BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota's Game and Fish Department this year will continue to impose camping restrictions on some wildlife management areas in the western part of the state and along Lake Sakakawea.

The restrictions are a response to the oil boom. They're aimed at ensuring the areas are available to hunters and anglers.

Overnight camping is prohibited on the following WMAs: Antelope Creek, Lewis and Clark, Big Oxbow, Ochs Point, Neu's Point, Overlook, Sullivan and Tobacco Garden in McKenzie County; Van Hook in Mountrail County; and Hofflund and Trenton in Williams County.

Several other wildlife management areas are closed to camping on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but are open to camping Thursday through Monday. The Lewis and Clark and Trenton WMAs also have special restrictions. More information can be found at http://www.gf.nd.gov .
