Cedar Pass campgound is awesome! 18.99 per night, and the only camping facility actually in Badlands. It's nothing special, I mean this is camping! They have showers, toilets and water and gorgeous views of the park! Which is all you need!

I gave it 5 stars because I think it's the most convenient National Park campground I've come across. Lacks for privacy though but it's still better than staying outside the park. The nighttime view is nearly impossible to beat.

5 Stars for location location location. This is the only campground in the actual Badlands National Park. When we arrived we were told someone took our reserved spot, we wouldn’t fit there anyway, and wouldn’t have wanted it since it was next to the dumpster. We were kindly directed to a side road location away from the crowded main campground - it was a beautiful spot with a small tree, a view, grass, and covered picnic tables. No electricity or water but there was a station for water and dumping. We didn’t use the public facilities so I can’t speak to those. The astronomy presentation was great and they gave out patches to the kids. Amazing experience.

“Shaded spots and full hookups” a bit misleading... when you see shade you think trees, well, no trees, picnic tables are shaded. Also when I see FULL hookups, I think water and electric and usually sewage, I must have missed something because we had 50 amp electric but no water. Not only no water but the bath house had pay showers, never seen that before. But hey we had GREAT views!

- Clean functional bathrooms and showers
- Reasonably priced (Approx. $20 CAN)
- Right next to a beautiful trail network

- Minimal privacy at the sites (open field)

Basic campground. Main Bathroom in middle of campground has clean showers and updated flush toilets. Plenty of trash bins and a campground host. Very windy but beautiful star gazing opportunities. We stayed one night.

Our campsite was pretty decent, although the shade they say is just one shaded overhang for the picnic table on the site. Bathrooms were about average in cleanliness, but the view is breathtaking.
