Plan Your Visit

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is comprised of three separate areas of land in western North Dakota (see park map).

The North and South Units of the park have scenic drives that lead to stunning views of the Little Missouri Badlands and hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulties. Along the drives, wildlife sightings are common, so be on the lookout.

The historic Elkhorn Ranch Unit lies along a remote section of the Little Missouri River, accessed only by gravel roads. A walking path leads from the parking area to the site of Roosevelt's ranch house, where only the foundation stones remain.

The park is open every day, though some facilities are only open seasonally and roads sometimes close due to snow and ice. Campgrounds are open year-round with limited services in winter.
