Sheep Mountain Table is the highest area in the park at nearly 3,300 feet above sea level. Horses or cattle might be seen roaming the area because of agreements made with local ranchers on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Part of the agreement between the National Park Service and the Oglala Lakota Nation is that park lands remain accessible to tribal ranchers on the Reservation. Badlands National Park is one of the only NPS units that allows this.
