Default Badlands October 3rd

Me and my dad are going to be there on the 3rd its the first Sat in Oct. we are heading down on friday and going home sunday.

Any one wanna meet up down there?

I have never been this park and it would be great to have someone that has been there before with us.

Post up any info you have on the park.

We are going to camp out so it should be kinda cheap. This place says they have free hot showers.

Im thinking the most costly part is going to be gas to get there.

I like summers campground, it is short drive to the park. Last time I checked the badlands campground was alcohol free and it's like camping in the middle of an empty field.

the price is right, as long as your not loud there will be no probs. just don't bring a golfcart,sled and a towstrap. Impromptu powered kneeboarding can break out.

yeah, surprisingly enough no one was kicked out

who cares if it like camping in an open feild....you spend most of the day wheeling and basically only sleep or wrench in the campground, and yes the showers are hot if you know how to use the knob

It's a good time there. You could probably sneak in a 12 pack- (at night) just don't get too lound and rowdy and you'll be fine. And don't drink and wheel!!!

Lots of awesome granite rock faces to climb up- just use common sence- don't try to nail it getting to the top. You'll break or flop.
