This newly remodeled campground is a favorite among Maah Daah Hey Trail users.
A cheaper alternative to TRNP’s Juniper Campground. This campground offers beautiful panoramic views of the North Dakota Badlands. Additionally, you can access the Maah Daah Hey Trail and explore the Badlands from here. The campground is well kept and is typically pretty quiet. There are no showers, but there is toilets and accessible drinking water.
We spent two nights at this campground in early October. We had it nearly to ourselves.
A couple things to note:
October can be cold! It got down below freezing in the first week of October.
It gets windy. There's a site in the B loop that offers a good amount of protection from wind from most directions.
The Maah Daah Hey and Long X trails start at this campground. We did a great 11ish mile mountain bike loop by heading up Maah Daah Hey and down Long X.
There's a well here, but the water looked pretty brown. We boiled it.
Great site to start your hike or ride on the fantastic MaahDaahHey trail.
