Myself and two kids, 12 and under, visited on a clear amazingly windy day - we drove the loop, stopped and watched prairie dogs talking to each other, stopped and admired the amazing landscape - we did not hike due to time constraints and the WIND! but all the trails appeared well-marked and easy to find. The visitor's center was... More

This is a beautiful park to visit, but it is hit or miss when it comes to wildlife sightings. The prairie dogs are always active and fun to watch, but you don't always see other animals. It got long and a little boring for the kids.

Please visit this park. I am assured by the Rangers that every time you visit you get a different experience. We saw tons of bison, prairie dogs and wold horses. My youngest completed the Jr Ranger program and received a badge.

The scenery here is spectacular....the badlands and rock formations are amazing. We went through late in the afternoon....around 3. Started at the visitor center with a 27 minute historical perspective of the Park development. Then we went through the parks main loop....scenery was amazing and we saw lots of wildlife. Prairie dogs, wild horses and Buffalo...no antelope or deer this... More

Understand why Teddy Roosevelt fell in love with this place. Spent two days visiting both the South and North Units of the park and loved every minute. Took driving tours in both parks coupled with many hikes out into the park (favorites Wind Canyon, Ridgeline and coal vein among others. Saw bison, wild horses, prairie dogs, mule deer, antelope, magpies... More

It is a very well maintained park with trails and views that are nice. Not as dramatic of views as other parks but if you are in the area definitely worth a visit. Really wish we would have had time to go see the petrified forest but it appears to be about a 45 min drive outside the park and... More

Our family spent a great day driving thru the South unit of the park. We spent some time at the visitor center learning about Theodore Roosevelt and the history of the park. We enjoyed seeing the bison herds, feral horses, and prairie dogs. The landscape is like nothing we have seen before. The scenic loop took about 2.5 hours with... More

Probably not beautiful in a typical way but we loved the unusual rock formations with their different colors and all of the grasslands for bison and wild horses. We did see both bison and horses during our 2 days here but they were in the distance. Rangers say that many times they are very close to the road as well.... More

This park is absolutely amazing and right on par with the Grand Canyon. Possibly even better because you really get to interact with the landscape. Make sure to visit both the North Unit and the South Unit. The landscape is slightly different in both parks. Also, the wildlife is a little different. In the South unit we viewed a few... More

We have been by this park many times in our travels but never have stopped. This year we made plans to spend a week here and were glad we did. You have to love hiking and visiting all around the park to stay here for a week. The park is beautiful and if you take your time you will see... More
