6 RV Parks near Garrison, North Dakota
Jun 2016 - $17.00
Campground is located on the shores of Lake Sakakawea. There are quite a few seasonal campers in the park, but their sites are clean and well-maintained. Our site (201) was huge as were all the sites in the same area of the park. We were able to pull into the site as if it was a pull-through, so it was very easy to park. Our campsite was on grass, but some sites are on gravel. Also, some sites are quite large while others are very close together so be sure and check out the map before making a reservation. We had electricity, but no water or sewer. There may be drinking water in the park, but it wasn't labeled and we couldn't tell for sure. There is definitely no dump station, which can be a bummer. There is water and a dump station (both free) in Garrison, however. The best part of this experience was the office girl who works Friday through Sunday. She was very friendly and helpful and will make sure you get the best available site if you talk to her. - Bobbi1948

We thought Lewis and Clark State Park in Williston, ND was great, but Ft. Stevenson State Park in Garrison, ND was even greater! The spaces were huge, with lots of trees around them. The roads were paved and easy to navigate. We had full hook-ups, a fire pit, a picnic table, the works. Plus the marina isn't very far and they sell ice cream. The entire park was in pristine condition and very quiet. The staff were courteous and ready to help with anything you needed. - Marilynintexas

This is a very nice campground, large pull-thru sites in one section with full w/e/s other sites were only w/e. Good walking/biking trails. Quiet since it was after Labor Day. - Steveieray

This is my fourth North Dakota state park, and I am really surprised that all North Dakota State parks charge the same regardless of whether the hookup is water/electric only, or water/electric/sewer. Also, if you have the North Dakota annual pass, then you only pay $20. Without the pass, it's $25. But with all that aside, this is a beautiful park to stay in. The sites are far apart, and each site has lots of acreage. My site had the full w/e/s hookup. Most of the sites appear to be pull through, but didn't explore the entire park. If you don't carry satellite, you can get excellent over the air reception of the major networks and PBS stations. Although there are trees, the trees don't shade the sites. The trees are between sites. Great for TV reception, bad for hot days. Verizon Air Card worked great on 3G service. Good reception on Verizon cell phone. Very relaxing to stay here. - DXSMac

This is a small COE campground on the shores of Lake Audubon. There are 10 primitive sites. The rest have either 30 or 50 amp electricity. Sites are adequate-sized. We fit boat, camper and truck on ours and still had plenty of room. Shade is hard to find here although they have planted trees, so that will change in the future. About 5 sites are paved while the rest are gravel. The campground fills up on the weekends, so if you want to camp here on the weekend, reservations are a must. There is plenty of availability during the week. There is easy access to fishing on both Lake Sakakawea and Lake Audubon from this location. Never saw the campground host, but the park rangers drove through frequently and were always friendly. - Bobbi1948

We were looking for a place to spend a couple of quiet days. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We camped here on the weekend before Labor Day.
This is a large, beautiful campground on a peninsula in Lake Sakakawea. There are several distinct loops throughout the park. We stayed at Fishing Point which is primitive: no hookups. The sites are huge, grassy, no shade and all are right on the lake. The sites were not full over the weekend. The Far Loop sites are also primitive and most are large with good views. The Elbow Loop has large, gravel pad sites and water/electric. Sites along the perimeter have nice views. Some are pull throughs. Some of the Van Hook sites had nice views. The Sanish Loop had water/electric and had mostly long, narrow sites and felt crowded.
The park is meticulously maintained. The staff was helpful and friendly. Despite signs, there was no usable wifi. There's good ATT and Verizon cell coverage. - dsvt

This campground has 249 first-come first-served sites and offers both electric/water hookups for $25 per night and non-hookup sites for $17 per night. Every site has a picnic table and a fire ring. This campground is pet-friendly. The pads in the non-hookup loop (we were in Fishing Point) are grassy and not entirely level, but easily workable with a few blocks.
The non-hookup loops and dump station area have potable water and threaded faucets. The water itself tasted a little funky during our stay, but it wasn't bad. The on-premises dump station is very large and surprisingly clean with four lanes for your dumping pleasure. Be warned if you stay here on a holiday weekend and need to dump-leave early or be prepared to wait.
During our stay the grounds were clean and well maintained. The grass was cut and the roads were free of major pot holes. The rangers came by every few hours to make sure everything was okay. Unfortunately, they didn't seem intent on enforcing the rules, as a quite a few of them drove by our neighbors who had all three of their dogs (and all four of their toddlers) off-leash and mostly unsupervised for the entire weekend.
We had excellent cell and data reception with 4 solid bars of Verizon LTE and 5 bars of Verizon 3G. We were able to stream videos and run updates the entire time we were there and had no interruption in service.
We often avoid state parks because they sometimes charge extra fees in addition to their camping fees. This place is no exception. Non-hookup sites are listed at $17, but you are also charged an additional $5 day-use pass per vehicle. But for a lakeside campground with amenities, the total nightly cost is still very reasonable. We'd easily stay there again the next time we are in the area. - technogypsies

This is a very nice state park. I have been coming here for many years, and they keep the park very clean. It can get a bit noisy on busy weekends, but due to budget cuts, they are short staffed and will try to tend to the problem. The roads are all paved inside the park and the sites are gravel. The water is from the rural water system so it is very good water. - fourpaws80

Very nice COE campground with electric hookup, picnic table, and fire ring. My site was a back in that was plenty long next to a large shade tree. There are lots of large trees here. Grounds are well maintained. Campground host was nice and sold firewood. There are several ponds and a nature trail, one pond is supposed to be stocked with Bass. Very quiet and peaceful place to stay when crossing the east half of Montana. - Stax

Great place to stay. Asphalt drive and pads. Quiet. Would definitely stay here again. - jprisbe

In six years of full timing this park ranks in the top ten. Sites and park are just great. Some trees for shade with the rest looking like a manicured yard. I would suggest loop 3 if you are in a big rig like our 40-footer. Lots of families were present on the weekend with well behaved children having a great time. - illini777

Our site was on the end & quite large. We were in the new section overlooking the bay & our view was beautiful, especially the sunsets. This is all grass & not at all level, so if you go, make sure you've got plenty of things to level your camper. There are no trees, and it was very windy while we were here.
We were here mostly during the week & there was no one around, so it was very quiet. We don't have a boat or anything, so we just enjoyed the view. They could use a trash can here. We did not have any problem with our sewer hookup.
We would go back again if in the area. You can't beat the price for full hookups. I am rating our site a 5 for the view, but again it was very unlevel! - goldenruler

Large, grass sites with plenty of room for boat, camper, and vehicle. Water and electricity were good, but most campers in our area had issues with the sewer in that our hoses wouldn't connect securely. Some sites had large ruts from tires, which caused a minor inconvenience for those campers. Access to the boat ramp was good, but parking for boat trailers was at a premium on the weekend. Verizon MiFi worked well as did our AT&T phone and Dish satellite. - Bobbi1948

This is a beautiful park next to Lake Sakakawea. Rate is the PA rate. Our coach has air leveling only and is automatic, so when leveling in the back in site assigned, the levelers lowered the rear of the coach so much that it severely bent our mud flap. We were essentially parked in a grass field. We had to be careful backing in as there were deep ruts from previous occupants, probably due to heavy rains. It rained while we were there, but we had no trouble driving out of our space. The "sites" were spacious enough, and there are no trees blocking satellite reception. The staff was friendly and courteous. We might stay here again, but it would depend on the time of year. - therealSimpsons
