This is our 2nd visit to the Park, bringing my mother with this time. Fun to see the park through her eyes, and she was the champion wildlife spotter- 12+bison, 5 mule deer, 2 pronghorns, and, a first for us, 4 feral horses .

We are fortunate in being able to travel off season. Almost as soon as we arrived, we did the wildlife loop. In 3 hours (lots of photo stops), I think we passed 5 other cars, total. But oh boy were the bison out! For whatever reason, all the bison we saw were males and they were HUGE. I didn't need... More

Our national parks always amaze me with the wonder and beauty and TR National Park didn't disappoint. With the beautiful colors of the rocks of the Badlands to the mighty, massive bison, and the wild horses, it is a fine treasure of landscape, nature, and wildlife. I just loved parking beside the prairie dog towns and watch their busy little... More

We stayed in the northern portion of the park. Great wildlife (including bison in campground). Lots of birds and some good trails. Did have to stop in trail for 15 min to wait for a bison to move. Nice quiet campground. We took a drive to the southern section and toured around. This was a great stop for a couple... More

Saw Buffalo, wild horses, wild turkeys, coyote, deer, prairie dogs too numerous to count! With it being the offseason, most businesses were not open.

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.
