MEDORA, N.D. (AP) - As the National Park Service celebrates its 100th anniversary, visitation at Theodore Roosevelt National Park is up more than 33 percent from last year.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2avZbLp ) that through the end of June, nearly 229,000 people had visited the western North Dakota park. During the same period last year, about 171,000 visitors were recorded.

The Medora Musical in the Burning Hills Amphitheatre in the Badlands also has seen a surge in visitors. This season is shaping up to be second-biggest for the musical, which is in its 51st summer season.
