Camping. 

You can never go wrong camping in our neck of the woods. If you camp in a camper or prefer to rough it in a tent, there are several camp options you should check out. White Earth Bay, Lewis & Clark, Tobacco Gardens, and Trenton Lake are all great options.

Medora. 

Medora is just two hours away from Williston. This little town is small, but it packs a punch with things to do. Step back in time and ride the trails on horseback. Shop on their main street. Stuff yourself with the pitchfork fondue. Be sure to take in the Medora musical too.  Time is running out to enjoy the 2023 musical.
