6 Parks near Wall, South Dakota
Aug 2016 - $27.00
Friendly helpful staff in an older park. No reservations and bike week at Sturgis and they had open spaces. Short walk to Wall Drug where we spent the first day. Lots to see in the area and staff was helpful in what to see where. Free WIFI, Showers, laundry room, pool, and small store on site. Good price for where it's located with easy access to sites and freeway. - Edd505

A no frills campground. Roads are gravel and dirt. I could not get connected to the wifi. The office had a good variety of camping equipment/supplies. Not much of food but there is a grocery almost within walking distance. Very easy on and off of interstate 90. If passing thru the area I would stay there again. - camper19709

This visit coincides with the 75th Anniversary of the Sturgis Bike Week - the place is 75 miles from Sturgis but it is filled up with the biker crowd - all of which are amongst the finest and most courteous folks one could ever meet. This is in the desert and the campground reflects this. Weeds - not grass - and they need to be mowed. Gravel roads and gravel sites - ours is a pull-through. Sewer sites are extra cost as is the cable TV. Free showers, although not exactly new, have high pressure and a super high volume amount of water - never ran out of hot water and I take long showers. Laundry washers take $1.50 and the dryers take $0.25 for six minutes - fed it $1.50 and the clothes came out dry. Easy on and easy off I-90 - use exit 109 to avoid city traffic. If in the area, I'd elect to stay here once again. - Jake67

Here for two nights visiting The Badlands and Wall Drug, it was quite satisfactory. Gravel and some mostly dried grass, level pull through sites with easy in-out and good utilities. They don't allow check in before 1:00 p.m. The heated pool was refreshing, but very small, dated, not perfectly clean, and mostly used by kids. We were lucky to find an hour on a hot afternoon and had it to ourselves for a cooling dip. The campground is within walking distance to Main Street, and right next to a train station which can be a little noisy, but didn't bother us, even with trains running. - MissMyGolden

This is just like many other RV parks where you are crammed in next to your neighbor and have no privacy. It was fine though for a 2 night stay to visit the Badlands and also Wall Drug. Nice to have access to full hookups for a couple of days also in between stays at nicer state parks. Verizon coverage was good here also. It's very easy in and out and close to the interstate. - Love2Camp777

Campground fills up most evenings. Office was pretty chaotic while we were trying to check in, multiple staff trying to check in multiple campers, phone ringing, making reservations, etc. Campground is central Wall, close to Wall Drug, very close to Badlands National Park and about an hour from Mount Rushmore. They have a nice big dog park to let your hounds run and play. Several times campers did not pick up after their dogs (shame on them!!) Campground is very close to train tracks and the first 3 nights we never heard a train go by - the 4th night made up for the previous 3 - :( 5:30 am, extended train whistle every 30-45 minutes there after. Not the campground's fault, but be aware when you stay there. - User2571

This was a great find for us, as we hit eastern South Dakota at the height of the Sturgis motorcycle rally (first week of August), and couldn't find an RV site anywhere. With a map and the Trailer Life Directory, we found this little campground in Wasta, which is a tiny, tiny little town right on Highway 90. Our first impression wasn't great, as the trees are all small and new, and the grass was turning brown from the continuing drought. But we were directed into spacious and level pull-through site, and the owners delivered an empty garbage can right to our site for our use. The campground is within sight of the railroad tracks, but from inside our coach, we didn't hear a single train during the 4 days we were there. Everything in the campground is in good repair, and the small store, bathrooms and showers were spotless. The RV park is next to a motel, and campground guests are allowed use of the motel's pool, which is right across a small street from the campground. We gave this "no frills" campground a higher rating than some other full service campgrounds I could mention, primarily because of the owners. They were helpful, friendly, outgoing and seemed genuinely happy and willing to do anything they could to help us enjoy our stay. They run a small store on site with a rock shop that's worth a look. As far as we're concerned, good people make a good campground more than all the amenities in the world. - cathyvee

Rest rooms and showers not clean. Landscape needs maintenance. Sits next to property where there are vacant, deteriorating cabins. Lots of road noise from interstate. No 30 amp service so we had to rent a 50a to 30a converter. - Globeville

Office staff not very knowledgable or flexible. Wanted to stay another night and he was going to charge a higher rate. No fluff with this park but they are trying to improve it. Easy place to get to and to visit Bad lands without paying the high rates. Place needs work but I would stay again. Need to get better office staff. - Luthersr

We were last here 3 years ago just after the corporation took over. I did not see much in the way of upgrades then and I still see little improvement. Previous reviews have made general comments about the park being fixed up but the never get specific. We had a gravel, FHU, 30 Amp pull-through that was not level. There is no cable TV but many sites are satellite friendly. Be sure to ask for a friendly site. Their 802.11 network was free with no password. We had no problems with staying connected or limited access which have been issues in most parks this trip. Most of the 15 or so FHU sites are 50 Amp and the remaining RV sites are only W&E. This park is not well laid out and the utilities are poorly located in many sites. There are also a couple dozen tent sites. I am not certain of the availability status of the cabins or the old motel. The café in the office building is still (previous reviewer said it would be open in July) not open. Others have said that the restrooms are old, but clean. I thought I smelled mold in the men's room and two of the shower stall were unusable - no light in one and a broken faucet handle in the other. The laundry room had 5 machines but only 2 were working - fortunately 1 washer and 1 dryer. The machines are currently free. The pool was again full of debris at the bottom but they did have one of those Roomba-like pool cleaners roaming the bottom. Except for the pool, there is nothing recreational in the park. The staffer who checked us in was friendly and helpful. I saw no sign of recycling. I just wish the new owners (Forever Resorts) were making the effort and investment in this park that some others seem to think they are. At least it was fairly cheap. - Jerry S

Camping in the Badlands was a unique experience. The views are spectacular. The campground offers electric only. The sites are pull offs from the main road. We had a reservation and so were able to obtain a site large enough for our fifth wheel and truck. The site was reasonably level. The electric was well placed and functioned as expected. Each site has a picnic table and a wind screen. We checked in at the hotel and were directed to our site. The hotel could use better signage for RV parking while checking in. - 15243

We were looking for a campground that would be convenient to visit Badlands National Park. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We camped here on a weeknight.
This is a perfect spot from which to tour the Badlands. Agree with other posts: paved 'pull-over' sites are different as are having the door of the RV open onto a wide spot on the road. And sites at first appear to be arrayed in a large field without shade. Each site has picnic table with a shelter providing shade. Some have electric. There are water spigots and a dump station. There is no wifi. Verizon and ATT coverage is ok.
All sites have great views. We believe the gorgeous view of the Badlands and convenience of being so close to the park far outweigh the funkiness of the unusual arrangement of the sites. Reservations can be made. For walk-ins, they begin assigning sites at 2pm when busy. - dsvt

I think my exceptionally high rating for this campground was because of the views we saw each morning when we went outside. This National Park has to be one of my all-time favorites and it was great to be able to stay in the campground and see the park first-hand. When we originally booked the dates and site, the on-line map makes it look like a typical campground with the individual sites radiating off of the campground roads. However, the majority of the sites are on and parallel to the main road, a set-up that I have never seen before. In fact it reminded me of pictures of the way wagon trains in the old west would circle together at night for safety. At first I was a little concerned as our 40 inch slide was extended into the actual roadway, but as the majority of campers were back at their sites before dark, it never turned out to be a problem. The campground was full on the nights we were there and it was peacefully quiet. One morning we got up before sunrise to see the sun coming up on the Badlands, and I was embarrassed by the noise our truck made when I started it to head to one of the overlooks. Because the campground is on a plain there is always wind, so if you are tenting, be prepared with plenty of stakes to hold it down. It took four of us to help hold a neighbors tent while they were trying to secure it. If we come back to the Badlands, Cedar Pass would be our only choice. - Love To Travel 2

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! - konehd

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. - camper19709

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. - Bosley08
