Can’t complain about $12/night (Passport America rate) for full hookups and WiFi, but the Badlands Ranch and Resort uses the word “resort” a bit loosely. Okay, so they do have a pool, small lodge, cabins and horse rides.
We are just happy to have electric, since it was close to 100 when we got here yesterday. We would have preferred to stay at the National Park campground, but there are no hookups and no shade, so we ruled that out.
We did drive into Badlands National Park last night. We were amazed that the campground was at least 3/4 full, with lots of RVs and tents. The campground has some great views, if you can tolerate the heat.
We went to the Visitors Center, watched the movie, and looked at the interesting exhibits. Then we took a couple short hikes on the Door and Window trails. It was only 96 then at 7pm!
The pictures speak for themselves. This is an incredible place.
