Parshall Bay Rec Area is open for camping from May 15th to September 15th yearly.

Parshall Bay is the place to be for fun in the summer sun. We are located on the North East corner of the Van Hook Arm overlooking the second largest man-made lake in the United States, North Dakota's very own beautiful Lake Sakakawea.

We offer just about everything you need for a weekend of fishing or a week away from the hustle and bustle of life. 

We have 73 total hook-ups with electrical, 7 sites with electric and water, 7 sites with electric, water and sewer, and plenty of primitive camping available in our 3 sections of Park. We can always find room for you tent campers or those of you that have quiet generators.

We have a showerhouse so you can clean up after spending the day at the lake whether it be fishing, playing in the water or just soaking up the sun rays and playing in the sand at the beach. All facilities on site are deep cleaned daily. There are 7 outhouses located throughout the Park, 2 fish cleaning stations for all you anglers out there to clean your catch of the day, 3 boat launches with courtesy docks, 2 different playground areas and a new basketball court. 

We recently added a Pavilion which is located within the Main Park near the new playground. It is great to use for large family reunions, parties, work meetings, etc. There is a small charge for the use of it so it can be reserved. Please reach out to Morgan for more information.

So, as you can see fun can be had here by all members of the family.  Don't hesitate any longer, pack up your camping supplies and come give us a try.  We look forward to seeing you real soon.

Feel free to contact Morgan at the Park Office 701-862-3362 or email her at parshallbayrec@outlook.com if you have any questions.
