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.
Visiting Panorama Point Overlook and Loop Road will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Castle Trail and Homestead Overlook. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape of Badlands National Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Roberts Prairie Dog Town, explore the striking landscape at White River Valley Overlook, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Sage Creek Wilderness Area.
