Loved the loop. It was amazing driving the the painted canyon and seeing Buffalo in the wild. The kids loved all the prairie dogs. Good place for driving or hiking.

Stayed 2 nights. Loads to see and do. Lots of wildlife in the park. The town has been preserved/staged to resemble an old west town. The rough rider hotel does very good breakfast. The steak fondue and musical is well worth taking in.

This is an underrated park. When we passed by this park in 2008, we didn't allot any time for this one since we visited Badlands in south dakoda on that trip. This year we revisited badlands, and we decided to allot 3 hours for this...More
