Basic Information

Theodore Roosevelt National Park preserves three areas of rugged, beautiful badlands in southwestern North Dakota. It was established in honor of the landscape's influence on Theodore Roosevelt who, as a young man, hunted and ranched in the Little Missouri Badlands.

The park is open year-round.

  • Scenic drives explore the colorful landscape and usually offer glimpses of bison, prairie dogs, deer, and more.
  • Hiking trails range from paved walking paths to rugged wilderness routes.
  • Ranger-led programs are offered daily in the summer months with other special events throughout the year.
