We visited the south unit multiple times throughout our weekend in Medora! We never saw the same thing twice and enjoyed every minute of it!

A great experience! The rock formations and canyon" look of this national Park which really breathtaking. We encountered prairie dogs in several locations and Buffalo roaming freely, even across the road.
