This is a beautiful state park that is truly "away from it all" on an island in the middle of Devil's Lake. The lake is apparently great for fishing, but it's not great for swimming. Tons of visible algae made it pretty unappealing. That said, we enjoyed walks, short bike rides, and kayaking along the shore. We stayed two nights in the LaRose section of the park, which is the newest, and one night in the Howard. (Comments about our site, below, are for the LaRose site).

The LaRose is wide open with only small trees, but the spots are very spacious and the Verizon connection was surprisingly good (3 bars) considering how far away the island is from any town (15 miles). They are constructing a new building at one end of the LaRose campground, so there was a bit of construction noise during the day. Our site in the Howard section was gorgeous: totally private, in the woods under huge trees and surrounded by large shrubs. The downside is that there were more mosquitoes and the Verizon signal was spottier (generally 1 bar). Most sites in the park are huge, with ample space for a camper, truck, and boat. The park office has extensive fishing supplies, bug spray supplies (you'll need them), and a bit of food and drink (not much). One nice park feature we took advantage of was the onsite gasoline pump. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice and clean park. Spacious sites. Very good fishing area. Swim beach. Fish cleaning station. Only complaint would be the location if the trash dumpsters are a ways from each of the 3 campgrounds. Very nice park office with supplies/bait/firewood. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a boater's and fisherman's dream! The park has three RV sections (not including the primitive area with no power, no water, no sewer). Ziebach Campground, the oldest, has 50A and water, and is like camping on a golf course, with broad and manicured lawns and pull thru sites good for most big rigs. Howard Campground, the second oldest, is like Turtle River State Park, with sites located in the cottonwoods and brush, offering lots of privacy. LaRose Campground, the newest, has sewer and is parallel sites out in the open. The bait shop/office has a small store with essentials (and terrible frozen pizza), which is handy inasmuch as the nearest town (Devil's River) is 15 miles away. Boat ramp and fish cleaning station for the fishermen. Our site took a bit of work to level up. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Not much available for travelers in this state - most spaces reserved year round. Would not let me use my electric cart as it was not registered in state. Spaces wide open, but not much for shade. Arrived early and had to move - although no one in assigned space. Reservations on line and site personal can't alter. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here enroute during a five week trip out west. It was kind of pricey for a one night stay, but that's on us. It's a very nice campground, especially if you can get a site in the older, wooded sections. We could only get a site in the new section, which was open, no trees and campsites closer together. The amenities were adequate for what we were looking, which was a place to overnight. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful State Park with a brand new "RV" section with full hookups. We spent a couple of days here in mid-Sept. So things were very quiet, but I suspect it gets very busy in the summer. It's about 15-miles outside The town of Devils Lake. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

$20/night+3.00 online registration fee. Roads and sites are paved with picnic tables and fire rings. We stayed in the reservable area, but the ranger told us they are expanding the camping because they have to turn so many people away in the summer. This is a boating and fishing paradise – nice boat ramp (for 4 launches) and a large fish cleaning station near the bait shop/store/check-in. People drive very fast in the campground, and the bathhouse is within driving distance with pit toilets located in a few spots in the camping area. The bathhouse is very clean and large. It is a good drive to Devils Lake (town). We would stay here again. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Magnificent campground. We spent 3 nights here with our two dogs and loved every minute. Park staff were very friendly and helpful. Also had wonderful campground hosts. The park was a little difficult to get to because of the construction work on Hwy 19 due to the rising waters of Devils Lake. And driving over the 4 mile causeway was an experience but well work the trip. The lake is beautiful and the campground lush with grass, butterflies, and thousands of dragonflies. Not filled to capacity due to the construction which made it even more serene. Definitely would come back again. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a most pleasant surprise! Unless you are from North Dakota, this is sort of off the beaten path. BUT, if you like boating or fishing or both, it's worth a visit. The park is VERY well maintained. There are two sections, the east section is a bit more open and the west section is a bit more woodsy. There is LOTS of space between camping spots, many "drop" toilets and a few real bathrooms w/showers. Boat ramp is wide and has lots of adjacent parking. Fish cleaning station is first class. If we're in the area in the future, we will, for sure, camp here, and longer than we did this time!!! We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Motorhome.

We can do without hookups so camped in the primitive area. Very few people in this part of the campground. Beautiful grassy areas, great hiking trails, super birding, many boat docks. Great place to enjoy the outdoors and relax. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here in mid September 2009 in site #4. It was the end of the season and it was so very quiet here. Most of the sites were level and very spacious with many shaded sites. There was water and 50 amps in the east loop with 30 amps in the west loop. We got local and satellite TV and had 2 bars on our Verizon cell and broadband card for the computer. We would have given this place a 10 if they would have sewers, otherwise this place is great! We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Loved it here: but if you are planning on arriving without a booking on a Friday, you may be out of luck. This is a very popular camping spot. Big sites, lots of room between sites, well shaded and private. We found the campground to be very well maintained, staff were exceptionally friendly and even though we did not have a reservation they managed to make a plan for us. We will be back.

If you can live without a sewer hook-up you have to love it here. Sites are spaced very far apart in a lovely setting next to Devil’s Lake. We were here mid-week and found several pull-through campsites that worked well for our 45’ motorhome. Others weren’t as level or had tree issues, so try to pick your site if you can. Campsites are $15 per night, plus a $5 park entrance fee if you don’t have an annual pass. We would go out of our way to stay here again. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Off the beaten path and mostly a fisherman's paradise. But the park has a lot of trees and was very well maintained The long pull throughs were very nice. Good 50 amp and great water pressure. Tree branches were the only negative, as some need trimming, so be aware if you have a big rig. Fair Verizon signal and satellite worked on the sites on the perimeter of the park. I would stay here again. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful, scenic campground with large pull-thrus and amazing space per site. Worth the drive off the main road. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Motorhome.
