Badlands National Park Transportation: 4 reviews and 5 photos
Lots of parking space in one of the Overlooks
We rented a small Nissan Vespa for our trip from Saskatchewan to South Dakota, and it served our needs quite well - other than the tendency to require quite a few stops for fuel. That was due to a combination of having a relatively small fuel tank and not knowing whether there would be any open gasoline stations in the small and sparse communities spread out across the Great Plains as we drove south.
The car did not have cruise control for the long stretches of highway with little traffic but I didn't seem to have too much trouble holding it at a steady 110-kph (except when it encountered a serious climb!). The Vespa was just fine for driving the loop road in Badlands NP, but there were also large motor homes enjoying the scenery without any problems. Overall, our little car managed to average 12.7 km/litre or 36 mpg (30 miles per US gallon) for our cumulative driving distance of 2300-km. Rental cost from the National car rental agency in Regina, Saskatchewan was C$69 (US$65) for each of the four days we used it, including the cost of full insurance coverage.
