Stayed for a night

Found this spot while heading north and it was great for a night. There are a couple picnic tables around in a field and you’re right along the lake which had a beautiful sunset. You are allowed to stay up to seven nights and it is free. There are two little shelter areas & a playground but it…

So peaceful

Such a quiet campground! There looks to be about 10 official spots? 6 with gravel back ins. There is 1 pull through spot. The official spots have a metal fire ring and picnic table. There are 4 vault toilets spaced out throughout the campground which is nice! They aren’t being cleaned at this time…

Very friendly

Tent camped here before going to hike Whites Butte. The bath/shower houses are very nice!! Mo's Bunker Bar is right on site. The owner dropped off freshly picked apples to our site.

Remote, scenic site

Lovely spot that is little visited but beautiful. The sites are in a protected shallow valley with good shade. They are fairly private. Great access to the Columnar Junipers hike and bluffs for beautiful overlook of this part of the Little Missouri National Grassland.

  • View of the valley from the Columnar Junipers hike. The campsite is in a similar valley to the right of this photo.

What a fund

Using this app I came across this Campground. I cannot believe it was not when we got here at 1:30. We had our pick of a dozen sites. There is no one else within 1/3 of a mile.

There is around 7 miles of gravel road to go up. But we were on street motorcycles and had no problem.

Note the…

Burning Coal Vein

Fun little place to camp, and fun little hike to the Butte, or hop on the Maah Da Hey Trail and hike for miles.

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

Excellently maintained campground and great for boon-docking

This is one of the best National Forest campgrounds that we have been to. All of the 8 sites are very spread out and unique on their own. There is an abundance of wild life along with some great bluff views. The campground is very well maintained and well cared for. There are 2 vault toilets and…

Pretty sketchy to find but very nice and the forest around is sweet. While I was here in May I saw deer and elk. Stayed here twice, once in May when there were no other visitors and once in August when there were only a few others.

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.

this is back to nature at it's finest!

If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. It is remote, secluded, and beautiful. If you are looking for peace and quiet, it's definitely available here! There isn't "much" to do...if you're looking for swimming pools, golf courses, yada yada...but if you just want to camp in one of…

A parking lot at a City Park

We parked a long the wedge of the grass under the trees. A lot of flies. There is a dump and water! Close to town to do laundry and get a bite to eat.
