The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You Discovered North Dakota’s Best Kept Secret
The Missouri River is one of North Dakota’s most important rivers. It creates Lake Sakakawea from the Garrison Dam, and it courses through and next to many towns throughout the south central and western regions of the state. There are few places left to see the true form of the Missouri in North Dakota, before any dams and without any developed land or towns next to it, but there is one park in the state that has kept the original and natural beauty of it preserved. It’s a bit off the beaten, path, but this park will take you on an adventure you won’t want to miss!
