Badlands National Park draws visitors from around the world. With rugged terrain and striking geologic deposits, this national park contains one of the world’s richest fossil beds.
Take a 1.5 hour scenic drive from Spearfish and view where ancient mammals such as the rhino, horse, and saber-toothed cat once roamed. Today, the park’s 244,000 acres protect an expanse of mixed-grass prairie where bison, bighorn sheep, prairie dogs, and black-footed ferrets live.
