Lake Sakakawea State Park

category : State Parks
Located on the south shore of Lake Sakakawea, adjacent to Garrison Dam, Lake Sakakawea State Park offers a wide range of water based recreational activities and facilities. The park has a full service marina, including boat rentals, convenience store, fishing guide services and boat and camper storage. Two large boat ramps serve the park for access to the best salmon fishing on the lake. The park hosts numerous fishing derbies throughout the summer.

The lake itself is one of the three largest man-made reservoirs in the nation. It has a surface area of about 368,000 acres and is 178 miles long, reaching to Williston ND. As part of the Missouri River system, the reservoir was created in the 1950s with the completion of Garrison Dam, one of six main-stem dams built and managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for flood control, hydroelectric power, navigation and irrigation.

Cabins - Two small sleeping cabins are available for rent from mid-May through the end of September. The cabins sleep 4-5 and are equipped with lights, heat, fan and deck. No cooking is allowed inside the cabins and toilet and shower facilities are located nearby in the main campground. Call the park for more details or to make a reservation.
