Erie is a small near-ghost town in Cass County, about 45 minutes northwest of Fargo. We visited Erie during a trip to nearby Brewer Lake, also known as Erie Dam State Recreation area due to the small earthen dam which created Brewer Lake. It’s a very nice, out-of-the-way campground that gets little traffic if you’re looking for a nice little spot to relax.
This is the now-vacant Erie State Bank building.
This is the earthen dam at Brewer Lake, about three minutes drive from Erie.
