I camped here with my mom for 1 night in May and then I camped alone a week later. Both times were a good experience. The night I stayed with my mom, we got there mid-afternoon, so there were still sites available in the grassy inner circle. In the morning we woke up to a lot of buffalo, who are...

This campground has no power, water, or cell service, so come prepared! It has a pit toilet, which was very clean. We got in late in the evening and the sites were all taken, so we parked on the side of the dirt road, which worked out better as the sites can be uneven. We were greeted by a herd...

Sage Creek is a really cool place to camp. It's free, which is awesome. Very minimalistic as expected, but if you're lucky you'll get a shelter with a bench- this helps when it's hot out, as there is little shade elsewhere. You'll see lots of bison around, walking through the campsite; prairie dogs, coyotes howling at night time! Tip: Take...

Quiet sage brush meadow with no facilities except pit toilets - bring your own water - it fills up but you can camp without a picnic table anywhere in the area. Beautiful sky. It is a gravel road coming in but it's fairly well graded and our Prius made it with no problems, except for the 100 or so bison...

On our national parks vacation last month, my wife and I pitched our tent here for one night. We arrived at noon and grabbed a good spot with a shaded picnic table, and there seemed to be a few that were camping for over a week, but most folks were 1-2 nights and then moving on. The campground is a...

The campground is no doubt, wonderful but the sage creek road leading you there is horrendous for an RV. It's a very badly kept gravel road which is not signed as such and could cause major damage to any RV.. Not to be attempted! Better to go down to the Ceder creek which is just off the 270. Poorly signed...

We absolutely loved this campground and the badlands National park! Facilities are great and are very close to every site. The park rangers and volunteers that run the campfire program and stargazing program do a wonderful job. The scenery at night is truly something that I think everyone should see in their lifetime. Definitely stay the night in the park,...

Come for a great experience out in the boonies. Visited on a July weekend and the parking area was relatively full by the time I arrived at 9:30. There was still lots of space to pitch a tent. As some other people have mentioned, just be courteous to your fellow campers. I, like others have mentioned here, experienced some heavy...

If you want to get away from civilization, this is it. Our first visit to Sage Creek in 2004 was so incredible it has stuck with me as one of the better national park experiences I've had so when we were looking for places to stay on our recent trip (this time with 2 kids, 8 and 10). It's not...

This campground was not what we were expecting when they said "no services" online. We brought shovels and hand sanitizer with us planning on digging a latrine. But we were incredibly excited to see that they had a bathroom on site! Not one that flushes, but hey - it's a heck of a lot better than bare-bottoming it. It was...
