"We stayed in a one-room cabin for 5 with one small bath. There was a small fridge and microwave. Everything worked. The cabin was clean, solid, very well appointed and reasonably priced. The grounds were immaculately maintained and there were homey touches everywhere! The RV sites looked great and although I didn't check out the common bathrooms, I would expect them to be fine as well. Tent camping here would be neat. The scenery could not be beat! They have horses available on the premises for hourly riding or just watching. The Badlands are clearly visible. They have a pool and pond and the place is QUIET!!! There is a grocery store nearby in Interior SD but don't plan on eating at a restaurant. There aren't any in Interior. The best part, though, is the people. The hospitality was wonderful and genuine. This would be a great place to stay any time you went to the Badlands. It is a bit remote, but that just adds to the ambiance of the Badlands experience. Access is easy from I-90 via Interior. This is a GREAT place."
"The Badlands Ranch and Resort is definitely the place to stay when visiting the Badlands. We stayed in a small cabin with a full size bed and bunk beds. They each have their own room, yet no door separates them. There is a small bathroom with a shower. A fridge, microwave and satellite TV were also provided. Our son loved the place. There was a pool, basketball, volleyball, fishing, horseback riding and even a late night camp fire. The horseback riding should be not be missed. We went on the morning around 8am. There is also an evening ride. It was fantastic. Our guide Judy was great. We saw the most beautiful scenery and had an hour and a half ride for a great price. It was the highlight of our trip to the Badlands."
"... Met several friendly people there. Recommend the horse riding trip. Very beautiful scenery. Nice scenery situated about 5-7 miles south of the park."

"... we moved to the big log cabin on the lower level and have since stayed there 4 times! My husband is planning a retreat there for his siblings this summer. Don't expect a fancy dude ranch ... just incredible views, very friendly people, great horses, and quiet ... You can see the Badlands from the corral, but the kids only have eyes for the horses! The people staying in RVs there seen to really enjoy it. Usually a nice sociable crowd around the campfire, but you can also have all the privacy you want too."
