Theodore Roosevelt Wilderness

General Maps Contacts Area Management Wilderness Laws Trip Planning Images

General Trip Planning Information

Please visit the park's website, or stop in or call one of the park's three visitor centers to get trip planning information and learn about current trail, weather, and river conditions.

Recreational Opportunities

The park is a great place for scenic touring, hiking, backpacking, wildlife watching, bird watching, and canoeing (depending on the season.) There are limited opportunities for cross country skiing in winter.

Climate and Special Equipment Needs

Weather is often harsh in winter, with temperatures below -30 and fierce winds. However, some winter days are pleasant and wildlife viewing can be outstanding. Summers are warm with occasional thunderstorms. Spring tends to be rainy, while fall is often warm and sunny.

Safety and Current Conditions

There are no approved drinking water sources in the backcountry. There are springs and wells, which supply water for wildlife, but none are certified safe for human consumption. Plan to carry in all your drinking and cooking water.
