Tourists take photos of wild horses June 18, 2016, in the south unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. 

North Dakota’s national parks will remain "as accessible as possible" during the partial federal government shutdown, the National Park Service says.

Park roads, lookouts, and trails at Theodore Roosevelt National Park and Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site will remain open but emergency and rescue services will be limited. 

The Bodmer Overlook Trail and other trails outside of the fort walls at Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site are accessible. The fort and visitor center are closed.
