For an unknown reason, Badlands National Park intimidated me from afar. I wasn’t sure that it was a park I wanted to visit (alone). Being budget-conscious, I didn’t want to spend money on hotels, so I booked the campsite despite my fears. Coincidentally, this park ended up being my favorite!
Let me start out by explaining that there are two forms of camping—with a tent or just your vehicle. Both techniques are technically considered car camping because you have your vehicle, and both are excellent ways to immerse yourself in nature and explore national parks.
