Nice and quiet camp ground. The camp host were very diligent with the rules and regulations of the park. They had a nice manner and were polite in keep the rules. A couple of nice pull through for big rigs but most site were for a smaller camper or motor home. We just used the electric so not sure on the other services. Easily use dump station as you enter and leave park. The only complaint I have is that you can't walk your dogs on any thing that says Trail on it. So you either have to stay on the road or wade through the tall grass. I can see not being able to take dogs in the Park, but the small walking trails by the Campground would be nice. Still a very nice Camp ground and would stay here again. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We arrived mid day and despite the ranger's comments that they don't fill up the campground, there were only 3 possible slots for our 36 foot motorhome. No power, dump station is along the road. Arrive early if you have a big rig... because of this experience, we decided NOT to try the campground at the South Unit of Teddy Roosevelt National Park. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Dry camping with asphalt camp roads and sites. One or two water faucets. Many sites pull-throughs by side of camp road, others back-ins for tent sites. Two loops, larger for vehicle sites, smaller for tenters. Lots of large cottonwood trees. I did not see limb obstruction problems. Larger loop has a nice flat meadow in center. Bathhouse with toilet and sink, no showers. Host was selling firewood he had split. The one way park road goes west along the rugged bad lands with beautiful colorful strata layers and views for 7 miles with buffalo herds seen. A very pleasant campground and scenery ride. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Camp host helped us find a good spot. 35' motor home w/towed. The site was level, no problem with trees. Rained, no problem with drainage. Quiet. Really really quiet. Hosts were excellent, knew the area and where to go for best chance to see wildlife. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

As other said, no hookups, no cell reception (some Verizon up on plateau, and very delayed maintenance on tree trimming. Our mid sized 35' motorhome would fit in several sites but not with low tree limbs but 42 was fine. No reservations but were full on Fri/Sat of Labor Day, but many left on Sunday, probably from the much needed rain. However, the trails became very muddy and slippery so we stayed only 1 night and just drove the 14 mile scenic drive. Saw a few buffalo along road.

This campground could use some tree trimming so larger rigs like our 40-footer could use the facilities. I loved this area and found the park to be nice. Sites are large but limbs make them not available for most units. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

If you enjoy dry camping, wildlife, great vistas, and do not have a long rig this campground may be for you. We camped in May 2016 and enjoyed nice weather and fine wild life viewing. The bathroom was clean (the campground was about 40% full) but the sinks were limited to a single, spring-loaded, cold water faucet. We camp in a 33' MH with toad and there were a limited number of sites that would accomodate us. No campground hosts but a ranger came through at least daily. Site was level, partially shaded, and gravel. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

What a gem of a park! Wonderful location - a little nerve racking to get to it going north on 85 from I-90 with all of the oil tankers. Most of the sites are wooded but sites 42, 43 and 44 are clear for satellites. There is evidence of Bison in the campground but none came through while we stayed there. I would have given the park a 10 if they would have at least had electric hook-ups. The temps were close to 90. We had no problem getting a site - there were many empty ones and most folks seem to only stay one night. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

$5 per night was the senior rate—$10 otherwise—for a primitive site on a level asphalt pad with a pedestal BBQ unit and picnic table. There were water spigots throughout the park as well as at the dump station. Wildlife, including bison, show up in the campground. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. Cell phone service on AT&T is only available in few places as you drive the undeniably beautiful scenic loop. Ditto for Verizon data coverage. There was no over-the-air TV but we did receive NPR radio. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Great park and great campground. Unbelievably scenic. Great trails and views. Quiet. Hosts were welcoming and informative. Rangers suggested activities. No hookups. Flush toilets. No showers. Paved pull through sites. Big rig friendly. No fire rings. Provided grills may be used for campfires or you can use a raised fireplace for campfires. You may gather downed wood for campfires. We didn't see any buffalo. Would stay here again. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the best campgrounds ever! We saw herds of buffalo and longhorn sheep. All facilities were exceptionally clean and there's tons of trails and nice folks here. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Stay here if you want to get away. No TV, No Verizon, no generator from 8 a.m to 8 p.m. Nice to tour the area and take hikes. We have a 40' MH and had no problems with the pull through sites. Host needs to trim some trees that encroach on the sides of the access road in the parking area. Will scrape any size vehicle. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is a primitive campground five miles into the north unit of Theodore Roosevelt NP. The closest city, Watford, is fifteen miles. There are normally 50 pull-through sites but due to the flood, 25 sites were closed for repairs. At the entrance to the campground is a dump and water fill station. The bathroom with flush toilets is open during summer season. Most of the sites are large with surrounding trees and bushes. There is a picnic table and pedestal grille at each site. We were unable to get telephone reception with Verizon. There is an emergency phone line at the camp office. There are several nature trails nearby. We would have stayed more than 2 nights but the bugs and no a/c made it less. desirable. We would love to return at a milder time of year. The cost reflects senior pass discount. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

GPS N47.59393 W103.33521 Very nice dry camping. Golden age rate. Watch out for Buffalo in the campground. I liked the North unit of TR park better than the South unit, but others may disagree. TR park is more scenic than SD Badlands NP. More color. See all three if you can. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

A jewel in the NPS campgrounds if you are self contained. Buffalo & deer are right in the campground, neat. It is a beautiful park, enjoyed our visit and wish we had stayed a week. One night is not enough for this park. We enjoyed it very much and will return one day. We camped at Juniper Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
