We had a nice site with partial shade. Nice pool for the kids.
There was a bad windstorm one day that blew a branch partly down. Owners came out and took the hanging limb down before we left.
WIFI worked great, full hook ups with 50 amp. Electrical pedestal looked new. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Dan's supermarket about a 1/4 mile from the KOA that is really large and has everything you could want including a post office.
KOA had fuel coupons that gave you 8cents off per gallon for gas or diesel just down from the park, nice perk.

I hated to leave. We've stayed at many KOA campgrounds and this was just about the best. The hosts were wonderful. The laundry room was clean and had an ironing board, laundry rack. Bathrooms and showers were well kept. They were full and yet very accommodating. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Staff was very helpful and took us to our site. Sites were packed gravel and level. KOA's are expensive as we only use them on occasion for an overnight. Did not use the facilities so could not rate. Nicely treed lots with some bushes. Near the highway and was easy to find. Noise from the road did not bother us. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart very close for stocking up. Pretty campground. Didn't seem like much going on but maybe this was because it was a Sunday. Not much to say except expensive for an overnight.

We stayed here in a motor home (sprinter Van) assigned to a tent site with electric. Nice grassy spot but not very level. The rest of the water/elec sites were taken. Otherwise, nice KOA with city view, hilltop, good tv reception. Quiet. Got coupon for 8 cents off/gal of gas and free coffee at Exxon. Nice offset for cost of stay!! We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

Owner/operators extremely accommodating and helpful. Sites are packed gravel, level and you are assigned site for your size rig. We have Big Rig so had long pull thru in center area, site separated from next sites with spacious grassy areas and trees and bushes, yet assigned site specifically to get satellite service.

As mentioned, owners work with you to give you site you need. Wi-fi strong and excellent. Only negative was laundry too small for size of campground. Wonderful dog park, great playground for youngsters, and beautiful pool. Our site had a big mud hole right where we parked our car created by previous camper, owner immediately filled it in and packed it with gravel. So attuned to maintenance and upkeep, grounds were well manicured. Has received KOA 2015 President's Award which is well deserved. Will bring you a fire ring if you want a fire. Just ask for anything and they will try to make it happen. Discount off $44 if you are a KOA member. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bismarck is state Capitol and there are tours of the Capitol building. Don't miss the Heritage Center next door to the Capitol. Also, take a short drive to Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park for tours of Custer's house and the Mandan Indian village on the Missouri River. If adventurous, take a 40 mile drive north to the interesting Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center and further north to the Knife River National Park.

We had a very level, long, all grass pull thru site with water and electric. We choose this for it's satellite reception and view of the city. The owner is simply outstanding! He made us feel welcome and helped out when we had a small problem with a grey water valve, by referring a mobile technician. This is how a campground should be run! We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We came for the Lewis and Clark Ft Mandan and Interpretive Center, which was excellent, with lots of hands-on exhibits. The State Capitol building tour was free and informative. There is a mobile Thai food trailer on the campground that was very tasty.

Stayed here in a Motorhome, barely got the motorhome and the car on site with the car parked perpendicular to the motorhome. Water pressure very low. Convenient to all attractions in Bismarck and surrounding area. Both nights the campground was full. Call ahead for reservations. I would stay here again. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you go to he Capital Grounds and visit the capital building and ND Heritage Center. Go to Abraham Lincoln State Park in Mandan.

This is a well run good KOA facility. The spacious sites and all interior roads are gravel. We found the owners to be very helpful and attentive. The park is in good condition considering the harsh winter environment. We would stay again if we happen to pass through Bismarck. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

It is a nice KOA, the spaces are gravel some grass between sites. Some sites had privacy bushes between. All the services worked fine. The staff was friendly and helpful. Currently there is construction on the road leading to the park but once that is done it is an easy on and off the freeway. We would stay again. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A very nice campground. Lots of wonderful trees so you don't feel so cramped like most KOAs. They should clean their picnic tables however. Pool was popular. Wi-Fi was the best KOA Wi-Fi we have ever experienced. Site was not level. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

KOA sure must like themselves! This place is NOT worth $44.00 for a full hook-up, pull through site....perhaps, $25.00 to $30.00! Showers are clean, I'll give them that BUT I've never seen smaller showers - I had to exit the privacy stall in order to set down and put my socks on!!! They charge $2.25 for one load of laundry and $0.25 per 8 minutes to drive!!! C'mon, folks....that is expensive! The woman t the check-in counter was civil to "ok" but not overly friendly! Based on two one night experiences here and at a Koa in Billings, MT We'll continue to avoid KOAs s often as we can! We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

1st time road trip camping. Would stay here again if I ever am in the area and need a place. Great staff, fire pit delivered upon request. Wood was expensive though - nearby Menards is cheaper for more. Nice that they had a little dog park, big sites, on a hill so nice overlook. Quiet, we were able to relax and chill and have dinner just like we wanted. Thank you KOA for a great first experience. Bathrooms and showers were nice and big. Internet access was pretty good, not great. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Tent.

Staff at this park are extremely helpful. We booked in to an 'overflow' site which, although suffering a bit from the extensive rain, was level with power and water. 2nd night they moved us into a full site. Both were level with easy access. Amenities were clean and well maintained. We even managed to get satellite reception between storms. We would definitely stay here again, with no hesitation at all. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.
