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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Badlands National Park: Wounded Knee Massacre Monument (in Wounded Knee), Oglala Lakota College Historical Center (in Kyle) and South Dakota's Original 1880 Town (in Murdo). Spend the 23rd (Sun) exploring nature at Badlands National Park. The adventure continues: admire all the interesting features of Loop Road, hike along Notch Trail, look for all kinds of wild species at Roberts Prairie Dog Town, and stroll through Door Trail.

To find maps, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Badlands National Park route planning tool.

Expect a daytime high around °F in August, and nighttime lows around °F.
