    In 1805, explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, along with their Corps of Discovery, crossed this region of North Dakota’s Badlands as they paddled up the mighty Missouri River. Today, Lewis and Clark State Park commemorates their passage through the area with this 490-acre recreation area on the scenic shores of Lake Sakakawea. The park is located in the upper, northwest corner of the state, about 20 miles east of Williston, off of ND-1804, and is one North Dakota’s best destinations for camping, boating, birding and hiking. The campground at Lewis and Clark State Park offers more than 100 tent and RV campsites, most of which are equipped with full or partial hookups. Both back-in and pull-through drives are available, and can accommodate large RVs and trailers. There are also 8 primitive tent sites and 5 group sites. Campsites are partially wooded for some shade, and come equipped with picnic tables and fire rings. Campground amenities include water faucets, flush toilets, showers, playgrounds, a dog park, picnic areas, and Wifi service. A dump station is located between the campsite loops. Dogs must remain leashed unless in designated areas. Camping is available year-round; sites are $17–$30/night; reservations accepted. The recreation opportunities at Lewis and Clark State Park are abundant, both on land and water. More than 8 miles of hiking and biking trails explore the prairies and ravines in the park. These range from short, family-friendly interpretive paths to longer trails to scenic badlands viewpoints, and for unique bird and wildlife watching. For cooling off during the summer season, a sandy beach is available for sunbathing and swimming, and boat ramps are available for launching watercraft onto Lake Sakakawea. The park rents canoes, kayaks and SUPs for paddling fun. Also a popular fishing destination, anglers can cast for walleye and northern pike.

    Overview

    For groups visiting the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Juniper Campground Group Site is a great place to stay. Located four miles (6.4 km) from the entrance to the North Unit of the park, the Group Site is open from May through October.

    Recreation

    Hikers can access the Achenbach Trail and Little Mo Trail directly from the facility. The Achenbach Trail (17.7 miles/28.5 km), climbs from river bottomland up through the Achenbach Hills, drops to the river again, climbs to Oxbow Overlook along the way of a spur trail, and returns north of the river to the campground. Ask about the conditions of the river crossing before hiking. The Little Mo Trail (1.1 miles/1.8 km) is a self-guiding nature trail that begins at Juniper Campground and goes through river woodlands and badlands. Visit the Hiking and Trail Information page on the park website.

    Facilities

    Toilets, drinking water and picnic tables are provided at this facility. The site can accommodate tents, trailers and RVs. The group site can accommodate between seven and 60 people with a maximum of 20 passenger vehicles. There are no hookups; a dump station is available for campers. All wheeled vehicles and trailers must remain on roadways or pads.

    Natural Features

    The Little Missouri River is the central, unifying feature of this wild and broken land where, as a young man, Theodore Roosevelt ranched and hunted in the 1880s. The park is part of both the Northern Great Plains and the West, blending a rich natural beauty with diverse human history. The rugged topography, with its flora and fauna, also provides an opportunity to discover the badlands environment as Roosevelt once did. It is a place to experience a land and way of life that helped shape Theodore Roosevelt's attitudes and philosophy regarding conservation. Cottonwood trees surrounding the campsite turn golden in the fall. Although the campground is moderately forested, most of the campsites are in partial to full sun but visitors can cool off in the cold river when temperatures peak during summer.

    Nearby Attractions

    The town of Watford City has shopping, restaurants, amenities and a theater is located approximately 15 miles (24 km) to the north. The Little Missouri National Grassland is the largest National Grassland in the nation at 1.03 million acres (416,826 ha). It is located in western North Dakota and is managed by the Medora Ranger District in Dickinson, ND and the McKenzie Ranger District in Watford City, ND. The National Grassland provides additional recreation opportunities in the area.
