The latest film from More Than Just Parks takes us to Badlands National Park, which is nestled in the heart of the Northern Great Plains of South Dakota. The film crew kicked off the journey on the Sage Creek side of the park and then spent several weeks hiking, camping, and backpacking throughout the park. Badlands is renowned as the largest undisturbed mixed grass prairie in the United States, where impressive herds of bison roam and rock towers rise in dazzling formations.
