We stayed here our second night at Badlands National Park (our first was at the free Sage Creek Campground). We could have happily spend a third night in the park, but we had to move on.
Cost was $16 a night for an unserviced site. Washrooms were flushers and were clean - no showers. The campground set up for most sites is that there is basically a little extra space on the road for you to pull your vehicle off and parallel park to the road. If you have a trailer/motorhome, that is where you sleep. If you have a tent, you can put it up somewhere within your designated site.
This campground is well located to the visitor centre and the hiking trails in the park. The sunrise with the light hitting the badlands was amazing. There was quite a storm during the night (I was awake for all of 5 seconds to take note of it) but there didn't seem to be any damage to anyone's tents or anything in the morning.
I would guess that the campground was 80-90% full. If it is full I'd suggest to carry on to Sage Creek - it's a bit of a drive but without registered sites there you will at least have somewhere to sleep, and it's free.
