Great little hikes!

We enjoyed our time at TRNP. Always enjoy the short movies at the visitors center. Lots of great short hikes to do around the scenic drive.

We went to this National Park in July, 2016. Very nice drive, lots of wildlife to view. This was Teddy Roosevelt's " Get away from it all" hideaway when he was president. He had a ranch (still there) there

Saw just about every animal known to the park. Worth the 36 mile drive. Didn't get out of the car. It was a Sunday in October and not much traffic.

Well worth the stop. We planned on a couple of hours to drive through the park but found so many things to stop and look at we actually stayed two and a half hours. We did get stopped by Bison snoozing in the road at one time. Got great pics and they eventually let us by. Very cool!

Had never heard of TRNP until I read something in AARP magazine. Been to both north and south units. More wildlife in southern unit. The two parts if the park are about an hour apart. Rangers and staff helpful in both units. We stayed in Watford City ( near north unit). Lots of oil workers and the landscape is littered... More

Wonderful area for hiking, driving, camping and enjoying the beauty of the North Dakota "Badlands." We also attended the Bluegrass and Ribs Festival which was taking place in Medora.

We did the loop road in both units, enjoying the northern unit more. The badlands are amazing, with buffalo "sharing" the road with you in the north unit. Although less popular and convenient to get to, the north unit is a must.

The raw beauty was astonishing! We saw a ton of animals... bison, coyote, prairie dogs deer foxes and wild horses. I highly recommend going down some of the trails to see inside the park. We also went in at dusk and the views are awesome and different. We didn't see any elk but I thing they are very allusive. The... More
