About the Park
Words like “fossil beds” and “geologic formations” may not sound thrilling to many people besides bioarcheologists, but you really have to see it to believe it. Badlands National Park features a breathtaking landscape that you won’t soon forget, and a perfect camping destination for your family.
The National Park Service shares the following on the website:
The geologic formations at Badlands are created from two processes: deposition (the process of rocks building up over time), and erosion (the process of rocks wearing down). As a result, the layered ridges and canyons at Badlands National Park have stunning and unique features.
