Badlands National Park — 15 nights

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sage Creek Wilderness Area and Wounded Knee Massacre Monument. Explore hidden gems such as Pinnacles Overlook and Castle Trail. Explore Badlands National Park's surroundings by going to South Dakota's Original 1880 Town (in Murdo), Hurley Butte Horseback Riding (in Interior) and Lacreek National Wildlife Refuge (in Martin). Spend the 10th (Sun) exploring nature at Badlands National Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Cliff Shelf Nature Trailhead, take in the dramatic natural features at Conata Basin Overlook, cruise along Sheep Mountain Table Road, and hike along Saddle Pass Trail.
