“Touchable Beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

My wife and I drove the Badlands National Park just outside Wall South Dakota. I couldn't believe the beauty of the rock formations. The colors were magnificent. We saw bighorn sheep, buffalo, and prairie dogs. If you are ever in the area of South Dakota this twenty-five mile drive will be well worth the drive.

“Beautiful Natural Rock Formations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

You won't see anything like it anywhere else. If you're ever anywhere near this area, take a day to see the park. It's only $15 per car and it's definitely worth that price. One of the most beautiful areas of the country.

“Definitely worth driving through!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

This place is a must see. It is so beautiful. It is definitely worth the $15 to drive through and take lots of pictures. Although, pictures really don't hold a candle to being there. It was VERY windy when we were there...had to hold onto my hat and take pictures at the same time. I wish we would've had time to hike around...maybe next time because there is so much to see & discover here!

“Awesome views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Some of the views at this place are amazing. The rock formations are "wow" & sometimes it feels like you can see forever. There are some hiking trails & around one corner we looked up & saw 5 Bighorn Sheep. Driving through the park there are lots of viewing spots to pull over & take pictures. It's definitely worth the trip. My biggest concern was that I saw young children run right up to the edges of cliffs w/no rails & the parents would be lagging behind. Sometimes you can't even tell that there's a drop off on the other side, so parents need to stay ahead of their children.
