      North Dakota's homesteading heritage is preserved at Fort Ransom State Park.

      The park, nestled in the picturesque and heavily-wooded Sheyenne River Valley, officially opened in July 1979. This park is managed as a natural and scenic area, and is located on one of North Dakota's officially designated Scenic Byways and Backways, the Sheyenne River Valley National Scenic Byway.

      Fall at FRSP

      Canoeing is popular on the Sheyenne River during the summer, with canoe and kayak rentals available in the park. A short segment of the North Country National Scenic Trail winds through the park. Corrals and trails are provided for groups bringing in their own horses. Those bringing in livestock must use certified weed-free hay, which is available for sale at the park.

      A farmstead within the park provides the setting for annual Sodbuster Days celebrations, with demonstrations and exhibits of early homesteading life.

      Snowmobiling and cross-country skiing are the major winter activities.
