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.
Get out of town with these interesting Badlands National Park side-trips: South Dakota's Original 1880 Town (in Murdo) and Badlands National Park (in Interior). There's still lots to do: cruise along Loop Road, explore the striking landscape at Badlands Wall, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Conata Basin Overlook, and hike along Notch Trail.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Badlands National Park trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Oklahoma City to Badlands National Park is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and taxi. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Oklahoma City to Badlands National Park due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Oklahoma City in July since evenings lows in Badlands National Park dip to °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
