    Been there many times. Great place to wheel, they have mud, rocks, and sand. If ya have a fullsize just beware that most of there trails are pretty narrow. Great family that owns and runs it also.

    hit up NITRO or 75-k5 they have gone up there. Nitro and I live a little over an hour or so from there, but I've not personally been out there yet! I guess there is a little bit of everything though. I have heard some of the trails are pretty narrow!
    If you go to Nitro's webpage he got some pics

    hey, hows it going? we go to the badlands about every week or two. havent been since thanxgiving though cause i kinda spun a bearing in the bottom end. but once i get that done, im sure ill b going back soon. ill drop ya a line and let ya know when we are going next. if ya wanna come with us, ur more than welcome. but, u better b ready for water and a lil bit o body damage if ya wanna run some of the better trails. or, u can do what 75-K5 did....park ur rig and go for a ride with me. take a look at those pics that Jermiah posted of my website. its a pretty cool place. what r u running?? i also have a snorkel so i usually try to take the hardest way out. but there is almost always another way out. mayb we can get some other guys offa here to go. i only have 4" all sprung lift(soon to also have 3" body), 35", 355cid,th350,14bff,d44. its alotta fun

    The Badlands are not kinda tight, they are very tight! If you care about your body at all don't take it there. There are a few wide trails but the obstacles are not that good on them. I went and ended up riding in my brothers 2002 j**p cause I didnt want to damage mine. Of course we ended up rolling and totaling it. Cool place but way to tight for us big trucks! (my opinion) /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif
