Family Vacation

Stop in for breakfast at Devils Lake Doughnuts. Fresh made every morning. Take them to go if you’d like while you head out to White Horse Hill National Game Preserve.

Spend the morning walking the nature trails, check out a backpack to help view the wildlife. Walk the steps to the overlook for a great selfie picture. Stop by the visitor center to learn a little more about the game preserve and maybe find a souvenir in the gift shop. On your way out, take the auto tour but make sure to stop at the overlook for a great view of Devils Lake.

After White Horse Hill head on over to Fort Totten Historic Site and head back in time. Once done, head back in town to downtown Devils Lake. Take in our boutiques and try and find the Dr. Seuss mural for another selfie moment. If you want to continue it for day 2, rent a pontoon or fishing boat for the day, from Woodland Resort or better yet, hire a fishing guide for the full experience. Make sure to stop at Bobber’s for an afternoon refreshment. They have games for kids as well. Weekends will provide live entertainment.

Creel Bay Golf Course offers rentals for paddle boards and kayaks with a great patio view of the lake. Grahams Island State Park also offers a great hiking trail and swimming beach to cool off on those hot days.

Great dinner options for families include the Ranch Steakhouse or Proz Lakeside at the Cove for either dining on the patio or take to go on the pontoon.

Charras and Tequila is another great option for dinner or lunch.

If you plan on being in Devils Lake in July, you need to make sure to check out the Fort Totten Little Theatre. The production takes place in Roosevelt Park outdoors and is sure to entertain the whole family.
