Very well maintained park. Staff is friendly and very attentive. The best things to do here would be walk, or jog if you like, the trails and go out on the water. Just make sure you call ahead of time to reserve a spot to camp at because they fill up fast. If you want to tent in an RV spot be warned that they only allow 1 tent per site. I found this out the hard way and had to spend 3 times as much.

I went to the Icelandic State Park for the day because I have family staying there, and found it to be a very well laid out campground. There is a lot of room between campers which means that everyone has their privacy. The campground is well-maintained, and a day pass costs $7 US. Shopping is available in Cavalier which is only a few minutes drive away from the state park. I was impressed with everything I saw!

Prepare to pay twice for the daily vehicle pass. We visited the park July 18 2018 and from information obtained from their web site we expected to pay a 7 dollar daily vehicle pass and 17 dollars for a overnight primitive camping spot. We were informed the site would not be 24 dollars but 31 dollars since we had to pay twice for the daily vehicle pass. They rationalized this charge by stating that we were technically there for two days even though we planned to stay less than 24 hours. The reservation clerk did not appear comfortable with this surprise charge and we decided not to complain since this was a illogical top down rule that she unfortunately had to enforce. This extra charge made no sense to us and we felt cheated by it. Aside from this ridiculous extra charge we enjoyed the excellent facilities but left with a bad taste in our mouths. Not recommended.

Our FAVORITE place to camp! We have been spoiled by the excellent facilities (washrooms are very clean), great staff. The campground is well laid out and well maintained. We have been coming here for 20 years and will keep coming back.

It is a great spot for a picnic or camping trip. The grounds are clean and well managed, and organized so that primitive camping is seperate from the RV section. There is also an interpretive center with a museum of Pembina County history. Very good spot to get away!
