The abundance of rivers and lakes in North Dakota makes it a paradise for water recreation. Sail the length of Lake Sakakawea or navigate Devils Lake's ever-increasing surface area by motorboat or personal watercraft. And nothing beats a lazy afternoon with the pontoon beached on a Missouri River sandbar.
The North Dakota Game & Fish Department has great information on fishing and boating in the state, along with all the details on fishing regulations and licensing. For information on boating activities on Lake Sakakawea, go to the Sakakawea Country website. A number of resorts offer rentals.
These major boating area sprovide fun on the water, and there are many more places to put the boat in throughout the state.
