Overview

Homme Lake and Dam is a quiet, peaceful campground in the middle of the prairie. At this beautiful 194-acre lake you can enjoy canoeing, water skiing, boating and fishing. The fish population includes large-mouth bass, walleye, crappie and pike. The Walsh County Park Board operates a park near the dam that provides facilities for boat launching, camping and picnicking. The park is open from April through November. For those who prefer solitude, the 200-acre of surrounding land, managed by the Corps of Engineers, is open to hiking, hunting, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. This surrounding land is open year round.

Homme Dam and Lake are located on the south branch of the Park River two miles west of the city of Park River, N.D., on Highway 17. Homme Dam was built primarily for flood control and water supply benefits. Construction began in 1948 and was completed in 1950.
