Chahinkapa Zoo


In the northeast corner Wahpeton, North Dakota, a park lies along the banks of the Red River of the North. This natural setting is a veritable paradise for song birds, waterfowl and wildlife. The early Native American Settlers name the site ?Chahinkapa,? meaning end of the woods.? It was a favorite meeting place for the Indians who established summer camps for bison hunting. Two rivers (Bois de Sioux and Ottertail) joined her to form the Red River at the spot where the Minnesota timber land ended and the grassy plains of Dakota began.
