Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Comprised of three units: the North Unit, the South Unit, and the Elkhorn Ranch Unit, Theodore Roosevelt National Park stretches across 70,416 acres of western North Dakota. It preserves an area of land that profoundly affected President Theodore Roosevelt and is a mecca for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Abundant wildlife, scenic drives, and miles of trails await your arrival.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is the home to our office and three of our bookstores.

To learn more about the park visit:

Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site

Located on the Knife River directly north of its confluence with the Missouri River. Hidatsa and Mandan hunted bison and other game, but were in essence farmers living in villages along the Missouri and its tributaries. The site was a major American Indian trade center for hundreds of years prior to becoming an important marketplace for fur traders after 1750. Today, visitors can see the archeological remains of earthlodge villages and experience the landscape where Lewis and Clark met Sakakawea on their journey west.

Knife River Indian Villages NHS is home to one of our five bookstores.

To learn more about the site please visit:

Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge

The Refuge offers a wide range of activities by which visitors can become better acquainted with wildlife. Opportunities for viewing and studying wildlife and plants, walking, photography, berry picking, and cross-country skiing are available along the 3.5 mile Prairie-Marsh Scenic Drive, hiking trails, and other open public use areas. However, for your safety these activities are not permitted during the Refuge rifle deer season. Canoeing can be enjoyed on several designated canoe routes. In the spring, photo blinds provide an opportunity for close-up viewing and photographing the extraordinary dance of sharp-tailed grouse. Picnic tables and grills are also provided at several locations for your use. 

Upper Souris NWR is the home to one of our five bookstores.
