In desperation we pulled into this campground in the pouring rain even after reading previous reviews. Only available site was "electric" only. Office said it was actually $30.00 for 30 amp electric but after-hours sign said $25.00. Site was in the middle of a weedy field surrounded by an array of dilapidated trailers, old motorhomes and junk. Will be out of here at the crack of dawn. Even locked all our hatches! We camped at Buffalo Trails Campground in a Motorhome.

At lot of permanent residents with run down trailers. It was a little creepy. Glad we were only staying for one night. The grass was over grown. There was no picnic tables. We camped at Buffalo Trails Campground in a Motorhome.

We used this as a one night stop. It is a friendly family owned park with large open sites in a field. We stayed there in a 36' 5th wheel and would use it again. We camped at Buffalo Trails Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This CG is primarily for long-term oil workers living in towables and class Cs. Appears that in better days it was a KOA, but it has now fallen into serious disrepair. The outer door to the ladies’ restroom was missing entirely; of the three shower stalls in the men’s room one was out of order, one had the water control all taped up with electrical tape and the remaining one had no locking hardware and looked like it had been painted after the hardware had been torn off. The bath houses were as clean as can be expected for very old facilities, but several clients’ towels had been left strewn about. No cable, no WI-FI and one of the public telephones had been ripped off the wall. The workers leave their dogs at the sites all day and the dogs don’t much like it. When we were there, four children were running amok with little to no supervision, squirting water pistols in about the bath houses (turning the sand into mud) and being nipped by an unchained dog. This to be expected: it’s not that the rules aren’t being enforced, but rather that there are no rules given out in the first place. It is open field camping with no trees; at least the hookups work well. The staff was friendly enough and apparently functional, but obviously, because of the nature of the clientele, they haven’t repaired, replaced or improved anything in quite some time. TL needs to visit again, as they don’t even have the number of sites correct. All that said, we were grateful for its existence: not one hotel room was available in any of Williston’s several hotels because of the huge number of oil workers booked in. Our advice is to avoid Williston, ND entirely and find another route to or from the Canadian border. A pity, because the town and shopping looks pretty reasonable. We camped at Buffalo Trails Campground in a Motorhome.
