Erin Henning

Well kept campground, very peaceful. One of our favorite getways

Shirley DeWitz

West sites are a bit close but the cleanliness & view make up for it.


Nice park albeit tight spots and not enough monitoring. Dogs off leash, cars parked in rv spaces.

Aaron Bjugstad

The staff was very accomodating. The campground was very clean and well maintained. We used a primitive tenting location and couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Ruth Coughlin

Wonderful place to go. Have been going there for years.

Tiffany Mcmahen

Beautiful , peaceful well kept campground

Kaylah Stangler

Subtracted one star just because I requested an electrical outlet for the two nights we tented (and paid extra for it) and none of the outlets had electricity. I couldn't get ahold of anyone to fix it so we just made due. Other than that it was a lovely place to camp.

Lori Wiederholt

Enjoyed our stay.

There were several campers who partied loudly until 2 am. We had to buy a longer power cord because the electric site we were in was 35 ft away from the plug and we still ended up having to move our camper forward several feet. There was trash all over the campground. The fire pit was very far from our campsite. The water smelled of the worst well farts. The water had blue green alge so we couldn’t swim. There was an extra charge for my second dog (this is not a hotel people).

Shari Elijah-Lemna

Campgrounds clean, bathrooms clean, good people and great fun!

Susan Kurtz

Great campground with awesome beach!

Rachel Bjerke

We tented 2 weekends in a row. Paid for electricity the first weekend and there is nothing telling you where to access your electricity. Unstaffed office at all times so don’t expect to be able to buy firewood or get any information if needed. Nice campground though

Sharon Poeppel

Very nice campground. Nice beach to play in. Has a fishing dock and a boat dock. Two separate camping areas which we didn't know they were very helpful in getting us close to our family. Thanks Dead Colt Creek .


I stayed at a tent site for a total of 8 days over the past two weeks, and I was very satisfied with the quality of the camping site/area and the amenities, for only $10/night! The recreation area is nice and well-maintained. The staff is friendly and reasonable.

Loren Hanson

The park was well maintained. Sites were well laid out and big enough for vehicles. When we arrived at 1pm on the 19th, the dump station was full, but about 5 minutes after we arrived, the service man came and emptied it. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay very much and will be back.

Royce Aardahl

Great campground. East to set up thru rover pass.

Tom Haus

We bike packed the Sheyenne scenic byway and spent a night there on a tent site Beautiful views, clean facilities and a nice breeze . Perfect

Diane FitzPatrick

Been coming to Dead Colt Creek since the mid 90's and all the upgrades over the years has improved for all to enjoy....just this year a new fishing dock next to the boat ramp that is safer for smaller kids to enjoy, outhouse bathrooms are the cleanest ever and no odor

Michael Krause

Very clean and well maintained campground. Much bigger than I thought with a lot to do. Only $20 a night with water and electrical hookups. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Erin Henning
