Cedar Pass Campground, Badlands National Park, Interior, South Dakota

Set at the foot of spectacular walls of eroding sediment, Cedar Pass Campground is one of two camps within the boundary of the park. The other camp, Sage Creek, is far more primitive and only accessible via a dirt road that often closes after heavy rains. Cedar Pass is definitely the choice for RVers. The camp has amazing views of the Badlands from all 96 sites.  About half of the sites have electric hookups, which is nice during summer months when temperatures can approach the 90+ mark. July is the hottest month here, and late spring and early fall are the best times to come, as temperatures are more moderate. Sites within Cedar Pass are pull-off
sites, not back-in or pull-thrus, and as a result offer little space for slide outs or longer rigs. Sites are grassy and have a picnic table with shade canopies.  Campfires are not permitted. Sites have been recently been made available via reservations, and with stunning views and few options in the area, recommended. The Badlands Visitor's Center, lodge and a small gift store are adjacent to the camp. Night Sky Programs and Junior Ranger Programs are also available at the amphitheater and Visitor's
Center.
