Eagles Campground or a Free Lot?

Beulah, North Dakota is a small town in the middle of the state. It's economy is based on low grade coal which is pit mined and eventually converted to methane. Our interest was Riverside City Park at the south edge of the town and Eagles Campground, adjacent to the park, where we were planning to spend the night. But this is where we ended up instead.
When we arrived at Eagles Campground we found it completely empty and deserted looking. The address on the sign is incorrect. A quick search yielded a phone number however we were informed that the man in charge of unlocking the dump station was gone for the weekend. The campground is unappealing and, for us, not worth the money without a dump station which is how we ended up just a few blocks away at a free, city parking lot. I've since discovered that camping is also permitted at the much more attractive Riverside Park but it's lacking a dump station. I recommend reserving a site online if you wish to stay at either park just to avoid confusion and inconvenience. The free lot was noisy due to very close train tracks. Train noise may also be a problem at both parks. Eagles Campground  47.25535, -101.78631
