I am not a cycler but meet many cyclists traveling through my work area in central ND. I would like to suggest an alternate route through the Devils Lake area. If you are traveling from the West do not turn East on Highway 57 off Highway 281 when you get SE of Minnewaukan. Instead head South 9 miles on US 281 to Sheyenne and then head East on Eddy County highway 1. There is a nice park you can camp in on the East edge of Sheyenne, ND. It is called Warsing Dam. You can jump in the lake at the boat ramp to freshen up some. From there you can head East 20 miles and pickup ND state Highway 20. The city of McVille which is about 7 miles East of Pekin also has a nice small campground on the East edge of town. There are flush toilets and a swimming beach. From there you can head East to Highway 32 and then South to Highway 200. This will save time. There isn't much camping available through the Indian Reservation and it is much longer.
