Trip Ideas & Travel Information

Getting to Fort Ransom State Park is part of the fun, as it lies at the end of the Sheyenne River Valley National Scenic Byway south of Valley City - or at the beginning if you come from the south - near the town of Fort Ransom. The park is a tribute to the state's homesteading Heritage.

Icelandic State Park in northeast North Dakota offers visitors a wide array of recreational opportunities and glimpses of North Dakota's homesteading heritage and its natural beauty.

Geocaching popular in North Dakotas state parks

Long before there were scenic byways, there was the Missouri River. Lewis and Clark took it to the Rocky Mountains and back home. Today, you can travel along the water route and see an array of attractions along the way, including Garrison Dam.
