Chan SanSan Scenic Backway Information

The Chan SanSan Scenic Backway runs for 35 miles along the James River Valley in LaMoure County, from Stakayak is at Heinrich-Martin Dam near Adriante Highway 46 on the north to the LaMoure/Dickey County line on the south end. When travelers descend to the valley, they can see the panorama of a winding river surrounded by tall grass prairie and wildflowers.

This area is rich in Native American and early pioneer history. Look for earthen mounds between Grand Rapids and Adrian and visit sites such as the LaMoure County Courthouse (on the National Register of Historic Places), the RedWing paddlescenic backway boat, and beautiful St. Ansgar Lutheran Church south of LaMoure.

Visitors have multiple opportunities for recreation and wildlife viewing along the byway. Enjoy boating, kayaking, fishing and birding at the Heinrich-Martin Dam area near Adrian, Limesand-Seefeldt Dam Recreation Area north of Grand Rapids, the LaMoure Dam site, and at Lake LaMoure in the Cottonwood Creek Recreation Area.
