We stayed in Lindenwood City Park Campground while in Fargo, which is located right on the Red River. Section B of the campground, where we originally were suppose to camp, is still closed because of flooding.
The banks of the Red River as seen from the Fargo side, with Moorhead, MN across the river. The walking bridge, half of which has been sweep away by the flood waters, is one of many projects the park has to get things back to normal. .
As we entered ND, Jan was driving our new RV. Jan took driving lessons at the Winnebago GNR, but this was her first time behind the wheel on an Interstate......As you can see she was taking it very seriously.
Traveled from Granite Falls, MN to Watertown, SD on highway 212. There was 100% improvement in the roads between MN and SD. Found that in general the highways in MN are terrible and had items moving all over the place in the RV.
The City Band of Watertown plays concerts every Tuesday evening during the summer at the Stokes-Thomas Park, where we happened to be staying in the campground.....made for a very pleasant evenings activity.
The city park is right on the shore of Lake Kampeska, which has experienced alot of flooding this Spring and Summer. You can see some of the floor waters in the foreground, which actually had 1/2 the campground closed.
We heard the City Band for a second time here at the Monastary.
The Ingalls family first arrived in Walnut Grove in 1874 when Laura was 7 years old. Their first home was a dugout along the banks of plum Creek. Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote the series of books titled "The Little House On the Prairie". These books were made into a very popular TV series of the same name.
Interior of dugout....
This is representative of a one room country school, which Laura would have attended and later taught in one similar in the Dakota Territory.
We spent several days at this great campground, which is part of Prairies Edge Casino Resort in Granite Falls, MN. Was nice to have a full hookup site in order to clean the RV and get laundry done after the Winnebago GNR in IA.
