The bison were everywhere, it was fantastic and the views are breath taking. Take your time on the drive, it is worth it.

We didn't know what to expect,but we we so pleased and surprised. We had already been to SD to the badlands, so we thought it might be a rerun. No No!! We did the Painted Canyon first and the short 1 mile hike. Had a blast. Moved on to the South unit and loved the vistas. Greeted on the first... More

This was our first visit to the Medora area. It is beautiful. My college aged daughter and I decided do some hiking while our "boys" golfed at Bully Pulpit. The park entrance fee was $20.00 which was good for a week. The park rangers at the South Visit Visitor center were very helpful in helping us pick an adequate trail... More

We enjoy driving through the Park and looking at the sites. Very nice terrain and the landscape is gorgeous. There are many wild animals so please be careful. The buffalo are wild and you see some stupid people trying to walk up to them as they seem tame. They are not tame so don't take any chances. There are prairie... More

Theodore Roosevelt NP is a pretty awesome place to visit. Being a hiker this park offered numerous hiking opportunities, and I was able to do several. The Wind Canyon, Buck Hill, and Boicourt Overlook Trail trail are short easy hikes I did that I'd recommend to anyone. Ridgeline Trail is a bit harder but still short and I'd recommend for... More

I have never been to North Dakota so I flew into Bismarck and drove to Dickinson and stayed there for a few days. I spent two days in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The Southern Unit is in Medora that has little shops and places to eat. The Southern Unit had a lot of wildlfie (buffalo and prairie dogs), short... More

A magical place that is worth every bit to be preserved as a National Park. It is an oasis of wildness and rugged beauty, with dramatic rock formations and rich varieties of native plants and animals. Bisons roam free. So will your heart and soul soar free, if you would let the place work its magic and stop the world... More

Gorgeous park! Loved the drive through - every turn gave a new beautiful view of the landscape. Exciting to see bison, feral horses, and other animals. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the resource. However, the infrastructure needs tons of work. I stayed in the campground (lots of shade, trees, and nice spots). The bathrooms in the campground were downright... More

An very interesting place. It was great to learn about Theodore Roosevelt 's connection to North Dakota. During a drive through the park we saw several bison herds and three wild horses posing for us on a high ridge. A beautiful sight. Only complaint about the park was that we found the hiking trails a bit difficult to follow. Definitely... More
