Nice stop between Bismarck and Medora. No bathrooms at the cow's location, but a great view! (Two gas stations right off highway for potty/refreshments)

1 minute off freeway to dirt road, then a mile or less up road to top of hill. They ask for a $1 donation per car for upkeep - it's worth it and it is really, really big

It’s a giant cow in the middle of nowhere. Obviously it was great.

Love the FFA Welcome sign at the entrance! This was our third "world's largest" stop on the way to Yellowstone and it was by far our favorite. The view from Salem Sue is amazing and you can climb further up the butte for a stunning 360 view of the area. Please do not drive by Salem Sue without stopping!

This is a great stop for the photo op, but there's a little trail up the hill and a place to climb on rocks and stuff and stretch your legs. GREAT view of the surrounding area as you are high up on a hill.
