  • Travel West from Ft. McCoy Wisconsin

    I am traveling back to Olympia WA from Ft. McCoy WI in August and considering a route that takes me through Minneapolis, to Grand Forks ND, to Minot ND, heading northwest up into Canada. Asking if anyone has traveled across North Dakota on ND 2 and up into Canada northwest of Minot. I like to stay at military campgrounds, and there two in North Dakota. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    No experience with the FamCamps in the Dakotas, but there is one in Great Falls Mt. Most of the little towns along Hwy 2 in Mt have a city park or fairgrounds that allows overnight. Usually no hook-ups and free. Canada north of Minot is kinda flat. Maybe cut north around Shelby? Canadian Rockier are beautiful and the Provincial Parks are very nice. Expect some crowds this time of year. There are several Canadian Heritage sites in Alberta that were done when they had too many petro dollars to spend and they are worth a stop. Also a bit of dinosaur activity around Drumheller. There are basically two routes west thru Canada. West out of Calgary or a serpentine route just north of the border. Both are good trips.

      Thank you for the great insight, and suggestions. I think that is exactly what I will do. We really like Glacier and have heard good things about the Canadian Rockies.

        Give yourself plenty of time if you are going to be crossing at Chief Mountain. It is a training facility for Canadian Customs. We had to bring out our slides while they went through the rig for 2.5 hours once. They did, however, put everything back exactly as they found it and took our firewood - very polite folks up there. We were going to Waterton Townsite campground that day so no great inconvenience.

          Earlier this week we took 2 from Grand forks SD to whitefish MT.
          Road in SD was four lane divided highway and went to two lane with some construction at MT

          At browning we took 464 then 89 to the boarder and 89 all the way back.
          89 has road construction between Browning and St Mary ( not all of it but that is the section ) widening and rerouting some of it.
          Pic at the boarder looking to MT.
