Activities/Attractions: Circle View Guest Ranch is where you can enjoy the views, have a good night's sleep and see a real Old West ranch in operation. Don't miss your opportunity to stay in the heart of the Badlands and make your vacation unique. It’s only at Circle View where you can experience both the Badlands National Park and the wide-open prairie of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation at the same time.

Located just 5 miles from our Guest Ranch in southwestern South Dakota, Badlands National Park consists of nearly 244,000 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with the largest, protected mixed grass prairie in the United States.

The Badlands Wilderness Area is made up of 64,000 acres and is the site of the reintroduction of the black-footed ferret, the most endangered land mammal in North America. The Stronghold Unit is co-managed with the Oglala Sioux Tribe and includes sites of 1890s Ghost Dances. Our ranch sits right where these two wonders meet and there’s no better view than atop our 200 foot butte where the guest house sits! We are fortunate to be in an absolutely stunning area of the United States, rich with history and traditions.

This area of southwestern South Dakota offers a great variety of area attractions. Some are right next-door and others are easily accessible for day trips.
