Nice Forest Service Campgroumd

Small campground most sites are private the vault toilets were very clean and the campground was quiet. Easy access and not far from Buffalo SD for gas and or other supplies. Very pretty scenery. We used it as a stop over on the way to the black hills and will do so for future trips

Quiet and beautiful

We stayed Wednesday and Thursday nights before the 4th of July. It's a beautiful, well kept no fee campground. A not difficult path leads you upward to a beautiful view of The Castles formation in the Slim Buttes. We will stay here again.

nice & quiet

city park with electric 20/30 amp, water, dump station, trash, bbq grills in park, picnic tables at some sites, sites are around 40’ back in sites from a paved road, pay at steel pipe on corner of road/playground, pretty nice for $10! also full bars Verizon!!

Clean

Be ready to dry camp

Lots of shoreline, good weekend spot

Well maintained electric hookup sites along the shore. Cabins also available. Playground and a couple beaches around the area. A popular boating reservoir.

Solitude with a view

Great little campground nestled in the pines of the Slim Buttes. Views of more buttes and the prairie to the west with certain spots. Area is gorgeous in one of the most remote areas of SD. Can drive to campging spots a fair distance in to be away from the highway, although the traffic is almost nonexistant.

Some trails to the north of Highway 20 and on the south end of Highway 79 that can take you above and along the cliffs of the buttes with some more spectacular views.

Camping spots are clean, mowed and have a small fire pit.

Quite spot, lots of room

Really liked this free spot a few miles east of the main hwy. Great if you are traveling to the Badlands from the north. Lots of spacious sites here with established fire pits and several toilets. Coyotes serenaded us throughout the night!
