I didn't see this place interesting and worth to drive almost one hour . Don't recommend it at all specifically if it is far from you.

Our visit to the Badlands was what we expected as many of the reviews on here.
We paid the $10 reservation fee and had no issues. The trails were well marked and fairly easy.
The badlands are interesting to see. Sucks you can't walk on them anymore but understandable.
The fall colours were beautiful!!

Very bad experience during the thanksgiving holiday. We got ticket not even parking in side a farm drive, just stopping at the side road for a photo, only one person off the car and all others still on the car. This place is so stingy and not friendly to outsiders. Never visit again.

Many years ago, the badlands are open. Now, no step on that special lands n entry by reservation only, disappointed.!
We went there yesterday with 4 fall colors around the side of the roads which was beautiful. The car park costed $20/car for half an hour which is worth only if you are going next to Terra Cotta Conservation Aera which is included.

Was anticipating a more expansive representation of the "badlands". It was a nice walk to and from them and glad that we did not have friends who live 1 1/2 hours away join us. It would have been disappointing after the trip.
Lovely staff and would recommend as part of a day's outing.

Nice to see if you are touring this area. It’s only a short walk from the parking to the viewing deck. Dogs are allowed! It’s not a big feature so you are likely to spend around 45 minutes here. You still need to book a spot in advance.

A nice stop in Caledon. Can walk roadside or trail. We enjoyed the walk and the sites. Nice view. Takes about 30 minutes to enjoy.

We drove 1 1/2 hours only to discover we booked an accessible parking spot. We were refused entry. They would not let us park. 3 1/2 hours wasted. The booking site is very confusing so please don’t make this mistake. Apparently this has happened before and they have not corrected it on their site.

So I have had this on my todo list for years and finally went. I'm really glad we went, but was also slightly disappointed. It's a pleasant short trail from the parking lot. We spent probably 10-15 minutes at the viewing area. We would have stayed longer but it was a very hot day. Worth a visit, but if you are going to balk at the price it may not be worth it for you.
