Medora, North Dakota – Theodore Roosevelt National Park is announcing additional modifications to operations in response to guidance from federal, county, and local officials. As of April 4, 2020, park visitor centers, campgrounds, and a portion of the South Unit road are closed until further notice. Where it is possible to adhere to the latest health guidance, open spaces, trails, and picnic areas will remain open to provide healthy options for the public to enjoy.  

The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners at Theodore Roosevelt National Park is our number one priority. The park is working with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and reduce public risk. We will notify the public when we resume full operations and provide updates on our website and social media channels.  

The NPS urges park visitors to follow CDC guidance for preventing the spread of infectious diseases by maintaining a safe distance between yourself and other individuals; washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze; and most importantly, staying home if you feel sick.   

We ask that high risk populations, such as the elderly and people with underlying conditions take extra caution and follow CDC guidance .   

Updates about NPS operations will be posted on Please check with individual parks for specific details about park operations
