Review of CCC Campground Review in Grassy Butte, North Dakota
July / August 2015 – 5 Nights
The campground is in or right on the edge of the North Dakota Badlands and sits right across the river from the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It is an open area with no trees, but the scenery around you is beautiful as the land all around you rises up.
Most campsite have quite a bit of space between them. It is all grass with no shrubs, so there is no barrier between campsites, but the spacing is quite good.
For being an all rustic campground, it is pretty good. Some of the sites were missing picnic tables, but all appeared to have fire rings. Grass and weeds have overgrown some of the drive / parking areas, but others were very nice. There is no electricity or running water. The water from the hand pump was a bit rusty and would suggest packing your own water. Outhouses were very clean and there is, what looks to be a new pavilion. They actually did come in and mow while we were there also.
There is a trail head for both the Long X and Maah Daah Hey Trail from this campground that are open to Mountain Biking, Hiking and Horseback Riding.
Do not know of any boating opportunities.
Do not know of any fishing opportunities.
There is no playground, but there is plenty of room for the kids to run around and ride bikes. It is a rustic campground only.
We camped here because the start line for the Maah Daah Hey 100 mountain bike race was at this campground. I would stay here again for the same reason or if you were interested in visiting the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, which is right across the river.
