MEDORA, ND: Begin a new year with a visit to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Entrance fees will be waived for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday on Monday, January 15. “Winter is a beautiful and quiet time to visit the park,” said Superintendent Wendy Hart Ross. “Wildlife watching is spectacular, as are opportunities for photography, especially with snow blanketing the badlands.” The two other national park units in North Dakota – Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site near Williston and Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site near Stanton – are among the more than 200 national parks that never charge entrance fees. The National Park Service will waive entrance fees on three other days in 2018, including the first day of National Park Week, April 21; National Public Lands Day on September 22; and Veterans Day, November 11.
