North Dakota is the 39th state of the United States, having been admitted to the union on November 2, 1889. It is located in the Upper Midwestern region of the United States, bordered by the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba to the north, the state of Minnesota to the east, South Dakota to the south, and Montana to the west. The state capital is Bismarck, and the largest city is Fargo. North Dakota is the 19th most extensive but the 3rd least populous, and the 4th least densely populated in the country. North Dakota has weathered the Great Recession of the early 21st century with a boom in natural resources, particularly in oil extraction from the Bakken formation which lies beneath the northwestern part of the state.
Although North Dakota is not known as a popular vacation hot spot, it has its share of attractions which we are sure you will enjoy. We have listed down our favorite attractions, and campsites for an RV rental in North Dakota.
Composed of three separate wildlife areas, this national park is named for President Theodore Roosevelt, a noted naturalist and outdoorsman. His Elkhorn ranch, the second of his ranches that he purchased after falling in love with North Dakota on a buffalo hunt, gives name to the Elkhorn Ranch Unit of the park. The main attraction here, besides the sparse and empty beauty of the badlands, is the wildlife. Roosevelt’s beloved buffalo can be found here, as well as various types of deer, elk, wild horses, sheep and prairie dogs.
In the winter of 1804, the famed explorers Lewis and Clark built the fort over which this overlook is situated. It was here that they met their equally famous Native guide, Sacagawea. Because the fort itself was ultimately swallowed by the nearby river, most of what is known about the fort’s history was extrapolated based on artifacts found in the site like arrowheads, pottery, and tools made from animal bones. Today, visitors can enjoy an extensive and interactive exhibit detailing the area’s history, as well as its current activities and conditions.
This 96mile trail connects the North and South Units of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, allowing hikers and horseback riders to get an intimate look at this beautiful and desolate area.
