As we head towards December, we’ve been pretty fortunate with the weather but when true Winter strikes, North Dakotans know how to enjoy it.

Whether it’s cross country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling or other activities, there’s plenty to be done when snow is on the ground.

So where is the best place in North Dakota to enjoy winter activities? U.S. News and World Report recently answered that question by naming the top Winter getaways in each state.

In North Dakota, they chose Lake Metigoshe State Park. According to the State Parks website, “winter provides opportunities for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, skating, sledding and ice fishing. The snowmobile trails within the park connect with over 250 miles of groomed trails throughout the Turtle Mountains.”

So you can pretty much do it all at Lake Metigoshe State Park and therefore it makes sense that it was named the best winter getaway spot in the state.

If you are looking for winter adventures in neighboring states, Glacier National Park received the honors in Montana, Minneapolis in Minnesota, and Badlands National Park in South Dakota.

Of course one of the best places to go to get information about winter gear and winter activities is at the North Dakota Sportsman’s Expo taking place at the Bismarck Event Center on Dec. 8th and 9th.
