I found North Dakota and the grasslands fascinating. When I was planning my trip to North Dakota, I was told to be sure to check out the grasslands area by the people on the North Dakota forum. I did not know what a "fun thing": it would be until I was there. Its fascinating to see the various grasslands, and... More

The Forest service improves it every year and the additions are well placed and helpful. The red scorria roads are hard on tires though. All camping is primitive, although they are adding hand water pumps at some locations.

I guess that's the best way to put it. It's humbling and beautiful here. Watching Bison graze on the grasses or sleep the afternoon away. Take a walk down into one of the many small canyons to fully immerse yourself in the quite desolation such a place would have been long ago. You really get an appreciation for life in... More

The infinite views of the grasslands gives an understanding of why the Native Americans of the plains needed to protect their land. The farmers destroyed the native grass and caused the soil to erode. It is a real education to see the restoration of the grassland.

Aside from a few short trails, we actually didn't spend much time exploring the grasslands. But we did stay at the small campground just off the interstate in the grasslands. The campsites are small, but nice. The bathroom facilities were in great condition, better than most state parks. You are only a few hundred yards from the interstate, so the... More

Everytime we're in the area we get out our grasslands map and explore the back roads. From cottonwood-lined river bottoms to dissected badlands to immense expanses of shortgrass prairie--there's no landscape quite like this place.

We drove through one evening looking for buffalo and wild horses. While we saw deer, elk and a lot of prairie dogs, we did not see buffalo. Still, the beauty of this area was a real treat to see.
