While we were in the area we checked out all the campgrounds and felt this one gives the most bang for the buck. The rate was $30 and change with GS, AAA, and FMCA discounts available. The roads and sites are gravel. The pull throughs are some of the longest ones we've come across in our travels. The host are very nice and the campground store has a nice stock of basics. If you don't mind canned foods the little store in town is well stocked. Not much in the way of fresh veggies. The showers were old, very clean, with good hot water and ok pressure. We couldn't get their wifi to work very well and used our Verizion MiFI. Some one mentioned shade shelters in an earlier post, they were not writing about this place. Shade is at a premium with only a few trees large enough to provide minimum shade. They have a nice little pool that's not heated and we didn't use because the weather changed and got cold. We had a 30 amp site and had no problems with the power. The laundry was handy and clean. If we are in the area again we'll stay here again. We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly with level sites. Laundry and wifi was good. Showers were old so didn't use. Swimming pool was small so didn't use. Beautiful view of Badlands from campground. No dog park but lots of fields to walk dog. Badlands are very beautiful and campground is a mile past the entrance. Fee to enter national park but free with America the Beautiful senior pass. We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

You should stock up first because no grocery store nearby. The scenic view is 28 miles to Wall but it is worth the drive.

Good place to stay when visiting the Badlands NP. You have great views of the southern entrance to the Badlands. Water pressure was around 42 psi during our stay. We did have electrical issues with our 50 amp service. Checked voltage when setting up, had 116v on leg one and 117v on leg two of our 50 amp service. About the time the campground was getting full for the night we started have low voltage (103v) problems on leg one. Our PMS system shutdown power a couple of times in just a few minutes. We turned off all the ACs and power stabilized around 108v. When I got up the next morning I checked out the power box. The outlet had failed and burnt our 50 amp plug. I contacted the campground and someone came right over and looked at the outlet. The outlet from the outside appeared normal, but on close inspection it looked like someone had driven off without disconnecting their power cord. Leg one had been damaged internally. The connection was ok for a voltage check, but when loaded with our ACs it fried our power plug. Maintenance replaced the outlet and I replaced the plug on our power cable. Fortunately the park a few miles from here had a plug. Sure beat driving about 160 miles round trip into Rapid City. The folks work here very helpful. The maintenance man loaned me a hacksaw to cut my plug off and came back after I had everything hooked back up to check voltages. Late in the afternoon power was still low hovering around 108v on leg one and 114v on leg two. Low but acceptable. We did have a few power failures during a rain storm. Check power outlets closely before hooking up. Check voltages after hooking up with a load applied. As from previous reviews, electrical power seems to be an issue here. Pool was closed. Sign at pool stated high chemical content, but the pool was completely empty of water during our visit. The bath house was clean but very dated. It has the appearance of a ho-hum DIY project done years ago. Plywood stalls and doors etc. We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

Get groceries before you arrive here. There is one small grocery store in town. We didn't use it. But suspect limited selection and typically high prices.

This is the closest campground to Badlands National Park (without actually staying in the park). You can actually see the in-park campground from this one. For $30 in the park, you get electric hookups only, vs. full hookups here, a larger spot with a picnic table, a pool (in season), laundry facilities, a restaurant, and a playground area. It's a no-brainer! The host was very friendly and even gave us a refund when we had to leave a day early (very much appreciated!). There is a nice view of the Badlands from the park, and the sites are gravel but fairly level. All in all, a nice place. We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

There's really no close shopping or gas here, so be sure to be well stocked before you enter the Badlands. There is a very small "grocery" store in Interior, but you probably wouldn't want to depend on it.

this CG could use some TLC but we enjoyed our stay.

Clean but dated restrooms with a pool (did not use). Sites are gravel with some grass and a few trees. Price includes elec, water and good wifi. Originally planned to stay at the national park CG nearby, but no site avail. Very glad we found this CG, very close to the Badlands. We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It was hot when we stayed here. Site was said to be 30 amp; it was not. The electrical pedestal was shared with RV next door. As long as another RV was plugged in, we could not run an air conditioner. The power would go off for a few seconds/minutes, and then repeat. The neighbor had same problem.

Complaint to management resulted in him coming to site, looking at electrical pedestal, and proclaiming: "Every thing was alright, it must be a problem in your RV."

Hooking up at next campground showed this to be incorrect. WiFi, although advertised, could not be connected to, even though we were the second nearest RV to the office. We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is a little rough around the edges. It has all the amenities but all of them are well worn. I did look at the bath/shower house. It was usable but nothing special and looked very old. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The pool is above ground. I did not use it but the kids seemed to be having fun. The hookups were a little strange. Quite a few of them were shared hookups meaning your water and electric was on the passenger side of your rig. So make sure you have extra water hose and electric cord. All the sites were very level. A great base for sightseeing the area. I would stay there again. We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice older park. Power was a little flakey but we were moved to another site with good 50A. Gravel sites that were pretty level, easy in / out for our 40' motorhome

Wifi is weak, but usable. Great pancakes for breakfast!

Closest commercial park to the Badlands.

We'd stay there again! We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

Badlands National Park is good for a day only. You might want to go to the old Minuteman missile sites (free). Wall Drug nearby. Get fuel when you first get off of Interstate. Nice store. Not much going on in Interior.

Free spotty WiFi, no tv reception on the antenna. We where camping when it was very quiet, so we had great views on the Badlands. Owners living on the property and are friendly and helpful. Off season you can pick your own site. Strange hookups but it worked well. They are improving the park. Close at the entrance of the National Park. We will be back.

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 Interior 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.

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 Interior 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 Interior Motel & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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 Interior Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.
