Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is a one-of-a-kind park with a unique history. In addition to being a memorial park commemorating former president and ardent conservationist Theodore Roosevelt, the land is also recognized for its distinct cultural heritage and varied natural resources. In the 19th century, cattle ranching became one of the chief uses of much of the Badlands, and many came West to seek their fortunes. While cattle brought Theodore Roosevelt to the area, it was the beauty of the landscape that made a deep impression on him. Theodore Roosevelt National Park celebrates the role that the dramatic hills played in shaping one of America's greatest conservationists. While no longer used for grazing today, the park preserves the ranching history of the region. Today, the 70,448-acre park is home to a variety of animals and continues to memorialize the 26th president for his enduring contributions to the protection of our nation's resources.
