We drove through here on our way to Montana from Bismarck. It's one of those places where you need to just put the electronics away and enjoy what your driving by. The nice open expanse of this land makes you proud to be an American.

We saw a great deal of the Little Missouri National Grassland during our visit to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the surrounding area. What I particularly like about the grasslands is the open space, which gives a person a sense of freedom. The region I live in has hilly, wooded terrain and a lot of buildings, and I don’t see...

I was coming from Fort Union via Sydney, MT and heading to Medora, ND. It was a nice drive the whole way. A local in Sydney, who travels the area frequently, told me not to take the first road which said to Medora (HWY 23) because it was bumpy the whole ride, instead go on down to HWY 16 and... More

We camped one night with our RV. No RV hookups are available, however if you're needing a place for the night this is wonderful. It is $6; water was available however there are vault toilets. The early morning was filed with bird-song and a walk into the grasslands is peaceful and serene. It's an enjoyable escape from the hustle of... More

We were passing through on our way to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and were very thrilled at the open plains. Coming from the East coast you don't see many beautiful undeveloped, flat land that goes on for miles like this. Not much of a stop off place but there were a few scenic pullouts off the interstate when we came... More

Nice drive or hike. A pleasant diversion for a few hours. When you have some free time around Medora it is an option to be considered.

I found North Dakota and the grasslands fascinating. When I was planning my trip to North Dakota, I was told to be sure to check out the grasslands area by the people on the North Dakota forum. I did not know what a "fun thing": it would be until I was there. Its fascinating to see the various grasslands, and... More

The Forest service improves it every year and the additions are well placed and helpful. The red scorria roads are hard on tires though. All camping is primitive, although they are adding hand water pumps at some locations.

I guess that's the best way to put it. It's humbling and beautiful here. Watching Bison graze on the grasses or sleep the afternoon away. Take a walk down into one of the many small canyons to fully immerse yourself in the quite desolation such a place would have been long ago. You really get an appreciation for life in... More
