History of the City

Devils Lake is the largest natural body of water in North Dakota, making it a premier vacation and living destination for all four seasons of the year. Devils Lake offers some of the best fishing and hunting in North America!

Devils Lake covers more than 190,000 acres (296 square miles) and has hundreds of miles of shoreline. Our lake grows large numbers of walleye, northern pike, white bass and it has earned the reputation of being the "Perch Capital of the World." Perch weighing more than two pounds are caught quite frequently. In the fall of the year hundreds of thousands of waterfowl migrate to the area and give both local and visiting hunters outstanding hunting opportunities. Waterfowl includes geese (canadian, snow & blue), ducks (mallard, pintail, & teal) and sandhill crane. In the fall, we are also known for some of the best white-tail deer hunting around.

Devils Lake's population is approximately 7,100 with over 500 businesses that offer outstanding shopping, great service, and career opportunities. Our medical facilities, schools, and park system provide state of the art technology and professional, caring staff to enhance the quality of life for our residents. The City is dedicated to making a safe and secure environment for our citizens.

We invite you to visit our community on your next sportsman's trip and look forward to you making your stay a permanent one in the Lake Region.
