My wife and I enjoyed the visitors center and scenic drive very much. We chose not to do any hiking, were there about 2 hours. The park service was very friendly and informative. We saw a lot of wild life - up close - buffalo, deer, prairie dogs and lots of birds. I think the season you visit can change... More

It is a great place to visit whether it is in the summer season or in the cooler months. There is less traffic at this time of year but you still see plenty of animals. Wild Horses, tons of deer and buffalo. The scenery and drive is still great even during this time. Love this place. Peaceful, quiet and beautiful.

This National Park has many interesting geographical formations. There is a wide variety of cliffs, valleys, ravines, etc. There is also a lot of wildlife here. I saw thousands of prairie dogs in a couple of locations within the park. I also saw a couple of different herds of wild horses and many buffalo. There are many of types of... More

Went here with a couple friends, there were lots of wildlife we saw including horses, bison, ground hogs, and various birds. There are plenty of hiking trails for a park in North Dakota.

In the month of October we visited Theodore Roosevelt National Park. For those that are only interested in seeing the wildlife i assure you that around the fall time is the best. The reason why is less people and tourist are out there during the colder months of North Dakota. So if you do not like the crowds or like... More

Last time I was here, 29 years ago. Not that I was expecting a lot of differences, it is just as special now as it was then. Very beautiful! Lots of buffalo roaming, even saw wild horses. Nice relaxing drive, looping around the park.

We made a quick trip through the park since it was a cool cloudy day. We saw Bison, wild horse bands, wild turkeys, a doe with 2 fawns, and a huge bull elk!! It was a wonderful sight!

This was our last national park during our trip out west. We saw Badlands (SD), Yellowstone & Grand Tetons, along with Glacier National Park. This park was similar to Badlands, though not as good in my opinion. There are plenty of bison and other animals, along with great scenery, but not as special as the others.

We visited in July along with many other people. Yet the park is so large that we did not feel crowded and the vistas were wide. The Badlands are really interesting and we saw the prairie dogs and a marmot. The herds of buffalo were amazing. One large male one came right up to the car and just stopped, as... More

We loved our visit to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. We started at the Painted Canyon's Visitor Center, right off the interstate. Here there is plenty of parking, bathroom, small gift shop, and a beautiful overlook. The gal working there wasn't very cheerful but maybe she was having a bad day. We then went to the South Unit's visitor center, which... More
