Williams County Park Board to offer seasonal campsites at Blacktail Dam for 2021
Williston, N.D., (March 22, 2021) – For the first time ever, the Williams County Park Board will be offering seasonal campsites at Blacktail Dam. During their meeting last week, Park Board Commissioners approved ten sites to be selected for long-term camping from May 1st through September 30th at a cost of $1,750 per site.
Sites will be selected by Williams County Parks Director Jeremy Ludlum and will be available through a lottery system, which will open on March 29, 2021. Seasonal camping offers campers a savings of $110 over paying nightly. Only one RV or camper will be allowed per site; tent camping will not be permitted.
“Selecting 10 spots will give us a way to see if we have people interested in seasonal camping and see if we want to do it again in future years” says Ludlum. “We hope that this trial run for seasonal camping encourages use of the park over our warmer months as well as make it more convenient for those that don’t want to move their camper often” he adds.
Lottery entries will be accepted until 5 pm on Friday, April 16th. Sites will be drawn during the regular Park Board meeting on April 20, 2021, which begins at 9:30 am in the Williams County Commission Room.
