When people think about Beulah, they often think “power.” Located in what’s known as the “Powerbelt” region of North Dakota, it’s home to several energy-related operations such as Dakota Gasification Company and the Great Plains Synfuels Plant, to name a few. The area was built on mining of lignite coal, but the area continues to grow and adapt to North Dakota’s constantly evolving energy industry.

While Beulah is considered a small city by most standards (the 16th largest in North Dakota), with a population of 3,356 according to the 2014 census, it doesn’t mean the city doesn’t offer its residents all the services they need to thrive, not just survive. With an outstanding school district, tons of indoor and outdoor activities available, and a central location, you’re sure to find yourself at home in this small town with a big personality.

Beulah is located just over an hour, or about 75 miles, from North Dakota’s state capitol. Lake Sakakawea is only 20 minutes away, and you’ll find Beulah Bay campground and park worth the short drive. Other lakeside recreation areas are also just beyond, such as Riverdale State Game Management Area, Hazen Bay Campground, Dakota Waters Resort, Lake Sakakawea State Park, Sakakawea Park Campground, and Cross Ranch State Park. Camping, hiking, boating, swimming, birdwatching, and other outdoor activities are close at hand when you live in Beulah.
