Boondocking near Badlands NP
There is nothing like solitude, peace, and quite.
That’s why we love boondocking waaaayyyyy more than staying in an RV park. We planned a visit to the Badlands NP after leaving Sioux Falls. We wanted to visit Rapid City again, and it’s right on the way. I looked on Campendium.com to see if there was a boondock spot near the Badlands and lucky for us there was.
Boondocking is certainly more cost effective than an RV park, and who could pass up all this space. RV parks are just way too crowded, and peopley for us.
This boondock spot is between Wall, SD and the Badlands park. It’s been so rainy all over that we were a bit worried about getting in. Thankfully, the mud here dries fast so we had no problems.
We even got a beautiful rainbow after we got settled. And the sky…the skies here are unreal.
We parked right on the edge so we had a pretty impressive view.
We woke up to a beautiful sunrise.
And the neighbors were fabulous.
I have seen a lot of wildlife, in a lot of places, but I have never seen them as relaxed as these bighorn sheep were.
We could here coyotes howling, meadowlarks chirping, and the occasional buzzard buzzing by. I would build a house right here if we could. I am simply in love with the wide open spaces of this part of the country.
I can see for miles, and miles, and miles.
