Theodore Roosevelt National Park

What more can you say about Theodore Roosevelt National Park that has not already been said? Sure, from a scenic perspective alone, it has to be one of the most beautiful areas in the entire country, but it is so much more. There is Medora, which is a classic tourist destination for anyone aged one on up. The copious biking, hiking and horseback riding trails make it a true outdoor paradise.

Lake Metigoshe State Park

Lake Metigoshe and the surrounding area are a perfect location for a truly all- encompassing getaway. The lake itself is perfect for boating, fishing or any water activity you desire. The park is surrounded by forest, making it great for hiking and trail walks. Lake Metigoshe’s close proximity to the Canadian border also opens the door to more travel ahead.
