North Dakota is home to under 800,000 residents, making it the 4th least densely populated state in the country. It is located in a region called the Great Plains and it is known for hot summers and cold winters. Due to its relatively small population, there is only one North Dakota area code. Established in 1947, area code 701 covers the entire state including more populous cities such as Fargo, Bismarck, Grand Forks and Minot. It is one of the country’s initial 86 area codes and it covers 53 counties. Some other prominent areas it covers are the Geographic Center of North America, White Butte and Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The area code is estimated to be exhausted sometime around 2022.
