Very nice corps of engineer park. Price reflects our Golden Age Pass. Spaces are large and it has a park like feeling. It is full on weekends, but during the week it is very quiet. Staff is very friendly and helpful. All roads are paved as the sites are and they are fairly level. We camped here in a travel trailer and will definitely return. The only downside is that you have to travel 38 miles for a laundromat. If you have satelitte tv one has to choose your site carefully due to the large number of trees. - Sharlou

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

Stayed here two nights in site 26 while passing through with a 27 foot motorhome and a tow car. Price reflects Senior Pass discount. Another well laid out COE campground. I was there in the middle of the week and had a site that backed up to Lake Audubon. Hardly anyone else there. Sites are gravel and level and easy to access. No shade at the sites on the lake and only a little in other places. There are two loops -- one with electric and one for tent campers. The tent sites were really nice -- some back in the woods and some right on the lake. There is a small but nice sand/gravel beach at the end of the primitive loop along with a small playground and there is also a completely separate day use area with a boat ramp. Sitting out in the lake breeze watching the white pelicans and other birds was absolutely lovely. That night the storm hit --25 MPH winds for 5 hours straight and the wind was aimed right at the campground. Between the howling wind, the shaking RV, and the crashing of waves it was rather a restless night. Suddenly the major rock bulkhead on the lake shore made sense. The family a few sites down in a trailer picked up and left early. Warning: if you need to fill up with water you need to take an immediate right after you turn off the main road into the campground to access the dump/fill station. There is a sign that tells you the location on the way out but not on the way in. I completely missed it. This is also the location of the fish cleaning bench. - SoloRed

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

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

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

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

After driving on a road tore up with construction for 20 miles we waited approximately 8 minutes or so while people purchased items from the store which was also the check in. Our ND state employee never smiled and never offered up the annual park pass that would have waived the 7.00 a night "camping fee". We typically avoid state parks for many reasons. There is no shower symbol on the "paper work"we were given, found out all valuable info from our camping neighbor. More info and maybe a smile might motivate the weary traveler to spend more time in ND. The setting was lovely but the check in process made me want to scream. Without the pass it is not a good value. - Onebigbirdlover

Price reflects a 16 day/night stay. Gravel interior roads and sites. Lots of potholes on the interior roads. All angled pull-throughs. Sites are 55 foot long. Have grass between the sites, a picnic table and two small trees. No campfires. Be sure to have a water filter because each time I turned on the water to fill a bucket with water to clean the bugs off the car I got a little bit of rusty water. Wi-Fi worked great. Got three channels on the TV antenna, but came in poor. There is a Red Box across the street at the grocery store. Did hear a train air horn from time to time. Very quiet campground, even over the 4th of July. Easy in and out for a HDT and trailer (60 foot combo) - Tallboy

This is a city park in Hazen. It is a very nice place with level sites and plenty of grass. There are a fair number of trees in the park, but most are not tall enough to interfere with satellite reception. Roads and sites are dirt/gravel. The utilities are good. Wi-Fi was weak at the site, so we used our Verizon air card. All the sites are pull-through. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is in a very quiet location, but within walking distance to a grocery store. Some of the sites are occupied by seasonal residents, but most of the rigs were relatively new and in good repair. The rate shown reflects our Escapees discount. - ghatfield

The location was good. The facilities was close and kept clean on a daily basis. Had access to the facilities 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The common area had 8 private rooms that had a toliet, sink, and shower and it was cleaned everyday. There wasn't any neighbors being loud or disturbing. This was a good campground and I would stay here again if I work in this area. - Victor Stead

Price is comparable to everything else around the area. Friendly and enjoyable staff in the office. Park is new so still being developed. They seam to be working on it on a daily basis. They have shower facility's and washer and dryer that you can access 24 hours a day. Parking spots are pull through with picnic tables for every lot. All utilities work well. Roads and lots are gravel and level. Constantly upgrading the area and shower/laundry area. Very Clean. I stayed here while working and will stay here again when working out this way next time. - Nolimts
