US RT 2 across ND

We will be headed out West taking US RT 2 from the U.P. in MI to Glacier N.P. Any suggestions for nice campgrounds or "must see" items? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. We are headed out after the Labor day weekend.

We went the opposite direction last Fall. The Great Lakes information Center makes a nice mid day break stop. We mostly stayed at KOA but found a nice City/County park between Gladstone and Escanaba.

We really enjoyed the Duluth area and stayed 2 nights at the KOA in Carlton.

We stayed a couple of nights in a city park in Crookston MN. Not really too much there but I did some research on my great gand parents who lived a few miles up the road in Fisher.

Crossing prairies, we spent nights in Minot ND, and Malta Mt. to avoid Williston. The Roughrider park in Minot was mostly full timers and old. The city park in Malta was just off the highway, a bit rustic, but inexpensive. Not too bad for overnight but definately not a resort.

At Glacier, we stayed in the KOA at West Glacier (Halfmoon Flats) it was pretty nice with large soots.

Along the way, there are a number of museums and attraction but the mostly v were closed by late September. We were using the US Routes guide. Sorry, I forget the name and the MH is not hear v right now.

Have fun.

Thanks coupevillefish! How was US RT 2? The maps show it to be good highway and mostly divided. I have been on it in MI before but not for many years. Just thought it would be nice to stay off the interstates for a change.

I would say it was mostly 2 lane with sections of divided. We did it with our 35' GT plus toad and had no concerns at all.

We were quite surprised at the amount of productive farm land and forest across the country starting in Everett, WA. Almost all of it was being used.

Again many thanks for your input. This trip is something I have dreamed about all my life. I have done a lot of travelling and camping over the years but it was always hurry, hurry, hurry. Have to get back to work etc. Well now the wife and I are retired and looking forward to just taking our time and NOT being in a hurry. Safe travels to u my friend

Medora in western ND is a great place, Teddy Roosevelt National park is right there also. Western ND has some great sights.
Medora also has a CG, not the best....but not bad, gravel, pretty level but a little cramped, ok for an overnighter

Well hello KG7JCA! Always nice to meet another ham camper. Check me out on QRZ.com, I have some pics of me and my station here in KY. I live in FL in winter but don't have any place to put up an antenna there, lots of restrictions. I was going to try and put my rig in the camper for this trip but I decided against it. This is a new camper for us(used one time) so I will be busy shaking down everything I am sure. Maybe the next trip I can get set up for some ham radio. Again very nice to meet David and maybe in the future we can talk again.

I need to join qrz. I installed a 2 meter antenna on the back of the MH and joined several nets on our cross country trip. HF is next but at home first.

Enjoy

I'll second the KOA in West Glacier. Just got back from there. Nice facilities, wonderful slots with views.
