The Homestead Overlook (as its name suggests) is an excellent overlook to glimpse the surrounding prairie and farmlands in the Badlands. The beauty of the White River Valley lies before you, so pause and absorb the scenery. Homesteaders traveled along the White River Valley in the early 1900s. They mostly lived in tents and sod houses, but there's not much here today. This overlook is located along the Badlands Loop Road on Hwy 240. A short wheelchair-accessible boardwalk is on site.
