  • I came here on a day off from working in the area. It was only about a 20 to 30 minute drive from East Grand Forks, MN. The entry fee was $5, so I thought why not? The only down side was the restrooms...  more »

  • Turtle River State Park is such a nice unassuming area tucked away in a spot you wouldn't expect. Driving west from Grand Forks to get there you just start to leave the Red River Valley region and don't expect a place so peaceful and enjoyable to be tucked a mile off the highway. The facilities are well taken care of and the ranger staff is always helpful. Take a hike or two and enjoy.
  • $5 admission to the park. Camping areas, picnic areas, cabins. There is a lodge for events that has very good AC and nice bathrooms. In the July is is very hot a buggy in the grassy areas. There is a spot where you can swim in the very small river with an adjacent grassy area and a covered picnic area (available for rent for events) up a small hill.
  • Very suprised at how much we liked this place. Great trails and plenty to do. The spaces are a little to close together for my liking and like all North Dakota State campgrounds a sewer hookup is not avaliable. Make sure to get a ND state park pass as well, or you will be ticketed.
  • Fun to walk around. Not difficult to traverse and we'll maintained trails
  • Clean, nice for a walk. Christmas lights already being set . lots of friendly geese
