Badlands National Park

Interior, SD

The Badlands National Park, or "mako sica" as it is known to the Lakota people, is a place of mystery, spirituality and natural beauty. Located near Wall, South Dakota, the Badlands National Park consists of 244,000 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with the largest, protected mixed grass prairie in the United States.

Once home to ancient marine life, early mammals and now bison, bighorn sheep and ferrets, Badlands National Park is a must-see stop filled with painted canyons and photo opportunities.

One million visitors are attracted to the park's 244,000 acres each year, which are divided between three units for hiking and exploring. The Stronghold and Palmer Creek Units to the south are also part of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. An entrance fee is required to enter Badlands National Park, and is valid for 7 days.

FREE DAYS for 2012: April 21-29 (National Park Week), June 9 (Get Outdoors Day), September 29 (Public Lands Day), and November 10-12 (Veterans Day weekend).

Booking Instructions: One pass is needed per vehicle or motorcycle, please select the appropriate number. The Park pass is valid for 7 days once validated upon arrival at the park.
