The One Spot In North Dakota That Must Be Seen To Be Believed

North Dakota’s badlands are a marvel of nature. Through the right conditions over thousands of years they have been shaped and formed to what they are now. Today, they can be visited in the state’s popular Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Certain places within the park have become famous as far as their amazing views, unusual rock formations, and even being a well-populated spot for prairie dogs. There is no more loved spot, however, than the Painted Canyon Overlook. Photos of this place don’t do it justice – you have to see it in person to believe it.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Have you ever seen the Painted Canyon Overlook? It’s well worth the visit and can’t be truly appreciated unless viewed in person. If you have any photos you’ve taken at the overlook, feel free to share them with us or with our Instagram page @onlyinnorthdakota to have them featured!
