Devils Lake is the largest natural body of water in North Dakota. Covering more than 200,000 acres it has hundreds of miles of shoreline.

This very fertile prairie lake grows large numbers of Walleye, Northern Pike, White Bass, it has earned the reputation of being the “Perch Capital of the World” and has been ranked as one of the top five fishing lakes in the US. Perch weighing more than two pounds are caught quite frequently. In the fall hundreds of thousands of waterfowl migrate through the area and give both local and visiting hunters outstanding hunting opportunities. Devils Lake derives its name from the Native American name Miniwaukan (”Spirit Water”). Early explorers incorrectly translated the word to mean “Bad Spirit” and bolstered by the many legends of drowned warriors and lake monsters. The name evolved into Devils Lake.
