Terry Badlands WSA

Antelope Creek

Values

The Antelope Creek WSA is a river breaks topography with steep, highly eroded coulees formed by tributaries that drop toward the Missouri River.  The Missouri River cut deeply into soft shales and sandstones forming numerous steep hills and deep coulees of sparsely vegetated exposed rock.  Vegetation includes sagebrush, greasewood, and short prairie grasses.  Juniper, ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine, Douglas fir and cottonwood grow along the coulees.  This WSA offers outstanding opportunities for solitude and provides a diversity of primitive recreational opportunities such as hiking, photography, hunting, and rock climbing. The area is rich in historical significance, including Kid Curry's outlaw hideaway.
