different from most campgrounds I'm used to staying in. This was a neighborhood that was devastated in 1997 by flooding. FEMA purchased the buildings and they were demolished and the area along the river and lake was turned into a greenway and this RV Park...Great idea! It's in the floodplain, so that is something to keep in mind if you plan to stay here during a heavy rain.
We paid $39 for a pull-through site with full hookups. That included a $10 state park charge. Gravel parking was relatively level. Friendly staff and clean park. We didn't take advantage of the close proximity of a cinema, restaurants and shopping within walking distance or the bike trails because we were passing through and only spending one night.
There were several other campers, but we were nicely spaced out...moreso than average. Lots of trees. The prime spots along the bike path were rented, so it's best to call ahead if you want one of those. Only issue was a gazillion mosquitoes (they actually sprayed the night we were here).
The park ranger was kind enough to stay after hours to take our money along with 2 other folks who also showed up while we were doing our business.
We had a hard time finding a suitable campground with decent reviews within striking distance of Winkler, Manitoba Canada...and this area seemed the best option as far as proximity. This one was a crap-shoot with only one review before mine. Being 2 women, we seek out locations and campgrounds that we feel safe in. This fit that bill. Glad we gave it a shot. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again. - maryotx

This is our second 5 day stay at this park. It continues to be one of the best campgrounds we have stayed in and is very popular so reservations are recommended. It is very close to major restaurants and entertainment and the city pool. Huge sites with full hookups and almost all pull-throughs and very far apart. - Winnie35
