Go & Explore The Western Edge

Visiting North Dakota
From nature and recreation to history and family fun, Dickinson and the surrounding areas have it covered!  
Explore Nature

If you are interested in hiking, trailing and sight seeing, the Badlands and Theodore Roosevelt National Park are a must. The Theodore Roosevelt National Park located near Medora, ND is open year-round with campgrounds available and dining nearby. The hiking trails will take you to another world where you can expect to see wildlife and natures beautiful garden. 

For a more relaxed approach, wildlife viewing is available from the comfort of your own vehicle. A wide variety of animals such as bison, mule and white-tailed deer, elk, longhorns, horses, prairie dogs, birds and snakes are exciting to see while in their natural habitat.  

Golf & More

The Heart River Golf Course located near Patterson Lake in Dickinson is a great way to get out with family or friends and enjoy the outdoors! With an 18-hole, 72 par layout and Lake Patterson as the view, you cannot go wrong! If golfing isn’t for you, you can still stop in for a delicious meal and a refreshing drink! 

Walk Through History with Dinosaurs

With triceratops skulls on display, fossils of bones and teeth, eggs and baby dinosaurs and hands-on science exhibits, Dickinson’s Badlands Dinosaur Museum is a place to explore and imagine. Exhibits offer background and research as well as the exploration process. Open year-round, Badlands Dinosaur Museum is open to seniors, adults and children. Want to take the whole family? Great news, groups of 10 or more may receive a discounted rate. 

Rest & Relaxation

Lake Sakakawea covering a wide area of north western and central North Dakota is a great day or weekend trip for fun with the whole family. With miles of shoreline there is opportunity to sun bathe, rock hunt, swim in the lake, shore fish and just explore! 

Take your boat, kayak or canoe and you’re able to explore the waves and find a fishing hole just right for you. Walleye, northern pike, catfish, bass and perch are just a few of the many fish you can expect to hook onto. At the end of the evening, pitch a tent, start a bonfire and cook up the catch of the day while you enjoy some rest and relaxation in nature.

Obviously, there are still social distancing measures which need to be practiced. Before taking off on your adventures around Dickinson, please visit the Dickinson Convention & Visitors Bureau for current travel updates. https://www.visitdickinson.com/.
