    When do you close for the Winter please

    • Hi Rosemary,
      Theodore Roosevelt National Park (and its campgrounds) are open year round. The campgrounds do have limited facilities/services in the winter (vault toilets). And be advised that there are no hookups at the park’s campgrounds.

  2. Where about are the two group sites located on their respective campground maps? I can’t seem to figure it out.
