Visiting the Canadian Badlands was a perfect ending for our Canadian Rockies trip. They are nice complements to the Rockies. The Hoodoos were great examples of Nature's engineering. Well worth going.

Visitors can walk and touch areas of the Hoodoos. Sensitive areas are protected by large steel fences. Lots to read - lots of room for RV's to park. Washroom to use as well near the parking lot.

We were so thankful that in recent years, the hoodoos have been carefully preserved by creating walking paths around the structures so as to keep people from climbing on them.

We stopped off the main road to see the Hoodoos. Quite bizarre and quirky shapes. The pillars are not as big as I thought they would be but still worth stopping by. The site is wel laid out and you can walk around easily

Great little side trip at the end of our little getaway. My kids loved climbing in the unrestricted areas. Made for some great photos. This little spot provides some great scenery unlike anywhere else in the area.

It was a wonderful sight when you travel through the natural formations of small hills of Drumheller in Alberta, to the amazing Hoodoos. Parking facility is available besides rest rooms ( though avoidable) and a shed for having food. It was a very sunny afternoon but with wind and 3deg temp combination getting the chillness through the bones. What a... More

This place is amazing for learning rock and minerals, Alberta history, first nation history and much more. Very well kept, with informative and clear signs. Every child that lives in Canada should visit this place at least once. :)

Went with young children (6 and under). Ended up spending 3 hours here exploring and playing in this unique landscape. Very cool place. If you are feeling brave I recommend the climb to the top of the valley.
