We camp in a 33 ft Class A. The sites are very sloped and unlevel. We booked site 69 based on descriptions provided on the state park website and by looking at a satellite view from Google Maps. Upon arrival we discovered the site would not accommodate our 33 foot motorhome unless we backed over the fire pit & into sloping hill. Very unrealistic. One loop has pull through sites which are hit and miss on how level they are. If you're in a smaller travel trailer or tent trailer you may have no issues at all however larger Rigs (motorhomes, 5th wheels or trailers) may have difficulty with many sites in this park. Unfortunately for us the only two sites available would not accommodate us so we had to drive five hours south to the nearest campground with space. Not much of a back up plan available near this campground. Very rural. Only 1 dump, on a hill. Very low water pressure for filling tanks. The added bonus for this campground is a Walmart within 25 minutes drive. We camped at Lake Metigoshe State Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful park with great shade and big pull through site in the reserved section. Only problems were not the park's fault: mosquitos and mud from rain. Otherwise a great place to stay and we will stay here again. We camped at Lake Metigoshe State Park in a Travel Trailer.

North Dakota State Parks seems to have a "thing" about making sites share water faucets. This is the third park I have encountered with this. The water faucet is located every two spaces, and it's in the front, right between the spaces. The faucet closest to me happened to have a splitter, but not all of them did. The 5th Wheel in the next spot over had enough hose to connect to the water faucet, but my 50 feet of hose was a tad bit short. I had to pull out into the driving road, block traffic, and fill up my tank. Ok, enough on the rant. Very nice park. I stayed in the loop that is "first come first serve." If you are in a big rig, I don't recommend staying in that loop. The loop for "reservations only" seemed to have longer sites, and more pull-throughs. I am in a 32 foot Class C and I had trouble finding a spot to fit. Glad I didn't have a toad. I did notice some spots in this loop that were very wide. I also noticed some "hookup" spots that were very small, maybe a Popup could fit, but nothing bigger. The spaces themselves are very private, with LOTS of vegetation between sites. However, trying to back into one was a bit tight for me. I held my breath. I got one channel over the air on batwing, it was a Canadian channel from Manitoba. Verizon Cell Phone and Verizon Cellular modem worked very well. This park also has a "primitive" camping area, but I didn't get to check that part out. In North Dakota, if you don't have the annual pass, you pay $25 for hookups. If you have the pass, it's only $20. Oh, one more minor issue. After I found a site, I had to walk a mile to the self registration, only to find there were no forms in the box. Had to flag down a ranger but got it done. I would love to give this park a 10 but the shared water faucets were just a bit inconvenient. We camped at Lake Metigoshe State Park in a Motorhome.

The sites are somewhat short, thickly forested. Electric and water are nearby. Hiked on the trail, almost got lost, not well marked, and couldn't see the lake, just a few feet away for the brush. Overall good park. We camped at Lake Metigoshe State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A park to spend time in, one that needs to be gotten to be known. Lots of lake and lots of trails. We camped at Lake Metigoshe State Park in a Motorhome.
