Schafer is an unincorporated area and the former county seat of McKenzie County, North Dakota, United States. It faded into obscurity after the county seat was moved west to Watford City, and is now a ghost town. The town would still exist, but due to a land dispute in between the Schafer family and the Great Northern Railway, the railroad never laid tracks, but grading was done to the Missouri river.
