We used one of three pull through sites. One is in use by the campground host. The site was a very tight turn and we needed to use the grass to turn in our 35' rig and toad. The campground is 12 miles off of the interstate, however, it was peaceful and quiet. Cows and their calves greeted us in the morning from the pasture outside our windows. We will return here and investigate the rest of this campground. We camped at Mel Riemen Rec COE in a Motorhome.Undo

We last reviewed this park two years ago, and it's improved since then. A proper dumping station is now available, along with a station with potable water for the rig. Our Tracfone did not work here, but the Verizon air card did. We raised six channels on the antenna. In two years, the price for 50% senior discount has risen to $11 from $8 for an electric-only site. We like this place and would stay again on our way through the area.

Campsites are not especially long, and the main attraction here would be just a bit of hiking and fishing, and being alone. We camped at Mel Riemen Rec COE in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The park has about 10 electric hookups, with at least one 50 amp site. No water or sewer hookups, clean vault privies, with showers available at visitor center in restrooms. There is an unmarked opening in top of the holding tank for the vault privies as a dump station; you have to know to drive on the grass to get to it; no flushing water available. Campground has a bizarre reservation/drive up system. Our site was "reserved out" from under us, even though we submitted payment in the self-pay box, and we had to move. Drive up folks, pay close attention to the directions. Sites were generally not level, but could be adjusted to level easily. Some sites were shallow; we saw two pull through sites. Price reflects a 50% discount for Senior Pass holders (age 62+), making this a very desirable place to stay in spite of the limitations. Also, the views are fantastic. We saw plenty of white pelicans just below the dam, and a huge 100 unit wind farm further up the lake. A lovely scenic byway starts at the dam and heads south for 62 miles. We'd stay here again, or at any of the other campgrounds run by the Corps of Engineers on the lake. We camped at Mel Riemen Rec COE in a Motorhome.Undo

A North Dakota best kept secret: big rig pull-through sites, level, electricity, (about 10 sites) mostly sunny with view, large sites w/table and fire ring, near lake, COE (Corp of Engineers) site so Golden Age and (Am the Beautiful) pass is 1/2 price ($8). Restrooms-showers are immaculate as well as park grounds; boating, fishing, swim beach. No water or sewer at sites. Take I-94 Bus loop through Valley City, then about middle of town go north on 5th Ave NE, under the magnificent Hi-line RR Bridge (this is an all-round cool little town and area, with lots to see for a couple-three days), then fork to left on County Rd 19 (paved) for ~10 miles. Turn right into campground before Bald-hill dam. If Reimen is full, although its a gravel road, even a big rig could go through campground and East for ~3-4 miles and hit County Rd 21 to Eggerts Landing where there is about 40 camp sites.
