A little known,Traill County Park, on the Red River between ND and MN. 4 mi. West of Climax MN on SR 220 and 1 mi. North on gravel road. About 6 mi East of Buxton ND and 1 mi North on gravel. A very well maintained Co. park, very under used. 30 Amp.power in dispersed grassy sites under big oak trees. 1 hydrant for water fill,no RV dump. Peaceful ,quiet,and fish for catfish in Red River from shore. Somewhat rustic and out of the way,but for $5.00 day we stayed 10 days.

Stayed here for the beet harvest, so the site was free while we worked the harvest. First impression was "What did we get into?!" This place is run down and in serious need of repairs. Most sites are so small there is no room to park even one vehicle. When I stepped out my door I could actually touch my neighbors rig! Got 2 inches of rain 2 days before we were going to leave and had to stay an additional 2 days just so the ground dried up enough to get out of our site. Nothing but a big mud hole. Had electric issues (our whole row lost power) and when I notified the owner she acted like I should fix the problem, which I thought was really funny and told her that is not going to happen. I will stay in a rest area before I would stay here again. - bandtgorv

My impression is that the owner of this park is trying to do too much. She not only checked me in but was cooking take out chicken dinners at the same time she was handling cash. I'd think twice about eating the food also since I didn't see her wash her hands after handling my money and then moving over to the food. The reason for my impression of their trying to do too much is we made a reservation at 1:30 PM the day of our stay for a site and were promised one. Upon arrival the owner realized that our site had been given away and offered us a spot out in the grass behind where farm machinery is stored. It did have electricity which in 90 degree heat in ND made things tolerable. The park has no litter however it is not especially tidy either. The swing set is a little rough and near the road in front of the campground. I would be afraid to leave my children alone on it. While the other guests seem nice enough they also seemed to be just as rough around the edges as their units. I didn't feel unsafe however. The sites (other then the grass ones where I was located) are gravel and all the interior roads are very dusty dirt. What gravel that was there is long gone. The park has the potential to be quite nice, however right now it's being ridden hard. We paid $20 for our site which is okay but no deal. If we had arrived earlier in the day we probably would have moved on. My guess is there are other parks that are as good or better for the money. - bandirector

Nice large pull throughs, owner friendly but not there much as he works outside. Over all not bad. Had a little restaurant take out place for small food. Wasn't to bad. Could use some updating. - bentbrissel

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
