This is an old KOA that is fairly well maintained except for one thing, the trees haven't been trimmed since independence. Ours and many other rigs are 12 to 13.5 feet tall and we refuse to damage our rig because someone is too lazy to trim some trees. Oh and if your rig is clean, don't come here. The park is at the end of a 1/2 mile of gravel road. Because of impending rain, I passed on the commercial wash at the last town. There are other parks and we are going there. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A pleasant RV park. Lots of shade. Must drive a mile of dusty, rough gravel to get there. Sites could use some monitoring prior to reassignment: We spent some time picking up rubble and garbage at our site before it was comfortable. Sites are level, shaded pull-throughs. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy access from I-29. Easy entrance into the park. This is a family owned and operated park. The manager was hospitable and efficient in getting us checked in and directed us to our pull-through site. Getting into the site was unusually easy. Do bring at least 40 feet of sewage hose if you are towing and need to have your motorhome well forward to keep from disconnecting your toad. Sewage connections are at the rear of the sites. Trailers do not have that need. We will plan to stay here the next time we come through the area. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is very open with good, level lots, clean restrooms and laundry. However, the highway noise is bothersome for sleeping. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Just stayed one night. Staffed seemed efficient and friendly. Entry is off a gravel road but didn't notice dust nuisance. Loved the shady sites and enjoyed the fire pit at the site. Distance between neighbor appropriate. Our site was clean. Only downfall was trash overflowing from dumpsters but staff did correct this by compacting trash so it was not visible. No cover on our sewer hook-up. I used the laundry room which was clean. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Motorhome.

Grand Forks did so much for the town after flood. Nothing done to the campground. Muddy, dusty and sites were filthy. Not a fan. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Motorhome.

This former Good Sam park is a pigsty. It is at least a mile down a DUSTY dirt road. The site we were given had a beer case cardboard for a sewer cover. Other sewers around had the same, so the area smelled! We spent one night, never opened our windows and left as soon as possible. Many regulars with kids, dogs, etc. Saw one let her dog poop in a site and leave it. Park appears in 2015 Woodall's/Good Sam guides. I called them and was told they lost the creds sometime ago. No explanation why they appeared in 2015 guide. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Interesting access down a dirt road. Staff were helpful and friendly. Site was level, with easy access. We only spent one night here as the park was booked out. I had no reason to move my starting mark of 7. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Motorhome.

As others mentioned, this park is located just off a busy freeway and about a mile down a very dusty road. We were tired and decided to stay. We paid, parked, went back to the office to get a refund, and left. While the staff was very accommodating, the RV park is dirty, dirty, dirty. We absolutely could not deal with being covered in dust from those driving too fast through the park and the farmers digging up the fields on all side of us. Lots of road workers which equals a lot of trucks and guys sitting around drinking and smoking. Not our kind of place at all. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

While the campground was accessible from the highway, it was quite crowded. It was a Canadian holiday and many were down from Manitoba to visit. Being the beginning of the spring season, it was a bit muddy. After the heavy rain, our entry to the camper was a huge puddle. There is potential here, but someone has to care, and take care of the property. Okay for an overnight, because it's really the only place in the area. They are friendly. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Looks like someone bought a farm with a campground on it; they should stick to farming. The restrooms were a dirty mess, and the campsite was also. We asked for a site close to the restrooms but those sites were being used as a parking lot by the workers from the farm, it seems. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Truck Camper.

We did not enjoy the sound of traffic all night. We did not enjoy the smell of sewer. We did not enjoy traveling down a dirt road to get here. We will not be back. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Motorhome.
