Boaters aren't the only ones enjoying their time along the river.
(Tim Nilsen / Morton County Parks Dir.) "People come down here from all over. We have people come down here from as far as Alaska, but locally generations and generations come here. Very popular spot." 
Tim Nilsen is the Director of the Parks in Morton County.
This camping area has 27 electrical hookups.
Crews are working to add 20 more.
