Hiking, Exploring, Bird Watching, and Photography at the Deepwater Bay Bed & Breakfast

The Deepwater Bay Bed & Breakfast is on the edge of Lake Sakakawea, with miles of prairie and coulees providing ideal surroundings for exploration.  The lake level fluctuates according to the amount of mountain runoff received, and the center of the picture above is dry lake bottom which usually has water covering it.  We are located on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, and have teepee rings to explore in our pasture. Lewis and Clark's Corp of Discovery spent the winter of 1804 near here between the Mandan and Hidatsa Earth Lodge villages. The area surrounding the ranch is rich in the cultural pre-history and history of the Plains Indians.   Short walks will take you into areas that have not changed noticeably in the last 200 years. Shorebirds and prairie birds are plentiful, as are whitetail deer. Besides the abundant wildlife, the photography enthusiast will appreciate the native wildflowers, and our famous North Dakota sunsets. Miles of shoreline are available for beachcombing, and summer brings opportunities to take advantage of water sports. We have a paddleboat available, and we encourage you to bring your boat - fishing, waterskiing, and tubing are just steps away!
