Bismarck, ND – All North Dakota State Parks return to full-service amenities this Friday, May 19. While the campgrounds are open year-round, some amenities are only available seasonally. In addition to camping, park guests can look forward to special events, educational programming, tours and fishing amenities returning for the summer. State Parks also offer a variety of rental equipment for guests including canoes, kayaks, bikes, stand-up paddleboards, and much more.
This season, guests are invited to stay in new cabins at Grahams Island State Park and Turtle River State Park. Additionally, this season is the first full year for the new south campground loop at Fort Stevenson State Park. Later this summer, Lake Metigoshe State Park, Fort Stevenson State Park and Lake Sakakawea State Park will have expanded rentals to include pontoon boats.
“We are excited to welcome guests for another great season of camping and summer recreation across our state parks and recreation areas,” said Cody Schulz, North Dakota Parks and Recreation Director. “After a tremendous winter recreation season, we are thrilled to offer park visitors even more opportunities and services to explore.”
The mission of the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department is to enrich generations through experiences that connect people and places.
