The Beauty of the Badlands

The wind continued through the night and into the morning. We woke around 6:30 am. The skies were still grey, the wind was gusty, and there seemed to be rain in the air. I was thinking it would be with us all day. We headed up to Cedar Pass Lodge, within walking distance of our campsite, to have breakfast. Well, there was only a buffet and it was …

Night 4: Badlands, Stormy Nights From Mitchell to Badlands NP Today we drove 268 miles, 65 or so of those being within Badlands NP. The weather changed as the day went on. We had a thunderstorm with strong wind while we were trying to sleep in the tent. By daybreak we had quite a bit of sunlight and this continued most of the day with temps topping …

... including a T-rex that looks for food every 12mins, a giant 6 foot bunny with horns and more western themes that you could shake a stick at. After a wander round we found a nice parking spot in one of Wall Drugs car parks and settled in for the night.

... separated by hallways with pictures, plaques, dead animals. Quite charming in its own way. Good thing it was closing after we’d been there an hour, or it would have been hard to drag the kids away. Q was especially thrilled by all of the ‘jackalope’ merchandise available.

... ice water, we each had a cup, and now up to 20,000 people each day stop at Wall Drug.

As we started to search for a place to stay we realized that all of the commonly known hotels were already booked for the night. We managed to find a cabin. It wasn’t the classiest place we ever stayed. However, after we shoved the towel under the crack in the door to help keep out the 111F heat and hopefully the mice, the place was okay. Jon says we stayed in better places in Tibet ...

    A Campsite in the Badlands

    Cedar Pass Lodge Campground and bathhouses (modern) were clean. The campground was simply a wide open expanse of grass - few trees, if any. I don't recall. No privacy either. Tent sites were close together. However, most tenters are friendly folk and maintain an etiquette about noise levels and intrusion. (This doesn't apply to tenters in NY state though!) There was a picnic table at each site with a slat board shade over it. Kind of like half a covered wagon...we saw these in other parts of SD too. Must be their state 'picnic table design'. The lodge has a limited supply of packaged food for sale to take out - fresh sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Beer, wine, milk, water, and sodas are available. Some other grocery items like cookies, cereal, chips in small packaging. No bread or eggs! There is a restaurant in the lodge. Saturday breakfast was a buffet - no menu items available. The buffet was not appealing and it was costly for the mediocrity of it. If you need a place to crash while you explore the Badlands, this is good place...18.00$ per night. Be sure to bring in your own food!

    This is an amazing place, these Badlands. The staff here was overly accommodating. There is a restaurant here near the campground and a store with gifts and some supplies. It is inside the park and the Badlands Scenic Loop is just around the corner. Just sitting at your campsite you view these great mountains. It is easy to get to and I would definitely suggest a stop here.

    Great place to tent camp. I love this spot and always stay here. Books up early only on the weekends. Bathrooms clean. Camping is under $15. Views cannot be beat.
