Fargo, North Dakota has a lot to offer to RV campers. Nestled on the banks of the Red River, Fargo itself has plenty of great outdoor opportunities for campers. At the same time, it is perched on the intersection of I-94 and I-29, making it a convenient travel stop for RV campers on their way to Minnesota, Montana or points in the Dakotas. Finally, the city has well-equipped RV campgrounds, both inside the city limits and in the nearby area.
Lindenwood Campground is described by Fargo's parks department as "one of the finest campgrounds in the Upper Midwest." The campground is located in a heavily wooded site in a park that is in Fargo itself, and adjacent to the Red River. Lindenwood offers 46 RV sites with water and electrical hookups, picnic tables and fire pits. The campground amenities include a bathhouse, two playgrounds, firewood sales, dump station and biking trails. Rental bikes are available at the campground information center. In addition to biking, the campground has immediate access to riverside walking trails and fishing. Lindenwood Campground is open from early May to mid-October, and is just off I-94's Exit 351.
