  • Perfect spot for pictures and relaxing. Take a moment to stop and appreciate the vastness and beauty of nature.  more »
  • Our first stop in the park. We got there early to watch the sun rise and it was magical. Well maintained parking lot and walkway to the overlook. Off to the sides are some ridges you can walk on.....  more »

  • A nice visitor with lots of information about the Badlands. It is small and there were a lot of people in there on the day we stopped. They have a nice selection of gift items as well a books about the area. The staff was friendly and helpful.
  • Awesome place to spend the day at. Lots of good trails to hike and plenty of good overlooks that you can just drive right up to. They have a great visitor center with souvenirs and any additional information you may need on the park.
