Surrounded by dense forests that double as hunting grounds come wintertime, Wolf Creek Campground is a mid-sized overnight area that features a children's playground, easy lakeshore access, and updated amenities, all for just $12 per night.
Conveniences like modern restrooms and grilling surfaces have made Wolf Creek a great destination for out-of-state travelers who are weary from hours on the road, and just want a little something extra. Sixty-seven sites are available in the area, all of which come with an outdoor table and grilling surface. Take note that these sites are all walk-up, which means no paved areas or parking surfaces for overnight guests. If you've got a canine with you, be sure to keep them restrained, as fellow campers tend to be surprised by unannounced visits from Fido. If they're spending the night, dogs are required to spend the evening in your tent.
Summertime activities are abundant at Wolf Creek, thanks to the nearby Lake Sakakawea. If you're a fisher, you're in for a treat, as the lake regularly provides anglers with a record catch or two almost every year. Species found here include muskie and largemouth bass among others, and do occasionally require tags before being caught and kept. You can clean your catch at the fish-cleaning station on-site. For more information on the particulars for fishing in Lake Sakakawea, be sure to give the state DNR a call before your stay.
Swimming is available on the lake, provided you're okay with the lack of lifeguards. Canines must be leashed at the swimming area as well as the campground. They also have to keep out of the waters in any of the marked public swimming regions. Prefer to play on land? Kiddie campers will love the volleyball court and horseshoe pits!
If you and your family -- four-legged members included -- are looking for a true back-to-nature camping experience, Wolf Creek is the pawfect destination for your next vacation!
