Badlands National Park

Badlands, SD, 57750, United States
TEL: (605) 433-5361

The arid Badlands, which stretch south and west from South Dakota's 244,000-acre Badlands National Park, have a reputation that precedes them, immortalized in Terrence Malick's bleak 1973 film. But this austere, otherworldly landscape also offers surprises for first-time visitors: fossil beds that are up to 37 million years old, and numerous free-roaming bison, fox, and bighorn sheep.
