Theodore Roosevelt National Park reviews
While this National Park is not the easiest to get to, and limited accommodations close by, it is definitely worth the effort to plan accordingly and spend time driving through.

This national park is a must see! The scenery paired with the wildlife within the park is amazing! While there, we saw wildlife such as bison, wild horses and prairie dogs. We went right before the sunset and the wildlife was very active and fun to witness. If you are thinking about making a stop here, 100% do! The wildlife you will see and the pictures you will take will be amazing and it will be a great time for anyone and everyone. This park was rated a 4/5 stars simply because the entrance was very tricky to find but other than that it was an amazing stop on our trip!
This place was beautiful! There are many places to stop your car and get out and hike around! The day we went part of the road was completely closed due to construction. Right off the road, you can stop and see prairie dogs, bison, and wild horses! Definitely a nation park must do bucket list park!!
