10 Best North Dakota Resorts



More Ideas in ND: Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is located in the Badlands in western North Dakota. The South Unit of the park offers a scenic loop drive with pullouts to stop and enjoy the views. The South Unit Visitor Center is next to the town of Medora, and offers a museum with exhibits on the history of the park and Theodore Roosevelt. A 17-minute video introduces visitors to the park and museum.

Adjacent to the Visitor Center is the Maltese Cross Cabin, a historical log cabin which first belonged to Theodore Roosevelt, who credits his time in North Dakota with influencing him to become president of the United States. The Elkhorn Ranch Unit of the park protects Roosevelt’s original home in the Badlands, although today, all that remains of the original ranch is a collection of stones from the foundation. The visitor center at the North Unit of the park offers a film and exhibits. A 14-mile scenic drive begins at this visitor center, offering interpretive signage along the way. Hiking trails in the park range from easy to strenuous, and cover a variety of terrain such as canyons and river bottoms, plateaus, steep climbs, grassy prairies, and even a prairie dog town, which can be reached via the moderate Buckhorn Trail. Hikers and boaters with backcountry permits may camp in the park. The Little Missouri River is most accessible for canoeing and kayaking during the summer months of May and June. Other park activities include bicycling and horseback riding. Horses are permitted on all trails. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are popular in the winter months, as the park receives approximately 30 inches of snow per year, over a season that can span October through April. The park offers two campsites for tents and RV’s along the Little Missouri River, the Juniper and Cottonwood Campgrounds. Only a few of the sites are reservable in advance. Both offer potable water, restroom facilities, and raised grills at each campsite. The Roundup Group Horse campground may be reserved by groups and offers raised platforms for tents, a covered picnic area, and ample space for 20 people with 20 horses.

History: The site for the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, in memoriam to the 26th president of the United States, was chosen shortly after his death in 1919. In 1921 the North Dakota legislature and their representatives in congress began to set aside land for the park. By 1924 a group that would later become the Roosevelt Memorial National Park Association set out to explore the Little Missouri Badlands to outline the boundaries of the park. Studies, proposals and counter-proposals would take place over the next several years, as some groups wished to set aside over 2,000 square miles, while other groups felt the land was too valuable to ranchers and preferred a small monument over a park. By 1946, the land accumulated by the government over the years was transferred to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a wildlife sanctuary. Many still felt the land did not warrant National Park status, and the Parks Service itself voted against it. At last, in 1947, President Truman signed the bill that rendered the South and Elkhorn Units the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, with the North Unit added in 1948. The park received full National Park status in 1978 under President Carter, recognizing the diverse natural and cultural resources of the area.

Ongoing Programs and Education: The park offers self-guided nature trails, with signage interpreting the local flora and fauna. During the summer, ranger-led programs are available including Ranger Talks, Ranger Walks and Ranger Hikes, each of which educate guests on the history, biology and geology of the park. Evening campfire programs offer ranger talks at the Cottonwood or Juniper campgrounds. Ranger talks are also offered daily during the summer at the Maltese Cross Cabin, adjacent to the South Unit Visitor Center. The annual Dakota Nights Astronomy Festival takes place in the park each September. The three-day event brings together rangers, astronomers and historians for stargazing, presentations and children’s events including rocket making and launching.

What’s Nearby: The Maah Daah Hey Trail, considered the best non-motorized trail in the Badlands, is a 96-mile trail maintained by the U.S. Forest Service which connects the Theodore Roosevelt National Park’s North Unit with the Sully Creek State Park. Bikes and horses are allowed on this long, winding trail that traverses the Dakota Prairie Grasslands.

More Ideas in ND: National Buffalo Museum

The National Buffalo Museum opened to the public in 1993. Dedicated to the preservation of the history of the bison, the North Dakota Buffalo Foundation also promotes today's bison industry. The museum houses many different artifacts and works of art related to the bison, as well as items related to Native Americans. Visitors can view numerous items, such as several buffalo head mounts, the original Thundering Herd oil painting, a ten-thousand-year-old skull, and a full-size buffalo mount among other wildlife mounts.

The six thousand square foot National Buffalo Museum is situated within a rustic log structure in Jamestown at the Frontier Village. Exhibits at the museum focus mostly on bison history in the plains culture. Displays also include an array of artwork, Plains Indian artifacts, firearms used in the nineteenth century by bison hunters, and prehistoric bison fossils. After visiting the museum, guests can take some time to visit the other nearby attractions of the Frontier Village and the World's Largest Buffalo statue.

Along with the actual museum, the National Buffalo Museum maintains a heard of twenty-five to thirty buffalo. The herd grazes on a pasture of around two hundred acres on both the south and north sides of I-94, visible on at least one side nearly all of the time. The live herd are a huge draw for the museum, representing the start of the "wild west" to those visiting from the east. A number of community events and educational programs are hosted frequently at the museum as well.

"The World's Largest Buffalo" is Jamestown's "claim to fame." The statue stands at twenty-six feet tall, measures forty-six feet in length, and has a weight of 60 tons. Created in 1959, it was local businessman Harold Newman's vision. Over the years, several old structures were moved to the site of the statue, and eventually the Frontier Village came into existence .

The Frontier Village features a number of buildings representative of an old frontier town. The interesting complex includes a post used for trading that now contains a gift shop, post office, saloon, jail, barber shop, fire department, sheriff's office, Louis L'Amour writers shack, and many more. The oldest grocery store in North Dakota was transported to the Frontier Village from the nearby small town of Eldridge. Constructed in 1878, the store now includes a soda fountain from days gone by throughout the summer season, as well as a gift shop.

More Ideas in ND: Red River Zoo

The Red River Zoo was established in 1993 with the goal of creating a leading zoological facility in Fargo, North Dakota. The Red River Zoological Society was able to obtain thirty-four acres of land that was sold and donated by the Anderson Family to the Fargo Park District. In May of 1999, the Red River Zoo began operations and opened its doors to the public. The zoo is now one of the most popular attractions in Fargo and the surrounding area.

The collection of animals at the Red River Zoo focuses primarily on animal species from climates around the world similar to that of North Dakota. Primary parts of the world represented at the zoo are North America, Northern Europe, and Northern Asia. In addition to numerous exhibits, the zoo also includes a Children's Zoo Farm with an emphasis on heritage breeds. The Children's Zoo also focuses on teaching kids the importance of biodiversity and where their food comes from.

The Red River Zoo has continued to grow steadily over the years, and now features a collection of around eighty-nine animal species from through the world. Focuses almost entirely on species from colder climates, the zoo has a unique assortment of animals. The zoo has also had success in breeding a handful of the endangered and rare species of the world, including Sichuan Takin, Pallas' Cats, and Chinese Red Pandas. The Red River Zoological Society has even received an award for its conservation efforts with the Red Pandas from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

A number of indoor viewing areas and outdoor exhibits can be found throughout the grounds of the Red River Zoo. The zoo has also undergone several expansions in recent years. In 2012, the zoo added the Pallas' Cat and White Naped Crane exhibits A state-of-the-art exhibit for the North American River Otter opened in 2013, along with a new Veterinary Center in 2015 that features a public viewing area. In 2016, the zoo opened the Nature's Playland and Children's Zoo Farm.

The Children's Zoo Farm at the Red River Zoo features an Interpretive Center where kids, as well as other members of the family, can learn more about healthy eating habits and how plants grow. The center even includes a functioning Bee Hive. The Children's Zoo also consists of a gift shop, two barns that house both endangered and heritage domestic animals, the Alex Stern Family Foundation Interactive Gardens, and much more.

Construction of the zoo was originally entirely funded through cash donations, as well as donations of materials and services from foundations, local corporations, families, and individuals. The site initially only contained a handful of old farm structures and seven trees. The grounds have since transformed to feature ponds connected by streams, rolling hills, and wonderfully landscaped exhibits. Hundreds of shrubs and trees were planted to give the impression of wilderness.
