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.

This was a wonderful National Park visit. My wife, the dog and I spent a little over a day in getting to know the North and South units. The weather was windy and there were thunderstorms in the area. Even so, we had plenty of sunshine to take in the natural beauty of the park. As the park's name suggests,... More

We drove through the park in Dec. It snowed a few days ago so some of the roads were closed but the areas we were able to see were absolutely beautiful! Definitely will be coming back again.

My wife and I enjoyed the visitors center and scenic drive very much. We chose not to do any hiking, were there about 2 hours. The park service was very friendly and informative. We saw a lot of wild life - up close - buffalo, deer, prairie dogs and lots of birds. I think the season you visit can change... More

It is a great place to visit whether it is in the summer season or in the cooler months. There is less traffic at this time of year but you still see plenty of animals. Wild Horses, tons of deer and buffalo. The scenery and drive is still great even during this time. Love this place. Peaceful, quiet and beautiful.

This National Park has many interesting geographical formations. There is a wide variety of cliffs, valleys, ravines, etc. There is also a lot of wildlife here. I saw thousands of prairie dogs in a couple of locations within the park. I also saw a couple of different herds of wild horses and many buffalo. There are many of types of... More

Went here with a couple friends, there were lots of wildlife we saw including horses, bison, ground hogs, and various birds. There are plenty of hiking trails for a park in North Dakota.
