The Little Known Natural Oasis Hidden In North Dakota That’s Impossible Not To Love
Most people know about the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota’s only national park and a very stunning example of the beauty held in the badlands. What many people don’t know is that there is more than one park in the southwest region that encapsulates this stunning natural area. Along with the TRNP, there is a scenic little state park hidden in a valley between the canyons that is a natural oasis for plants, animals, and campers alike. It’s North Dakota’s only seasonally open state park and it will be closed in November until next year, so get there while you still can and enjoy the fall colors!
