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.
Step out of Badlands National Park with an excursion to South Dakota's Original 1880 Town in Murdo--about 1h 20 min away. Spend the 26th (Wed) exploring nature at Badlands National Park. Next up on the itinerary: explore and take pictures at Loop Road, stop by Badlands Ranch Store, tour the pleasant surroundings at Yellow Mounds Overlook, and hike along Door Trail.

For photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Badlands National Park journey planning website.

Rogers to Badlands National Park is an approximately 9-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Traveling from Rogers in August, plan for little chillier nights in Badlands National Park, with lows around °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
