Went summer of 2016. Not crowded like Yellowstone, Zion, etc. Spectacular drive around loop of South Unit. Great scenery and saw plenty of wildlife. Encountered less than 10 cars. I think cyclists/bikers would enjoy the solitude. We were in a RV. Basic facilities, had to use generator. Kids enjoyed riding their bikes around rv/camp sites. There is a small gas... More

We enjoyed the drive through the park and the short film and museum in the visitor center. It is a beautiful place to visit. Due to some time constraints we were only able to go to the South unit, but enjoyed it!

Most wildlife viewing happens in the wild either early in the morning or late in the day. First thing in the morning is always a crap-shoot on what we as humans think early is and what the wildlife think early is (think dawn or just before and you will be close). But, late in the day is easy - just... More

This was my second visit and I continue to love this national park. The Rangers were so helpful in telling us where we could find a big horned owl's nest with two chicks! We spent a long time watching her and the chicks at wind canyon. There's not as much wildlife here as in Yelloestone, but there's also not as... More

A bit of history (Teddy Roosevelt) , lots of nature and lots of bison and a few wild horses! Worth a visit and exploration!!!!! If you plan a visit, visiting both North and South units of the park will give you a great look at the variations in the Badlands. South unit of the park has loop road with various... More

If you want to see Bison up close, this is your stop. We went to the South Unit and did the 36 mile scenic loop drive. Right off the highway and took us about 2 hours (with stops) but if you don't plan on stopping it still takes about 1 and a half hours. Saw at least 20 Bison, 5... More

Theodore Roosevelt National Park offers views we did not expect. This is a wonderful park just off Interstate 94 in North Dakota. What beautiful scenery! A drive through the park reveals some interesting geography and some gorgeous photo ops. You are almost certain to see bison, and some will probably be close to the road.

everyone should add this park to their list as a must. The views of the mountains and animals are breath taking. The rangers are very nice and helpful.

This little known park is where TR turkey came of age and gained his appreciation for conservation. We turned into the south unit from 1-94, parked our RV and unhooked. Unless you are camping the ranger was very happy and supportive of us not taking our RV on the loop drive. We drove the loop drive and saw prairie dogs,... More
