North Dakota offers great, grassy plains that stretch for miles, plus room left over for lakes, rivers and
reservoirs that are hot destinations in season offering lots of outdoor summer fun.
One of North Dakota's No. 1 destinations from June-August is the centrally located and beautifully scenic Lake Ashtabula, with three swimming spots along the lake and plenty to do for boating and fishing enthusiasts.
Sharing the spotlight for 'most popular' summer hotspot in North Dakota is Lewis and Clark State Park which not only provides excellent fishing but a sandy beach along the shores of Lake Sakakawea, under the open skies of northeastern North Dakota. Heading southeast, also check out Sandy Beach at Spiritwood Lake along with the two swimming beaches (Pelican Point and Lakeside Marina) at the sprawling Jamestown Reservoir boasting 45 miles of shoreline.
Have fun .... and don't forget the sunscreen!
Sandy beaches and summer family fun await at the Jamestown Reservoir in Jamestown, ND.
