  • This is a great place to see and hear the prairie dogs in the Badlands park. Don't feed them. Don't approach them. The reason they bark is to warn others that you're in the area. There are more...  more »
  • It was very cool to watch the prairie dogs. They are the cutest little things that make all sorts of noise-worth the stop even if it’s just for 10 minutes!  more »

  • The prairie dogs are fun to watch! Once you know what they are, you'll notice them in other places and states. Some tourists got too close --- even though they had telephoto lens. The prairie dogs are more active and comfortable when you give them space and wait patiently. They seem to be out all day.
  • This is worth the drive on the dirt road! The prairie dogs were so cute and there were >100 of them! It looked like there were adolescents playing when we visited in late August. Also on the drive to the prairie dog town, we saw 2 bighorn sheep and a bison (e didn't see any on the main, paved park roads). We took the dirt road in a sedan car with no problems.
