Recreation in the Area


The outdoors is yours at scenic Parshall. For endless recreation, hunting, fishing and adventure, there's no better place to be. Come see for yourself!


Just minutes away from exceptional walleye and northern pike fishing. LAKE SAKAKAWEA HAS IT ALL!  Lake Sakakawea is one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the world.  Created by the Garrison Dam in the 1950's, the lake expands hundreds of miles and offers every recreational opportunity from recreational boating and world renowned fishing to adventurous sailing and scuba diving.  The lake offers plenty of room for the entire family to enjoy water skiing and sunbathing during the warm summer months with miles and miles of pristine natural sand beaches.  Fishing is a favorite activity year round!  Many anglers prefer the challenges of ice fishing! 


During fall and winter months, the Corps of Engineers lakeshore area provides excellent upland game and deer hunting. Out of state hunting and fishing licenses are available through local vendors or the North Dakota Game & Fish Department.  Guide service is available for both hunting and fishing activities.  Contact us for more information.


Another area attraction are powwows hosted by the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara tribes.  The grace and beauty of all forms of Native American Dance and Drums is spectacular.  The Nux-baa-gaa powwow grounds are located 5 minutes south of Parshall with the event scheduled for the third weekend in June each year.  The Little Shell Arbor, near New Town, located 20 minutes west of Parshall, also hosts a powwow for all Tribal Nations the third weekend in August each year.  Schedule a trip to take in a powwow and experience the friendly hospitality of our Three Affiliated Tribes.  Contact us for more information regarding powwow events.
