  • Particularly interesting for Tierfeunde the Meadow "Roberts Prairie Dog Town" here, thousands of the cute living "black-tailed prairie dogs" - take an Obektiv with long focal length's worth. There are not only Prairi dogs but also hunters who have seen it on the cute animals like the Coyotes

  • This is absolutely a must visit location! This place is crawling with cute little prairie dogs! There are tons of them and they will just sit there for hours watching you! At times they may even come up close to you

Where to stay in Badlands National Park

While Badlands National Park provides a handful of campgrounds within the park's boundaries, the Cedar Pass Lodge is the only place inside the park that gives you a roof over your head. Sitting 100 km (62.5 mi) away, Murdo is the most developed town east of the park. Here you'll find a handful of economy chain motels and locally owned lodges. About the same distance west of the park, Rapid City offers the same range of accommodations, but with more places to choose from. Rapid City provides more entertainment options and sits to the east of the Black Hills and north of Wind Cave National Park, making it a better choice as a place to stay if you're planning a longer vacation in the area.
