Such a fun place!
wrz 2019 • Dla rodziny
This is kind of a hidden gem state park. It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere but it’s so nice and secluded that those who are there are sure to have a good time! The campsites make you feel like you are the only one there even though the campground was full. Electricity was very good and there are plenty of drinking water stations to fill up your fresh water tank. The new visitor center is nice and has coffee and hot chocolate in the morning. The campground host was very quick in delivering firewood. Will definitely be coming back at least once a year. Thank you for the great time!

A beautiful and quiet place to stop and recharge.

In our travel through ND In the last part of June, we stayed over night and wished we had more time to explore the area. As we were driving into Fort Ransome, which is a small quaint town, we were struck by the unique old community feel of the town. The camp ground was well kept and the sites were large and roomy with plenty of trees for shade. If you have the chance take time to explore this hidden gem.

Beautiful park!
lip 2019 • Pary
Had a phenomenal experience when visiting FRSP! Everything is extraordinarily well maintained and clean. We were in the area visiting relatives and decided to stop in for a visit. Needless to say, it could very well be one of our favorite State Parks. And the staff were amazing!! We had a great encounter with one of the Rangers(I believe his name was Daniel), he was able to answer our questions in detail and even gave us a history of the park! We will certainly be returning to camp some time in the future.

Luxury Yurt in Fort Ransom State Park
cze 2019 • Dla rodziny
My 85-year old mom heard about the 2 "luxury yurts" in Fort Ransom State Park, ND, and we decided to try one out. The 2 yurts are identical -- we stayed in the Redetzke yurt. Even though we were in a campground, this was not a normal "tent" experience ... the yurt was very nice, clean, comfy, well-furnished. There were 4 adults (including my mom) in our group -- we had plenty of room.

Air-conditioned for summer, and propane heater for winter! Full kitchen w/stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, pots, pans, cups, plates, utensils. Full bathroom with shower. Nice living room. All you really need to bring are your towels and bedding / sleeping bags.

The yurt has two bedrooms -- each with a queen bed (but no bedding). We used sleeping bags on the beds instead of using sheets, etc. There is a fold-out couch, but beware, it is not really usable as a bed (very uncomfortable). TIP: We wish we would have brought along our inflatable queen mattress -- it would have fit perfectly in the large (empty) loft above the bedrooms.

Very nice park, with plenty of trails and scenic overlook. Watch out -- we picked up plenty of wood ticks while hiking on the longer grass trails, so check yourselves at the end of your hikes.

It was an enjoyable, unique experience!

Bad customer service
cze 2019 • Pary
We had an encounter with the secretary, Cindy C & to say the least, it didn’t go well. She was rude and shouldn’t be anywhere near the customers of the park. She kept saying, “I’m sorry you feel that way.” I had nothing to complain about except her! All we wanted was help with ‘things to do in the area’. All she was concerned with was the fact that we switched sites (only a total of 4 sites taken!) because we were with my 90 year old father & he wanted to be closer to the restrooms. We also had permission from the park ranger (Daniel, who was a jewel) the night before! Cindy should be nowhere near the customers of the park. She has terrible customer service skills. The park itself is also a jewel:)

Where's the Fort?
sie 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Ok...first off, there's no fort. The fort disappeared years ago.The site of the fort is outside the park limits. But...its some of the prettiest scenery in the eastern part of the state. Rolling wooded hills, curves in the road even! Believe me, you'll know what I mean if you ever lived in Fargo area. There is a cute small town same name close by. The park is a great camping area, close to the river with about 29 miles of hiking trails. There's also a nice ranger station there as well with a small but nice display of the area's history.

Too Late for Color :-(
paź 2017 • Pary
Thought we'd take a drive Ft Ransom State Park to check out the colors. Well we were a week too late - virtually no leaves. Drove through the park anyway no one around not much to see anywhere but the Ranger charged us $7 anyway-Goes to a good cause I guess.
Finally stopped at the bar & restaurant in town which helped to highlight a long road trip!

Peaceful and immaculate camping spot!
lip 2017 • Dla rodziny
We landed at Fort Ransom State Park while on a 3-week road trip, each day a new and unplanned adventure. The campground, along with the rest of this park, is gorgeous and very well-kept. These were the best campground bathrooms of our entire trip. Huge campsites in a grassy, shady glen. Excellent walking trails. The Sunne pioneer farm historic site is not to be missed if you stay here. Not a single complaint!

Fantastic park!
lip 2017
This is an incredibly nice, well-maintained beautiful park. I wish we would've known how great this park is because we would've spent more time here. They are having a festival tomorrow called Sodbusting Days, which would've been great to see. They have a yurt here complete with bathroom for $125 a night that sleeps 10. We had a nice walk in the woods here, beautiful weather, nice breeze and no mosquitoes!

Great for horse camping and more!
cze 2017 • Znajomi
This park is a gem of beautiful wooded trails and ridge vistas hidden in the middle of a prairie. Trails are well-marked and well-groomed. The park Rangers are incredibly helpful and friendly. Horse facilities are clean, safe, and well maintained. Individual corrals; some with shade. Water and wheelbarrows are easily accessible. Campsites are shaded, grassy, and most have electricity. The trails are easy to follow and incredibly beautiful. Not a lot of mosquitoes, even though it's on a river. The park also has yurts, a volleyball pit, playgrounds, and more. We'll definitely be going back!
