Sage Creek Primitive Campground, Badlands National Park, South Dakota

7 of 12

The Site: Bison—whole herds of them—regularly wander through this campground on the west side of Sage Creek’s North Unit. Sunset turns the surrounding mixed-grass prairie land (one of America’s largest protected tracts) golden yellow. At dusk, listen for the howls of the once-exterminated swift fox.

The Basics: 15 sites; covered picnic tables, no running water (park rangers will usually let you fill up with water at their entry stations before you set up camp), pit toilets; no open fires; tents and small RVs only (no hookups); no fee and no reservations.
