Des Lacs National Wildlife Refuge
Des Lacs National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is a 28-mile long river valley with three natural lakes. The northern boundary of the Refuge is Saskatchewan, Canada. The Refuge was established in the 1930s "dust bowl era" and original Refuge facilities were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) to benefit waterfowl production and protection.
The Des Lacs NWR headquarters is located 1 mile west of Kenmare, North Dakota, off Ward County Road 1. A large entrance sign is situated at the junction of County Roads 1 and 1A. Kenmare is located 50 miles northwest of Minot on U.S. Highway 52.www.hobogrill.org
