The Medora fun you've come to know and love from the summer doesn't stop when summer's over.
Fall in the Badlands is amazing!
The changing colors of the leaves against the muted tones of the Badlands is the perfect backdrop for exploring the trails and streets both in and outside of Medora. Plus, the cooler weather brings the wildlife out to play and make the fire place in lobby of the Rough Riders Hotel the perfect place to cozy up for great conversation or a good book from the library. Here's everything you can look forward to this fall.
A Bully Round of Golf
We're just getting started at Bully Pulpit Golf Course! The course will be a 9-hole layout to put in some work on our new campaign, Legacy BP, to improve the course for next season! Don't worry though, you can still tee 'em up till October 18 at Bully!
Stay and Dine in Luxury
The Rough Riders Hotel is absolute magic in the fall. Stepping from a crisp autumn day into the history steeped lobby with its crackling fire place and cozy chairs is an escape all in itself. Now, pair that with a specialty dinner at Theodore's, drinks at TR's Tavern, and a nights stay you are sure to leave Medora feeling renewed!

Adventure in the Great Outdoors
Medora is your Basecamp to Theodore Roosevelt National Park -- and fall and winter are AMAZING times to experience this magical place -- for a few days or just a few hours. Between uninterrupted hiking, amazing viewing opportunities of TRNP's wild creatures, and the best night sky in the world, is a wonderful time to experience the place that inspired President Theodore Roosevelt.
Big Treks and Epic Views
Hit the Maah Daah Hey -- 150+ miles of epic single track trail-ready for you to venture on to whether by foot, hooves, or wheels. Fall on the world-famous Maah Daah Hey trail is great because the trail is in great shape, the temperatures are perfect for a long ride, and the views the trail is known for are even better with a mix of fall colors coming into effect.
History Abounds in Medora
Learn the fascinating history of this tiny paradise in the Badlands. Don't miss out on the Theodore Roosevelt National Park Museum, the Chateau de Mores Interpretive Center that tells the wild story of the creation of Medora, the Cowboy Hall of Fame, and more!
Touch history inside TR's first ranch, the Maltese Cross Cabin before you see what it was like to live as a Marquise inside de Mores' actual frontier home -- dubbed "The Chateau" by the 1800s locals. After a visit to Western Edge Book Store, or one of the other wonderful shops in town (fall hours may vary), you'll be able to bring back the incredible of Medora home with you!
