    We went about 26 km round trip to see this buffalo jump and we feel that it was worth the effort. This spot offers a panoramic view of beautiful canyon. The sun was perfect so the area was full of col...  more »

    Great campground. A little pricey for amenities provided, but it's close to the river and has plenty of hills to climb. Great camping experience, especially for families.

    You can see forever. We were up on the bluffs. Wow the scenery was amazing. Watch the road going down on the west side. Crazy dips and holes.

    Love this little-known gem in the middle of the Badlands. Great hiking in this area on unofficial trails!

    Beautiful park. Fantastic views from the top, you can drive down or walk if it's too muddy and wander for hours enjoying the unique beauty the badlands have to offer. Fall and spring are the best times to visit- less bugs.

    It's Wonderful I try to come here at least once a year if not more. I love climbing the hills and trekking through the fields. Often see wildlife. It's got several picnic sites, they are all nice and shady. There's a big clearing near the river that's perfect for playing frisbee. If you have not been here yet you need to come and check it out! Truly a hidden gem!
