Devils Lake

Devils Lake is known as one of the best fisheries in this part of the country. The city namesake, meanwhile, is equally alluring for its small-town charm and friendly people, making a trip to Devils Lake exciting year-round. Fishing, birding and hunting adventures await. The largest natural body of water in North Dakota is home to large numbers of walleye, northern pike and white bass and is known as the "Perch Capital of the World." As we progress deeper into winter, ice conditions continue to improve. Ice fishing will soon be possible over most of the lake and after a day in the house or outside on a bucket, anglers will be looking for ways to pass the evening hours and warm up. If you are looking to hit it big, visit the Spirit Lake Casino and try your luck. Cross-country skiing, fat-tire biking and snowshoeing are popular activities at Grahams Island State Park and Sullys Hill National Game Preserve. Window shop and browse unique stores downtown before grabbing a bite at Kneadful Things of a hot beverage at the Liquid Bean. In the spring, take a break from the lake and play 18 holes at Creel Bay Golf Club.
