We visited for two days. Theodore Roosevelt's cabin was very interesting and the ranger did a great job telling of his life in the area. The park was just incredible. We walked two hiking trails and drove the park several times to see the abundance of animals. We walked next to several small herds of wild horses. They were really... More

Spent two days here. Such a national treasure. Saw bison,feral horses,antelope. Lots of good hiking and overlook opportunities. Must drive the loop to do the park justice. Lots of construction on road so, slow driving and very,very dusty.

We spent part of two days here. We were hoping for a lot of animal sightings but the elk remained hidden. We did see prairie dogs--tons of them--wild horses and some bison. The road construction made driving dirty and bumpy. We did a few shorter trails but the highlight was probably the hike to the petrified forest area. There is... More

My husband and I have visited over 30 National Parks in the US to include those 10 most highly ranked. I would put this park in my top five. I believe early September is an ideal time to visit . . . The crowds are gone and it is still warm. Because of it's location in western North Dakota, it... More

Visiting the park after Labor Day means a relatively quiet visit, especially on a week day. We had to sit and wait for ten minutes, while a buffalo herd debated its options at crossing the road. Prairie dogs provide entertainment at the stops. Beautiful vistas. Because of heavy rains in August, September was unusually green.

We drove through the South Park of this beautiful park. It is a easy 1.5 hour drive offering beautiful scenery and some wildlife. We saw a lot of Prairie Dogs and Bison.

This was one of the National Parks on our "bucket list" and it more than met our expectations. Miles of stunning vistas lay before us as we rode the 36 miles winding loop road through the South Unit of the park marvelling at the spectacular views and the herds of bison and wild horses roaming freely. We hiked the Ridge... More

If you want to see some amazing wildlife, this is the place! WARNING: do not enter the park to do the driving tour without a FULL TANK of gas! I almost made this mistake the first time I visited, not realizing how many times we would stop to view/photograph the abundant wildlife this park contains while driving along the 36... More

We stopped at this location as a rest (pit) stop and also because of the viewing area it had for the Badlands. We loved the walkway that gave everyone a good view of the area. Information signs gave good historical information about the area. It was worth the stop

I came through here in the late afternoon and encountered a herd of bison coming up the highway toward me. I stopped my car...there were no other cars on the road, and waited until the herd walked around me, passing right next to the car on both sides...lots of mamas and babies as well as huge papas! It was pretty... More
