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

Take your time exploring this area- The hiking trails are very well marked and kind to the less able. A map is supplied when you check in at the station; if you intend to be in the area for more than a day get the annual pass for $5 more and use it at the North Unit also. The park... More

As we fought the oil field traffic all the way across northern North Dakota, we finally got to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in the badlands of the northwest portion of the state. It was a refuge from all those oil rigs, mobile homes, and freight trucks. We spent two nights camping in the North Unit of the park, and I... More

This is a fun area to visit. I have spent many days/nights hanging out in this park. It is really neat to see all the wild animals roaming though the land. You will see a wide variety of animals, including; buffalo, prairie dogs, many birds, and even wild horses. I would recommend the park to others!

Anyone visiting the park should make sure to purchase a guide book to the wild horses that make the park their home. The group "North Dakota Badlands Horse" has been documenting these beautiful horses for decades and does have the "2015 Guide to the Wild Horse of Theodore Roosevelt National Park" available at the Western Edge Bookstore in Medora.

Wow! I had no idea that North Dakota had a national park. I was very impressed with the beauty, as far as the eye can see. I took a slow drive through the South Unit, which took over 3 hours. It was a very pleasant way to spend a morning. I would definitely visit this landmark again and next time,... More

Enjoyed an afternoon ride through the park. Most of the roads were closed, due to snow, but the opened part had plenty of scenery and wildlife. There was plenty of buffalo, elk, prairie dogs, wild horses, deer, pheasant and a coyote. I really enjoyed the visit. Entry into the park was free at this time, and the park rangers at... More
