We visited the south unit. Paid in the visitors center. We seen lots of various wildlife; we seen buffalo a plenty, turkey, a porcupine in a tree, antelope and deer. The drive was nice. We tried to hike the first spot we came too......but at 19* with high winds....we ran back to our car. We drove around the loop and back around. The rock formations are beautiful.

If you are looking for buffalo and viral horses the southern section is your place. When we went is Sept crowds were light and weather was great.

We arrived in Medora in mid-August, on a mission to see the Painted Canyons National Park. We first visited the scenic overlook a few miles east because it doesn't take long to accomplish, and we wanted to spend quite a bit of time on the scenic loop here. The admission line was pretty long at the visitor center, from the counter back to the entrance door. Fees are $30 per private vehicle, and one pass is valid for seven days. Motorcycles are $25. Hubby and I both have lifetime national park passes, so we didn't pay to enter. We drove most of the scenic loop, except for one section which was closed. We were fascinated to locate a lone buffalo resting high on a hillside. He'd shed half his coat in the heat. Prairie dogs scurried everywhere we looked. Learning about the various types of park wildlife was interesting. We decided not to hike because it was so hot, and there isn't much shade in the canyons. But the drive was beautiful.

Due to the C19 pandemic no one was at the entrance shack to pay our way in but the gates were open. My wife kept bugging about wanting to see wild buffalo before leaving the state, unfortunately we didn't see any roaming around until we came here. We drove through the park and stopped at one of the view points and then came a big herd of buffalo. Was she happy to see this herd - Oh yes she was and so was my daughter. It was an amazing experience to see them up so close and outside of our car too. This is an excellent town to stay in for at least one night.

We visited the South Unit-Medora, ND. Awesome drive through park with plenty of pull offs for great views and short hikes. Due to inclement weather, we could only drive 24 of the 36 mile Scenic Loop Drive due to road closures. Would highly recommend the hike to Boicourt Overlook. Great short hike through prairie dog town to see old East entrance.
