Where are we going today?

Nestled in the scenic Turtle Mountains on the shores of Lake Metigoshe, Lake Metigoshe State Park was constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the 1930s and is one of the most popular year-round vacation spots in North Dakota. The Chippewa called the lake Metigoshe Washegum, or clear water lake surrounded by oaks. Today, the lake is noted for its northern pike, walleye and perch. The rolling hills, aspen forests and small lakes attract nature and photography lovers to the area to capture these sights on film. The Old Oak Trail, a National Recreation Trail, is found within the park boundaries. The park has both modern and primitive camping, as well as picnicking areas. There are group dormitories, kitchen and meeting facilities and year-round cabins available for rent. Winter provides opportunities for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, skating, sledding and ice fishing. The snowmobile trails within the park connect with over 250 miles of groomed trails throughout the Turtle Mountains.

    My family and I have stayed in the primitive and the modern campsites, both areas are very well taken care of and as for the facilitys such as restrooms and shower facilities, were very well maintained and cleanliness was top notch. The park offers maney degrees of hiking from short walks to all day hiking through the variouse lakes that suround the park, large park and playground areas for groups and children, including an amphitheater , we are hoping to take part in the cabins that are located in beautiful settings with ample privacy
