Great place for family. Views are amazing. The drive can be made in one day and well worth the trip to see it.

Was a day trip on our visit to Bismarck. Not too many people in February (6) at visitors center. Very scenic drive in park with snow covering, no traffic so you can drive at your own pace. Animals were not as abundant as in summer.

We spent over 2 hours driving through the park. We saw many animals. We stopped often and just watched the prairie dogs play and talk, there were hundreds of them. Great scenery.

The scenery was so beautiful. And the animals were out everywhere. We went around dusk. We saw a ton of prairie dogs dogs and a fox hunting them. We saw deer and buffalo. And it was such a short drive. This is easily done in a day or less. It was great catching the sunset here.

Theodore Roosevelt Park was incredible. The mountains in all directions appeared endless. The vast unsettled wilderness was amazing. The expansive views continued to impress us. We spotted at least 30 deer in the park, countless prairie dogs scurrying along the ground, an eagle, and a few bison. We visited on Thanksgiving day so the park was nearly empty. We only... More

Love the great views and the animals! You will see more animals within an hour in TRNP compared to a full day at Yellowstone. The farmer in me cannot overlook the noxious weed in the park.

North Dakota was our last stop for our big road trip this summer, and Theodore Roosevelt National Park was our last stop after Mount Rushmore. We got there mid afternoon and the Painted Canyons were beautiful. Every minute, the colors would change, turning new shades of orange and red. The site was not very crowded and there were trails that... More

One of Teddy Roosevelt's friends told him that the area looked like "hell after the fires went out." That is part of the truth, for sure, but having been to many national parks, I can suggest that this park has a beauty all its own. There are so many interesting formations to wonder about, lots of trails for hiking from... More

This is one of my favorite national parks. It is absolutely beautiful to drive through and so many animal sightings. I think it would be great for kids and adults. We only had one day so we did the drive around the park and it was just beautiful.
