Badlands National Park Unlocks the Past

Badlands National Park is a geologic vision of painted canyons, pinnacles, and spires that have been carved by the forces of nature to create the 244,000-acre expanse of mystical natural beauty. Located east of the Black Hills in western South Dakota, the dramatic Badlands are a sight to behold, and the ultimate destination for outdoor enthusiasts, and aspiring paleontologists. Once the home of the Lakota American Indians and ancient creatures including the saber-toothed cat, this otherworldly location is an experience not to be missed.

Each year millions of people flock to Badlands National Park to gaze out at the mesmerizing rock striations, with their soft pastel hues, and ever-evolving sedimentary layers. The one-mile fossil bed exhibit trail takes visitors on a journey back in time through the White River Badlands to discover the fossilized remains of mammals dating back to ancient times, with guided tours, and hikes available to learn about the park’s rich history. For a look behind the scenes, The Fossil Preparation Lab gives an insider scientific view of the park’s ancient discoveries.
