TR National Park North Unit-A popular & easy trip
March 27, 2017
I love taking visitors, even young children to the North Unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park (TRNP). It’s on the very south edge of McKenzie County, and is one of those features that makes McKenzie County a world class destination. In classic North Dakota style, the TRNP under promises and over delivers. You’ll be amazed when you put on your hiking shoes and explore the park.
