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.
Explore Badlands National Park's surroundings by going to Badlands Petrified Gardens (in Kadoka), Murdo (South Dakota's Original 1880 Town & Pioneer Auto Museum) and Cathedral Spires Hiking Trail (in Custer). There's much more to do: take a memorable drive along Loop Road, look for all kinds of wild species at Roberts Prairie Dog Town, take in the dramatic natural features at Yellow Mounds Overlook, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Badlands National Park.

To see photos, reviews, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Badlands National Park trip itinerary builder app .
