Theodore Roosevelt described the Little Missouri Badlands as “...a land of vast, silent spaces...” and standing at Boicourt Overlook, you can understand what he meant. Stretching away toward the horizon, the broken rolling landscape of Theodore Roosevelt National Park is utterly unique. From here, you can even see beyond park boundaries, where some of the larger buttes in the area stand, silhouetted against the horizon.

It is illegal to remove any resource from a national park. Leave any flower, stone, or other object where you find it so that other visitors can enjoy it as well. 

It is illegal to carve, paint, or otherwise alter anything in a national park.
