Welcome to Badlands National Park

Badlands National Park

The Lakota - the Native American tribe that was led for many years by Chief Sitting Bull - gave this area of South Dakota the name "mako sica", which translates to "land bad". They weren't exaggerating, and modern-day visitors to Badlands National Park should brace themselves for an unsettling, and truly otherworldly, terrestrial experience. The landscape, drenched and wind-blasted for millennia, has been formed into a series of sharp ridges, steep-walled canyons, gullies, pyramids and buttes; with the exposed rock often appearing in beautiful bands of colour, from deep purple, through vermilion, to orange and gold. Visitors to Badlands National Park will find plenty of well-signed hiking trails, and first-class camping facilities. Whatever you do, don't forget to pack your camera.
