Looking for a campground close to the Badlands, we came across this little gem! Very nice host and very nice sites. We had full hook-ups on a gravel site with some grass and trees. Awesome views of the Badlands. Due to the date (October) we were the only ones there except for a few (maybe 6) permanent residents. We were very pleased with our stay and would return if in the area. We did not use the facilities so no comment on them. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park sets at the Interior entrance to Badlands park one mile from visitors center. Sites were mostly open with little shade. Wonderful view of mountains. Has above ground pool that was very refreshing, and an adequate C store. Sites were gravel but level. Older 30 amp service, all hook ups were functional. We stayed two nights and would stay again. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Choose this park due to the fact it is so close to the Badlands. The utilities are laid out strangely and you need to check before pulling in as they could be on the wrong side. The scenery makes up for any short comings. Beautiful! We did experience low voltage at 104 volts but that really was on us as we moved to a full hook up site but only had a 30 amp service. We should have stayed on the 50 amp water and electric site. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The place is dirty and dusty and when we went it was muddy. But they have a nice pool and the location is A++. They are only minutes away from from many of the trails in the Badlands. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Minuteman Missile National Monument and Wall Drug are fairly close by.

Campground near the Badlands very near main gate. It rained every night of our stay and site was muddy with standing water. We thought we were getting full hookups but only 30A sites have full hookups, all 50 amp sites did not have sewer connections which made our stay inconvenient having to use dump station. AT&T internet runs very slow and campground connection is not any better. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed for a month at this campground. Issues: during our stay was, the laundry room plenty of washers, but only one dryer, and it didn't function well. Campground WIFI very slow, not sure, you could even connect.

Otherwise the owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. They are very quick in making repairs that happen to occur, due to camper error. This campground is clean, safe and quiet. The majority of camper sites are 30 amp. Water and sewer locations are set up differently per site. Be sure to have extra hoses and electrical cords to reach if need be for full hook up sites.

There is also cabins, hotel rooms, tent camping areas, and Tee-Pees. Swimming pool is small but always clean.

Campground is 3 miles from the Badlands National Park, and has great views, of the park. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Small grocery store in Interior. Recommend driving to Kadoka, or Wall for better choices.

Things to do:

Badlands National park.

Haunted cemetery in Interior old grave stones dating back to 1800's

Dining out:

Rv park serves breakfast from 7 to 9 $7.00

Inside the National park, is a restaurant.

Interior has bar type food at the Wagon wheel bar and grill.

Good Sam rate. New owners are great. The CG is in the Badlands but outside the National Park. Not far through the park to reach I-90. One reason the rating is a little low is the issue with stanchion power when we tried to set up. My EMS wouldn't connect because of fluctuating voltage on the first stanchion. The second I tried did work but we had to be wise with appliances and accessories or trip the EMS with a low voltage error. The CG is clean, there are wind shelters on some of the sites (yes, the wind does blow here). The first night we had gusts to 35 MPH for about an hour before sunset. Easy access to Badlands National Park and worth the effort. We experienced traffic of a different nature this week since Sturgis Rally began 8-1 and runs through 8-9. SD-34 is the historic Highway to Sturgis and tens of thousands of bikers use the route...kind of fun to watch. In case you do get a site without sewer there is a dump station. The swimming pool is an above ground set up but the owners keep is clean. There is a restaurant and a motel on the grounds and plenty of room for camping and RVing. Sites are rough, dirt and gravel and there are some shade trees and plenty of room between sites. Laundry facility is clean and inexpensive. Most sites also have fire rings. We enjoyed our stay here and will return if through the area. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here a few years ago and wanted to see if the new owners have made any improvements. We had a level, gravel, full hookup pull-through site. There were maybe 20 other RVs in the park and some of them appeared to be extended stay customers. There is no cable TV but most sites appear to be satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi network was fine for us but that may be because the motel was almost empty and the park only 1/3 full. The new owners know that the electrical system needs to be updated, but I'm not sure they realize how many other problems this park has. Only 23 sites are full hookup and only one of those is 50 amp. There are about 20 W&E with some of them 50 and some 30 amp. The rest of the sites are no hookups or tent sites. Even the full hookup sites are a problem. While most of the sites in our row of 12 FHU, 30 amp sites had their own sewer on the driver's side, the W&E was shared every other site. So half the sites had the W&E on the passenger side of the site. The bathrooms are OK but the showers are very small. The laundry is small and cheap. I thought that the restaurant was just closed for the season but another customer told me that it is not open at all as of right now. The new owners have a lot of work to do to get this place up to par. The view of the Badlands to the north is fantastic. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park; lots just long enough. Level. Some lots have sewer, some don't. Lot 1 is the "Wi-Fi" lot. Only 3 channels on antenna. No cable. Facilities worked well. Friendly owners. Badlands right out window, but a short drive will take you even deeper into them. Some road noise from the highway, but in a solid sided camper it's not all that noticeable. The town of Interior has 67 residents and appears to be a town that "was". Campground is for sale. We would stay here again. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are close together and two spaces share electricity and water hook ups. Staff friendly. Great views of the Badlands. Ok for a night or two. The town is very, very small and there is only a gas station, bar/grill, post office, and a small food/convenience store. The closest drug store is 30 miles through the park to Wall Drugs. The campground is for sale. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very basic RV park, but suited our needs. Level gravel sites, full hookups. Owners very friendly and helpful. Dog friendly and the park has the Badlands in its sights, so it provided some beautiful sunrise and sunset photos. If you are not looking for lots of amenities, then this park will suit you well. The Internet access was spotty, but we have a "hotspot" so it did not matter to us. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Not a bad campground, but needs updating. Nice clean, warm showers but again needs updating. Very friendly. We stayed for a week and had a lot of fun there. Unfortunately, it's for sale. No telling what it will be like when new owners take over. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is very convenient to the Badlands National Park, just off Hwy 44, and maps and info are available in the office. Friendly staff. Some picnic tables needed upgrading. Sites are fairly closely spaced but pull-through, so convenient. Breakfast is available at the park. The camping rate is better than the one in the park, and it was electric only. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nothing fancy but it works for the area. Gravel sites are level and gravel roads are in good condition. Office and wait staff at the restaurant are very helpful and friendly. Office staff offered lots of information about activities at the National Park. We had no cell service for Verizon, which is extremely unusual, but did manage slow internet service with our air card on our router with an antenna. Full hookups were nice, as well as the pull through, since we only stayed one night. Easy to walk the dog on the perimeter of the park. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is alright for being very close to the Badlands, bathroom and showers were clean. Down side, no TV or Wi-Fi reception. But the upside, the manager was fantastic. We had a mechanical problem with our truck. I asked the manager if he knew where the closest Ford dealer was, he knew the the number off the top of his head. Said they are good people and will take care of you. I called them and they said to get the truck to them and they would get me in asap, so I told the manager what they said, I had booked for three nights, and had only been there one night, he said no problem, get your receipt and he would refund my other nights for me, WOW! No hassle, I couldn't hardly believe my ears. If I do go back to the Badlands, I would stay there again. Was treated very honest, something that doesn't happen often enough. And the Ford dealer, McKey, they were great also. Got me fixed and am on my way to Alaska. We camped at Badlands Motel & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
