Badlands National Park

Although Badlands National Park's name might not be the most inviting, its landscape of pinnacles, eroded buttes, spires, and an expansive, pristine mixed-grass prairie remain enticing.
Explore Badlands National Park's surroundings by going to Professor Samuel's Portrait Emporium (in Keystone) and Custer (Wildlife Loop Road, Custer State Park, & more). The adventure continues: cruise along Loop Road, browse the different shops at Wall Drug, trek along Castle Trail, and take in the dramatic natural features at Badlands Wall.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
