A ridge that goes through the park, and is the site of incredible rock formations, which are being eroded, and therefore slowly change over time.

Badlands Wall

This entire route is just so scenic. The Badlands Wall area was amazing. You can walk several of the paths or trails here and around the areas. A must see!

This place is like no other. It just appears out of the plains and reminds me of the land before time. A gem in the national park system. Highly recommend!

If there is anything to see once in your life, it is the Badlands. It's stunning and so much fun. Visitors can really roam around and you can do anything from standing on an observation deck, getting close to the edge all the way to hiking through trails. There are nice walkways built up to aid in walking around and... More

We went to it on our way to Yellowstone and so glad we stopped. The views ara amazing, is not crowded and is very relaxing to walk and take the view. Great for picnics and nature watching.

There is so much room to explore here. I fully recommend getting a room at the Badlands Inn because you still get great views (on a clear day from the right spot, you can see at least 50 miles). Hopefully you are overnight on a clear one because after the Ranger night program, there is a guy who will help... More

Given the January weather we just drove the scenic loop and visited the Visitor Center museum but we really enjoyed our visit. You certainly wonder what people traveling thru thought when they got here! The colors and formations make it feel other worldly or something you would see in a sci fi movie. I was amazed at all the tracks... More

Please go, go, go! If at all possible, this is one place everyone should go and see. It looks almost unreal and you tell yourself that what you are looking at is real. I can't imagine people hundreds of years ago coming across this, what they must have thought. This is an education for all.

The Badlands are must see if you are headed out west. They are so beautiful and I have never quite seen anything like it before. Pictures do not do this place justice! The landscape and rocks make you feel like you are on the moon or in a movie. If you are with kids, be sure to look at the... More

The Badlands were absolutely remarkable for both its varied geography and plentiful wildlife. It consists of 244,000 acres of dramatic wilderness. It's the home to grasslands, towering layered rock formations, valleys, steep canyons, bison, big horn sheep, badgers, and prairie dogs. We were fortunate to admire all of the above. The Badlands appeared all the more impressive because they were... More
