Badlands National Park

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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate South Dakota's Original 1880 Town and Wounded Knee Massacre Monument. Museum-lovers will get to explore Oglala Lakota College Historical Center and Red Cloud Heritage Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Badlands National Park: Pine Ridge Reservation (in Manderson), Hurley Butte Horseback Riding (in Interior) and Lacreek National Wildlife Refuge (in Martin). Spend the 5th (Sat) exploring nature at Badlands National Park. There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Loop Road, examine the collection at Armed Forces Display & Gifts, look for all kinds of wild species at Roberts Prairie Dog Town, and hike along Notch Trail.
