Everyone From North Dakota Should Take This Awesome Lake Vacation Before They Die
North Dakota has a wide range of ponds, lakes, and rivers that people love to visit every year. They range from places like the Prairie Pothole region of landscapes dotted with water, to the Little Missouri River that carved out the beauty of the badlands. Not to mention all of the favorite lakes that thousands of people will fish on year round, both on a warm summer day or in the middle of winter on the ice.
North Dakota’s biggest lake, and the third largest reservoir in the US, is Lake Sakakawea. It was created from the Missouri River by the Garrison Dam in the 1950s. Two state parks are located along its banks, allowing for tons of recreational fun.

Leah moved to North Dakota when she was 12 years old and has traveled from the Red River Valley to the badlands and many places in between. She loves small-town life and currently enjoys living on a small farm in the ND prairie. She's always had a passion for writing and has participated in novel writing challenges such as NaNoWriMo multiple times. Her favorite part about this job is recognizing small businesses that deserve a boost and seeing the positive affect her articles can have on their traffic, especially in rural areas that might have otherwise gone overlooked.
