Theodore Roosevelt National Park - North Unit


Theodore Roosevelt came to Dakota Territory in 1883 to mend a broken heart after the death of his wife and his beloved mother on the very same day. He was a skinny, young, spectacled dude from New York. He could not have imagined how his adventure in this remote and unfamiliar place would forever alter the course of the nation. Visitors to Theodore Roosevelt National Park’s North Unit will find abundant watchable wildlife including bison, elk, prairie dogs, deer and golden eagles, just to name a few.

The Visitor Center, located at the entrance, is the beginning of a Scenic Byway drive of 14 miles that takes you through the North Unit.

The campground is located four miles from the entrance of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park’s North Unit. Camping is available to guests year-round.

“I would not have been President had it not been for my experience in North Dakota.” – Theodore Roosevelt
