To the Sioux Indians, Ma-ko-shi-ka meant bad earth or bad land. Today, as Montana’s largest state park, the pine and juniper studded badland formations house the fossil remains of such dinosaurs as tyrannosaurus and triceratops. You’ll find a visitor center at the park entrance with exhibits explaining the site’s geologic, fossil, and prehistoric stories. Roads and hiking trails let you explore the park’s whimsical badlands landscape. Or try out the campground and the park’s folf (frisbee golf) course.
