Where are we going today?

If you want to just get away for a few days with your family in the Bismark area, or are passing through, this family owned campground wants to  make sure you have a fun and relaxing time!

Hillcrest Acres Campground is located just east of Bismark itself, just minutes from the city's tourist attractions.

Most of the RV sites are pull through, and large enough for most RVs, as well as giving you plenty of space to park nearby. There are 30 and 50 amps, but 50 are limited so make sure you reserve if you need one of those.

Want to kick back the old fashioned way? There are primitive tent sites, as well as sites with electric (but you can only reserve tent spots for a two week period)

Set up a roaring campfire and enjoy catching up with your family in the evening (but no outside firewood), or kids you can have a play on the playground with a fun twisty slide and plenty of things to climb and play on!

There is also a basketball hoop if you fancy practicing those long shots - nothing but net!

They offer free wifi, and an onsite laundry and if you want to bring those furry members of the family, then feel free because pets are welcome! 

They have a small convenience store too, if you have found that there are a couple of items you may have missed when packing (in all that excitement!) 

Enjoy the calm nature of North Dakota!

    A very unwelcoming campground.

    We were on a roadtrip across the USA and needed a spot to sleep for the night. We found hillcrest and the front office looked closed (9pm) so we went to find a spot for our tent. We planned on paying in the morning. After being in bed for an hour and almost asleep the manager lady came and woke us up and told us that there was no tent camping. She was very angry and would not let us stay the night even though it was 10:15pm. We packed up our tent and hit the road and slept in Jamestown.

    The park is an odd combination...Read More

    The morning after checking in our credit card fraud department called about fraudulent activities. Not blaming the campground but letting them know they may have been hacked, the old lady became very defensive and rude. We were suppose to have full hookups but when we got there all they had was electric only. No problem, I asked if I could fill my water tank. This seemed to be a big problem for them. Our camp site was in a rv storage lot. It was the first time my wife and I felt unsafe. I teach in an inner city school, this place was getto....Read More

    Would NOT recommend this RV Park!! They make you disconnect water every night. If you don't,no water at all. when instead of being professional and being cordial when something isn't to their liking, they are as rude and abrupt as you can imagine. Rather pay twice as much than to tolerate these people.

    We have been staying at this campground for years and would recommend it. The new owners have upgraded the park in many ways. They have added a laundry facility, free WiFi and added some 50 amp services. The owners have told me the bathroom facility will be completely renovated before the 2010 season. The sites are a little tight but the quiet, friendly atmosphere makes up for it. The camphosts and manager are very friendly. Easy access to I94 and the location makes for a quick trip into Bismarck.

The park is an odd combination of trailer houses and RVs. Lots of hwy noise can be heard from the campsites.

Like the other reviewers said, the host is not friendly and I would not recommend staying here.

Our camp site was in a rv storage lot. It was the first time my wife and I felt unsafe. I teach in an inner city school, this place was getto. When leaving, I stopped at the dump station which had no water for clean up. The angry old lady came roaring up in her golf cart and preceded to try to start a fight with me. We clean up after our dogs. She accused us of not. She would not listen. She then kicked us off the property. When I refused to leave until I had emptied my tanks, she called the cops. We left and dumped at a gas station down the road. My wife felt sorry for her believing something terrible must have happened to this woman in her life to make her so angry and ugly inside.

** Service: HORRIBLE! Old lady manager is psycho. +THE MGR. MAKES EVERYTHING ELSE NOT WORTH RENTING HERE!) Lots are getting empty and summer has just started.

The renting turnover is crazy here. The old lady manager is insane! She is worse than Mrs Peenman off the movie "the Mask". She has a long record at the police station with harassment, etc... only knowing this from all the neighbors who have called the cops on her. The station said she has a big history of complaints.
She Most def. has a short fuse and It almost seems as though she trys to find reasons to beat on customers doors to complain.
Daily basis.. (we're hardly here, so we get ridiculous letters taped to the camper..cuz it apply to everyone. Whether it be the internet usage (which we don't use), dog poop in the grass by our campsite (we have no pets here.-not cleaning up other people's animal feces), how close we are parked to our camper (we parked a work vehicle 2 feet from where she wanted.. only because the guy across the road who lives in a trailer house has BACKED INTO our PARKED vehicles TWICE. ) The manager makes u park directly behind or in front of your camper. No questions. Someone backs into you, it's not her problem.

I've got a water and electric spot, and we have gone through neighbors like crazy. Luckily, I work all day, everyday so I am hardly at the trailer & camper park. I have only been spazed on once. For driving the speed limit (literally). I respect that signs posted say 10 mph. She freaked out (as if I had murdered her family or something) yelling about how at night, speed is 5 mph. - which there are no signs stating that.

You would think paying $500.00/month that would get some respect. At least courteous warning and not a psycho who's having a spaz-attack.

It's $15.00 or $30.00 per extra person if you have more then 2 people in your camper. Whether it be one night or one month..

The camp in Mandan is cheaper, courteous managers.. and sadly it's booked full. There is also another camp about ten miles from this one that has a pool, basketball court, very nice managers.. and they're booked full too. We just lost another group of nice, sweet old neighbors today who also had called the cops on the manager. They just informed the crazy mgr that the washing machine not working, and the manager went crazy on the poor elder lady/renter.. lots are getting empty fast here. We will be moving when the next camp has an opening for water and electric.
