Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Unit

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is located in western North Dakota and has a well-visited South Unit near Medora and a more isolated North Unit 50 miles north of I-94. A 14-mile (22.5-km) drive into the North Unit leads visitors through the badlands and past prairie dogs, bison and bighorn sheep. Overnight visitors can camp at Juniper Campground or in the backcountry with a permit. One EarthSky member shares their excitement over the national park’s dark skies: “Nothing around at all — great spot!!”
