Man Camp Housing

North Dakota’s Bakken Oil Shale Boom has been compared to the California Gold Rush of the 1800’s. Tens of thousands of workers are flooding the area looking for high paying jobs but the sudden influx has created a virtual housing vacuum, leaving many to live in poorly equipped campers with limited utilities.  The Bakken oil reserve has seen a 70 percent increase in worker population since 2010, forcing many workers to sleep in vehicles and having to use facilities at local gas stations, restaurants and gyms.

According to, local housing prices have also skyrocketed due to high demand with homes averaging $253,000. Hotels are also jumping on the population bonanza with some charging big city rates of $300 per night or more. The local Williston Economic Development office advises anyone planning to move to the area do their homework about living conditions before they set out.
