This is one of the most beautiful, breathtaking parks in America. We started out at the south entrance around 9 a.m. in mid-April and didn't see another car until we were a few miles short of the exit. Except for a few intermittent glimpses of I-94, we could've been on another planet. It's so cool to hit this rocky, rugged... More

We spent about 2.5-3 hours touring the south unit. We did a few of the smaller hikes (Ridgeline Trail, Coal Vein Trail & Skyline Vista) and took our time driving around. Saw tons of buffalo, prairie dogs, & feral horses. Also saw a few elk & pronghorn. We drove up to the north unit which is 52 miles away. We... More

North Dakota Badlands. Great opportunity to see wildlife such as buffalo, deer and sheep. Beautiful circle drive. Visited in winter, would love to return in summer for a chance to do some hiking.

We toured the park in our crew cab truck with our dog Bruno. He went crazy trying to look out all the windows at the same time as the herd surrounded our vehicle. The buffalo's had millions of flies and stunk to high heaven. We also saw wild horses running free. Plus a campground on the stream that ran thru... More

While this park is next to the wild buffalo reserve we did not see any at the park. There are some very unique geographical rock formations and beautiful views. We did however see a buffalo on a high ridge while traveling down the highway, yes it was wild and so majestic.

While planning a solo trip to visit my last 3 states in the country on a solo camping trip, I decided to pay a visit to TRNP. I stayed in the Wooly Wagons in Medora and explored the south part of the park from there. Should I pass through North Dakota in the future I would most definitely explore the... More

another stop on my February ND visit a few years back. at the end of winter it was stark and bleak and so amazingly beautiful. the herds of deer were ubiquitous throughout the park, I had to stop on the road to let a group of 8-9 pass. stunning

I didn't know what to expect prior to visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park because I honestly didn't know anything about it. It was a great surprise to experience how wonderful Theodore Roosevelt National Park is! I loved the beautiful landscape and really enjoyed watching and photographing the many Great American Bison, feral horses, and other wildlife we saw. I can... More
