Red Shirt, SD

Oglala Lakota County, SD Land for Sale

Red Shirt, SD | 130.96 +/- ACRES

The Badlands Overlook property is a 130 acre piece lying on the western edge of the notorious South Dakota Badlands National Park. The park was initiated in 1922 and derived its name from the Lakota tribes translation of mako sica, which has the literal translation of “bad lands”, likely because the terrain proves difficult in travel and generally does not produce much for forage or wildlife. Though the bad lands are not highly productive, they have remained virtually untouched. Their rippling ridge tops, deep ridge cervices, and flat-topped plateaus leave an onlooker spell bound and create a habitat where only the strong survive. Come and enjoy western South Dakota where the wild things are and the freedom still rings true to those who live for the pursuit.


The Badlands Overlook is located in Ogalala Lakota County, along BIA 41 south of Red Shirt 6 miles. The property is situated between the Black Hills to the west and Badlands National Park to the east and enjoys expansive views of both!


The Badlands Overlook lends itself to many local attractions and experiences. The close town of Hermosa is a short 25 miles away and boasts the local school, senior center, and several dining options. Once dubbed the “Hub to History and Adventure”, Hermosa is centrally located to many of South Dakota’s greatest sights. Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Badlands National Park, and Rushmore Cave are all just a short drive. Indulge yourself in the local Native American Sioux Tribe history at Crazy Horse Memorial.

The second largest city in South Dakota, Rapid City, is within an hour drive and furnishes a plethora of shopping, fine and casual dining and features the local regional airport.

Bordering the Badlands National Park, the Badlands Overlook gives way for beautiful 360-degree views with limitless State attractions available at your fingertips.
