Cedar Pass Campground Tent

Tent Camping Sites

The vast open prairies of the Badlands contain a variety of plants and animals. This variety and the relative openness make the Badlands a naturalist's paradise. In an effort to maintain the prairie grassland, fires are not allowed within Badlands National Park. You may use small, portable propane grills at your campsite for cooking.

Campsites for tent camping for 2 persons are equipped with a shaded picnic table.
