Western South Dakota bursts with beauty and color, as proven by the Badlands National Park. This 244,000 acre prairie is well characterized by its name, with the rugged terrain and striking landscape.

The largest protected prairie with mixed-grass, Badlands National Park is home to numerous wildlife species, which includes bison, deer, antelope, swift fox, and the bighorn sheep. The endangered black-footed ferret also calls this place home. Aside from the wondrous fauna, the Badlands Park is also a haven for paleontologists. Having the largest deposits of Oligocene epoch fossils, experts have also proven the area?s huge role in prehistoric animal life.

Hiking and camping are just two top examples of activities that can be enjoyed in the Badlands National Park.
