Loved this national park. It was so quiet and peaceful. Saw groups of prairies dogs, roaming bison, found fossils, and enjoyed the skies and scenery.

I had read some good material on this park and was really looking forward to experiencing it. Unfortunately it turned out the advertising/marketing was more impressive than the actual park. Also, there seemed to be more Parks employees who were very proactive in making sure...More

A lot of the park is accessed via a vehicle, so you could see quite a bit of the park through the vehicle. There are paths, but most are not paved so it may be difficult to push a wheelchair. It is quite flat, however
