We stopped at the Teddy Roosevelt Nat’l Park North Unit near Watford, ND for a night around July 19. We had been there last year, but this year we found the first 6 or 7 miles from the entrance is under construction, very dusty and slow going. But we got to see many Bison. It was very quite there, overall we enjoyed it a lot.

Friday morning found us sleeping late. We had less than 200 miles to drive. But they proved to be slow miles, using much gasoline. Fuel wise and ease of driving, I believe if we had gone to the South Unit, then followed I-94 to Bismarck, ND then US 83 to Minot it would have cost less in fuel. US 85 is at times very rough, with a lot of hills and dells, ups & downs. At Watford where we took ND Route 23, it is much the same. Both have many large dump trucks and tanker trucks roaming them as well.

Thanks for the pictures of the campground. I wonder how that works out if you're having a picnic and a buffalo herd surrounds you.What do you do? Hide under the picnic table?

When I was stationed at Minot AFB we ran to TRNP a few times for extended weekend camping. I loved that park. It really is beautiful, and you can literally get close enough to the buffalo for it to be dangerous. It's amazing how big they can get. Thanks for the pictures!

We were there two years ago. When you do get to go there, plan on spending some time at the North and the South unit campgrounds. Each area has it's unique differences. Driving the wildlife loops early in the morning is a great time to observe the animals that inhabit the park.

Late in the evening was a good time to see the Bison on the move for us.
