McLeod (also Sandoun) is an census-designated place in eastern Ransom County, North Dakota, United States. An unincorporated community, it was designated as part of the U.S. Census Bureau's Participant Statistical Areas Program on March 31, 2010.[2] It was not counted separately during the 2000 Census,[3] but is scheduled for inclusion in the 2010 Census.[4]

Ransom lies along North Dakota Highway 27 east of the city of Lisbon, the county seat of Ransom County.[2] Originally named Sandoun for the many sand dunes in the area, it was renamed McLeod for local realtor J. J. McLeod.[5] Although it is unincorporated, it has a post office, with the ZIP code of 58057.[6]
