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.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Sat): take in the dramatic natural features at Bigfoot Pass Overlook, explore the wealth of natural beauty at White River Valley Overlook, then hike along Saddle Pass Trail, and finally trek along Cliff Shelf Nature Trailhead. On the 16th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the dramatic natural features at Homestead Overlook, take in the dramatic natural features at Conata Basin Overlook, identify plant and animal life at Roberts Prairie Dog Town, explore the striking landscape at Panorama Point Overlook, then explore the striking landscape at Burns Basin Overlook, and finally look for gifts at Badlands Ranch Store.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
