Little Missouri State Park Is The Single Best State Park In North Dakota And It’s Just Waiting To Be Explored

Although North Dakota isn’t usually considered an outdoor enthusiast’s top destination, it should be. The state parks alone consist of everything from huge lakes, quiet forests, and – of course – breathtaking badlands. Many people head to the state’s only national park for the latter, but Travel + Leisure named the Little Missouri State Park the best in the state for its amazing, rugged landscape that is without the amount of traffic the national park gets. It’s all the great parts of the other without the busyness – what more could you ask for?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Visit the park’s webpage or Facebook page for more information. Keep in mind that, unlike other year-round parks in North Dakota, the park is open seasonally from May to October.
