Crow Flies High State Recreation Area is a day-use state park in Mountrail County, North Dakota, west of the community of New Town. The site provides scenic views of Lake Sakakawea. Signs describe the location's role in local history, including its significance in the explorations of Lewis and Clark. The footprint of the drowned town of Sanish, now lost below the reservoir's waves, can be seen at times of low water.[2]
