In the Prairie and ponderosas

This is a great campground within the wind Cave national Park. It has both tent and RV parking. The RV parking is somewhat limited and mostly the RVs park along the road. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire ring and the bathrooms have running water and flushing toilets during the warm seasons. There are no showers available. The campground is in the middle of the national park and just outside of the campground there are hiking trails everywhere. You will see herds of Buffalo and herds of deer everywhere. The cave was not accessible due to a mechanical problem with the elevator. It has been an ongoing issue and I would check the website before you go. Not a big loss to see the cave as the hiking was fantastic

Close to Mt Rushmore

This is a nice small campground located just behind Mount Rushmore. It is on a very pretty lake and is divided into an RV section and a tent section for camping. There are volt toilets available and the campground has a trail around the lake.

The elevation is about 6000 feet so it can get cold there and you may have some elevation sickness.

Camping on the edge

This is a dispersed BLM area. It is easy to locate just take the hwy from Wall SD 5.5 miles toward the Badlands Park entrance. When you see the cell towers to onto the dirt road on the left.

I camped there on a Sunday night in September and there were lots of other campers there already at 2 pm. The area filled up as the day went on. See the pic that I added.

This is a beautiful spot and it was good to connect with the other campers. There are big horn sheep herds that will climb the walls and walk among the campers to graze on the flatland grass in the mornings.

Nice little park

This is a nice little park in southern Illinois. It is surrounded by cornfields, however the park is wooded. The park surrounds a very pretty lake and I have attached a picture.

The host was very nice and helpful. The bathhouse was clean and had hot water for the showers.
