I would think you could find more remote towns in North Dakota. It all depends on which criteria a person uses. And there are certainly more remote towns in other states.
Supai, Arizona, comes to mind.

But the remotest place in the U.S. outside of Alaska is almost certainly in the American Outback, which is the vast empty country where SW Idaho, SE Oregon and northern NV meet.

That's a real bummer.

It's a small town of about 30 people at the "dead end" of TX state route FM-170, about 20+ miles from Ruidosa and over 40 from Presidio, which is a good 300+ from El Paso or San Antonio. On the one hand it has a paved route to it, but getting there takes a real effort. Then, there are ranch properties on beyond Candelaria, reachable by dirt 4wd roads.

This links to a great book by Dayton Duncan, who wrote about these very remote places in the west.
