The Great Outdoors

Though the region is primarily, an agricultural one, both North Dakota and Minnesota have been diligently working on creating parks for outdoor lovers to enjoy. Just across the North Dakota-Minnesota is Buffalo River State Park, established in the early 70s. Combined with the adjacent Bluestem Prairie Scientific and Natural Area, Buffalo River State Park is one of the largest prairies in Minnesota. The sole source of water, Buffalo River, is the lifeblood of many animals that reside on the prairie. The river, which snakes through the park, is lined with elm, ash, cottonwood, oak, and basswood trees. The banks are crowded with dense shrubberies, though people have established paths to the water at several points. The shallow river is terrific for cooling off one’s toes on a hot summer day. Fishermen, often donning sturdy waders, are often seen standing in the middle of the river as they cast their lures into the water. Common catches include white sucker, river redhorse, and goldeye.The prairie that is within the park, along with the Bluestem Prairie Scientific and Natural Area (SNA), is considered to be one of the largest and best of the state's prairie preserves. Over 13 miles of trails meander through the prairie, in which hikers, birdwatchers, and photographers can observe several prairie birds like chickens, upland sandpipers, bobolinks and even on occasion, marbled godwits. Foxes, badgers, white-tailed deer, and jackrabbits, too, are common sights. Moose occasionally travel this region in search of food, though their visits tend to be sporadic and unpredictable.Also very close by is Sheyenne National Grassland, which is a 70,000-acre slice of prairie wilderness. In addition to supporting a variety of prairie birds and mammals, it also is one of the only habitats in which the western prairie fringed orchid can be found. This orchid is endangered, and if hikers find one, they should leave it undisturbed. There are around 50 miles of hiking trails, including the North Country Trail, which is a less known trail that can be compared with the Appalachian Trail. The trail starts in eastern New York and stretches around 4,600 miles to terminate in northern North Dakota. A portion of this trail passes through Sheyenne National Grassland.

Exploring the Area

Fargo has several attractions to entertain locals and out-of-town visitors year-round, including Bonanzaville, a historical museum complex, Red River Zoo, and a dirt track for racing cars. Don’t overlook the small towns dotting eastern North Dakota. Hop into a rental Airstream and explore their charms. Many towns operate small museums that spotlight their history and cultural impact. The Plummer House Traill Museum in Hillsboro, ND, is one of the few homes built in Victorian styles in North Dakota. Stepping inside is akin to walking into the past. The stately home is decorated in a period-appropriate style. One can imagine that it’ll be only a few moments before the Plummer family comes back home.Ask any local where the best place to get burgers, and they’ll point you to Dilworth, MN. Dilworth Hi-Ho Burgers is a greasy hole-in-wall diner that’s often described as “so ugly that it’s awesome.” In addition to deliciously greasy burgers, it’s also known for a house specialty: cheese balls.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
