Thirteen-lined ground squirrels are native to the Nearctic region and found in central North America. Originally confined to the prairie, they have extended their range northward and eastward over the past two centuries as land has been cleared. Currently they can be found as far east as Ohio and as far west as Montana and Arizona. They are found as far north as central Alberta and Saskatchewan and are as far south as the Texas coast.
