Beaver Creek Recreation Area–camp hosting week 1

After leaving Fort Stevenson State Park, we moved on to Beaver Creek Recreation Area, which is 16 miles west of Linton, or about 53 miles south of Bismarck. It’s an Army Corps of Engineers park, which is new to us.

For 20 hours of work a week (10 hours each) we get a free campsite with full hookups near the ranger booth and can watch people come and go. We pick up litter, check the comfort station and vault toilets, check the roster and walk campground, greet guests and answer questions. They have a contractor who comes in to clean the comfort station and vault toilets, empty fire pits, and empty cans at the fish cleaning station. 

There are 61 total sites, with 30 amp electric and primitive sites. They have a comfort station with showers, vault toilets, dump station, fish cleaning station, a couple water spigots in the campground, boat docks and two playgrounds.  A pontoon comes from Prairie Knights Casino on weekends to take people back to their casino and returns them, a minimum of 3 hours.

Most of the electric sites were taken this weekend, only a couple primitive. The weather was hot, upper 90’s, and air conditioners were running pretty constantly. It was windy on Saturday, but nice on Sunday and there were a lot of boats on the water.

We went to Linton on a day off to talk to someone in the post office to see if we could get mail sent there. Curt has been able to go fishing on our down time.
