Where deer and the buffalos play.

This is one of my favorite places on the face of the earth. The buffalo roam with out a worry. A breathtaking place.

I wasn't planning to stop here, it was kind of a last-minute decision. I'm so glad I did! I drove around the scenic loop, and stopped at almost every parking area to look around. It was a hot, sunny day, and I'm glad I brought extra water and a hat! I got VERY close to some buffalo, and also got... More

Unless you're into visiting all the national parks or states you may want to avoid this one. Its a long drive from everywhere and not much to do once you get there. We did see bison and cute prairie dogs, and a prong horn. The south end has a nice visitor center and is in a little town. There is... More

I have been here over and over again, and it is and will remain one of my favorites :) Always friendly park staff, a beautiful scenic/wildlife loop and a great interpretive center that you can visit as well, which has very nice bathrooms and is nicely air conditioned.

This was a nice break to stretch our legs while crossing North Dakota on our way to Billings to Yellowstone National Park. Very scenic, got to see a Buffalo herd and wild horses. Would definitely recommend stopping if you're passing through that area!

We went in twice in one day, once in the afternoon then evening. We were lucky enough to see the wild horses while hiking. In the evening the buffalo were causing traffic jams to the delight of my family. Got some great pictures of my son and a bull eyeballing each other through the window.

We stumbled across this little-known national park when crossing North Dakota on I-94. Decided to go in Medora gate and take the 40 mile loop and we were not disappointed. The park is very interesting from a geological standpoint---very western with buffalo. Looks as if it would be great for biking or horseback riding and best of all there are... More

Beautiful scenery. We saw bison and hundreds of prairie dogs could be watched from parking areas along the highway. Reading about Theodore Roosevelt's time in the area and being in favor of saving the area by designating it a National Park. We saw four or five antelope.

The place is amazing, especially if you do not drive through at 45 miles per hour. Wind Canyon is a place to see herds of bison, elk at the river bend. A great place to stop and smell the roses.
