It is a very nice area. Be aware the area can get really windy so if you are tent camping. Check NOAA weather to get accurate wind forecast. The area is very open. It 12 miles of the road that goes to Wall, SD. There are bighorn sheep on the first 2 or 3 miles and then there is prairie... More

We loved Sage Creek! Most campers have small tents and we fit right in. The Bison came for a visit during the evening, its their territory so be careful where you step! Great scenery, quiet neighbours, clean outhouses.What more do you want for free! Bring water and plan meals that don't require a firepit.

Our experience here was very windy! I highly recommend a hard covered trailer/camper/truck. We slept in our Honda Element. On one particularity windy night, a family of 5 packed up their tent and drove off at 930pm. The other tent campers toughed it out, but I'm sure it was not a good night's sleep. Amenities were adequate and clean. Pay... More

Sage Creek was so much fun even just for a night. I prefer rugged outback camping and my wife prefers KOA with clean bathrooms and a feeling of security. The pit toilets were indeed very female friendly, the other campers were very friendly and they were all out there for the same reasons as us...beautiful views of the surrounding grasslands,... More

Nice campground - free - first come, first serve. I like this place because it is out in the middle of nowhere - far from Wall and in a more remote part of Badlands National Park. No water, pit toilets only. It is southwest of Wall a ways. Make sure you have a good tent. Every time I go tenting... More

We stayed here our first night in the park. No water so be sure to bring your own. The cleanest pit toilets I've ever seen in my life, and I've seen many. I'm very much not a fan of pit toilets, but these were absolutely fine. One on each side of the area. It was the first week in June... More

This is a wonderful, no-frills camping spot. Please be aware, there is no water. I camped there on a hot August day, but thanks to a cooler of cold brew I made it out alive... Sage Creek is about 15 miles SSW of Wall, SD and about as far from tourist schlock as you can get. No electric, no water,... More
