Fodor's Review

A half-dozen or so covered picnic tables are scattered over this area, which rests against a badlands wall ½ mi south of Badlands Loop Road. There's no potable water, but there are bathroom facilities and you can enjoy your lunch in peaceful isolation at the threshold of the Badlands Wilderness Area. The Conata Basin area is to the east, and Sage Creek area is to the west.
