The 2016 Badlands Astronomy Festival will bring together space science professionals, amateur astronomers, educators, youth groups, South Dakota residents and visitors for a "stellar experience". Join us July 8th-10th to celebrate the beauty of a dark night sky and the wonder of space exploration. Novices and experts alike will enjoy daily family-friendly activities and evening presentations with special guest speakers. Nightly telescope viewing will be sponsored by the NPS Night Sky Program and Celestron.
Celebrate the Sturgis Rally's 76th year with us! Relax by the pool or watch the sun set over the Badlands after experiencing the excitement of a day in Sturgis. Your cabin or shaded campsite at The Badlands KOA is just an hour's drive from Sturgis.
