20 miles west of Grand Forks on Highway 2, Arvilla, ND
Constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the park is located in a beautiful, wooded valley along the meandering Turtle River.

The park features year-round recreational activities including camping, picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing and sledding. Angler can also practice their fly fishing techniques in the trout-stocked river.

Popular for family reunions is the spacious Woodland Lodge, with its kitchen and dining hall. Sleeping cabins, equipped with bathrooms and bunk beds (no cooking inside), can also be rented by groups or individuals during the summer.

The park features ten miles of trails carved through its forested hills and along the river. Specific trails have been established for nature walks and hiking, while mountain bikers will find challenging single tract trails. In the winter outdoor enthusiasts flock to the park for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and sledding.

Established in 1934, Turtle River State Park was one of a number of new parks built in North Dakota under President Franklin Delano Roosevtlt's "New Deal" programs.
