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.

I think this park is overpriced - even for a KOA. Roads are muddy gravel. Slippery walking and driving. There are a lot of oil/construction workers semi-permanently here. The pet run is used as extra parking. Vehicles are parked everywhere which makes it even tighter to get in and out. There are a lot of trees and bushes - branches hang too low. Laundry room needs updating but it's clean. We were close to the office and the Wi-Fi worked for us. Because of the price we probably won't stay again. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

Bismarck is booming and the campgrounds are busy. This place is pretty well run but there is a dust problem-dust plus rain = mud. So this is a KOA and it's busy. But it's what we expected so it's OK. Except we would like cable TV so we marked the campgroun down a notch. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

Getting into the campground is no problem for a big rig, but there are a lot of trees and we had to pull almost to the end to get satellite. This put us monumentally far from the water/electric/sewer as the site was long. We had enough cord and hose, but the sewer - no way. The owner volunteered to come by and dump us or move us, but we liked the site. Very nice. We just backed up to the sewer when we left so no problem. Only a couple of miles from shopping. Pleasant campground with quite a few long termers, probably because of the oil related boom, but it's orderly. Wi-Fi ok. Would stay here again. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a typical KOA - high priced, sites are close together and the surroundings look old and tired. There are many long term campers at this place and it looks generally run down. There was a large dead tree branch hanging down in my site (dragging on my trailer roof) which I took care of but the work kampers didn't seem to care. I was hoping for better but once again was let down by the KOA experience. We won't be back. We camped at Bismarck KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
