Located on the Van Hook Arm of North Dakota's Lake Sakakawea, Van Hook Resort is your destination for summer fun! Van Hook offers free boater access to the lake and the day use facilities are open to the public. Amazing fishing draws guests from around the state as Van Hook is well known as the “walleye nursery of Sakakawea”. As soon as the ice melts in the spring anglers flock to this destination to take part in some of the best fishing that Lake Sakakawea has to offer.
No boat? No problem. Acres of shoreline make “The Hook” and ideal place for shore fishing. Fishermen can bring in walleye, catfish, small mouth bass and northern pike without setting foot in a boat. However, if boater access is what you are looking for, you will find three well maintained boat ramps with plenty of parking.
The recreation area is perfect for weekend getaways with family and friends. The park is full of amenities to make your stay enjoyable including swimming beaches, basketball & volleyball courts, horse shoe pits, a picnic pavilion, a huge playground, fish cleaning stations, ADA boat loading ramp, courtesy docks, well stocked bait and tackle shop, gas station and convenience store.
Van Hook is located seven miles east of New Town, two miles south of the junction of Hwy. 23 and Hwy. 8. We are always happy to hook you up!
