The two RV Gypsies
at Makoshika State Park
1301 Snyder Street
Glendive, MT 59330

August 26, 2016

Makoshika State Park ("ma-KO-sh(ih)kuh" from the Lakota Maco sica, meaning 'bad land' or 'land of bad spirits') is the largest of Montana's state parks at more than 11,000 acres. It is located east of Glendive. The park contains spectacular badlands which conceal dinosaur fossils. The park contains rock from the Hell Creek Formation. Dinosaurs such as Triceratops were found there. In 1997, a fossil Thescelosaurus was found at Makoshika by an expedition led by Jack Horner and Bob Harmon. Birds such as turkey vultures, prairie falcons and eagles make their homes there. The visitor center houses a small museum with displays about geology and local fossils.

  • There is an 18 Hole Disc Golf Course, which the two RV Gypsies did not use, that some people say is one of the toughest disc golf courses in the U.S. Set right into the Badlands, the course has difficult and somewhat intimidating holes.

  • There is also an amphitheater, which during the summer often puts on educative talks, walks, and performances.

The park also features an archery site and a 16-site campground which the two RV Gypsies did not check out. But the two RV Gypsies did enjoy a very scenic drive throughout the park, a a few nature trails and amazing rock formations.

Lee Duquette set up the camera to get a photo of himself pretending food was rolling down the picnic table and into his mouth. He said, "Karen, where is the food?"
