Despite the bitter winter depicted in the movie Fargo, winter doesn’t last all year in North Dakota. Camping during the warmer months means taking in all the scenic beauty and natural wildlife that the state has to offer. Retrace the steps of the pioneer explorers Lewis and Clark and camp along the Missouri River on the western side of the state. On the opposite side is Devils Lake, North Dakota’s largest natural lake. Tent, RV, and cabin camping are all available in the several campgrounds that surround the lake. In addition to camping on private land, find cabins and yurts in most of the state parks in North Dakota; Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park even has two tipis you can rent! Theodore Roosevelt National Park, with its steep slopes and deep canyons of the Badlands, and Little Missouri River that twists through it, makes for the perfect place to camp under the stars.
