We had such a wonderful stay at ISP! Our campsite was large, it was quiet, and it was clean. The swimming beach was so clean, the water had very little seaweed, and we thought it was beautiful-sandy beach with a large shady grassy hill area...More

Enjoyed a recent camping trip to Icelandic State Park (ISP) and truly enjoyed this gem. The entrance road winds you over the lake to a beautiful fully treed park with paved roads and easy drive-thru campsites. Primitive camping is available but is not for me...More

Great little park. We didn't do any camping, but we got to see the church and some other interesting things. The church is beautiful. I wish we would have been able to go inside.

We stayed there three nights on a weekend in a well-cared for campground. I especially enjoyed the short hiking trail through the nature preserve. We saw the North Dakota state flower, the wild prairie rose, blooming there. And there were very few mosquitos! The museum...More

This is the second time I have stopped here. There are nice churches to shoot, a barn or two and lots of rusted farm machinery and a few vintage cars. Best time to shoot is early morning or late in the day.

Went camping with family and friends. Good amenities, great sites and friendly staff. Only reservation is the water when swimming in the dammed lake; it can be a little green and less than ideal. Rinse after swimming to get ahead of any rashes.
