Visited at dusk and saw lots of wildlife. Beautiful landscape and large park. Did not get to stay long, however the Cottonwood campground in the park looked great, it's a primitive site but right in the middle of the park. The campsites in Medora are really RV grounds with not much character but right next to town. Medora was a... More

This is a beautiful spot. Take the scenic drive in the morning or evening to see the most wildlife. Construction caused some delays while we were there but it was still a great drive. Recommend the petrified forest hike; you have to go out of the park and take a gravel road to get there but it is worth it... More

We spent a late afternoon and night in the Park and Medora. The park was stunning at every turn. We saw beautiful geological formations and some wildlife. There are many prairie dog towns throughout the parks and the prairie dogs are not shy. We also saw bison, and wild horses.. a whole herd. Many hawks and other birds too. We... More

We spent and afternoon and the next morning in the south park. The morning is goo to see wildlife and we did. The Park is vibrant with colors. We saw buffalo, mule deer, sheep, prairie dogs and horses. We also hiked some of the trails. I would go back.

The park has beautiful scenery but a limited amount of wildlife. The park loop drive is a great way to spend a couple of hours. We enjoyed the campground. The spaces are mostly shaded and well separated. Water and restrooms are available. Showers and RV dump are not available. A dump can be found in town for $5.

It is a park that is unknown to many. We went to the park with friends. It's considered the Badlands of North Dakota. The Petrified Forest is amazing. Just know you have to hike in for 45 minutes to get to it. OH, and if there is any chance of rain at all, don't do it! We got caught in... More

Only visited the South Unit. Good visitor centre, showing Theodore Roosevelt's profound influence on conservation in the USA. Good program of events. Interesting drive around the 36 mile scenic loop. Especially fun are the numerous prairie dog 'towns', which can't fail to entertain. There are a variety of walks for all abilities. We did see a few bison & some... More
