Plan Your Visit

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

You can explore the park day and night, any time of year. Visitor center hours vary by season. In winter, there are occasional road closures for snow and ice. Campgrounds are open year-round.

There are no restaurants or hotels in the park, but food and lodging can be found in nearby communities. Pets are welcome to visit but must remain on a leash and cannot go on trails.


The following resources may also be helpful as you plan your next adventure in the park:

  • Fun for Familes - activities for people visiting the park with children, including information on the Junior Ranger Program.
  • Ranger-led Programs - rangers host a variety of activities, mainly June through mid-September.
  • Directions - driving directions to the park's three units, including how to get to the remote Elkhorn Ranch Unit.
  • Getting Around - find out how to get from place to place within the park.
  • Things to Do - a listing of activities to enjoy during your next visit.
  • Safety - learn how to avoid common dangers in the park
  • Accessibility - find out what facilities and programming are offered to meet your individual needs

Download a Visitor Guide (PDF 815 KB) This guide lists important park regulations, trip planning information, descriptions of short hiking trails, and other information pertinent to visiting the park. It is a handy tool, though not as handy as this website, which contains far more information than we can fit into the guide.
