Anyone visiting the park should make sure to purchase a guide book to the wild horses that make the park their home. The group "North Dakota Badlands Horse" has been documenting these beautiful horses for decades and does have the "2015 Guide to the Wild Horse of Theodore Roosevelt National Park" available at the Western Edge Bookstore in Medora. All the horses have names and are featured in color with their year of birth in the guide. Check out the facebook page North Dakota Badlands Horse" for more information!

Wow! I had no idea that North Dakota had a national park. I was very impressed with the beauty, as far as the eye can see. I took a slow drive through the South Unit, which took over 3 hours. It was a very pleasant way to spend a morning. I would definitely visit this landmark again and next time, I want to tour the North Unit.

Enjoyed an afternoon ride through the park. Most of the roads were closed, due to snow, but the opened part had plenty of scenery and wildlife. There was plenty of buffalo, elk, prairie dogs, wild horses, deer, pheasant and a coyote. I really enjoyed the visit. Entry into the park was free at this time, and the park rangers at the entrance were extremely friendly and helpful.

As we headed west, this stop was our first glimpse of the bison grazing within the park. The scenic drive has a new landscape for you to enjoy at every turn. We also saw deer, prairie dogs, horses and more along the route. The visitor center has an astounding panoramic view that you won't want to miss as well!

We visit this part annually, and we love it there! Both the North and South units are wonderful to drive through, and it a very peaceful place to explore. Plenty of wildlife to spot, great photo-ops of landscapes and animals alike. Wonderful for bird-watching, along with searching for wildflowers. Great place to go!!!
