Take a Hike.

The Devils Lake Region is one of the best areas to take a hike. Sullys Hill offers wildlife, hiking trails and an overlook that has a breathless view of the hill and the lake. Graham’s Island State Park also offers walking trails with beautiful scenery. If you are looking for a walk in town, Roosevelt Park offers a great walking/bike path. Stop along the path for a game of frisbee golf.

Take a Walk Through History.

While downtown, don’t miss the opportunity to walk about and see 14 buildings listed with the National Register of Historic Places. Among them are a number of church buildings that stand in testament to the faith and heritage of pioneers. The beautiful Episcopal Church located on the corner of 6th St. and 5th Ave. NE, is made of locally gathered fieldstone, reminiscent of its English roots.
