On our way to Badlands we were looking for a place to camp. Circle 10 is right off Rt. 90 across from a Conoco station (good place to fuel up and get snacks. The man who checked us in was very nice, the sites were $26 for tent only. Showers and restrooms were sufficient although not pretty. It was a... More

Our first impression was "desolate" but the campground suited us for our overnight RV stay. As RV newbies, it was easy to park. After moving a picnic table to our site and helping to remove debris from the murky yet refreshing pool, we used their adequate shower facilities and decent wi-fi. Staff were friendly and helpful. I-90 noise didn't disturb... More

IF you absolutely MUST have 50A FHU and you want to be close to the Badlands of South Dakota, this is a good, if not only, choice. Nice pool, pull-thru sites for coaches, good power and water and sewer. Kids enjoyed pool. Park is being remodeled with new playground equipment and motel portions being upgraded and refurbished. Noise from I-90... More

This review pertains to the campground, not the motel. We were happy to get a place to stop for the night but in the end we might as well just kept on driving as sleep would be hard to come by. The location is immediately next to I-90 and all night it was the non-stop sound of trucks rumbling along... More

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.
