In western North Dakota, all the regular RV parks are very quickly filled to capacity. We arrived in late July and most parks were completely full. The area offers charming small camping parks, around area lakes. These parks do not have sewer or water usually, but they offer primitive camping without electricity, and they offer electricity at some sites. All are first come, first serve. The best thing about these parks is they are quiet and you stay right on the water. The McGregor Dam park offers a beautiful lake, filled with fish. It is located north of Tioga on Hwy 40, one mile south of the tiny town of McGregor. It is off the beaten path, but such a lovely spot. The local authorities do maintain the park, and let folks enjoy the peace and quiet most of the time, unless there are complaints. This park offers a 5 space area with electrical hookups at the main entrance. The are another 3 spots that on individual peninsulas that offer electrical hookups. These are a bit on a slant, but gives an individual yard for each camper or RV. There is a 4th peninsula, but not sure if had electrical or not. On the other side of the lake, there are 4 primitive sites with no amenities, but these are also like peninsulas, and there is an individual yard for each camper. These are very peaceful. There are restrooms available in both areas, but no showers. Fishing is allowed. There are a lot of birds on the lake. Deer are common in the area, and believe it or not, some mountain lions are roaming in North Dakota and have been seen south in the area of Watford City. We did not see any personally, but bear, moose and elk roam here, also. This park is quite busy during the summer, so the limit is 14 days. We also went back in October when almost no one was there. The park officials do not like to allow it, but they did let us stay a day or so extra while we hunted for a new place to park. They expect patrons to pick up after themselves and to allow others peaceful enjoyment. They are extremely pet friendly, many people bring their hunting dogs to run out there. Our 4 dogs loved this park!! We had plenty of personal space, they could run free in our individual area on the peninsula. Once we moved to the electrical hookup area, there were some dogs running free and causing some trouble, but ours are well-behaved and did not get into any trouble because we do not just turn them loose. This issue could be a problem as the dogs running loose were small, and could be hurt if someone allowed a bigger dog to run free at the same time. Overall, this is an excellent place to stay in North Dakota. We camped at McGregor Dam Camping Area in a Motorhome.

There are no hookups, no showers, and no bathrooms. There are lots of bugs. Unkempt lots with many oil workers, and no cell phone service It is a long way out from everything. We camped at McGregor Dam Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.
