Escape To Lake Sakakawea For A Beautiful North Dakota Nature Scene

Nestled in central North Dakota is one of the largest reservoirs in the United States; it’s called Lake Sakakawea – after the Lemhi Shoshone woman of the same name – and it’s a stunningly beautiful escape that, depending on where you’re located, may not even be terribly far from home. It’s home to its very own state park (the appropriately-named Lake Sakakawea State Park) and it’s truly the perfect escape from real life for the person who loves natural beauty. This beautiful lake in North Dakota might be man-made, but over the decades it’s become a stunning testament to the beauty of wild North Dakota.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
