Wheaton can be found where Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota meet, and is centrally located to experience the unique geography of the Red River Valley, Continental Divide, and long-melted glacial Lake Agassiz.
Close to Lake Traverse, Wheaton offers walleye fishing, goose, pheasant, duck, and deer hunting – and, more recently, turkey and coyote. Blogger Ivars Krafts has captured awesome pictures of the wildlife outside of Wheaton, featured on his blog.
Although many of Wheaton’s jobs are agricultural, the town hosts countless successful, entrepreneurial ventures. The Wheaton Economic Development Authority supports both large and small businesses, and is currently promoting the manufacturing industry through the availability of large, functional buildings to lease or purchase.
Wheaton is a popular destination for hunters, fishers, and nature-lovers. The following accommodations are available:
The Wheaton Inn offers a variety of rooms, including a jacuzzi suite. Reservation and contact information can be found at http://thewheatoninn.com/index.html.
Camping is available at the Traverse County Fairgrounds (in Wheaton), and at the Traverse County Park (on Lake Traverse). Both of these facilities are owned and maintained by Traverse County and more information is available here.
Homemade meals are the standard, with fast food as another possibility. If you can make it for an early breakfast, a “coffee table” conversation with local residents is a great way to get to know the community!
