  • I had the best one-day experience in a national park. Saw tons of wildlife: bison, prairie dogs, wild horses, bird life...etc. Lots of good hiking add well, and a stunning landscape. We only made it to the southern unit, but would love to go back to the northern unit someday.
  • We only spent a day here, but it was great! Tons of wildlife (prairie dogs everywhere!!!), beautiful combination of plains and badlands, and interesting history. Unfortunately didn't make it up to the north part of the park, but the south part had plenty to fill a whole day.
  • Nice, but not a Yellowstone or Yosemite. Similar to badlands in SD. Nice views, small and uncrowded. The place that inspired Teddy Roosevelt in his early years.
  • We were only here a short tlme but loved it! We backpacked the petrified forest loop, and set up camp in the back country. The petrified forest was amazing. It felt like you were transported back in time. The panoramic views from the plateau were breathtaking. The wind on the trail is constant, and can cool things down quite a bit, so plan accordingly. The wind also dries you out, so bring plenty of water and maybe some glasses to shield your eyes.
  • Wonderful, rugged, natural. Took a very nice hike. Would be happy to go back. Oh, and there are wild horses!
