The RRRC has supported tourism development throughout the region by providing assistance to a variety or initiatives and projects such as Rendezvous Region in Pembina and Cavalier Counties as well as the construction of a the new Stump Lake Park Cafe in Nelson County.

The Stump Lake Park serves 200 to 300 people per day through its camping faculties.  Stump Lake Park hosts three major events including the Polka Fest, Threshing Bee, and 4th of July which attract 3,000 to 4,000 daily visitors.  The Park has 20,000 visitors per year.

Much of the tourism in northeastern North Dakota is related to parks and recreation, hunting, fishing, skiing, birding, history, and scenic wonders.

The strategic planning activities undertaken in 2014 revealed a strong desire within the region to further develop tourism amenities on a regional basis.  The RRRC will be working to assist in these efforts.
