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.
You've now added White River Valley Overlook to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 14th (Sat): explore the wealth of natural beauty at Badlands National Park, then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, and then explore the striking landscape at White River Valley Overlook. On your second day here, take in the dramatic natural features at Big Badlands Overlook, then browse the different shops at Wall Drug, then explore the striking landscape at Badlands Wall, and finally cruise along Loop Road.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Badlands National Park online day trip planner .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
