What to do in Little Missouri State Park

This information was provided by North Dakota Parks & Recreation Department

Wind, water and sand... these components sculpted North Dakota's wildly rugged Little Missouri Breaks Country. Called "Mako Shika" or "where the land breaks" by the Sioux, these unusual land formations offer the state's most awe-inspiring scenery.

Some of the most picturesque Badlands scenery can be found at Little Missouri State Park. Most of this primitive park is accessible only on foot or horseback.

Electrical hookups are available to campers, however, all other facilities are primitive.

Backpacking and horseback riding on the park's 30 miles of trails are popular activities. Horse corrals are available for groups bringing in their own horses and artesian wells are located within the park for horse watering purposes. In addition, a horse riding concession with horse rentals and guide services is available. Use of certified weed-free hay is required and is available for sale at the park.
