This park has a few long sites, which we needed, but spacing is very close, off of a shared electric pedestal and water spigot. I actually had to crawl under my adjacent neighbors slide out to in insert my sewer hose into the shared outlet. Only a few sites could get rooftop satellite because of trees and managers had no idea of how that worked. Many long term trailers because this area is on the edge of the oil field so lots of workers. Wi-Fi was OK and it the park was fairly quiet. Check-in lady was very pleasant, her husband not so much. It was OK for an overnight, but we would only stay again if there was no other choice. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is with Good Sam discount. Very easy to access, big rigs no problem. Very friendly staff who were also quite helpful with a technical issue (connections). Transient sites are fairly close to each other but reasonable (awnings are no problem) and level. Roads and sites are dirt. Lots of oil-patch and highway workers with nice rigs; we didn't see any unkempt sites as is sometimes the case with long-termers. Certainly OK for an overnight stay. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff is friendly and accommodating. We have stayed here before with previous managers. These managers have made a wonderful improvement in the park. The price is high because of the Bakken workers and construction workers, but this is the only RV park in the area that you would want to stay in. There are a lot of contractors and construction workers in the park, but the park is kept clean and pretty neat. Our spot was level and enough space for our 5th wheel and pickup. In spite of the permanent residents there was room for the ones that pulled in for a night or two, etc. Our Internet was good. No cable, but we received the main TV channels fine. The laundry is clean. There is a charge of .25 a minute to use the showers, which we didn't use. The restrooms and showers are clean. The new managers are continually working to improve the park. A few years ago it was flooded and a great improvement has been made, especially by the current managers. I would definitely stay here again. We stayed for one week this time.

Limited options for campgrounds in this part of North Dakota. Our pull-through site had a lovely view of the storage area approximately 40 feet in front of us. Manager friendly and helpful. Many oil industry workers living here full-time. WIFI worked fine. We had to have the manager move a utility trailer from the road in front of us in order for us to actually use the pull-through feature of our site since the owner just parked it right in the road. Price reflects Good Sam discount. If we had a choice we would probably go elsewhere in the future. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Motorhome.

We checked in for a week. The web site said the weekly rate was $210. When I checked in I was told it was $280. I questioned it because of the web site and showed them the web site. There was a problem with a previous web site not being connected to the current one since when these managers took over and raised the price. It took about 1/2 hr. to get my $70. refund. We were given a site, but it was occupied. We called the office and said it was occupied. We were told, "It shouldn't be". Then they came to the site to take us to another site. We started setting up at the second site and were told, "Whoops, you have to move. We are saving that one for long term occupants." We disconnected, and were moved to another site where they told us to "pull in here". We pulled in and the connections were on the opposite site . They then told us to move again. Four moves before they gave us a site that worked. The staff was friendly when we checked in until we got our refund of $70. Then they had nothing to say and we didn't see them again. They have been managers or owners for about 10 months, so should have been more efficient than they were. The laundry is clean but a bit higher than other parks we have been to. They charge 25 cents a minute for a shower. The park is messy. Our site had a broken pen, broken sun glasses, and lots of cigarette butts, so apparently wasn't cleaned up after previous tenants. Most of the sites are occupied by oil workers. Some are junky, but most don't have much stuff sitting around. Most vehicles don't follow the speed limit in the park. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I fully agree with the last review. This park was full of long term construction workers. The sites were small. The children of these workers were plentiful and screamed until well past 11pm. To make matters worse a backhoe was digging up water lines directly behind our motorhome at 6am. We were not warned about this ahead of time nor about having the water turned off the next morning. Mud was plentiful too due to repairs. It was expensive and a poor value. The office staff was not nice nor helpful. I would have given them a 2 rating but they were easy to find, seemed safe, and the Wi-Fi did work for a little while during the evening. You can forget about a satellite signal in this park due to the tree canopies. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Motorhome.

Our family rented a motorhome for the first time and selected Roughrider Campground due to reasonable reviews posted previously. However, we learned that the park has changed ownership and wanted to provide a recent review of the services at this property. We traveled to Minot to enjoy a family reunion and were looking for a convenient and accommodating place to stay. We did not find the campground to be very accommodating. The sites at Roughrider are very narrow, and while they are pull-throughs, you will find yourself right on top of your neighbors. The restrooms and showers were clean, but we were disappointed to discover that showers were not free: it cost $1 for 5 minutes of hot water. The laundry room was clean as well, with comparable prices to the laundromats in town. Our biggest disappointment was our interactions with staff. We did not find them to be very courteous on the phone. Most notably, they gave our camping site away--without confirming with us that we were indeed checking out of the campground--when we drove our motorhome (our only vehicle) to town to spend time with our family. We found this to be very unprofessional. We did not find this campground worth the money. It has newer facilities and is kept clean, but the management did not seem to be as interested in the interests of their customers as they were in making money. It is not a quiet park; rather, there is a lot of traffic coming and going all day--both vacationers and long-term residents. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Motorhome.

There are not many choices in this area. This RV park is more like a housing area for the locals. Loaded with RV's that are trying to be long-term housing. Sites are narrow and very soft. Was not worth the money at all. Could not wait to leave. Would NEVER return. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Neat and clean. Some shade. Sites very close together. Laundry and everything new due to flood last year. Lots of permanent residents. Staff very nice - we had to stay extra days because of the wind and our dog getting sick and they were very helpful. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Reservations definitely needed at this campground, regardless of when you are traveling. It's either the oil workers or special festivals. I managed to squeak in a one night reservation during a Scandinavian festival. Although I'm giving the park a 6, I want to give the staff a 10. I am currently traveling with an injury and I'm on crutches. When I made the reservation, I mentioned that I needed to do laundry and I had an injury. The staff managed to get me close to the laundry. I'm not saying my site was great, but I was close to the laundry. Although the sites are gravel on ground, my site was fairly level. Didn't need Lynx Blocks to hoist up a tire or two. The sites are "side by side" and once you get your slides out, you need only to open your window, knock on your neighbor's window and say, "Please pass the mustard." I'm not joking! As for the neighbor on the other side (in the next side by side over), well, there is "some" spacing, but not much. The laundry room was very clean and had modern high efficiency washers. Laundry was reasonable, $2.25 to wash, and 25 cents for 5 minutes to dry. Let's just say, $1.50 was enough to dry a load of clothing. Not cheap, but not outrageous. I got a decent Wi-Fi signal at my site. Wasn't blazingly fast, but worked enough for email. I got decent digital TV reception over the air via batwing with Wingman. Basically three network channels and a NOAA weather info channel specific to North Dakota. As for the network channels: I found if you put the antenna one way, you got CBS, NBC, and FOX. If you rotated the antenna 90 degrees, you got CBS, NBC, and ABC. Good reception with Verizon cell phone. I noticed some road noise, but it was tolerable. Price I paid reflects Good Sam discount and taxes. Decent place to stop over on your travels, if you can tolerate the "pass the mustard" situation. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Motorhome.

This park has been redone after the flood. The roads and sites are gravel and in fairly good shape. The laundry is large and clean. There are large trees in the park center, but none where we were located. The park had lots of long term guests due to the oil workers. However, their sites were clean and there was no extra noise or problems. You will most likely need reservations as there are only a few sites for travelers; 3 or 4 is all I counted. We would stay again. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground and the city of Minot was devastated by a flood in 2011. The campground has reopened and has added sites. Power and water are good. It is all gravel and the new sites are close together. We would stay again. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Services were quite acceptable. Had occasional sewer smell that the owner addressed and seem to stay away. Gravel site was fairly level depending on where you parked. Good Wi-Fi and reasonable selection of air TV channels. Pull-through site was spacious. Enjoyed our one night stay but would stay longer. Long term sites were not an issue. We camped at Roughrider Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
