I remember a trip thorugh the Badlands 20 years ago and thought it was one of the most amazing places I have ever been. I am now bringing my husband and two teenage sons to spend 8 days touring North and South Dakota. We are very laid back and don't need a lot of tourist attractions -- just beautiful natural surrondings, hiking, and (if possible) good food.
We are planning as of now to spend two nights, one full day in the Badlands National Park at Cedar Pass Lodging. Is there enough to do to spend two nights? I know trails are limited, and I was also wondering about the road construction in the Badlands National Park and how that is affecting the access to trails. Will it be too hot to hike midday in late July early August?
