  • Fodor's Choice


  • Resort is a town unto itself, with many luxury activities


  • Quite expensive

Fodor's Review

The former cavalry post–turned–ghost town is now a privately owned collection of Western-theme tourist attractions with a golf resort, spa, riding stables, convenience store, RV park, and hiking trails, adding up to make this the nicest place to eat, shop, and overnight within 25 miles of the park. The main lodge is the Badlands Hotel, a two-story affair with lobby staircase and opulent Tiffany chandelier. Upstairs hallways have the slightly naughty aura of an old bordello. The rooms, to be sure, are outfitted with everything modern. In addition, there are time-share condos across the "boardwalk" and a Pueblo-style motel, the Cavalry Post, down the street. Badlands guests can use the latter's swimming pool. An upscale but casual restaurant and lounge are a walk through a breezeway.
