Huge area of nothingness (unless you're into grass!). Nice to see such big open areas, without a lot of development. But also interesting to see all the oil and gas drilling all around, surrounding the national grassland.

Came here looking for a hike but it's just a path through some grass. It was cool enough to see the "Little Mo" but not really worth the walk, though it takes little effort.

We drove through the grassland, it is a very beautiful site, but keep a half of tank of gas always, we went for an hour at a time without seeing another vehicle, towns of less than 100.

We drove through this on the far south end up to Medora. It is all gravel, but is well worth the trip...The Badlands are mixed in with this, and the colors were beautiful. There are lots of places to take trail rides on that south...More

We drove most of the roads in the grasslands. It took us two days. We enjoyed every bit of it. For the vast majority of times we were totally alone. The best part is just north of the National Park, going through the park and...More

This broad expanse of flat to rolling land is in great contrast to the mountains of the park and equally important to the natural order, very soothing.

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.
