Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Map
315 2nd Ave., Medora, ND 58645, United States

This landscape of mythic western history, where Sitting Bull fought and General Custer hounded the Sioux, has the same eerily eroded badlands, shaggy buffalo, and bighorn sheep that draw crowds to Badlands National Park in South Dakota—but with half the visitors. Also: wild horses.

Cool Fact: In 1883, a 25-year-old politician from back East arrived in these parts to hunt buffalo. He started the first of several ranches (now part of the park) and began his extreme image makeover from scrawny New Yorker to strapping western adventurer (and future president) Teddy Roosevelt.

Don’t Miss: A horseback ride through the hills and badlands, splashing across the Little Missouri River.
