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
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

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

Traveling west on I-94 you will come to the first view of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, The Painted Canyon. You will have a spectacular view from above of the North Dakota badlands from this site. In the visitor center the park rangers will inform...More
If I remember correctly, it was 16 miles. Part of the road was damaged and closed when we were there, so we drove as far as we could and then had to go back out the same way we came in... rather than just making a loop... More
If I remember correctly, it was 16 miles. Part of the road was damaged and closed when we were there, so we drove as far as we could and then had to go back out the same way we came in... rather than just making a loop. Check the National Park website for this location and look for Alerts near the top. It will tell you about road closures so you know before you go.
