We were driving west and needed a campsite prior to visiting the Badlands. Circle 10 is right off I-90 at the entrance to the Badlands. We only stayed one night and it fit our needs. The person working the front desk was very nice. Our campsite was clean. The bathrooms were clean. No frills and not very scenic; some noise... More

We stayed 2 nights in a pull-thru, full hookup site with 50 amps. This park is owned by Forever Resorts, a company who owns lodges and campgrounds around the country near national parks. Convenient in/out from I-90, about a mile from the Minuteman Missile visitor center and less than 10 miles from Badlands National Park entrance. We didn't hear highway... More

Just curious, how do all the bad revirws keep dissapearing? There are 6-;10 bad reviews, they dissapear, the more pop up, to just dissapear? This place has no on-site management, most of the structures should be condemned and the pool has not been open in several years.

There has been little to no investment in the upkeep of this property. The bath house is particularly disgusting; shower's don't drain, floors flooded, sewage smell in the women's room. Really - don't touch anything. Pool hadn't been functioning for several weeks. Our campsite flooded during unseasonably, heavy rains. If you are in a self-contained RV, this is probably an... More

The pool is still broken and has been for a while. I wish I would have read other reviews before going here. It was hot, the kids were miserable, And the person I made reservations Swift never mention the pool is broken.

I thought maybe the flies were just a time of year thing - but I went to the restroom just prior to leaving and it was fly free. The restroom facility, though older, was very clean. The entire two days there we fought with keeping flies out of our RV and truck. They colored my entire stay. I was just... More

The administrators are nice, but the campground was run down.The pool was empty. The highway was right next to it. Stay at Cedar Pass or the Primitive Site and you'll have a much better time camping or staying at Badlands.

Weeds all over, Mosquitos were abundant and the pool was under repair since 2008., rest rooms were in bad shape but clean., no fire pit or picnic table... More

We have stayed here in 2006 and it really put up in the mood of the Old West! My kids and I were treated with hospitality here. I didn't come here to swim. Originally, we came here, because my son, who was two, at the time, became very ill with heat stroke, so no tent camping. The manager opened up... More
