The fishing is fantastic in Devils Lake. Be prepared to provide your social for a fishing license though. Also go visit Sully's Hill while you are in the area.

Nice clean town, interesting with large lake and nearby Fort Totten. We toured the old fort and enjoyed a scenic drive around the lake on our way west on Highway 2.

Came back to town to fish again. Love the area and people but the fishing was the worst. I'm afraid the Perch population is gone though their life cycle on this lake or some sort of ill fate to the species has dwindled the numbers!...More

Ice fished Devils Lake for a week and had an excellent time! The fish cleaning house was a very nice bonus for fisherman. The people were very friendly / helpful, and the fishing was excellent. The only negative I would say is that the cities...More
