Buffalo River State Park
35 electrical sites
Dump Station is right before you turn into the camp ground
Buffalo River State Park is miles away from the North Dakota boarder. 13 miles away from Moorhead, MN.
What is special about this park is the Largest and highest qualiy of tall prairie grass in the US. It is managed by the park and Natural Conservatory and MSU Moorehead. East side of the park is MSUM Regional Science Center Land. When class isn't in session you can hike their trail. more than 3 miles of a loop leading into another loop. Southwest side of the park is the Bluestem Prairie Scientific and Natural Area (SNA), make sure you spray your bug spray on all parts of your body. It is about a 2 mile loop. The trail is mowed grass and full of mosquitoes. The prairie grass along the trial is tall and later it changes to shorter grass you can see over the prairie. So many different plants and flowers. The Muskoda Trail is about a .45 mile loop from the camp ground. Nice view of the short prairie grass with some interpretive signs along the trail. The interpretive sign explain the land and the history of the family who owned the land original.
The swimming pool was closed due to Covid 19. In 1930s Works Progress Administration built some building which can be seen near the swimming pool areas and bathrooms.
Buffalo River camp ground has 40 sites and 35 are electrical sites. This camp ground is small and far away form the road but not from the train. The sites are not lovel but there are piles of rock near the dump station, so maybe next time it will be. Each site is spread out from the next site. The loop with people behind you, well that is close. The camp ground is the open concept from camp site to camp site. But because of the spacing it isn't that bad. The train are very loud after dinner time.
