Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Theodore Roosevelt National Park Located in the badlands of western North Dakota. This park is divided into 3 units: the North, South and Elkhorn Ranch unit. The park provides visitors with the opportunity to experience many unique habitats such as wide-open prairie, lush river bottoms, canyons and the rugged badlands.

The South Unit entrance is in Medora. The visitor center has a movie, museum and information desk and is open year round. There is a paved, 36-mile scenic loop drive with pullouts and interpretive signs. Roosevelt.s first ranch home, the Maltese Cross cabin is located at this visitor center. The Painted Canyon Visitor Center, located in the South Unit, sits on the rim of one of the most spectacular overlooks in the park. It gives you panoramic views of the North Dakota Badlands.

The Elkhorn Ranch Unit is the location of Roosevelt.s second ranch in the badlands. This is where he chose to stay whenever he came to North Dakota. All that is left of the ranch are the foundations. Currently there are no plans to rebuild it. The North Unit is located near Watford City and has a 14-mile scenic drive that leads to Oxbow Overlook.

There are many hiking trails in the north and south units ranging from easy to difficult. Other activities available in the park are biking, canoeing, fishing, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, and backcountry camping. All roads in the park are open to biking. The best time to take a canoe or kayak down the Little Missouri River is in May or June. Except for developed nature trails, the park trail system is open to horses. You can bring your own horse or use the park concessionaire.
