Fantastic location. Good showers. Lots of game. Laundromat in Wall, clean easy inexpensive. Lodge restaurant is a DUMP do not even think about it. The area is fascinating. Door hike good but go early to avoid the busses. Windy so nail your tent down well

It is always a privilege to camp within an amazing national park such as Badlands, but don't expect all the perks & comforts of campgrounds you may have visited on the way. But here you are surrounded by the unique peaks and mounds and are literally minutes from spectacular trails in the heart of the park. How very special to go to sleep & wake up to that, especially on a clear night with a million stars overhead. However- know before you go- not all sites have electricity, no water hook-ups, of course no sewer. (There is a place you can fill your tank as well as a dump station.) And if you have an RV, you do not back in, but sort of parallel park on the side of the loop road. Your door may be opening out directly onto the road. And if you have a large rig, you may not be able to fit it in. Also, due to the close proximity to the valuable and fragile grasslands and the unrelenting wind, absolutely no fires are permitted, not even charcoal grills. That's the best policy- but if tent camping, plan your menu accordingly. RV-ers can always cook inside, no problem. Also note- showers are coin operated so don't forget to have your quarters ready! Rest rooms get a lot of use and need a bit of an update. Picnic tables are shaded, but there are few trees and sites are very close together and offer little privacy, especially for tent campers. Now having said all that, we still loved our time there. Abundant birds, the sky, the fresh air, silent deer wandering through, the stars, and most of all the scenery 360 degrees around you- it's incomparable!

This was a basic campsite. There were flush toilets and hot water, always a big plus to any tent campers. During our 2-day stay, everyone in the surrounding area went to bed before 9PM and started getting up/packing up from 4:30 AM onward. They all spoke in loud voices ("Are we mixing the dirty laundry?" one woman asked only feet from where I was trying to sleep,) and had either eaten breakfast or left by the time we rolled out of our tents at 6:00 AM. One family had two small children, one of which was crying continuously while she sat drinking coffee, like he had been awakened far too early and needed a nap. We had learned to double-secure the tents by then, which was a good thing at this exposed campsite without any trees or means of a wind-break. A storm went through the first night, with strong winds. We kept both the side flaps of the tents halfway open to create airflow, which worked really well. Definitely hard ground, but we had good quality pads beneath our sleeping bags. The campsite is right at the entrance to the park. We didn't hear any traffic noise, however.

Perfect Campground! We loved our stay and we will be back. It was beautiful and so peaceful. It is a bit odd to pull in and camp off to the side but you get used to it. The only down side is the restrooms need help. They are very sad. The star talk was great too! Get all groceries and gas before heading in the little store do not have much at all.

We stayed at this park because it was located within the Badlands National Park. We arrived quite close to 6pm, and the ranger on duty pointed us to our spot. My friend had obtained the very last spot in the park at least two months earlier. When she booked it, she was told the RV would fit. However, upon arrival, it looked quite tight. The park attendant on duty let us park in the overflow area. There were no hookups, but we were able to get water and dump. The weather wasn't really cooperating ... it was cold and rainy, but we still had a great time. I loved the scenery. The park attendant was really nice.
