Burning Coal Vein

Location(s): 
Category(s):
Burning Coal Vein is a badlands landscape still in the making. Located 15 miles west and north of Amidon, the fire smoldering in the coal layer several feet underground was burning when viewed by the first white settlers in the area over a hundred years ago. Burning Coal Vein has since become part of the Little Missouri National Grasslands natural area with adjoining campground.

The underground fire is no longer active, but local landscape features and columnar Rocky Mountain juniper (cedar) bear witness to the effects of the continuous smoke of past years. West and north of Amidon. A great day trip from Dickinson, ND!
