Cool, clean & convenient

Campgrounds in Teddy were closed due to Covid so had to find an alternative. This did the trick nicely. Much of the campground seems geared toward the horse crowd, but the small non horse tent loop was nicely set in a wooded area by a creek. Neat views of the bluffs all around.

It's all about the park

The campsites are perfectly fine. The park is stunning. 

Leave no trace.

Awesome

We stayed here while camping we liked it alot we will be back as it was a very nice campground.

Nice

We stayed 1 night passing through it was a nice trip. We will come back again.

Not sure what to say or rate

We pulled in at 830 pm and immediately noticed the few campers that were parked had no lights on. We could barely see where our spot was as There was no check in, you just go right to your spot. I typically like to check in and meet the people who run it to get a good layout and understand the vibe of the campground. We had site 12 I believe and we got a spooky vibe when we pulled up to it. It is literally 5 feet from a cabin that had huge window and a door that lead right to our driver side rv door. It just felt a little weird to have to hook up in the dark with no lights around us except our own headlamps and wonder if someone was inside watching us from their window. The spot was also very visible from the road so that also spooked us that people were driving by seeing us get ready next to a very dark cabin. Hind sight it was probably a fine campsite but I always say trust your instinct so we left. Something just felt slightly off, especially in the dark right next to a very long and dark cabin that anyone could have been in.

That being said, the ground was also fairly uneven and it is a very basic campground. It seems it was more for cabins and someone just decided to hookups and no picnic tables

I bet the views are nice and the people staying are probs great too! Again it just felt a little off so we left so I can’t honestly give this a fair rating

Good park

Great location right outside the park. Utilities all worked well. Beautiful walk down to the Little Missouri River. Train tracks nearby but they're not allowed to blow their horn through town, so all you hear is the low rumble as they go by, no big deal. Cons: sites are very close together, but that's pretty expected of a private FHU campground right outside a NP.

Badlands Camping

Pretty cool to camp in the badlands…

Good campground

Primitive campsites were secluded and surrounded by the trees. The trees were needed as there was a ton of wind that day. We were close to some of the horse corrals which was an added bonus as we don’t typically see that sort of things. Clean toilet/shower facilities.

Off the beaten path

We stayed at this park because the Theodore Roosevelt Nat'l Park North Unit campgrounds were closed for renovations. I mistakenly thought this park was close to the park, but it is actually a 90 minute drive. We had a reservation for 2 nights but only stayed one and moved to the CCC Campground to be closer to the park. The only real sites with a view are those that back-up to the Little Missouri River. All others are just looking at a prairie. This is also primarily a campground for horse people, which we are not. You do need to pay the additional North Dakota State Park fee if camping here.

Great amenities, right next to TRNP

Great campground overall! Sites are a little close together (especially for RVs) and the tent sites are on uneven, rocky ground half the time. We went in mid September so the season was over and it wasn’t too crowded but I could see being frustrated by lack of privacy during peak season. You can hear the train at night, not a big deal for me but it’s relatively frequent and noisy. That being said the amenities are great - camp store, private showers, clean bathrooms, even a few tent sites with water and electric. It’s right in a scenic little cove and if you walk a bit there’s rocky beach access right on the Little Missouri River. It’s also walkable to TRNP which is fantastic.
