Theodore Roosevelt National Park

4.7
National Parks · Historic Walking Areas · Hiking Trails
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.
