There is plenty of mud at the Badlands. It is not all sand. Orange is terrible after some rain. Green has mud in the woods. Teh sand is in the quarry, dunes and the area immediately around those two. Otherwise, there is dirt and mud.

As for the flag, they require a flag to be 2' above the vehicle. Most use a CB antenna. Any orange/red fabric should be ok.

That being said, there are new owners since I have been there last, so the flag rule may have changed. I doubt it though.

QFT on the descriptions. And for the flag rule just have one with you. I saw a bunch of FJs with window clip on flags (that barely cleared the roofline) so I took mine off and ran trouble free for 2 days in and out of the entrance. Its become more of another thing they can charge you for instead of a safety measure. Grab a bike flag for $5 from Walmart and stick it in the back of your rig. If they give you any trouble just take it out (but I'm sure they wont).



Heres some Badlands mud.

what kind of quad are you taking up there? I was up there on my banshee a couple weeks ago, its hit and miss with the crown. I have been down there a few times this year and sometimes it is really busy and others not at all! I actually like when there are more people. It gets boring after a few times being there though so I just watch some of the others go through the tubes and in the mud holes. If its your first time there you will have a blast!
