  • DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Officials say visitors are flocking to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota after flooding cut into last year's tourism season.
    A park report shows that attendance in June approached totals of 2010, the second-busiest year at the park since 1982.
    The report says there have been more than 204,000 visits to the park in the first six months of the year, compared to about 164,000 during the same time a year ago.
    Park spokeswoman Eileen Andes tells the Dickinson Press there has been an increase of what she calls non-traditional visitors, including oil workers touring the area on their days off.
    Officials say ticket sales at the popular Medora Musical increased 9 percent from last June, and play is up at the nearby Bully Pulpit Golf Course.
