Badlands National Park
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. Here you'll have the chance to glimpse bison, bighorn sheep, prairie dogs, and the most endangered land mammal in the United States, the black-footed ferret. Interstate 90 passes through the Badlands, and you can view the landscape and wildlife as you navigate the loop road off the highway. Hiking trails bring you up close to the park's array of wild formations. Find what you're looking for from your Badlands National Park holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy United States itinerary maker tool.
