“Wonderful spot so close to the Badlands! ”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2017

Overall Rating

The only drawback to this spot is the long, unpaved road leading to the campgrounds. But we have definitely driven on a lot worse! Otherwise the perfect spot for free camping close to the National Park. So neat to see Bison roaming the grounds! Come early, especially towards the weekend. It’s not a big place and mostly filled up... more

“Awesome! Bumpy long road to get there, but worth the loose car parts!”

Reviewed Aug 09, 2017

Overall Rating

Open plains camping, clean put toilets, picnic tables, roaming bison, coyotes howling at night, Hills to climb, quiet campers, we had a great time! The road back is 11 miles and bumpy but the views are worth the wear and tear on your rig! Enjoy staying here! You won't forget it!

“Quiet and Beautiful”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Even on Memorial Day weekend, when this camp was fairly full, there was a great calm over the camp. It's nestled on the edge of the Badlands (and, FYI, if you're using Google Maps coming east on I-90, it'll take you down south of Wall, SD before bringing you into camp). Toilets were clean, people were friendly. I wish we had brought so... more

Overall Rating

We rolled in around 3 on Memorial Day weekend. Lots of people there, & more showed up later. Was pretty orderly, and folks were quiet. A few bison roamed around the edges of the camp, which was pretty cool. Definitely plan on coming back.

Road in/out was a little bumpy. Drive carefully.

I arrived here on Nov, 8th 2016. The day of the Presidential election. All around the country and indeed, the world, society was being electrified by the current pulsing through the digi-sphere. The noise must have been unbearable. But here I was, all by my lonesome, except for the giant bull bison laying in one of the camp sites 300 f... more

“Awesome grassland views”

What a cool little campground. Considering it is 12 miles down a washboard gravel road, this place fills up each afternoon (only to completely clear out by 9am the next morning). Mostly tent campers, but by evening what little space there is for RVs can be taken. Not much of a cell signal unless you have a booster. We got a few bars... more

So...I was more than thrilled with this spot as we got to encounter wildlife in its rarest form, Bison, Prairie Dogs, White Tale Deer, and Coyote!. The sunsets are amazing and so are the endless views. This place can get a lot of tent campers at night but everyone has the same intentions. By far the coolest place I've ever stayed! ... more

This is the second time that I've stayed at this Campground, and it remains as one of my favorite National Park campgrounds. This is a primitive, dry campground. There are vault toilets, picnic tables, and trash service, but that's it. Make sure you have all of the water and power you need for your planned stay. There's not actua... more
