Like unique camping?

This weekend one member of the North Dakota Tourism staff is trying out a yurt at Cross Ranch State Park.  So you’re asking yourself – what’s a yurt?  This unique type of camping is a cross between tenting it and renting a cabin.  Two yurts are now available at Cross Ranch State Park.  Comfortably furnished, a yurt is a portable, canvas-covered, wood-lattice-framed structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia.  It’s more home-like than tent and have propane heaters.  They can accommodate four to six people and reserved by calling 1-800-807-4723.

The second question you might be asking is: Camping?  In the winter?  You betcha!  Cross Ranch State Park has 10 miles of groomed trails perfect for cross-country skiing, plus more backcountry and beautiful areas for snow shoeing.  The ND State Parks offer more than 50 miles of cross-country ski trails.  Check out trail conditions online.
