Accessible trails. There were lots of opportunites to walk short distances for pretty views. We saw lots of prairie dogs and bison.

Make sure you take time to see both the north and south portions of the park. The north one is smaller but has great views of the river and overlooks and has some nice rock formations

This park nestled in North Dakota was absolutely beautiful. It doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. On our trip we visited the Badlands, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, Theodore Roosevelt, Little Bighorn, Teton, and Custer State Park in SD. This was my favorite Parker visited, the colorful...More

Theodore Roosevelt NP is remote, not many visitors come here. But it is worth while a visit; it is even nicer than Badlands in South Dokata. Unfortunately, there is no lodging. Most hotels are at Dickinson, a half an hour drive. Medora is closer but...More

Get a place at the Amble Inn and enjoy yourselves. The park is open all day and night but the early morning and late afternoon are the best times to go.

We stayed the first night in Dickinson and the second in Williston because we were going to continue north and it seemed silly to backtrack. As I recall, there a couple of hotels in each and someplace decent enough to eat... More
