The park is a nice drive with good roads. You will see lots of prairie dog towns with the noisy dogs barking as you go by. There are buffalo herds and single male buffalo all around the park. There are beautiful wild horses. Be sure to get out at Wind Canyon and take the trail to the top to see... More

My wife and I were in the area on business (again) with time to kill one afternoon and decided to see what this park was all about. What a treat! A beautiful slice of badlands wilderness in the heart of the energy boom. The landscape is beautiful and we were fortunate to see a herd of bison by the river.... More

This is an amazing place to see. The 36 mile driving loop takes you to spectacular views and lots of animals to see if you come at the right times. The best time to view the animals is early morning or late in the day towards dusk. We saw bison, coyote, wild horses, prairie dogs and more. There are hiking... More

We stopped at the Painted Canyon and South Unit areas of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park on our way to Glacier National Park. Painted Canyon is right off of I90 and the South Unit is in Medora, ND. The loop in the south unit is an easy drive and a great way to enjoy this beautiful but often overlooked National... More

I don't know what I expected from this park. I knew nothing about ND - but seemed to have some idea in my head. This is a very pretty park just full of wildlife. Did you know that prairie dogs chat to each other? We also came across several groups of wild horses - some pregnant, some nursing. A lovely... More

The badlands are hot---the rock formations hold the heat and Medora is like an oven when it is hot! The badlands are beautiful. Glad we stopped!!

Great scenery and wildlife. The scenic loop can be done in two or three hours. All paved and well worth it. Bring your camera and watch for horses on the road.

What a great way to explore the ND badlands then a drive through the park. Get to see wild life and enjoy a nice hike.

Awesome scenery amongst geological formations formed over the eons. See majestic Bison, Elk, Coyote, Pronghorn Antelope, Prairie Dogs, Mule Deer and a wide variety of birds. Circular pattern drive, so it is impossible to get lost. Unfortunately, we did not have the time to tour the north side, only the south - but it was 36 miles of beautiful views.... More
