Watford City GMC and Buick Dealership

Founded in 1913, Watford City was founded by a few businessmen in North Dakota in anticipation of the arrival of the first Great Northern Railroad train. It was to serve as an important stop and hub for the rail line, as well as serving as a home for the workers laying the foundation for the train through the area.

These days Watford City is home to many great citizens of North Dakota, and our neighbors to the west. We get a lot of our first time and recurring customers from Watford City, and are proud to serve the hard-working men and women of the area with quality new and used GMC and Buick cars, trucks, and SUVs. We also have one of the best auto service centers for maintenance and repairs in the area, and frequently service both personal vehicles for people from Watford City and beyond, but also work and business vehicles for small and large business owners.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park
Teddy first came to the Dakota Territories in 1883, when he was famously non-outdoorsy and on this side of scrawny. Making the trip the wilds of the Dakotas was a major milestone in his journey to become the nation’s foremost Rough Rider and outdoorsman.

This park is bursting with wildlife, arresting views, and much more. From camping, to hiking, to spending some time with the rangers learning about the park and the wildlife within, the Theodore Roosevelt
Little Missouri National Grasslands.

Staying with the outdoor theme, the National Grasslands consists of over 1 million acres of natural, preserved grasslands. It also offers the only nationwide opportunity to view bighorn sheep in their natural environment, alongside wide elk, antelopes, eagles, and falcons.
