“Nice place to fish.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

We found our way down the west side of the lake to Pete's Resort. For a whole buck apiece, my wife and I fished from the fishing dock and caught several smallish (1 lb.) fish. It was a nice setting, the dock had a bench to sit down and a very scenic view. People were swimming a ways down the shore and everyone seemed to really enjoy this nice little place. We'll be back.

“Good fishing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Good camping and fishing, but beware of the bullheads - and big ones! Plus, the lake turns over and starts to stink. BUT, it's a fun lake and plenty of real estate to have some fun and not feel crowded.

“Maybe the best fishing in North Dakota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

I grew up a few miles from Lake Ashtabula in the 50's. Swam, fished, boated and drove my car on the ice in the winter. Helped build the dance and roller skating hall at Siblys Trail, a new town on the lake. It is the main recreation area for that part of ND. Last visited the area in 2008, not 2010 and will go again in 2012. Its worth the stop if you are passing through Valley City.
