Welcome to Badlands National Park

This virtual road trip is one way to experience Badlands National Park for people who might not be able to physically visit the park, people who aren’t able to visit all of the park, or those who might find this helpful in planning or assisting their trip to the Badlands.

Each virtual stop includes images and information which are meant to inform and educate virtual visitors on the various aspects of Badlands National Park. All overlooks and trails are virtually accessible in this tour through digital wayside exhibits. We have also created new virtual wayside exhibits that do not physically exist in the park; these stops include points of historical, geological, paleontological, and biological interests.

Visitors are free to experience this tour stop by stop or skip to any feature of interest through the Table of Contents.
