Getting to Badlands National Park
I-90 provides easy access to the Badlands Loop Road, the main road through the park. From the east, take exit 131 and follow the signs three miles south to the Northeast Entrance. From the west, take exit 110 for the town of Wall. Again, follow the signs seven miles south to the Pinnacles Entrance.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the locations of the two main road entrances to Badlands National Park. You can click on the map marker to get directions from wherever you are. Following this is the official park map provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file (sometimes very large files) or a simple image file. The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while this map is useful for general navigation around the park, if you are planning to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Badlands Trail Map.
