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

We loved our visit to this park. The loop to drive around is so enjoyable. It wasn't as crowded as other National Parks and had plenty of buffalo, wild horses and prairie dogs. We camped on the river and enjoyed our peaceful and quiet time in the campground.

What an incredibly beautiful National Park! The scenery is amazing. And I saw more wildlife here than in any other National Park. This is probably because this is a more "remote" and less-visited park. I hope it stays that way. It is wide-open and wonderful. Truly not to be missed. We began in the North Unit because we read there... More

This park is a must for National Park enthusiasts. The southern unit is beautiful with abundant wildlife and easy hikes. The northern unit is amazing with more moderate hikes and amazing vistas of the North Dakota Badlands. Buffalo are abundant and HUGE!
