Named after the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt National Park covers 3 areas of badlands in North Dakota known as the North Unit, South Unit, and Elkhorn Ranch Unit.
The North and South units each have a scenic drive (14-miles and 36-miles, respectively) with optional hikes to enjoy along the way. Keep your eyes open for bison, wild horses, bighorn sheep, deer, prarie dogs, and other wildlife along the way!
The Elkhorn Ranch unit between the North and South units is a location President Roosevelt personally selected for its solitude: he picked this place for peaceful reflection following the death of his wife and mother on the same day.
Theodore Roosevelt National Park is the only national park named after a single person- add seeing his Maltese Cross Cabin to your bucket list as well.
