Theodore Roosevelt National Park – Medora, North Dakota

Theodore Roosevelt National Park – South and North Unit Website – https://www.nps.gov/thro/index.htm Medora, North Dakota

This summer, our big adventure was having a new baby.  But LAST summer we took a month-long road trip out to Montana.

New “National Park” national park #2 for us on this trip was Theodore Roosevelt in North Dakota.  I wasn’t expecting much out of our two night, two day stay, pretty much just another Badlands National Park.  Instead I found a real contender for one of my favorite national parks.

State Parks Closed!? Beautiful alternatives for hiking in South Jersey!

NOTE: As of July 4, 2017, all parks are back open!
