General Information

Community

Devils Lake is a city with pride in the past

and faith in the future. Besides Lake Region

State College, the region boasts an excellent

public school system, the North Dakota

School for the Deaf, Four Winds Community

School and Cankdeska Cikana Community

College at Fort Totten.

Devils Lake is rich in historic and scenic

sights such as Sully’s Hill Wildlife Refuge,

Fort Totten State Historic Site and Grahams

Island State Park.

Devils Lake is also rich in the fine quality of

its people who work hard to provide well-

rounded cultural, religious, educational and

four-season recreational opportunities.

Devils Lake derives its name from the Native

American name Miniwaukan. Early explorers

incorrectly translated the word to mean

“Bad Spirit”. Bolstered by the many legends

of drowned warriors and lake monsters,

the name evolved into Devils Lake. Devils

Lake is the largest natural body of water in

North Dakota covering more than 100,000

acres and containing hundreds of miles of

shoreline. This very fertile prairie lake grows

large numbers of walleye, northern pike,

white bass and it has earned the reputation

of being the “Perch Capital of the World”. In

the fall, hundreds of thousands of waterfowl

migrate through the area and give both local

and visiting hunters outstanding hunting

opportunities.

There is always plenty to see and do in

Devils Lake and the entire Lake Region---the

opportunities in Devils Lake are “As Endless

As Your Imagination”.
