Little Yellowstone Park, open April through November deer gun season, is a 27 acre campground and multi-use recreation area located 4 miles south and 1 mile east of Kathryn on State Highway 46. The park is nestled in the hills and valley along the Sheyenne River with a small spring-fed stream running through the park.
Bev Anderson manages 2 part-time staff and oversees the day to day operation of the park. The park is managed by the Barnes County Park Board and provides 34 campsites – 14 electrical and 20 more secluded primitive (non-electrical) campsites. Some of the nicest sites are located in the upper portion of the park. They do not have electrical hook-ups but provide seclusion and are perfect for tents and small campers.
Little Yellowstone Park is a rest stop along the Sheyenne River Valley National Scenic Byway and also has hiking trails throughout the park with quaint little bridges across the stream.Fees: $15 per night for primitive units

In 2006 a walking bridge was installed by the Barnes County Highway Department. This bridge originally came from Ransom County and was built in the early 1900s. Highway crews renovated this old bridge into a unique and historic walking bridge. Be sure to check it out on your next visit to the Park.
