I cannot emphasize strongly enough that no one should even consider staying here. I made reservations in June for 3 cabins. We were to stay 1 night in mid-July. Based on their web site and some of the reviews it felt like a good choice. When we arrived, we found all the cabins were in a total state of disrepair.... More

2012, June - stayed here two nights. Expensive for having to be self contained. Employees rarely in the office. Park looked neglected. The restroom/shower house was closed. They did have a mobile home pulled in and you could use the bathroom in there, but it was a drive away from the camp area. A family pulled in, went looking for... More

This was the first and possibly most memorable stop on a long trip. We stayed at the ranch, and were surrounded by it's sheer beauty. The next morning, my husband was up at daybreak and took a walk while I slept, capturing the area on our newl camera. What a treat because we now have some wonderful pictures..

Like another reviewer, I arrived at 5 p.m.. Had a reservation for a one-room cabin and wanted to go horseback riding. The office was locked, the place was a dump, no people or horses to be found. The pool was so funny I actually took a picture of it to send to people as a joke. It was falling apart... More

Overpriced tool shed. Took two "cabins" before we found one that was livable. What a dump. I'm trying hard to see how this place was ever much. For $20 it would have been ok...sorta. The Badlands is a nice visit but I wouldn't spend the night around here again. A couple hours is plenty unless you're into hiking/climbing.

We were so excited to go to the Badlands Resort. I originally made a reservation about a month before we were going to be in SD. I was told by the staff at the badlands resort that there were two horse trail rides that went out a day that it had a swimming pool and their website indicated that they... More

We started our visit to the Bad Lands and per there Website it looked great. When we arrived I paid for a week But After 1 day we decided to leave and find a real Campground. It is under new management and it just went down the tubes. We asked and setup a trail ride and I was told they... More

Pretty area. The girl who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. We had a problem with the Cabin, there was no ladder to get to the top bunk. No chair to use as well. Put off by that and the cabin was very small. No end table or anywhere but the floor to put your luggage. Floor was... More

We stayed in cabin #10. Which was about 110 degrees when we arrived. It seemed it had not been stayed in for some time, and smelled musty and old. The A/C ran constantly with little to no effect other than to make it hard to have a conversation as it made only slightly less noise than an idling truck. Oh,... More
