Explore It. Adore It. Medora

Medora has been a family tradition for generations! No matter the time of year, it can be a little escape or a full-fledged adventure. Whatever it is for you, these North Dakota Badlands will keep callin’ you back for more.

The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation is a public non-profit organization formed by a multi-million dollar gift from Harold Schafer and his family, whose love for Medora began to impact the little Badlands town in 1962. Today, we operate history, education, and entertainment venues that allow the traveling public to be inspired by the Badlands the way Theodore Roosevelt and Harold Schafer were.

“My obligation today is to see that Medora’s greatness can be carried on after my lifetime, that its future can be even better than the past.”


We connect people to Medora for positive, life-changing experiences.
