Lakeside Marina & Campground

We’ve left Minnesota and are about 1/3 of the way across North Dakota along I-94 and just north of the small town of Jamestown.  There are several county owned campground around the Jamestown Reservoir.

We’re parked in sites 11, 13, 15 at the Lakeside Marina and Campground.  There are 48 water and electric sites in this campground, each fairly level back-in sites with plenty of room between them.  Each site has a fire pit and picnic table.  The campground also has a well maintained shower house, restrooms, a dump station and several as they call them “no frills cabins”.

This campground is a bit difficult to find, and may show up incorrectly on GPS and even the Good Sam system.  The easiest route from the east is to exit I-94 at 87th Ave to the north, turn left on 34th Street which will take you around the airport, then north again on 12th Ave.  Turn right at the cemetery on 32nd Street and the entrance will be on your left.  Payment is made either at the marina office just beyond the campground (parking not suitable for an RV) or at the on-site payment station with cash or check.

Even though this quiet campground is a bit off the trail (about 12 miles north of I-94) it’s a great find, and we’d stay here again.
