North Dakota didn’t have any destinations on the list, but four Minnesota state parks were among the “Top 100 Family Fishing and Boating Spots” list from the Take Me Fishing organization.
To qualify for the list, Take Me Fishing said the places had to be within an hour’s drive of a major city or town, have a body of water known for having plenty of common fish species, be part of a park that offers family friendly amenities and offer plenty of places to cast a line such as fishing piers and boat ramps.
The four Minnesota destinations were Itasca State Park near Park Rapids, No. 48; William O’Brien State Park, Marine on St. Croix, No. 96; Fort Snelling State Park, West St. Paul, No. 98; and Father Hennepin State Park, Isle, No. 99.
Topping the list was Lake Berryessa, Pleasure Cove Resort and Marina, Napa Valley, Calif.
