Theodore Roosevelt National Park

(4.7/5 based on 400+ reviews for 5 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, nature, scenic drive
Theodore Roosevelt National Park displays Great Plains wildlife such as bison, wild horses, elk, big horn sheep, and prairie dogs in a mixed landscape of expansive prairie and craggy badlands. The park's location in thinly populated western North Dakota gives it a real sense of isolation--depending on the time of year, visitors might spot more wildlife than humans. Drivers choose from a couple of scenic roads; hikers, bikers, and horseback riders take to trails; and paddlers put their canoes and kayaks on rivers. The scenery changes dramatically here with the season, with tall green grass characterizing late spring and early summer. The prairie turns shades of brown during late summer and fall, and snow typically blankets everything in winter.

Where to stay in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

If you're intent on sleeping in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, you can pitch a tent in the campground in the North Unit or the South Unit. The park offers a special horse campground in the South Unit for visitors on horseback, but you can stay here even without a horse. The small town of Medora near the entrance to the South Unit has a collection of motels and a couple of campgrounds. If you're looking for more options for dining and services, choose one of the hotels in the town of Dickinson east of the park. The region's thriving oil industry makes accommodations harder to come by in summer, so book ahead if you plan to visit at that time.
