For those looking to get an immersive park experience, then Theodore Roosevelt National Park camping is a great way to do so. Camping is usually a great way to get into the park early and beat the crowds. While this park is never very busy, after the bulk of the visitors leave (and before they arrive in the morning), Theodore Roosevelt National Park is an especially magical place that is best experienced by camping among the amazing North Dakota badlands.
Theodore Roosevelt had just over 750,000 visitors last year and less than a third of those visitors made it to the North Unit. Our family tends to prefer getting off the beaten path. So, when a park ranger mentioned that one of his favorite hikes, the Caprock-Coulee Trail, was in the North Unit, we didn’t hesitate to drive the 65 miles north from Medora to check it out!
