  • This was our first stop during our drive through the Badlands. It was a great first impression of such a vast park and incredible place. Everyone should stop here and take some photos.  more »
  • This was our favorite vista in the park. It was very crowded, being a holiday weekend. Even ran into a friend from 30 years ago.  more »

  • This is a very cool overlook. Buffalo and big horn sheep can be seen from here if you look around! The parking is easy to get into and out of. It makes for a nice and quick stop with nice views for a photo.
  • The first beautiful Badlands overlook. The views are stunning! Looking out you can see the many different colors. If SD has had a wet spring, the whole area smells sweet thanks to the Yellow Sweetclover grass that grows. There are a few ADA accessible walkways for all to enjoy the view. There are also bathrooms here, no more until you reach the visitor's center. Stop and enjoy the creation!
