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.
You've added Sheep Mountain Table Road, South Dakota's Original 1880 Town, Conata Basin Overlook, and other attractions to your itinerary. There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape of Badlands National Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Yellow Mounds Overlook, steep yourself in history at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, and get great views at Pinnacles Overlook.

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

In September, daytime highs in Badlands National Park are 81°F, while nighttime lows are 49°F. You'll have a few hours on the 12th (Thu) to wrap things up before traveling home.
