We visited TR last year and camped at Juniper, in the Northern Unit. I would like to tell you the park is a horrible place and to stay away, and therefore keep it to myself, but I cant lie. We adore Northern Unit; it has...More

This was a more off grid place less visitors and traffic than South Dakota. Very similar to the Badlands and enjoyed it much more. Definitely worth the trip.

We saw all kinds of wildlife while driving through. You can only go so far before you have to turn around and go the other way due to a road issue. You still get to see almost all of the park. Saw Antelope, Deer, Bison...More

Make sure you take your time and plan on spending the good part of a day here. We had to stop for some wild horses crossing the road which was so interesting. Saw lots of wildlife - the horses, prairie dogs, coyote, and buffalo.

We visited both the North and South units. Although the North Unit is more rugged, I prefer the South unit. There were more animals in the South Unit. We also hiked a trail and rode horses at the South Unit. Although the day was hot,...More

This national park is so isolated that very few people visit the park annually. That makes it so pleasant, open and uncluttered. In fact, there are no concessions and only 1 bathroom in the entire park! We were able to see bison, wild long horn...More

Loved this park. We were on our way home from Glacier National Park and stopped here for an overnight. We visited the South Dakota Badlands two years ago so it was great to see how different the northern Badlands are. The rangers at the South...More

Recommend contacting the park service directly. There was no construction going on when we were there in June but that could have changed.
