We stopped for a night at Whitefish Lodge in Whitefish, MT on our way to Glacier National Park. The setting was beautiful but the room we were given overlooked the parking lot. A unique feature was a window that allowed you to soak in the tub and enjoy the view. The problem we discovered rather quickly is the window provided... More

We visited in early spring, most attractions in the Medora area were still closed for the season. But the main park visitor center was open and the park was not crowded. The Park Ranger was very helpful and gave excellent information on the Park and help with bird identification. The hiking trails are wonderful, saw lots of bison and even... More

We stayed in Medora and toured Theodore Rossevelt National Park for two days and saw amazing sights and animals. The painted canyon and scenic view sights from the highway were breath taking. We enjoyed every minute and will definitely be back when the park is in full bloom.

Great place for family. Views are amazing. The drive can be made in one day and well worth the trip to see it.

Was a day trip on our visit to Bismarck. Not too many people in February (6) at visitors center. Very scenic drive in park with snow covering, no traffic so you can drive at your own pace. Animals were not as abundant as in summer.

We spent over 2 hours driving through the park. We saw many animals. We stopped often and just watched the prairie dogs play and talk, there were hundreds of them. Great scenery.

The scenery was so beautiful. And the animals were out everywhere. We went around dusk. We saw a ton of prairie dogs dogs and a fox hunting them. We saw deer and buffalo. And it was such a short drive. This is easily done in a day or less. It was great catching the sunset here.

Theodore Roosevelt Park was incredible. The mountains in all directions appeared endless. The vast unsettled wilderness was amazing. The expansive views continued to impress us. We spotted at least 30 deer in the park, countless prairie dogs scurrying along the ground, an eagle, and a few bison. We visited on Thanksgiving day so the park was nearly empty. We only... More
