Although Badlands National Park's name might not be the most inviting, its landscape of pinnacles, eroded buttes, spires, and an expansive, pristine mixed-grass prairie remain enticing.
Explore Badlands National Park's surroundings by going to Oglala Lakota College Historical Center (in Kyle), Lacreek National Wildlife Refuge (in Martin) and Badlands Petrified Gardens (in Kadoka). Next up on the itinerary: explore and take pictures at Loop Road, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Badlands National Park, explore the striking landscape at Yellow Mounds Overlook, and hike along Fossil Exhibit Trail.

For other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Badlands National Park holiday maker site .

In July in Badlands National Park, expect temperatures between 91°F during the day and 60°F at night. You will leave for home on the 9th (Fri).
