There was a snow storm coming so we made a quick stop. Comfortably ran the entire scenic drive in an hour including a little hiking. Nice for this type of visit can’t see spending a day there unless you do some hiking

It was so cool! Rock formations are amazing. Seeing a few big horned sheep was a bonus. Take some time to read the information posted at some of stopping points, makes it a lot more interesting.

The drive through the badlands was one of the most incredible things I have seen. I felt like I was on a different planet! It was very windy the day we were there or we would have hiked on some of the trails.

A long drive from Rapid City, but worth the travel. The Canyons are impressive and the road through the national park are well maintained. An informative visitors center depicts the history of the Badlands. Worth the Drive.

Please do not miss this park in your lifetime! This is one of the most amazing and unique sceneries in all of the United States and it is highly undervalued, in my opinion.
