Situated on North Dakotaís largest body of water, Devilís Lake State Park actually has three state parks within it. Labeled as the "Enchanted Waters" in the 1930ís by the Fremont Expedition, Devils Lake is among North Dakota's most picturesque regions.
The biggest of the three parks as well as the most developed is Grahams Island State Park. The other two are Shelvers Grove State Recreation Area and Black Tiger Bay.
The expansive lake is well known by fishermen for its wide variety of large fish.

The adjoining hills, densely populated with foliage are inhabited by small game.
There is a well maintained state snowmobile trail, The Lake Region Trail which is enjoyed by many in the snowy months.
The Devils Lake Area Chamber of Commerce offers information about the Perch Express, a special Amtrak package that transports ice fisherman to the area in Winter.
