      The Pembina Gorge State Recreation Area has become a top destination for adventure seekers throughout North Dakota and the surrounding states. The Pembina Gorge State Recreation Area encompasses over 2,800 acres of public land in the Pembina River Gorge. With steep valley cliffs towering over small, isolated prairies and pocketed wetlands surrounded by the largest continuous, undisturbed forest in North Dakota, its stunning beauty is simply unmatched.

      With over 30 miles of trails, the Pembina Gorge provides visitors with an exceptional outdoor experience. The trails at the Pembina Gorge are open to horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking and off-highway vehicles (OHV). There are also opportunities for non-motorized recreation on groomed trails in the winter season. Kayak rentals and transportation are available by contacting the on-site staff.
