BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- The state Game and Fish Department is continuing to impose camping restrictions this year on some wildlife management areas in western North Dakota and along Lake Sakakawea.
The restrictions the past couple of years are a response to the oil boom in the region and are aimed at ensuring the areas are available for hunters and anglers. Rules are posted at entry points.
Overnight camping is prohibited on the following WMAs: Antelope Creek, Lewis and Clark, Big Oxbow, Ochs Point, Neu's Point, Overlook, Sullivan and Tobacco Garden in McKenzie County; Van Hook in Mountrail County; and Hofflund and Trenton in Williams County.
Several other wildlife management areas are closed to camping on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but are open to camping Thursday through Monday
