Drove right though the park and took some great shots. However the park can be pretty redundant with rocks and prairie dogs

Lots of great views. Very populated area. Fun place to look for fossils. Very hot, and dry as you would expect.

My kids, age 5 and 9, my wife and I recently hiked off path and thoroughly loved looking for fossils. The rugged and sharps rocks deserve respect, but are perfect for hiking on. Beautiful landscape. Make sure to stop at the big visitors center (Rafiel?). There's lots to see.

Scenery unlike anyplace else I've been. We were lucky (sort of) to be there during a thunderstorm, and boy did the sky and the landscape light up.

One of the most unique and beautiful places that I have ever seeing. You can't really describe it, you have to see it. Definitely a bucket list place!

I really wish I had given myself more time to visit the Badlands. It's high on my list to come back.
