WOW, that's an open ended question, Too hot? According to who, Or is it whom, but seeing that your from Ontario, and there's nearly NO shade there, I'd say yes.
Actually, the average temp in July is 89F, but I'm sure it can be quite a bit warmer.

We ave been there in July and it is fine. Only problem, and it really isn't a problem, is that during the mid day sun, all the animals are deep in the woods where you can't see them. Only ones that come out are the donkeys looking for a handout. You might also suffer a hail storm

The Badlands are one of my favorite NP. Go for it. Two or three days will do. Anyone can stand a little heat for that long.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

Badlands....A quick overnight on the eastern end then a drive west on 240 to Wall. Catch I90 over to Rapid City and and spend your time in the Black Hills where there is shade. We were there in late June early July and were wearing heated gear when we headed east.

The Black Hills are in the mountains, so it will be cooler than down by Hot Springs. the Badlands are a bit lower in elevation so it can get hot during the day and cold at night. Ive been there in July and August. Never had an issue with heat, that's not to say a heatwave wont hit when you plan to go!

If you use a preposition (like to, from, by, about, outside, against, etc.), then it's "whom".

Define "too hot". For me much above 70 and I start to get uncomfortable. My sister doesn't get "too hot" until about 80 or so. Dry heat IS very different than wet heat. The two times I've been there it's been very dry. AND very hot-over 100 degrees in July/August.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
