Jamestown, ND Attractions
Frontier Village, Largest Buffalo in World

Jamestown ND was one of our stops on the way back to Southern So Dakota. We had heard that they have the World's Largest Buffalo there and also a white buffalo. We were in for a treat. On this page are all the pictures I took in Jamestown. I was also surprised to see that the James River flows around Jamestown, because the James River also flows through South Dakota near us in Olivet.

Downtown Jamestown ND

I liked Jamestown ND immediately. It seems to be growing leaps and bounds too. There was a lot of road construction going on, especially widening the roads toward Interstate 94. On this main street, there are quite a few businesses too, like a Big Kmart, and a Buffalo Mall, here's the Buffalo Mall sign, and parking area, I wish we could have gone inside.

Frontier Fort

We stayed in an RV campground while we were in Jamestown called Frontier Fort. It is a small campground, with a gift shop nearby with a baby buffalo. There is also a restaurant there called the Chuckwagon, that has a buffet, but we did not eat there, we opted to go into town and eat at the Pizza Ranch, but wound up eating at Grizzly's restaurant next to Walmart.

The next day we went to see the baby buffalo and went to Frontier Village to see the World's Largest Buffalo. There is also a buffalo museum there which we enjoyed browsing, and bought several things from the Buffalo Gift Shop.
