Theodore Roosevelt Road Trip

This road trip includes parks: Wind Cave National Park, Badlands National Park, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Custer State Park and more!

"I never would have been President if it had not been for my experiences in North Dakota," Theodore Roosevelt once remarked.

Roosevelt first came to the badlands in September 1883 on a hunting trip. While here he became interested in the cattle business and invested in the Maltese Cross Ranch. He returned the next year and established the Elkhorn Ranch.

Located in southwestern South Dakota, Badlands National Park consists of 244,000 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with the largest, protected mixed grass prairie in the United States.

From Badlands, Wind Cave and Theodore Roosevelt National Parks to Custer State Park, this road trip offers some great adventures through South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
