Williston

Experience the History, Live the Adventure! Whether it’s modern RV parks or backpacking under the stars, camping enthusiasts can have what they want in Williston. Just up 1804, along Lake Sakakawea is Lewis and Clark State Park. Entering the park you drive by the full service marina complete with rental slips and a small convenience store. Lake Sakakawea is known for great walleye and northern pike fishing with boat rentals available and friendly advice on where they’re biting. Once inside the park you’ll discover numerous full service RV pads, rental cabins for family camping and primitive tenting areas. Modern bathroom and shower facilities are available, and fees are very affordable. Bring your hiking boots and enjoy charted and un-charted trails along the lake. This area is also popular for birding enthusiasts. A quick chat with park rangers will help identify popular species that you may encounter. A short drive south of Williston is Theodore Roosevelt National Parks north unit. The beauty of the park will take your breath away with tall buttes and beautiful prairies along with the Little Missouri River Valley. Keep your camera handy, as the park is home to native deer, antelope, mountain sheep and probably the most majestic residents, the North American Bison. The Juniper campgrounds provide drive through pads and tent camping areas, but no modern hookups. If backpacking is your passion then head up the Buckhorn or Achenbach trails and pitch your tent under the wide-open North Dakota skies. There are other modern RV parks and camping areas around Williston that give you access to the Fort Union and Fort Buford historic sites, and the Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence area. So spend a few days camping and exploring in the Williston area. It is true family vacation fun.
