The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, awarded a $244,000 contract to AMG Construction Company, out of Banning, California, to update its Lake Ashtabula West Crossing Campground, near Valley City, North Dakota.

The project includes upgrading the campgrounds electrical and water systems and enlarging camping pads to accommodate today’s larger recreational vehicles and travel trailers. The campground was originally designed and built in the 1960s.

Construction will begin this spring and is scheduled for completion in 2024. Camping will not be permitted at this campground during the construction due to safety concerns; however, Lake Ashtabula’s other campgrounds will remain open. Reservations can be made at

“The St. Paul District is committed to continuing to provide safe recreational opportunities for the general public during construction,” said Scott Tichy, Corps of Engineers Lake Ashtabula manager. “We look forward to completing these upgrades at this campground, so families can continue to enjoy Lake Ashtabula for years to come.”
