The badlands in ND are absolutely beautiful. They are wild and unusual. I can see why Teddy Roosevelt started the national parks after visiting the area.

This is a beautiful National Park with extraordinary views. We traveled there for spring break - but spring wasn't at TRNP yet! It was still a great experience an awe hole to go back again this summer.

This is a beautiful National Park. Highly recommended. Seen some buffalo fairly close to the road. Made for a great photo!

I grew up 30 miles from this piece of God's handiwork. Every time friends and family come wondering what we have to offer, I take them to the North Unit of the TR Park

Stopped here shortly after the visitor center. The view of the frozen river was spectacular. Beautiful scenic view of the badlands area. Worth stopping for a few minutes and taking it all in.

The park is a must see for North Dakota. Everyone thinks North Dakota is flat with nothing to see and they are completely wrong. The mountains are beautiful with all the color in the layers. There is a lot of historical information that is posted...More
