MEDORA, NORTH DAKOTA - President Truman established the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Memorial Park on April 25, 1947. Renamed Theodore Roosevelt National Park in 1978 following the addition of the North Unit (1948) and the Theodore Roosevelt Wilderness, the park now covers 70,446 acres. The Painted Canyon Visitors Center along Interstate 94 near Medora features iconic scenery of the American West including the badlands, pictured here, river overlooks as well as sightings of bison, mule deer, prairie dogs, horses and other wildlife. Rangers will answer questions about the Center's exhibits and displays. Hiking trails and picnic areas are also available.
