Search Lisbon North Dakota

The Sheyenne National Grassland, located in southeastern North Dakota, is an area of approximately 70,250 acres of public lands coupled with about 65,000 acres of privately owned lands in Ransom County and Richland County.

Recreational opportunities on the grassland include hunting, hiking, horseback riding, nature observation, photography, primitive camping and even some canoeing and fishing along the Sheyenne River. Approximately 25 miles of the North Country National Scenic Trail traverses the Grassland. This trail is designated for non-motorized use and is part of a 3200-mile, Congressionally-designated trail extending from Crown Point Historic Site on Lake Champlain in New York to Lake Sakakawea in North Dakota.

Also called the sandhills, the Sheyenne Grassland contains the largest population of the greater prairie chicken in North Dakota. One of the largest populations of the western prairie white-fringed orchid (a threatened species) known to exist in the country can be found here, as well.
