Discover the most magical spots to pitch your tent or park your rig on your next Theodore Roosevelt Park adventure.
Prepare to be amazed by the colorful badlands of North Dakota.
Colorful badlands inexplicably rise from the grasslands of Western North Dakota. Take a scenic drive to take in the views, or hit one of the many hiking trails. Wildlife viewing ranges from the quirky antics of the prairie dogs to the slumbering strolls of the bison. Watch closely, and you might even spy wild horses. The National Park Service operates two campgrounds in the park. More camping options can be found at Sully Creek State Park and in the Little Missouri National Grassland, including the popular Buffalo Gap Campground. Private RV parks with hookups may be found in nearby Medora.
If you are visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park in July and August, expect temperatures to reach the 80s by midday. The area is windy, and lows drop into the 50s, so carry a jacket. Spring and fall are generally cool during the day and chilly at night, with freezing temperatures not out of the ordinary. Campers heading to TRNP in the winter should prepare for freezing temperatures and plenty of snow and ice. In fact, high temperatures may not reach 32°F.
