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.
