Description - North Dakota lies on the central border between the United States and Canada. The Missouri River flows through the western regions of the state exiting into South Dakota. This area contains the largest parcels of public lands in North Dakota: Cedar River National Grasslands and Little Missouri National Grasslands. Several national wildlife refuges protect important waterfowl habitat on more than 100,000 acres in western North Dakota. Navigable rivers in the region include the Missouri River and its tributaries, the Little Missouri, Cannonball and Knife Heart.

Attractions - The three "must see" state parks in North Dakota are Fort Abraham Lincoln, Lake Sakakawea and Icelandic.
