The largest state park in Montana is called the Makoshika State Park located in the city of Glendive. This 11,000-care state park is named after a Sioux word ?Makoshika?, which means ?bad earth?. The place was named because of its rugged terrain. This badland is actually a paleontological site that contains numerous dinosaur fossils. Some of the rocks were even part of another dinosaur excavation site, the Hell Creek Formation.

Several dinosaur bones had been found in Makoshika, including a Triceratops and Thescelosaurus, a rare dinosaur that was found in 1997. Aside from being a dinosaur site, the park is also an ideal place for bird watching, as eagles, vultures and prairie falcons have called these lands their home. The park also features an 18-hole golf course, which was touted to be one of the toughest courses in the US. Other attractions include an amphitheater and group shelter.
