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'll find plenty of places to visit near Badlands National Park: Wounded Knee Massacre Monument (in Wounded Knee) and Lacreek National Wildlife Refuge (in Martin). And it doesn't end there: take a memorable drive along Loop Road, stroll through Notch Trail, trek along Saddle Pass Trail, and explore the striking landscape of Badlands National Park.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Badlands National Park attractions planner.

In September, daily temperatures in Badlands National Park can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
