“an oasis amid the surrounding moonlike landscapes”

Located just outside the boundaries of Badlands National Park in South Dakota, the Circle 10 Campground and RV Park offers tent sites and RV sites with limited or full hook-ups. Just outside Badlands National Park, lies an oasis amid the surrounding moonlike landscapes.

Nice folks running the place. The location is great if you're going to the Badlands. We stayed here one night, and it was very quiet. A little run down, but the price was right.

We didn't actually stay the night here. We showed up late, set up our tent and saw lightning in the distance. A severe storm with hail and high winds caused us to pack up and keep moving. The place was pretty run down and over priced for my liking. But, it's right off the highway if you like convenience.

We came in at 6pm. Sign at office said they would be back at 5:30, but no one was there. No one was there when we left at 10 the next morning. The office was in the campstore, which was also not open all that time.

Just a gravel parking lot, sites seemed to run into each other. Couldn't tell if it was reserved, if it was one site or two, etc.

No idea about the bathrooms, but if they were anything like the rest of the facilities they probably aren't worth trying.

Next time, we will stay in the dispersed camping in Buffalo Gap or in Wall, rather than stop here.

This place is now called "Minute Man" RV and Motel. The toilets and showers are a little grim, it looks like they just add a coat of paint each year, several 9f the showers have out of order on the door. Sites are grass and roughly level. WIFI worked well , probably because there were not many people here. There was a pool here once!

Check in was quick and easy but it all went down hill from there. We were in site 29 and the utilities were at the front of the site but luckily we had an extension cord and extra water hose. As long as it was just us on the row we could run the air conditioner with everything else off and the refrigerator on propane. As soon as two campers hooked up next to us, however, our power blew with only the air conditioner on. We wound up having to use our generator to be able to run anything after that. We went over to apologize for the noise to our RV neighbor and he said he was having the same problem. I spoke to a lady in the office and she blamed it on everything from our surge protector being defective (we use it every time, at every campground) to us trying to run everything in the camper at the same time, as if this was our first time out. Never mind the guy next to us was having the exact same problem. We were told we probably were not hooked up to their electricity at all (silly because our air conditioner was running at one point ) so they were going to just charge us for a non-electric site.
The bathrooms were in pretty rough condition but I had a pretty good shower (plenty of warm water and good pressure) in the ladies room. On the men’s side though my husband did not have such luck.
The pool was empty of water and not in use.

We were in site 103 with plenty of room for our 35 foot class A, tow dolly and car. We had full hook ups with 50 amp. The park is very conveniently located just off the expressway with little noise. It is also just a stones throw from the National Park. Washer/Dryer was old but efficient. WiFi service was great for working. The downside, spots were unusual as one RV parked facing north and the next would face south. This would leave you facing right at your neighbor. Spots were tight so if you put out your patio mat it would be utilized by your neighbors stepping out of their RV. Lastly we also shared the same picnic table. In a pandemic that is definitely not a good idea. Currently appears new owners are cleaning the place up.

I stayed here using Good Sam discount for 5 nights total, 2 nights in site #104 for $38.16.night in pull-through full-hookup then had to move when I wanted to add 3 nights that was only water/electric for $35.30/night.

The park is pretty small but has lots of tent sites. The pool was still open and looked nice although too cold to use, in my opinion. The manager was very helpful and lived in the park so any issues could be resolved quickly. I didn't use the bath house but there were 2 washers and 2 dryers in the laundry room (takes quarters, 1.50 each w/d per load) one dryer was broke and the other didn't dry my clothes enough so I had to line-dry the heavy items.

The location was great, right at the eastern entrance to the Badlands National Park and across the highway from the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site; worth the visit if you have time (free unless you visit the museum).

What an over priced cruddy campground, if you can even call it that. Sites are over grown with weeds. No clearly defined sites, super crammed together. You can literally touch the rig next to you. Very few picnic tables or fire pits. Bathhouse is in need of a serious renovation as well as the entire grounds. Cold showers no hot water. Pool drained and appeared to need repairs. Right next to highway so you can hear the road noise. The lodge looks like something out of the movie psycho think Bates hotel. Better off finding some BLM land to boondock on

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Arrived without a reservation, they gave us a nice shady site. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Several persons were enjoying the swimming pool. Would definitely stay again.

The location is nice. You are directly in the middle of Minuteman Missle Visitor Center and the entrance to the Badlands - each about a mile in each direction. There's also a nice gas station and convenience center across the street. Very far from anything else - restaurants, grocery shopping, etc.

It's VERY minimally maintained park. It was fine for what we needed, full-hook-ups close to the above mentioned sites. It felt very sketchy pulling in - very old, trailer homes surround the campground, but we didn't have any problems and the few guests we talked to were very nice. We never saw any staff. They have very limited hours and never saw anyone walking around, although the place was clean enough. We didn't use their bathhouse. The pool has no water and is a dirty, eye sore. No amenities for kids, picnic tables and fire pits at some sites, not many.

This is definitely more of a stop-over spot. There are very few trees or anything else, so gravel sites are easy to pull in and out of. It was fine for what we needed - easy off the highway, quiet and safe, close to attractions. We wouldn't have a problem staying here again for those reasons, but I can't say I'd recommend it. Especially since the BLM area nearby is AMAZING. If it wasn't 104 degrees we would have opted to stay on the BLM, but we wanted AC.

Cell service has been fine. We have Verizon and TMobile and no issues at all.
