Little Missouri National Grassland, Medora

4.0
#3 of 6 in Scenic Drive in North Dakota
Little Missouri National Grassland is a National Grassland located in western North Dakota, USA. At, it is the largest grassland in the country. Enclaved within its borders is Theodore Roosevelt National Park, which is managed by the National Park Service (and therefore not included in the preceding statistics). The Little Missouri National Grassland was once a part of the Custer National Forest, but is now a part of the Dakota Prairie Grasslands, a National Forest unit consisting entirely of National Grasslands. A predominant feature of the grassland is colorful and beautiful badlands, a rugged terrain extensively eroded by wind and water. It is a mixed grass prairie, meaning it has both long and short grass.
The boundaries of the grasslands on certain maps can be misleading. Within the boundaries of the national grassland are significant portions of state-owned and privately owned land, much of it leased by cattle ranchers for grazing. Overall, in descending order of land area, it is located in parts of McKenzie, Billings, Slope, and Golden Valley counties.

  • We drove through the grassland, it is a very beautiful site, but keep a half of tank of gas always, we went for an hour at a time without seeing another vehicle, towns of less than 100.  more »

  • This was quick stop for us on our way to Glacier National Park. Camp site was inexpensive but clean. From what we can tell, there was not much to do unless you were looking to hunt.
  • So many beautiful places to camp and enjoy the nature
