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.
Get out of town with these interesting Badlands National Park side-trips: Interior (Badlands National Park & Hurley Butte Horseback Riding), Pine Ridge Reservation (in Manderson) and South Dakota's Original 1880 Town (in Murdo). There's still lots to do: take a memorable drive along Loop Road, appreciate the extensive heritage of Sage Creek Wilderness Area, appreciate the history behind Wounded Knee Massacre Monument, and identify plant and animal life at Roberts Prairie Dog Town.

For traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Badlands National Park road trip planning app.

In September, plan for daily highs up to °F, and evening lows to °F.
