Great news! Hwy 240 has now reopened through the park. We had some major snow drifts on the loop road, but they have now been cleared.

Notch Trail is worth hiking. It is a park favorite. If you aren't afraid of gravel roads, also take Sage Creek Rim Rd to see the bison!

Stay home and stay safe. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit in your car, let someone know where you are going and the route you are taking, and let them know you arrive safely. But really, today is a great day to stay inside where it’s warm.

It’s our 90th birthday! On March 4, 1929, Pres Coolidge signed the bill authorizing Badlands NM. This allowed for acquisition of private lands and building of roads. It was nearly 10 more years before the park was established and opened to the public.

As comes to a close, we would like to give a shout out to our Exotic Plant Management Team. Armed with backpack sprayers, ATVs, and tyvek suits, this crew is tasked with keeping out prairie as pristine as possible.

We have some Achaeotherium as big, if not bigger than that! And out Daeodon was approximately bison sized!
