Want to “reach out and touch someone”?  Then this place is for you!

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
Some exterior road noise from I-94 about .5 miles away, but
there was also some kind of grain silo operation on adjacent
property that produced plenty of noise.  There was no on-site
management here, just a woman who dropped by to pick up
the checks/cash (no credit cards accepted).  The atmosphere
was lower-end working people staying in mostly ratty
trailers.  We did not like this place at all, and can’t think of
anyone who would.

Road and site access/type?
Gravel throughout, and the sites were all pull-throughs with
back-to-back utilities and tiny grass areas that faced each
other.  One of the most cramped parks we have been to.

Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
Well, I said it above.  Sites were long enough to
accommodate a long RV and car, but spacing between sites
was terribly cramped.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The full hookup 50-amp power was good, and water
pressure was adequate.  The Verizon signal to our phones
and boosted hotspot was also OK.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Just a table, no fire pit and no fires allowed accept grills.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
These were actually fairly nice.  The bathrooms and
showers were modern and clean, and the showers had
benches and hooks.  The laundry room consisted of two
washers, two dryers and a large folding table.

Pet and/or kid friendly?
Not kid friendly at all, this is not a family park.  There
were a couple of fairly large grassy areas where dogs
could be walked, and although they were supposed to
be on leash there was no management to monitor folks
so dogs ran freely.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
Nope.  Nothing directly out of the park, and it was a
25-minute drive to beautiful Abraham Lincoln State
Park which had wonderful paths for walking and riding.

Grocery stores and other services nearby?
The city of Bismarck was 12 miles away, and it had many
stores, restaurants and other services that could take
care of just about any RV needs.

Comments:
Wow, did I blow it when I picked this place to stop along
our route!  I usually don’t like to camp in large cities, but
I really wish I had selected the KOA in Bismarck or any
other place but this one.  I can’t find anything good to
report about this park – the location is not good, the dust
and noise aren’t good, the crowded sites aren’t good, and
it’s overpriced.  It might be OK for an overnight stop
when you have no need to sit outside and enjoy yourself,
but otherwise I urge folks to look elsewhere.
