The 8 Best Places To Hide In North Dakota In The Event Of A Zombie Apocalypse
In the bizarre event that some sort of global zombie outbreak would occur, North Dakota would probably be pretty safe. It has a lot of space between each town and unless zombies are really good runners with an insane amount of stamina, it would take them a while to get from place to place and spread whatever they have. You can never be too cautious, though! This list is more for fun, and we’ll be looking at 8 places in North Dakota that would be perfect to fortify yourself in if something like The Walking Dead occurs.
Here’s hoping it never happens!
1. If you live in one of the major cities, get out and head to the country.
This is by far the most important part. A big city is always a disaster in zombie movies. So many people in a small space is just asking for some sort of outbreak to spread, so it's time to pack up the car and head out. Luckily for us North Dakotans, we live in a widely agricultural based state with lots of small towns and farms that would take ages for a zombie to reach unless they could drive. Isolated small towns would probably be unaffected.
2. If you live in Fargo or Bismarck and can't leave, then try Space Aliens.
Space Aliens is pretty perfect for such an event. First off, it has a giant hatch on the front that you could close (or at least break and put in the way of the door), and second, there are no other windows. Staying here would ensure you are completely closed in and you can also live off of their delicious french fries for a while. Perfect!
3. The Stanley R. Mickelson Safeguard Complex
What better place to stay safe than a safeguard complex? This massive concrete pyramid has hidden underground tunnels and systems that would be the best to hide out during a zombie apocalypse. This place was pretty much made for it. It also has the benefit of being pretty far out in the middle of nowhere near Nekoma, North Dakota. There is no better place than here.
4. Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Site
Residents of Cooperstown, North Dakota might have a head start at getting to the next best place to hide. Other than being surrounded by chain link fences and barbed wire, the site also has an underground bunker that no zombie would ever reach. This bunker even has a massively thick steel door to shut out anything and everything. You'd be safer than ever here.
5. Graham Island
North Dakota doesn't have much in the way of islands, but it does have Graham Island in Devils Lake. There is only one road connected to it and assuming zombies don't swim, you'd be able to fortify it pretty well. Plus, it has cabins you can stay in and plenty of resources. Bring a fishing rod and you can live here for quite a while without ever leaving.
6. One word: Forts. North Dakota has plenty, such as Fort Mandan:
There's no better place than a fort when you are taking on a defensive position. Places like Fort Mandan are perfect to keep out undead invaders.
7. Fort Abraham Lincoln
Fort Abraham Lincoln is another great fort to take up. This fort plus other historical sites near it, like the On-A-Slant village and the Custer House, can be defended well.
8. Fort Totten
Another fort option in North Dakota is Fort Totten. This one would be perfect for a larger community of non-zombies to band together because of the amount of buildings and space it has while still being defendable.

In all seriousness, being prepared for disaster is important, but it’s more important to prepare for things like floods or other natural disasters. You can find information about preparing for emergencies in North Dakota at the
ND Department of Emergency Services. It has a list of different natural disasters and how to prepare for them.
