My friend and I spent almost 2 hours crawling/ climbing on the hoodoo. Beautiful and so interesting to think that this is all Mother Nature. Not to be missed. Loved the musical sound of the ice cream truck pulling into the parking lot :).

We expected more that 6 hoodoos.. Pretty much outside the parking lot. Now we did appreciate that these things took thousands of years to form and they looked really cool, but we were overall disappointed. It's really built up like its a vast area you can hike around to see these things but it's no bigger that a merry go... More

First off, arrive early! The Hoodoos were interesting and definitely worth the visit, but for us, walking around and exploring the area was just as much fun as seeing the "display Hoodoos". We found several fossils. A trip to the Royal Tyrell museum will help you spot them a little more quickly. Of course, we left the fossils behind, but... More

Went there, saw them. We had a good time exploring and climbing in the area. Good for an hour or so but not a huge deal- still worth seeing.

It is not a large set of hoodoo's to look at you can do it 10-15 minutes if you want. There is a very strong metal set of stairs and landings set more or less in a semi circle to walk on. It does not matter which side you enter on. A great photo op for something that is very... More

Enjoyed the self-guided path tour around and through these little gems in the Badlands. Unfortunately there was some garbage amongst them in places but that was just disrespectful humans and shouldn't take away from the neat natural architecture.

The few hoodoos that are there are pretty cool. And it was fun to see the kids climbing on the Sandhills. But for my 2 yr old it was a bit tough to climb and the hoodoos themselves took less than 10 minutes to see.

We went on a very hot day in the afternoon. It was FULL of tourists and some did get in your way. However, this was such a fantastic place to see. It was amazing. Worth the climb to the top too although quite dangerous getting down!!

Loved the hoodoos. They were very easy to find and they were so interesting. There is a small area that you cannot climb on but other than that, you can climb on a lot of the hills and exploit the badlands a bit more. The crowds were not too bad. Very impressive to see.
