We made the detour out to Devils Tower and were pleasantly surprised. We did not expect to stay here but the beauty of the area and the quaintness of the campground changed our mind. We decided to make a stay out of it and are glad that we did. We enjoyed the Prairie Dogs right off the campground and the trail that leaves the campground up and around the tower is perfect for hiking and running. The river adds some beauty and tranquility to the area. We woke up in the morning to many songbirds and an amazing view of the tower. We will be back here again.
The National Park has a campgrounds at the foot of the mountain, water, bathrooms, picnic tables and fire rings provided. The sites are close together and the area is flat, many RV's so I think there were hook ups. The evening program provided by Park Volunteer rangers was interesting and told us the name was misinterpreted and actually was Great Bear Lodge in Sioux. The view of the tower from the campsite was mesmerizing and the storm with thunder and lighting kept me out of my tent long into the night.
When we got there it was about to pour, but we hiked the mounument trail and loved the views! It was a beautiful place to be and to take our kids.
Great view of the tower, clean campsites and bathrooms! No showers but bathrooms have flushing toilets and sinks in the campground. Excellent picnic area with lots of tables and shade. Evening entertainment was also a huge hit! Friday night we participated in star gazing put on by the Park Rangers and it was out of this world, seriously try to plan your trip to include this, we were told it was offered every two weeks! Saturday night there was story telling and music at the amphitheater! Definitely check out the programs offered by the Park it will make your stay that much more memorable!
Perfect for getting to many of the outdoor recreation spots in this area!
Pulled up right at dusk and found numerous spots open. Nice little affordable ($22) campground with clean bathrooms, flush toilets, and a view of Devil's tower. Not a lot of privacy or room between the spots, but lots of huge old oak trees and soft grass. Had some annoying climbers up at 5am making noise getting ready, but overall a very pleasant spot and I'd definitely go back.
We stopped here on our way to North Dakota. Nice little campground with picnic tables, fire pits, and public toilets which were clean. Lots of shady spots. No reservations so it's first come, first served. No hook-ups for RVs. Very close to Devil's Tower National Monument so the view is amazing! Avoid the first week in August as that's when thousands of motorcyclists descend upon Sturgis.
